Based on the gravity theory proposed recently by Horava, we work out how perturbations behave about the vacuum of the theory. We observe two different strong coupling problems: one associated with the principle of detailed balance (an elegant but not essential ingredient of the theory), and the other, as a result of the extra degrees of freedom from breaking Lorentz invariance. These problems suggest that General Relativity is not recovered in the infra-red limit, as was initially expected.
