When this first came out, I got it from the library queue and didn't make it past page 50, I found ti so painfully slow.
I grabbed a paperback at the library last Thursday. Today is Tuesday. Yup, I'm done.
A nice and complex story with believable characters. I enjoyed the author's method of storytelling, when you're not quite sure where his new chapter is, or who he is talking about.
If it had been any more gory, this would have lost a star. Or two. I am sure many would say it wasn't. But it was more than enough for me.
