I keep starting Sundiver and putting it down. But I had the same problem with Dune and The Mote in God's Eye --and ultimately I found both of them immensely rewarding. So I'm not prepared to give up on Brin yet.
Funny. Dune was one of those books I couldn't put down. Been years and years since I've read it (actually I think it's a full decade at this point) but it was pretty addictive. I blew through it and its first three sequels fairly quidkly, the only lulls being between 'I do not posess the next book... now I do.' I think I kept the pace up for Chapterhouse and Heretics, but don't really remember.

Sundiver not so much, though it was as indicated a fun read.
