Really one of the great qualities of this book is that it succeeds in dropping us into situations, places and surroundings with characters we either get very attached to, or are wary of. We are even ambivalent about some that seem to straddle the good guy/bad guy demarcation line. I really like this ambiguity. And I absolutely love this world. I’m travelling and dreaming in it, with all kinds of different feelings; there are characters that you want to keep track of and also others you would like to know a lot more about.
