Gilead by Marilynne Robinson

So, a few posts ago, I mentioned a review of this novel, which intrigued me. I promptly put it on my reading list and finally picked it up this weekend.

45 pages into it, and I’ve decided to close the book. I’m going to skip this one. Why, you ask?

Because it’s tedious and dull. It moves slowly – and not in a good way. This novel has bored me, and in doing so, it doesn’t catch my imagination or inspire interesting contemplation. I like books that make me think, that interrupt my dreams. This one does neither.

The review was better written.
