I really liked this book.
First the bad: Too much. Too many characters, too many pages, too many emotions, too many plot twists.
But that's why I liked it. It's a serial and should be understood as such. Are there pacing issues? Yes. Continuity problems? I've only read it once, but surely there are. Dumas is not Tolkien to go fix a full moon that shouldn't be.
Dumas works with characters and what they'd do when faced with an unstoppable force.
I do have problems with the book (Haydée and her ending) but it has become one of my favourite books that I know will reread many times in the years to come.
