It took a while to get through this book (books?). It's a tome.

At times while reading it, I experienced what I can only describe as the equivalent of watching a Japanese action movie with an English dub. The actor's mouths move 5 times faster than words I'm hearing and it looks comical and absurd. Don't know if that's a translation thing, or if much of the internal monologue and dialog among the characters really was clunky.

Still, it's an interesting story. Not sure it required 3 volumes / 900 plus pages to tell it though.
