- Locke Lamora
- February 28th, 2013
So I've been trying to read the second novel in Scott Lynch's Gentleman Bastard Sequence.
I honestly don't know what to say about this one. I started reading about a month ago and I'm still only a little way through... I just can't seem to sink my teeth into it.
This being said, the same thing happened with the first in the series: The Lies of Locke Lamora. I began just before my school term started and I didn't finish until well into the holidays. I did, however, finish. At the time I put it down to the fact that I was busy with work/school/everything else, but now I'm not so sure.
Don't get me wrong, I quite like the feel of the book. The dialogue is witty, the characters well fleshed and the universe carefully constructed, but something SOMETHING is delaying progress. Hell, I've even read two books in between! The truly baffling thing is that I can usually put this 'readers block' down to something obvious, but nothing is leaping out as being in any way bad!
Still, I suppose I will finish eventually. It will probably be later rather than sooner, however.
Oh, and here's this just because I find myself incapable of listening to anything else at the moment.
That is all :)
