It started out quite nicely with delightfully quirky characters. And then went... nowhere. I kept waiting for the characters to find themselves in this other "world", Aegypt, but half way through it became obvious that Aegypt was really only a concept. The way the world once was, but changed to the world we live in now and no one remembers it. The main character half-way remembers it or something and decides to write a book about it. Close to a third of the book was excerpts from made up historical fiction books that happen to support the Aegypt theory.
So now I'm reading A Feast for Crows, which I saved for my holiday break so I wouldn't have to lug a hard cover around with me. Other than not being able to remember some of the point of view characters, it seems to be okay so far. Hopefully it will break my run of books that don't live up to my expectations. Although, seeing how the first three books in the series were so good, I'm probably setting myself up for another disappointment.
