I found this one...curiously distressing, even though I went into it knowing it would end on a cliffhanger. The family members who'd only read To Say Nothing of the Dog were particularly puzzled by me being upset and kind of depressed by the book; but then again, I've read The Domesday Book and they haven't. It's well written and fairly engaging even when it doesn't look like it's going anywhere particular-I read it pretty much straight through in a couple of days.

My own hunch is that things will end comparatively well, plotwise, in part 2, but I still found it kind of an emotional rollercoaster.
