I’m not getting into answering any of the questions from my Book One post. I am not giving a status update on where Green Peas and Tengo are now. I’ll just give a brief reaction without spoilers.
I could easily walk away from this book. Here I am just about 600 pages in — only 300+ to go, and I have had over a week away from it.
Will I finish?! Yes. I’m curious. Mildly curious.
Some books come along and you read them and it really doesn’t matter if you *liked* it or not. Just one of those books you are glad you read, just so you can (show off and) say, “Yea, I read that.” No argument, maybe some discussion, but just glad to be in on the *know*.
Will I change my current rating of three stars to four? Will be so excited to say I read all those pages and then give it a higher rating or will it all come together and I will find it awesome in spite of the accomplishment?
I really do not like chunksters…
I honestly think I could forego finishing and still be satisfied with my imagined ending of Aomame and Tengo finding each other and living happily ever after.
If I don’t get this thing done by March 1, when I begin a readalong of Cloud Atlas, 1Q84 may end up DNF.
I feel like a contrarian.
