Waste of time by octogenarian

Waste of time

I refuse to say that reading ever is waste of time, but now I must say so. Six hundred and fifty pages of a mystery that was so well written that I couldn't put it down, even though I didn't like the characters, not the spoken language, and not the nonexistent expertise of the author whenever he spoke of horses. I spent a whole night and a whole day just to get to the end. Luckily reading an e-book goes fast, so now I can turn off the reader, and get some sleep - I have dentist tomorrow. :-(

Correction: coffee never is waste of time ;-))
Oh no, sorry it was such a disappointing book. I've been there!

You're right, coffee is never a waste of time.

Hope all goes well at the dentist tomorrow.

Some times a book just grabs you and maybe its the journey that's more important than the destination? I agree, coffee is never a waste of time. Don't mess with ones source of caffeine.

what language are we talking. I've certainly had those experiences with books. I'm not sure what gets into one that one just keeps plowing along.

@francoise It was Robert Galbraith's Lethal White. Nothing wrong with the author's language, in fact it is/was very well written. I just didn't like the way the author had made the criminals speak. I guess mysteries are not my cup of tea. :-)
