I hope I didn't wreck it for you with my complaint... but now I'm thinking I need to check it out again and give it another try. A writer I respect, Ed Ward, loved it. I might not have given it enough time to get going (although I was 1/3 of the way into it). Maybe, maybe not.
 
I'm reading an old Neal Stephenson now, the Diamond Age. For some reason I missed that one, I've read everything else of his. Yes, even the 3000-page one.
 
Somebody left a bunch of "Jack Reacher" paperbacks up in the Ski Patrol shacks so I've got 4 of those going concurrently. Mostly interchangeable, mostly crap, but total book crack. As mysteries they're really not very good and he always tries to throw in a twist that makes you go "ahhh what?" but you see it coming a mile off. Or it's just impossible. But they're addicting anyway and it's words on paper so that's better than not reading, right? Right?  

 
Nah, I was having trouble myself. I perservered, and it did get more interesting, and I did like characters, but the whole book is basically about just a few days in time. 

I like reading on my Kindle because it gives me defs of words I don't understand, and Chabon is quite the wordsmith. The annoying thing is that it doesn't give you pages, it gives you segments.

I agree, any kind of reading expands your minds and stirs your creativity. Readers Are Leaders!

Finished the first chapter last night.  So far, it's interesting.

I'm 65% through (kindle informs me) and I am finally getting into the story. I really enjoyed his other books.

I'm a big fan of MC, but it's taken me awhile to get moving in this one. 

It could be because I am reading on a kindle. Too many other distracting things going on there also.
