Good, but 200 pages too long ...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Anathem (Hardcover)
Loses two stars for the 200 pages worth of philoso-babble that should have been edited out and sorely strained my endurance. Somewhere between pages 600 and 750 I actually said out loud "Please stop and just get on with the story."
What remains is worth 5 stars, so it is worth persisting.
If you're forewarned you might just make it to the end.
