Around page 120 my interest started to wane. It’s been a page here and there for days now. I’m at 140 something now with about 300 to go. So, is it worth it? I can read 300 pages in about four, 1 hour sessions, if I’m interested. If I’m not, well… And I find his writing style very awkward. At first it seemed fresh, but that is rubbing off to the point of being annoying. Example: The seemingly irrelevant interludes between chapters; do they make sense at the end, or are they just random musings? Also, every character, no matter how minor, gets a complete run-down on their appearance. This annoys me to the max; imo, now don't get me wrong, his characterization is second to none, but please get on with the story! The same with tone, sometimes a snack is as good as a feast. Most of the time I would just put a book down despite the time invested, but I’ve heard so many people go on about how awesome this book is. So I’m loath to throw it away if it is indeed a fantastic book. Has anyone else experienced this?
