Loved it..hated it

I have really mixed feelings about this book. Generally, I like 3 storyline plots. This one is an exception. I loved the 1732 storyline, but struggled with the other 2. All the Portugese terms and words were distracting. The glossary was a huge help, but constantly going back to it became a drudge. It's a shame, because Ian McDonald is a good writer. The narrative parts of the book and the overall plot were great.
