Right now I’m reading this apparently very popular modern classic:
I’ve heard Matthew Colville call it his favourite book for starters, and some love for it here as well but… I don’t get it much. I’m around 200 pages in and, well, it’s not that I’m turned off but I still have no idea where this book is going and I have 800 pages to go and the new Expanse novel is looking at me hungrily. It’s not like i dislike it, the characters are interesting and the English translation has…functional prose, but yeah I don’t know where this story is going.
So can anyone, without giving any spoilers, reassure me to keep going with this book? Why this is regarded as so fantastic? That this book actually goes somewhere? Because I don’t want to give up on my sixth book in like two/three months.
