I'm about 15% in at the minute, I should get further in at the weekend. I'm not finding this a struggle to read at all  ;D

Oh and @Eclipse, feel free to open discussion on the first couple of chapters when you are ready - I'm further ahead than you, but I will jump back to add some thoughts.  :)

Will Do  ;D

is that sarcasm or are you really not struggling? It is a little dense I suppose...

No sarcasm, Gardens of the Moon I found harder to get into to start with, I was bit surprised at all the DNF reviews who gave  up on Goodreads.

I can sort of understand it with Gardens but not to the extent where people go on and on about how difficult it is. It's not exactly James Joyce!

Also, have you guys mentioned this anywhere other than the misc thread for Malazan? I hadn't seen anything about it, and searched and saw it there. There might be others that don't read the Malazan discussions that might be interested. And apologies if you have, I could have easily missed it.
