    1. I started this book weeks agod then life interrupted me all my reading was put on hold for a while When I started to read it again, a few days ago, I found it slow and plodding to read, but I persisted because I thought it would take me a while to find my way back to reading again find my momentum again But I really wasn t enjoying the early part of the book because it was slow, meticulously detailed in its descriptions, and very gloomy Then there was a point when the book suddenly exploded into [...]
