At this point I am not even close to sure how I feel about this book.
In the beginning I thought it was cliche and full of references to other works, but I still wanted to know how things would enfold themselves.
After a couple of weeks hiatus from reading all my other thoughts about it was forgotten, and I just wanted to finish it (also powered by my usual lack of sleep). I think did enjoy it to some extent, even if the story often seemed to lead to nowhere, things were kind of messy, and in the end it all seems to have been for nothing, like you've only read the first chapter of a book. I know there's a sequel, but I have no plans to seek it out.
