I've decided to slow down or stop reading Historical Fiction for a while (at least not the 500+ page ones), as it takes too much effort to get the gist of the story, when it's wrapped up in verbose narratives.

Instead, I've begun to read The Lamplighter, and have found it an excellent read so far. It's considered Historical Fiction, but only because of the backdrop - due to the fact it's a scant 320 pages (recent books I've completed have been 600-700 pages), I think I'll have no problems finishing this one up this weekend.
