partially read

Tobias Hill's The Hidden
I'm nearly 200 pages into this novel but can't stand to read another page. I think it's meant to be an intellectual kind of thriller (it badly wants to be, like "The Secret History goes on an archaeological dig") but it is completely and utterly boring. I mean, it makes me angry that this book is this boring and I actually wasted time reading waiting for the good stuff. If you can't get good stuff in the first 200 pages, you shouldn't be writing a book. Meh.
