Two stars for what I did read: history-slash-biography, all okay. Unfortunately I only made it a bit past the 100 page mark, as those first 100 pages failed to engage me, so much so that at one point I forgot I was reading this and started an entirely different book. I'm leaving the bookmark in place when I put it back on the shelf, so maybe I'll come back to McCourt's book some day. Maybe.

David "proud member of Branwen's adventuring party" "those first 100 pages failed to engage me, so much so that at one point I forgot I was reading this and started an entirely different book." YIKES! That could be the ultimate reason for a DNF right there...plus, it makes me think we should all create a "I-forgot-i-was-even-reading-it" shelf! ;)


Cari Might just be one of the worst things one can say about a book: "It wasn't bad, it was just so boring I forgot I was reading it." At least you remember bad books!
