did not like it
bookshelves: science-fiction, owned, tried-to-read-but-failed

First 100 pages: lots of names, places, weird alien races, and some kind of war going on. No characters that I liked or events I cared about. Will not be reading page 101.

Beth Aw, damn. I bought that at half-price a few months ago.

message 2: by Phil (new) - rated it 1 star

Phil Maybe you'll like it better than me. I have a low tolerance for fantasy and scifi books that try to throw too much weirdness at the beginning.

message 3: by Beth (new)

Beth Ah, yes. Usula K. LeGuin has slowly trained me in the art of patience in the first 150 pages.
