A Discovery of a whole lot of unnecessary words.

A Discovery of Witches - Deborah Harkness A Discovery of Witches (All Souls Trilogy #1) - Deborah Harkness

I wanted to like this a bunch more than I did (which, having read a bunch of reviews, I find is a common reaction). At times I felt I was drowning in boring, irrelevant detail! There were just too many long, dull, descriptive passages, which I suppose were trying to set tone or mood or something, but were basically just enraging. 

 

Still, the story was interesting enough that I'll probably read the next one, even tho such a big deal has been made of the fact that the relationship between hero and heroine has yet to be consummated that I'm rather terrified of what will happen when it finally is (please God, no long, dull, descriptive passages!)

 

 

  Finally, I'm amused to note that the edition I actually read (pictured here) has its description on Goodreads in Spanish. No, I'm not going to use my librarian powers to fix it. Some other schmuck can sort it out. Does that make me petty? Probably. Do I care? Not a bit!
