I started this *checks* about six months ago, made it through half of it, put it aside and only picked it up again two days ago to read the complete second half. I guess this means the pacing didn't quite work for me. And full disclosure: I still skimmed bits in the second half. The sex scenes were pretty meh and somewhen I had reached the point where I was tired of reading witty banter for the sake of witty banter.

Did I still get teary-eyed at the Disney-esque Love Conquers All scenes and the image of a less crappy world? Yes. But in an unusual turn of events, I think this would have worked better if it had been a novella (or at least somewhat shorter).
