did not like it

Without a doubt the most _boring_ thing put to paper. It's all about the rocks in the Sierra Nevadas in some of the most obtuse prose this side of David Mitchell. I don't like to accuse books of "putting me to sleep" since they usually don't. But I was out with the kindle on my chest and the light still one twice while trying to read this sleeping pill in book form.
