This book just wasn't engaging. I did finish it, hoping that by some chance it might redeem itself for the use of my time. I enjoyed the talk about medieval manuscripts, but that isn't enough to make me glad for an entire slow-paced novel. Grossman is a writer who is super into the understated, but this book just falls flat. But I understand his pacing techniques better now for The Megicians, etc.
