It has been maybe ten years since the last reading, so it might be time to read it again.
Over the last 25 years I have tried to read this book at least 8 times. I have only made it about half way. There is something in it that will not allow me to finish. I need to try and finish this before I die.
Not sure what it is but I can not seem to get over the hump? I have never had this issue with any other book?
