it was ok
Read in March, 2009

I'm on page 731 of 1130 and I'm throwing in the towel. After 731 pages I have no idea where the author is going with this book - there seems to be no story arc and the stories which are being told are disjointed and seemingly distant. I'm sure there will come a time when the different stories converge, but I have no desire to continue. Stephenseon is a very detailed writer and his book requires focused attention - this isn't a light read. Maybe it's because I have other books I desire to read and this book is just taking too much time. Whatever the reason - I hate doing this - but for the second time in my life I will close a book before it is finished.
