I am no one to judge this masterpiece but I will tell you the reason I gave it 1 star less.
It was a very
tedious read. I fell asleep 4-5 times while reading, I'm not joking.
Secondly, the world is too
vast! There are so many characters, so many creatures, back stories, so much of information is dumped every now and then that I kept getting confused and everything just got mixed up in my brain if I tried to read more than 50 pages a day.
Nevertheless, it was a great pleasure reading this book, with such beautiful writing and poems in-between. I'm totally exhausted right now and need to read a couple of light books before picking up its sequel.
