I like it very much, it's a great work, but many people list it among boring books...
Wanted to mention it but I forgot That's one of the hardest books to read!

I had to read it in college, and couldn't finish it. I found it soooooooooo dead boring!
Right now I am reading a book called The villa of mysteries, by David Hewson (had never heard about him before). I started reading the book eagerly, but it has disappointed me. I am trying to finish it because there are just about 90 pages left but it's becoming such a hard task! I find that book so boring... I am forcing myself to read, and that's not good, but I just want to finish it.
Oh, other novels I couldn't finish was Price and Prejudice by Jane Austen and master Dickens's Great Expectations I am really embarrassed to recognize that, but I found them boring as well I guess I should re-start them again and with more passion, it's so sad for an English philologist not to like those great English classics
