What a weird waste of time.
I was so looking forward to this one, and it's a nothing burger.
It's insanely slow, which I don't mind, but I do mind waiting forever only to be rewarded with zero payoff.
After three or four chapters, folks started laughing nervously...wondering where this thing was going. Once they realized nowhere, the sighing kicked in.
And that's how we all left: Looking at each other, slapping our palms on our thighs and saying to one another, "Welp, I guess that's over."
