Hmmm...  You might want to give it another try--it's been five years
now, but I recall my interest rising considerably at some point after
the fire.  _Titus Groan_ has the considerable virtue of containing the
best "now it's personal" fight scene in all of fantasy literature.  I
liked both _Titus Groan_ and _Gormenghast_ and still took considerably
longer to get through them that I do most books of that length--I had
to mix them with other reading to avoid overdosing on whatever it is
about Peake...
