It felt that it never ends.
Katherine Neville’s book The Eight seemed interesting, when I saw it in the bookstore. Another book about chess and old mystery. Nuns, murders, history and the present day. When I started to read this book I was expecting an entertaining reading experience.
It wasn’t so entertaining, it was a bit boring. The book just didn’t convince me. It has 667 pages and it took me ages to read it. Sometimes I read the same number of pages in three days, when the book is good and interesting.
The idea of the book was good. Not very original but good. That good idea didn’t help, it just was too long. The narrasion was not fluent, I felt that it took a long time to read just one page. This book may be an international bestseller but it didn’t impress me. Sorry.
