I'm about eighty pages into it. I have over 500 more to go.
I was very excited about this one because I loved Otherland, by the same author. I expected something original, with characters I actually cared about. This book, however, seems to be nothing more than cliche epic fantasy, and it's really dull. Various names and worldbuilding details are inserted, but it's all useless, because I don't even remember any of it.
I already bought the whole Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn quartet. (The last three books were half-price at Borders' going-out-of-business sale, so I took a chance. I only bought the first book recently.)
I plan on giving this book twenty more pages. If it doesn't hold my interest by then, I'm giving up. (I almost never give up on books.)
My question to you: Has anyone read this book? Is there any reason I should continue with it?
