I do love his writing style, and in general I enjoy the books' politics. I don't know, though, the overwhelming tragedy and unhappiness that cloud every moment gets to be a bit much for me.
I can't say I wasn't warned, though. Time and time again I was told to stop reading the book, or to imagine a happier ending for myself. That made me grin!
But although it reads like a parody of diablus ex machina, it really is just a humorous celebration of it, I think.
