Don't worry, I'm not gonna burn out. If I need to take a break, I do that in time. But this evening actually went better than expected. I did it in sessions of 3 pages, then pausing and cleaning them, before tackling the next 3. This was quite a good way of doing it.
I finished chapter 10 *jumps up and down uncontrollably* (we need a smilie for that emotion)
(Recording time: 16:12 min.)
I'm reading the book in the order that chapters are uploaded, and the Max Lander ones were the first to be completed. It's actually dovetailing more conveniently than you'd think with the plot in this novel - I'm sure with some novels I'd end up very confused.
I especially liked it that in the narratives of the 4 persons, the plot always gets repeated somehow with a bit of a twist, each time getting explained a bit more. It's a great way of storytelling. It's my first Richard Marsh novel, but if they're all as good, I should like to read some more.
That's enough for this evening though. I might relax with a small poem later on, but now for a break.
