I should probably take a look at a few of these pics. You know, just to make a sound and reasoned judgement on their appropriateness

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

Sounds like good advice


Hey Jono,

I haven't had much time to read so I am still only about 200 pages in to the Historian. You and several other people have told me what a good book this is, but it seems really slow moving to this point (roughly 1/3 in), is it all like this or does it get better?

i guess that depends on whether you find it slow-going because it's a complicated set of storylines that take a while to fully set up, or because of the action alternating alternating btw the A, B, & C stories.

i enjoyed the multi-layered narrative, since it's kind of a story about stories, but this does pose its own challenges.

do the interruptions bother you or are you not enjoying the extensive groundwork. i always found the action-y scenes to be really breathless & suspenseful, so maybe you're just not up to them yet.

hope you enjoy it (the Historian, not browsing dirty drawings)!

Jono has sceered me off. I guess I won't be looking at them. I don't even own any surgical gloves, just mittens, and I'll be needing them when it gets cold.

In my case it is the REALLY extensive groundwork, I don't mind the breaks or the 3 layered story at all. I guess what I find so tedious is the over descriptive nature of page after page of every place she goes and the slow nature of revealing what's in these letters and what happened. To me the idea that you would read one and then be to tired or put them away for weeks and do this monotonous traveling is just crazy. But I am only at the point where she is going on her own and that guy found her on the train, so there is plenty left I know. It's just amazing that it took 200 pages to get this small amount of progress in the story IMO.
