Has anyone else read this yet?

I'm finding it a bit on the light side, and a bit too credulous. A totally different reading experience from her very excellent "Longitude".

I got it two days ago and started reading it. It is OK so far, but not nearly as good as her early works.

I've just finished it. I'll try not to spoil the ending, but it does get better.

Still, I agree that it is not as good as her earlier works.
