This was very, very long, took such a long time to get interesting, then turned out to be a setup for a sequel without a satisfactory ending. The introduction of a mysterious, hidden, magical world at the beginning was disrupted and undermined by the alternating chapter focuses, which should have been introduced much later, or with different characters so they could be done with more subtlety—instead they acted as a drag on the speed of the story and a spoiler to the whole plot conceit. While there was a lot of fun stuff, and I liked so many of the characters, and I really wanted to like this book, it was so long, and at times, such a slog—and to add insult to injury, basically none of the umpteen mysteries were ultimately resolved.

Most excellent. Exceedingly funny and strange. The novel reads like the best of Vandermeers short stories and novels with huge doses of familiar bits from the world of fantasy. Having some knowledge of fantasy stories will reward your reading experience. Further having some background in Vandermeer's novels and stories is great as the novel has tons of little easter eggs from his previous works, not in anyway that will make you 'have to read them' to understand the novel but for those who have read vandermeers books - it will be delightful. Regardless the novel is delightfully wacky and hilarious. The lead up and so forth, yeah lots of stuff happens, but not to much of a resolution. But - that said - its freaking fantasy - and it sold as the first in a two volume, essentially four novel series. So, there is ebb and there is flow and there are parts that are lull. But all of it is exceedingly good.

Super great fantasy read. The audio book is just stunningly good as well and for such a big book with a cast of characters the SINGLE reader made the book really come alive. ( )
