This is definitely not a "book for the masses". The plot is rambling, and the prose takes your full concentration to really extract the meaning. This isn't a book you can easily breeze through. But if you have the time and fortitude to stick with it, the ending is quite interesting. It reminds me of "Rebecca" by Daphne du Maurier (in style, not plot or substance): The plot seems to wander aimlessly, with no obvious point, until the end when it all suddenly and unexpectedly comes together.
