Winter's Tale - Mark Helprin

Basically we all knew this was coming. This book has the honor of being one of the few books in my life that I have given up on. I usually don't give up easily but I work too hard and am too busy to waste my time trying to slog through this book. The book jumps around too much to really become interested in the story. The characters are at times too odd for me to care about. If you put this book down in the middle of a chapter you will be absolutely lost when you pick it back up. Quite frankly I was lost most of the time while reading this. This wasn't profound but it was a giant mess.
