You see, those first 400 pages (only half the book) have been a struggle, one lasting for months and months and months. I have probably been reading on and off for six months, and I’m still only half way through. It’s not even that I’m not enjoying it (I am), it’s just sooo long. I can sit down for half an hour, and only read like ten or fifteen pages.
Another reason that it’s such a tricky decision is that I’ve got a great pile of books on my to-read shelf; most importantly, the new Patrick Ness book, ‘A Monster Calls’, which I have been looking forward to reading for a while.
I just wish I could get stuck in, and hide myself away for a few weeks and get it finished. But, that’s pretty tricky with exams and all that shit.
So, help me out internet.
Should I finish it?
