I also found the huge canvas with all the various characters a difficulty at times.

Here is a link to a character map made out by a member of Library Thing Group Reads; It's in the first post and simply gives character relationships. It could easily be adapted to provide a growing mind-map for the individual reader. Some readers like to add bookmarks or location references on a progressing mind-map to passages they find significant.

Spoiler Alert: Looking at the next two links could possibly result in spoilers.

That said: The second link is a character summary from SparkNotes:

And the third is from "Friends of Ted" Texas English Department:

I suspect there are lots of others of a similar nature. Frequently some pb editions include character relationship lists.
