Firstly, and this may well have to do with my age, there were a lot of people to have to keep track of. I had to stop reading sometimes, sit back and conjure up my memory of that person. There were times I was bothered by having to do this. But this, actually, was also a behavior I enjoyed. It had been a long time since a book has caused me to stop and actively think about what I was reading... While I was still reading it. So it was both a pain and exciting.
Now that I've seen there was a previous book, I'm debating whether to read it. I'm intrigued to learn Kate is the protagonist in that one, but am wary about it being too sluggish at times.
