It just keeps going and going and going...

I'm STILL reading The Historian. It's finally starting to move at a somewhat faster pace but I've just already put so much time into it that I've kind of lost interest. I think the style of this book creates problems. 1) How do you tell people the plot of your book when there's 3 different timelines going on? I've tried to describe this book unsuccessfully several times. 2) It's like Heroes: when you're trying to advance three different stories in flashes, it takes a LONG time to make any of them go anywhere. 3) I've been reading it so long with so little progress in the stories that I'm just done. I don't know if I'll ever finish it! I will. It might just take a while.

  1. Sybil I have the same problem with The Historian! I started it back in October and haven't finished it yet. I have about 200 pages to go. It is just so .... boring. Interesting historical details, but sloooooow moving plot. If you finish it before I do you'll have to let me know if it is worth it.
