Another One Done

Well, I just finished The Mill on the Floss. And I hated every second of that book.

It was like the Seinfeld of books. A book about nothing. Except without the comedy. Nothing happened at all until around 250 pgs in. And then when something did happen it was all misery and pain and that annoying Victorian self-denial.

I'll probably start Frankenstein tonight, as I had a training session at work today and found out that I'll be working a minimum of 26 hours this weekend.

I've never heard anything good about Mill.

Ugh - 26 hours is a long time! I can't remember much about The Mill on the Floss but I remember thinking it was dull at the time - you did well to get through it.
