City of Women

City of Women - The subject here really interested me. I was trying to force myself to get into this one, despite my intense dislike of Gillham's prose style and his use of the present tense. Then I looked at a bunch of reviews on Amazon stating that the first two-thirds of the book is hard going and the last third is exciting. I knew I was never going to last through that first two-thirds, so I let it go.
