The Faerie Queene, Book One
The Faerie Queene had rested on my nightstand, glaring up at me for two weeks. I finally admitted that I do not want to force myself through it, and end up hating it; therefore, I put it back on my bookshelf because I know I cannot keep up. I do not want to struggle through it. You readers know, forcing yourself through a book may also take the joy out of reading. My life is too complicated enough right now, and I am craving a different kind of reading experience. Maybe I'll try it another time.
But like I said, the reading comprehension is challenging, and you need to have a clear head or it is not going to keep your interest. Sadly, I am not even in the mood to put any effort into a decent post about this. You can find superb reviews by some of the others who have already written about it, like Jean @ Howling Frog Books, Cleo @ Classical Carousel, and o @ Behold the Stars.
Sorry, but I must abandon my mission. Maybe another time when I have less weighing me. I'll be here to cheer the rest of you on!
