review 1: I will say up front this book is a very difficult read especially at the beginning. Many authors -- even the best among fine wordsmiths -- will compress time within a book the further along it goes to get it to move faster. They take their time creating the world their characters...

review 1: I really liked everything else I've read by this author particularly the baroque cycle, anathem, cryptonomicon. I'm sure it's partly because of my political biases but this one annoyed me. However, more than that, it failed to deliver a plot that was as interesting and original ...

review 1: I grew weary of reading the word, "intently". It felt like a blow to my head with a wooden sword every time I read it. Once it appeared three times on the same page. Other instances of adverb overuse appear throughout the text. I'm curiously dissatisfied after completing this ...
