Re: So What Are you Reading?: Generations

I finally managed to get through Paths of Disharmony. I was disappointed in how little Shar had to do with the story. Overall I found the Typhon Pact books underwhelming - not bad, but not compelling either.

Now reading Indistinguishable from Magic. I'm intrigued by the story, but I'm finding the shorter-than-usual scenes kind of distracting. Usually when a book has such rapid POV changes, it's building suspense and anticipation toward a climax of some sort. And that might be what's going on here, but I'm about 1/4 of the way through the book, and so far it feels like I'm constantly climbing the first hill of a roller coaster without ever reaching the top.
