35.0% "This means I've read roughly 280 pages. I'm finding it hard going, TBH. I just DON'T CARE about anyone in it. Well, maybe with the exception of Gascoigne. It's just wordy for the sake of being wordy, I think. There's not really any great prose. It's just stuck on minutiae I don't care about. Just get on with it! I'd be nearly finished any other book. I'm still persevering. I don't want it getting the better of me."
