Too Acadmic for Me

1out of 5

by HoldenSCaulfield on September 7, 2007

First off, know that I did not finish the book. One hundred pages in I decided I'd rather read something that seemed to be heading somewhere. I was hoping for something with more depth, more character, more intrigue--more James, actually. I didn't necessarily care that it was slow moving; but I did care that there didn't seem to be any progress toward something. All it seemed to be was snippets of James' life with no real development, no plot, no question. Perhaps it was going to be like some sort of pointillist painting that only made complete sense once all was said and done and you stepped back, but I didn't make it to the end. And if you can't get the reader to the end, what's the point?
