    Anyone read this? I bought it and am about 150 pages into it and it is not making any sense. I have no idea what it is about. Do things start to come together or is this it?

    I felt the same as you when I started it. It took awhile but it does make sense and I ended up enjoying it. Not a book for everyone but a good read with an involved plot line.

    I'll give it a few more pages then. I usually give a book 100 pages then decide from there whether to continue. Since this is a pretty long book I might need to give it more time.
