I'm about 30 pages in. So far I have to agree with everyone that it has been a slow read. It is interesting but doesn't seem to flow all that well. The author seems to be spending too much time on the backdrop and not enough on the story. This is sort of the same problem I have with Tolkien. Anyhow, I'm a trooper and am commited to finishing the novel. I have high hopes that it is going to pick up dramatically and end well.
