They are usually much faster.

    I think they heard me complaining! It finally became available and I picked it up at the library on my way home from work. Got through a whopping 12 pages on the bus ride home - but I like it so far. It's not nearly as dry as it sounded (maybe I haven't gotten to those parts yet). I like the made-up words.

    Through part 1 - slower reading than usual, and more tiring too! I find myself rereading a lot to put words in context. My brain hurts from trying to keep all the vocabulary words straight (and he even snuck in some obscure real words too - like "selvage"- but I think most of the new words are just made-up). I'm interested to see where he takes it from here.

    Cool! I'm hoping to get some more reading done on it this weekend.
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    Sorry, but I have given up on this book. It took me 45 minutes just to get through the first 10 pages because of all of the unfamiliar terminlogy. Usually, I read pretty fast and can get through 100 pages or so in an hour. I kept having to go to the glossary and then looking up the term in the glossary, I'd encounter some other terms I didn't know, so I had to look those up as well. It's like you have to read the entire glossary first to even have hope of making sense of what's going on in the story. Seems awfully backwards to me.

    I guess that sort of reading just isn't my style. I like faster paced stuff and I don't mind new terminology but define the terms right there in the story itself rather than making people refer to a glossary.
