A Little Surprised
Last week, I was so confused between Our Mutual Friend and The Mystery of Edwin Drood, and I can’t say I was eager to read more. It’s not that I didn’t like the writing (I was actually impressed with the level of detail in the descriptions), but it was so much to take in–characters, odd names, strange events, etc.
But then I got into Edwin Drood, and I hated that it ends with me hanging. Worse: my iPad indicated that there were 451 pages, but the story stopped on 439!
Maybe Our Mutual Friend will grab me in (if I cheat and read ahead)…it is pretty clear that I like to read in one go.
