I'm not the exact fan of Vollmann (have read only The Atlas and it was fine, but nothing breathtaking); haven't read anything from Seven dreams series, I'm not an American and English isn't even my first language.
So I asked how is it; to know if it's worth getting and reading (and, possibly, what's good about it and why is it that good). Maybe a little bit of a discussion, you know.
