Maybe it has something to do with my having started it on a day trip to 
London where I could only read it in snatches on the tube and while 
waiting for buses etc. (buses and reading don't mix for me) but I have 
also found it not particularly gripping.  I love some of the writing, 
but that hasn't stopped me putting it aside to read another book.  I 
will go back to it soon, though.

Perhaps Verdigris Deep is more my thing.
