I tried. Perhaps if I wasn't reading 5 other books at the same time I'd be able to get my head around this. The cast of thousands didn't help, and I struggled to keep up with the new characters/creatures as they were introduced. I found many of them weren't distinctive enough to remember for longer than the paragraph they were introduced, meaning when they were referred back to after several pages I had no idea which of the many was being written about. I'd like to like this, but at the moment I just can't cope with it. Slender possibility that I'll come back to it at some point. If I was convalescing after a long illness, maybe.
