For the month of September our bookclub is reading The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet. This book is very good, but very LONG! I have a paperback copy with littler print and my copy of the book is nearly a 1000 pages.
I like the epic story, I like drama and the suspense and all of the storylines. But, I have to admit, I was getting a little overwhelmed by it all near page 600. I just wanted to know: did Ellen’s curse really work? did Tom get to finish his cathedral? does Aliena find love? does William die a horrible and painful death? did Richard regain his Earldom?
So, I gave up. I started skimming and answered many of my questions. And now I wonder, do I have to go back and read the other 400 pages?
