A greatly acclaimed book.
This is how the read goes...
Marathon reading continues.
You start to search for what the acclaim was/is worth (unconsciously though).
You doze halfway thru the book.
You tell urself the best is yet to come, its a greatly acclaimed book, after all.
You read with renewed vigour.
You keep searching
You check the language.
Recheck the language; get immersed in the story, the characters, the philosophy
(if there was one)
Its the end of the book.
You wake up.
Keep the book aside, nonchalantly.
Yes. U question--- what was that acclaim all about?!
