Sarasand asked:

I'm 135 pages in to the 700+ page book and feeling it's too slow going to invest more time. Is it really worth finishing?

Haben Yes! The beginning is slow because so much time is spent establishing the major characters but, if you're reading the hardcover version, you are literally pages away from a significant reveal about Jude's past. After that, the story will grip you. However, if you still aren't sure by the time you get to the end of section II, try giving section III a chance. If that doesn't do it, then ya, put it down.
Joan Schleinkofer Yes! I'm a little ove 400 pages in. Keep going.
Judith Gotwald I'm about halfway through and committed to finishing. There are moving sections in between the parties.
