Since I haven’t scored an ARC of Drood, I’ve been waiting for my copy from the library (see below!). That would normally be a fine way to read a hot new fiction title, but not this time. You see, my library has Drood on a ‘high interest’ list so I only have the book for one week. It’s 750+ pages, people, and I have to work and care for my family. I’m a fast reader, but I’d defy most folks to finish that book up in 7 days. My library won’t buy more than one copy because of County budget cuts. Suck!
So I’m sad. It had to return to the library today and I only made it to page 206. Brilliant and wonderful p. 206. I LOVE this book. I might never love another thing Dan Simmons has written or will write, but I LOVE this book.
Now I’ll buy it!
