    There was no hook to suck you in, and it was awhile into the novel before characters became distinct. However, if you read to the end, not only did you get the payoff of where the title came from you got the payoff of lovely writing. There was a rhythm and a lull to it. It could easily put you to sleep! There was a timelesness to the story. There were moments when words like "computer" and "automobile" came up, and it was as if you had to remember the book was being written now, and not 100 years ago. That contributed to the tranquil quality and the sense of being lulled in the reading.
