It's a good thing I'm listening to this book and not reading it. I'm on chapter 8 and I just realized that nothing has happened. Everything up until this point has been mostly background and setup. If I were reading this I'm pretty sure this would have been more evident a lot earlier, and I probably would have put it down by now. It makes for good listening before bed, but things better pick up soon, or it still might find it's way into my did-not-finished shelf.
