A story about this — 6 years ago
I started today, and I’ve read a 1/3 or so of the book. In the begining it was rather difficult to get into the story – the cast of the main characters is largish, and when the author switched the PoV it always took me some time to remember who was who, and what they were like. It also took me time to get used to May’s writing style.
But now I’m growing to really, really like the book. I’m already attached to the characters(esp. Steinie the Viking and Aiken); the writing style is nice and picturesque but not overly descriptive (which I like), and I got really pulled into the story.
We’ll see what happens later on…
