Full disclosure: There was no way I would get the whole giant multi-plot book read in the time allotted before it had to go back to the library, so I only read the Blay/Qhuinn/Layla plot, skipping everything else. And that was the best decision I ever made when reading a BDB book. The rating above is for that plotline only. I'll read the rest when the mass market paperback comes out and I'm not under the gun to finish quickly.
I do have to say one less than positive thing: WHERE IN THE HELL WAS THE LUBE?
