Okay, with the rather strong possibility of getting my head bitten off... here goes.

I've only read about 2 chapters.
I'd read the Synopsis online, and pretty much jumped in from there.
My first thought was, has this been badly translated?
Apparently not. As the author is Australian.

I'm hoping it improves, as I've read a couple of reviews now, that state that the second half of the book is definitely better.

However, so far - I've found the writing to be rather stilted (the complete opposite of the promised lyrical), and difficult to follow, as not only does the author continuously switch between first and third person narration, but also between character POV. So just as you begin to acclimate with either a character or style - she switches it!!
