I'm enjoying it greatly. However, Prester John has been a figure of fascination for me since I was twelve. I found Island of the Day Before really really REALLY dry. I'm actually getting into this one.
I found that Foucault's Pendulum, in hardcover, was un-flipping-readable. I picked up a massmarket paperback of it for free a couple of years ago (somebody else in my building left it in the lobby with a 'free' sign) and just plowed through it.
I've been reading Baudolino the last week. Mislaid it (left it in the office) and grabbed Sigil II to give me something to read on Wednesday. Read that for a while, and found that I had Dark Places in my bag, chewed through that on Thursday and Friday. Read more Baudolino Friday night, then went to a bookshop and found the Sei Shonagon used.
I'm finding it quite enjoyable. I am debating about picking up a French translation, as apparently the French translation that's most common is quite lyrical, and I'm curious about the rather big liberties with the text that are being taken by the translator in the edition I've got. I think it's going to be bedtime reading for some time- it's got a pleasantly scattered, imaginative feel to it.
