OK. I am going to give The Book of Life by Deborah Harkness–the final book her trilogy–a second chance. I loved the first two! So I am wondering if maybe I misjudged the whole thing as I raced through it the first time (see my initial reaction on Goodreads). Was I too hasty?
I don’t want to be angry with this book. I want it to do everything it should do (and do it well.)
Perhaps reading it through a second time–taking it in slowly–will let me know if I was completely off base. However, it might just irritate me more to know I was not wrong the first time!
