Really mixed feelings so far. I'm enjoying the descriptive language and character development, but there's an awful lot of navel gazing. Unfortunately, that seems to be a common affliction of "literary" novels. Really bogs the story down, and I keep having to rewind because my attention wandered off in the middle of some long-winded introspection by one character or another.
