Reading 2018-09-21

In this post:

I ended up trying for a chapter a day rather than a chapter a post, so that's two chapters since the last post, and one left in the part.

The most recent chapter is pretty much as I remember it, and I kind of feel like it's getting into the same tonal area that got me fatigued with the previous version of this I read.

I've tried explaining this before, and I think I must have done a really bad job... It's hard for me to take in such a depressing sequence of events and feel hooked, like I want to see more. Clearly this is a matter of individual taste, since other people have read much more of these drafts. Like, I think the air of hopelessness is intentional, but it's just not working for me.

Or maybe it's not intentional; like I alluded to, I tried explaining this earlier, and it seems like my wife wasn't seeing the same things in her work that I was.

I just wish I could get this to make a bit more sense, because it really feels like she didn't get why this was so hard for me.

I mean, I know I'm not making too clear of a case here, because I'm not going into any specifics at all.

Next time, the last chapter in this part.
