it was ok
Read in February, 2011

Man oh man, too bad the whole thing wasn't as engaging as the last fifty or so pages. This whole book was really uneven in terms of narrative focus, but that may well have been the point. I did appreciate that it was never difficult to follow the family lineage, as I've experienced with similarly themed books. This, however, took far too long to slog through as there didn't seem to be much point until the end.
