it was ok
Read in October, 2008

I liked the first book very much. The story, the characters, the idea--everything about it-- are unique. But the prose, so welcome and so unusual in the first volume, wore me down within the first 50 pages of Vol. 2. This was an absolute struggle to get through. I am glad it's over.

Ariel I agree. Vol. 2 just didn't seem to follow through on the promise of the Vol. 1 ... it became much more historial fiction than a character study.

Kelly I agree as well! I set it aside several times, and only finished it so I could give it the chance it deserved. Too bad, because I loved book 1.

Janis Yes! I'm getting through it via audiobook as I travel to work--but sometimes I just turn it off because it isn't enjoyable. Nearly done and into the story enough now, but what a time it has been.
