I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
I can see why other people enjoy this. I might actually do better with an audio book version, as I really struggle with humour on the page.
But at least I'm not hating it, so there's that.
