This is it. I gave it a try and now I am dnf-ing.
I find it plagued with too many details, it's cold (not just the weather), boring and depressing. It fails to hold my interest for more than 2 paragraphs at a time. I don't believe I will ever pick it up again, unless I run out of all of my reading material.
I am rating the 25% that I've read so far. 2.5 stars.
