XX. "The Far Pavilions" - M.M. Kaye


750-plus pages and I couldn't pass the first twenty without skipping back, thumbing ahead, and forgetting the last paragraphs.

Has anyone read this?

I read this when I was a teenager and loved it tremendously. All these years later, I don't really remember it much but I did read and enjoy her other books too.

Funny about Nicola (see first comment). I read it when I was a teenager as well ... every word and I loved it. But I can't imagine reading it now - I don't think it would hold my attention.

P.S. great blog!

I read this one as a teenager as well (and still have my original hardback)and loved it. I decided to re-read it several years ago and still enjoyed it but it didn't have the impact on me that it did when I was 17 or so. Sigh.
