I'd say if you didn't enjoy the sewers, you probably won't enjoy the rest of the game. Fargrove represents the more chore-like aspect of the game (i.e. lots of running around in a nicely done but very un-varied and unfinished environment interspersed with annoyance encounters like snakes and bats) while the sewers represent what's best about the game (i.e. varied and interesting dungeon design with lots of tactically challenging encounters… interspersed with annoyance encounters like snakes and bats ). The one big exception in Fargrove is Custard Mansion. That "dungeon" is a really good one, if you're playing the CE.

So, in summary, if you feel the payoff of dungeons like the sewers is worth the chore of the in-between parts like Fargrove, go for it. If not, don't bother.
