I consider myself well-read and can easily become absorbed in a story, but I really struggled all the way through this book. Some passages were absolutely beautiful and others were far too drawn out. I was VERY disappointed in the ending. I won't spoil the story for anyone but I felt cheated when I read the last few sentences. I stuck with the story all this time for that ending? Reminded me a bit of Cormac McCarthy in some places, but at least Mr. McCarthy gives an ending you can accept even if you don't necessarily like it. I will not recommend this book to a friend, even with its very detailed character development and often beautiful imagery.
