I think that perhaps I heard a bit too much hype about this book before reading it. It was good, but I didn't love it. I read it over many weeks, which is not something I usually do when I'm into a book. I'm very impressed with the book. The way it is written is unique, and the author is clearly very talented. Putting all the pieces together was fun, and probably would have been more so if I'd read the book over a shorter period, requiring less remembering of who certain people were and how they connected together. The story itself, however, didn't really pull me in, which is why I took so long to read it. I will read other books by Egan, and I certainly think she's a writer for these times. I'm just perhaps a bit traditional in my tastes to be overly in love with the book.
