I am nearly finished with this book, finally. I have finally figured out where I lose interest in these books: it's the fight scenes. I realize they are necessary, but they're not my favorite. So when I know one is coming up, I drag my feet. Once I get through it, I'm all good. Now that I'm on the other side of the Spoiler Breaking the Breakers scene it's been smooth sailing. I've been like this through every volume of the tower. But it's still been an amazing journey. I wish someone could make me some spoilers when I hit that point - like just tell me what the ultimate outcome was so I don't have to read it. Meaning no disrespect to SK - I've loved him unconditionally for nearly 30 years, but even when I'm watching a Western or a war movie - I'll ff through all the fighting. BTW - I've had too much coffee to trust my work skillsrightnowsoi'mstallingatwork and talking nonstop righthere.
