Read from March 15 to 22, 2010

It has never taken me this long to get to the half way point in a book and decided it wasn't worth finishing! The index says that Karen Chance is a History teacher and I could tell by her writing. She would mention the word "magic" then we would get a history of where the word comes from, who discovered it, how certain people use it, etc. I would start to get into the story then we would have to have a history lesson about what was happening. I have to say that I love history but not in a fiction story, granted some back story is always needed to make the reader understand the story, but there was just too much in this book. I wanted to finish but I have to say I find myself getting to frustrated just thinking about the book to pick it back up.
