I liked this better than its predecessor, Wool. It is a compulsive page turner because you do want to find out what happens (happened?). But it just takes so long to get there! I know it's an omnibus of shorter works, but when it's all put together I just want it to move faster. Couldn't it have been edited when it was combined to one work to take out the repetitive bits? Sigh, the problem is I will go on to read Dust and have exactly the same complaint!
