An interesting yet ultimately frustrating book. I have never encountered such a wandering POV with intricate sub-plots and overlapping story arcs. This morass of four books reads like 100 short stories with similar characters that give you no chance to accurately track them. The book has 994 pages, and I've waded through 692 of them. I will likely wave the white flag and give up on it in the near future.

Aside from reading untold instances of people behaving badly - what is the goal of the author? Was he paid by the word? Not my cuppa tea, I guess. But after reading tens of thousands of books (really) this one just doesn't make it worth my while. I may skim the remaining 300 pages to see if something there warrants the work, as that is what this tome represents to me - lots and lots of unrequited work. Be forewarned.

I predict you will either adore this book, or like me - be puzzled and decide to walk away.
