Post 580 : The long and short of a story….

Have been trying to read Tales from Firozsha Baag by Rohington Mistry. Its not a difficult read (which if it was, I would have been fine with), its a damn boring read.
I am 100 down out of 245 pages and am giving it up. 

From its first page

“Not that the story need be long,
                        But it will take a long time to make it short.”

- Henry David Thoreau

Those 2 lines in themselves made the rest of the (drab) book worth it :-)
