But let me say this, if you like Steven Erikson's work, you would probably like this book, they are very similar in the way they approach things.
Wonders occur without being spoon-fed to you.
You're led to view even the most mundane realities with slightly different eyes.
This is what fantasy novels are supposed to be like.
If you are interested in sci-fi in at all, do yourself a favor and READ THIS BOOK!
Speculative fiction depends on its world building and the questions it raises. The former is strong, the latter, well, maybe I'm missing some level of allegory. Otherwise, like all fiction, it depends on characters, story, and writing, and those are all solid, if not spectacular.
The world he describes is wonderful, full of mythology and strangeness. A very different world but still recognizable.
Gene Wolfe is now officially one of my favorite authors.
