World Without End

Or should I say book without end. I read Follet's book Pillars of the Earth back in 1990 and really enjoyed it. And I didn't dislike this one either. It was a good character driven novel. But dadgum this book is long. Not only is it over 1000 pages, but those pages are big and crammed with small print. It annoys me to read 100 pages and feel like you haven't really accomplished anything. So despite engaging characters in an interesting setting the length of this book is the thing I'm left with. Good luck and godspeed.

I just bought "Pillars" to read over the winter.

Good luck Capcom. It did me in for reading for a while. I've read about 40 pages of Survivors of the Chancellor in a month. And thanks for The Fall recommendation. I stuck it in my Netflix queue. Though the length it is, it'll be a while before I get to it.
