Not for me. Seems this book has almost unanimously been deemed 5-star worthy, but I'm rating it based on my personal feels. It's bleak and that should appeal to me in theory. But I suspect the investment I feel in any characters is mostly the product of just spending so many pages on them. I would perhaps have dropped the book entirely had I not been waiting for something to happen, something big. The things that happen are mostly in the background though.
