Unburied? Unfinished!

First of all, let it be known that I adore a sprawling good read. I love Dickens and Wilkie Collins, with their deep complex plots and characters. Palliser's books however, including this one, just fall flat for me.

I finally trudged my way through to the middle of this book, and I won't be finishing it. I'm neither interested in the characters, the plot, the "mystery" or anything else this book has offered thus far, and I have no desire to find out the remainder.

I read Palliser's The Quincunx a few years back and felt the same way about it (see my review), though I managed to finish reading it. I guess Palliser's 'blatant' style of writing and plots are just not my cup of tea.
