This for me was a very frustrating read. I bought it as my very first ebook while moving from Ireland to the US so that meant I was very slow starting it and maybe as it was an ebook - and could be read at any time anywhere on my phone, I didn't read it so much.
Having loved all his previous books (particularly the Bas-Lag novels), I had high hopes for his first SF book. When I finally finished it 8 months later, I found that I had many times given up on it, it being so over the top on the language/grammar as to be almost annoying. I see what he was trying to do but it was too much for this stalwart fan.
Hopefully he will get back to Bas-lag soon - I need another fix!
