somanysusans I'm going to read it because I've heard such good things, although it's not really my genre. Participating with a group sounds fun!

Trisha | 31440 comments okay, I have it.

do you want me to set a reading schedule so we know we can get through this HUGE book!

My copy has 1006 pages....and 69 chapters

2 chapters a day looks like it would be about 35 pages...

Jess | 780 comments 2 chapters a day sounds good.

how are you liking it? it's a little tough to start
it gets easier to read for a few chapters...but now it's bogging down in weird details again!


message 20: by Jess (new)

Jess | 780 comments It's pretty interesting. It sounds like the plot is going to be interesting as well.


message 21: by Jess (new)

Jess | 780 comments Oh, yeah. The details are weird. Some of them don't really seem necessary.


message 22: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments alright, I think I'm throwing in the towel Jess

I've tried...I'm almost 200 pages in
and I'm just miserable reading it...

I'll definitely try again...but I don't think I can make it through this time

how are you doing??


message 23: by Jess (new)

Jess | 780 comments I'm probably not going to finish either. I haven't really made any progress with it.


message 24: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 2 stars

Trisha | 31440 comments ugh, for me, it hasn't gotten any better.......
