Reading progress update: I've read 384 out of 457 pages.
The House of Storms - Ian R. MacLeod

a pity about all the typos infesting this edition (a "soldier" is not a "solider", even if you type it that way twice), and it's running about a 3.5 rating with me overall--it's dreamy, hypnotic quality is its biggest strength, but also its rather numbing weakness, but I will say that it has been fun, returning finally to something as inarguably Steampunk as this; I have an innate fondness for even the slow-moving ones. I shall solider on with this tonight, until the decks are cleared for a Crime novel of some sort.

couldn't resist going just a bit further with this tonight--but now, as tiredness sets in, I will have to stop reading with the knowledge that two characters have reunited--at last!--even when I feared they would never see each other again...but I shall have to wait until tomorrow morning to find out what they have to say to each other while I have a muffin and a coffee.

Klade has discovered--quite late in the game--some truths essential to his peace of mind. so he searches. Ralph, older now, also knows the things that were hidden from him...but in his case, it may be too late for true peace. an intriguing book, but with dense prose that demands concentration, so I'm not likely to breeze through and finish this any earlier than tomorrow night. anxious for a creepy Crime novel afterwards, probably something older.

Part Two has subjected me to a focus shift, as I've been (rather grudgingly) pulled away from the always-entertaining Alice, Ralph, and Marion, and have been introduced to Klade and his world of the Chosen, as he goes out and sees how the Outsiders live. I hope the book stays engaging, though I do see Ralph's name occurring later, if I do a comforting little skim of what's ahead.

it's a wonderful novel, so I picked it up again tonight and made it to the end of Part One. it seems that Ralph is going to have a hard time getting control of his own destiny.
