Christina should I stop it? I am in the chapter where Theo sees the girl for the first time after the accident but I have to admit that I don't find the whole story as interesting as I first thought...a lot of details, monotonous setting and a very slow progression of events..Without making any spoilers, does it become more interesting later on?

Jenna (thisisjenna) | 153 comments If you didn't like the beginning, I think you should stop. I liked the book a lot, but the details and slow progression of events (which I suspect are part of the Donna Tartt's writing style) continue throughout the book. As far as the plot goes, it gets worse (around the middle) before it gets better.
