The Book I Couldn't Finish
I've watched the movie on television and delighted in it quite a bit however, the book moves so much slower and jumps around quite a bit. The book invariably ends up back on my to-read list never to be finished.
I'll call this book my mountain. It is 875 pages in length in the soft cover edition I have in my mitts. I've read longer books that were more stimulating.
If you enjoy the writings of Mark Twain you'll most likely enjoy reading this particular novel. Currently I am reading a book by Mark Twain and am again having difficulty getting into the book. Perhaps it is the writing style that I don't enjoy.
Another book by Allan Gurganus I've yet to read nor purchase.
