Have to say, I am on page 613 of 1362…so not even halfway through this book yet. Honestly if I had known how many pages the thing was before I got engrossed, I probably wouldn’t have started it. There are very few books that should ever need that long for the story to be told – it makes me wonder why it took the author so long to get around to the meat of the thing. Is it because he got too wrapped up in the story or because he got so lost in useless details that he kept droning on and on.
We didn’t meet the real “team” until about 30 pages ago – the others have all been people I cared less about and hope meet a terrible fate in the house. Really, the characters up till now have been truly worthless and unlikable. However, now the Kennedy team is put together and they are a way more interesting bunch. I have already picked out two of my favorites though I think they are both a little whacked.
The book is holding my interest and, for the most part, the story has zipped by so fast that I was surprised when I found I was in the latter part of the 500’s. I doubt I will finish the book tonight but I will try to. 🙂
