It is a comparative endeavor. The Davies was finished earlier this afternoon and I did enjoy it, though I am not sure if it was as well received as Rebel Angels. I will likely finish the trilogy eventually. Here's a quote from Nick Hornby:

I recently discovered that when my friend Mary finished a book, she won't start another for a couple of days -- she wants to give her most recent reading experience a little more time to breathe, before its suffocated by the next. This makes sense, and it's an entirely laudable policy, I think. Those of who read neurotically,however -- to ward off boredom, and the fear of our own ignorance, and our impending deaths -- can't afford the time.

I find myself very much in agreement with Mr. Hornby.
