I had a real hard time with getting past the first half of this book. Maybe because I hadn't read book 1 in the series. Or maybe because the pace is "painfully" slow. I was always a big fan of Mark Twain's work. However, as a main character he is not very interesting. I had a hard time figuring out if the characters were in Purgertory or a forth dimension or Heaven or what.I will try to look for the first book in the series and see if it helps.
