I love books. I used to be a voracious reader, I’d read at least four or five books a week, more if I was particularly free or just in the mood to read.
Over the last couple of years my appetite for reading has declined, and my concentration span has disappeared.
I haven’t read a book that was more than, like, 300 pages in months.
Well, I read Inkdeath, but that took me over a month, which is a horrendous amount of time.
The other day, when I was in Kingsbry and the lads were LANing, I got bored and picked up one of Mark’s books, The Night Watch, by Sergei Lukyanenko.
I have to say, it was excellent. I got really engrossed in the story, and there were enough twists to keep me guessing until the end.
Although, when I’m reading I don’t tend to try guess the next plot point, I just see where the book takes me. So I guess there were enough twists to keep me entertained.
Will have to rob the Day Watch and the Twilight Watch before the lads all move home.
Oh, one thing that really annoyed me, though, were the minor spelling and grammar errors. I know it was translated from Russian, but things like mixing up accept and except? That’s just a lazy proof-reader!
