I am currently reading this. No one writes like Hilary Mantel. Events are very detailed and read slowly, and then a passage suddenly hits you like a freight train.
And this is a story of The French Revolution: war, blood, anarchy, science, philosophy, a doomed monarchy. What took me so long?
I used to read entire books within days. Now it takes me weeks. Maybe our ADHD social media-addled society is to blame? Or maybe it's just me. Enough with the excuses.
