I know, I know. I only put this on my reading shelf yesterday.
Never let it be said that I don’t give a book a fair chance, but I am full of admiration for anybody who was able to read the Note to the Reader at the start of this book and continue on to the next page.
I have a strong distaste for historical novels, matched only by my antipathy towards astrology. And, double damnation, it’s a Booker winner.
I’m moving on.
