I've only gotten this far by skimming a lot of paragraphs. Not so much the dialogue, just a lot of the long descriptive info-dump portions. The book has an insanely high number of those. Guess what? You can mostly just skip them.
And what's with the random use of the second person pronoun instead of the passive voice in the middle of the narrative? This is the second time I remember noticing it:
"You reach the loft by a steep companionway at the back, next to the kitchenette."
The other instance was on page 131:
"You come into a wainscoted hall, a door at the far end, on the left a wooden stair leading up to the second floor."
