Ruth | 1325 comments Just finished reading this book and I have to say that, although there were some pacing issues at times, overall I LOVED it.
I think what made it - for me - such a compelling read was the rich and varied cast of characters, and the great little moments nearly all of them had illustrating their strengths and weaknesses.

A few examples:
Wen: (view spoiler)
Hilo: (view spoiler)
Kaul Sen: (view spoiler)

Anyone got other character moments that stood out for them?
(and there are no dogs in this book)

There are no dogs "on screen", but there are dogs.

One of Shae's neighbours has "a tiny dog with the size and charm of an overfed rat".

Dogs are mentioned in other parts as well.

As a slightly off-topic side note, Lan's name made me laugh. In Chinese, it means blue, and the guy seemed to be blue in the book. The particle "se", used as "familial endearment" according to the book, makes this even more explicit. Lanse in Chinese refers directly to the color blue.
