Gates of Ivory

I’m thinking about reading The Gates of Ivory by Margaret Drabble. A friend loaned it to me, and it’s on my list of books to read. I’m just a bit put off by life-threatening chaos and the mention of finger bones on the blurb on the back. So, has anyone else read the book? Is it interesting, and should I soldier on past the first chapter? Or is it something I should put aside, so I can focus on poetry instead? Or should I wait until I read the other 2 books in what sounds like a trilogy?
