I got interested in this book when a good friend of mine and a colleague mentioned that he's reading it. The pure mention of subject made me interested. However, my friend warned me that he was hooked at the beginning but soon started struggling with it. Confusing characters, skipping from one to another and from one part of the story to another between chapters, unimportant digressions, repetitions and missing technical details are more or less the cause of it.
However, simple facts in this story are worthwhile, as well as the stuff between the lines.
