I got this book to review through the Read It & Reap project.

I admit that as I am writing this review, I have not finish reading the story. I also admit, that it will take me a really long time to actually do this. With a bit of luck the time from first page to last won't go to Tolkien-esque proportions. (As I mentioned in another review: Over ten years and I'm still at chapter six of the Fellowship of the Ring.)

That said, what I've managed to read was quite fascinating.

Yes, the story evolves a bit slow, but it's the kind of slow that makes one watch three hundred episodes of anime just to find out what happened to a paticular character from the first episode. I actually want to find out what happens next. It is just that I can only read maybe a page of the book every couple of weeks.

I like the magic, the technology, the whole mythology of the story.

This is a book to set on your bedside table and read a bit when other books don't find your fancy.
