This is the book that I've owned the longest and yet haven't finished. I'm pretty sure I've started it four times... and I still haven't made it past page 75 alive. It's not that I'm bored by the story, it's that I simply don't have enough time to read 100 pages a day. (At that pace I'd be finished the book in under two weeks, which would be ideal, except for the fact that I keep picking it up a few days before final exams, which never works out well.)
If I can finish The Pale King
alive, then I think this'll be my next project.
