OT: Tad Williams and Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn

A question for any who've read Tad Williams's "Memory, Sorrow, and 
Thorn" trilogy. I'm almost finished with the first book, "The 
Dragonbone Chair", and I'm wondering if anyone can give me advice about 
whether it's worth pushing through and finishing it and going on to the 
next book in the series. It's an ok read, but it's not thrilling me 
deeply, and I'd like to know if there's an unexpected payoff or 
something unique that comes later that's worth working for. Or should I 
just put it down and move on to the next thing on my very big 
to-be-read pile.

I really loved Williams's "Otherland" series. So I thought I'd try this 
one. It's not grabbing me enough to immediately run out and buy 
everything I can find of his.

Thanks for the input. (Not that I need anyone's permission to put the 
book down, I just want to know if I'll be missing something special if 
I do)


Blessed Cecelia, appear in visions
To all musicians, appear and inspire:
Translated Daughter, come down and startle
Composing mortals with immortal fire.
