the claw of the conciliator

On Sunday 29 September I finished The Claw Of The Conciliator by Gene Wolfe, the second in the Book of the New Sun set. I went for the second after the first because of the style and the ideas; the second had that, but continued to be a bit too directionless; it didn't feel like enough things were resolving, or enough progress being made. I enjoyed it okay, but not enough to go on to the third one.
