I've tried to read this a couple of times in the past and failed, simply because I just don't think it's as great as its reputation would suggest. This time I was determined to finish, but doing so didn't change my overall opinion of the book. I agree that it's clever in places, but sometimes it feels like it's trying too HARD to be clever.

That said, I am extremely hard to please when it comes to fantasy and sci-fi fiction, so my opinion should probably be taken with a grain of salt.
