One thing I am having difficulty with now that I am around 20% of the way through is the sheer amount of characters and different sub-plots. I'm used to a bit of flittering around but this book sees so many different points of views that when you put the book down for a day and pick it up, you kinda get a little lost. Even when reading through continuously, the jumping around gets a bit annoying.
I'm not saying it's a bad book.. no.. I am just saying that it is on such a grand scale in such a condensed form that I am having trouble keeping up.. :S
