I just couldn't finish this book.
The descriptive writing is beautiful and paints a vivid picture of life in the hills near Tibet. So much so, that I found myself googling pictures of the towns and clothing worn by the characters. But unfortunately, there was just TOO much description for me. The story seemed secondary and slow paced and I just couldn't muster the strength to weave through all the adjectives crammed into every page.
I concluded after I had read more than half of the book, that it was just not for me. I had lost interest and didn't care what the outcome was. Time to shelve it.
For those that like descriptive writing, you might want to give this novel a try. Like I said, the author has a beautiful way with words.
