I'm thisclose to being finished with Flood of Fire- just like, one and a half chapters. So I'm really hoping by next Monday I should be done. It's good, and it's coming to a head. I can't wait to see how it all ends.
Then I started another chunkster this week, Kim Leine's The Prophets of Eternal Fjord. It's a Danish bestseller about a young minister who's sent to be a missionary to Inuits in Greenland in the 1700s and encounters some weird things. The book starts with a grim execution, then cycles back in time to the end of the minister's school days, then jumps five years to a point that I think is just after the execution of the opening pages. That's where I am, about 100 pages into this nearly 600-page book. But I'm telling you, this thing flies. I'm reading it for a book club so I have a deadline and I know I'll meet it.
And I'm still working on Cities of Salt, which I hope to finish by the end of the year. I've given up on my re-read of Night of the Hunter for now, and I started a crime novel I am probably not going to finish as well. What can you do?
