I have liked prior Thor books...this one is a very tough read. Just not compelling enough to keep reading or get engaged. I have tried to keep reading this book for over 10 days and only make a chapter or two each time I pick it up. Too boring and story is just not exciting enough to keep interest. A plodder it is. Not worth anymore effort. Finally had enough as half way through book I tossed it in the garbage. It belongs there as this is terrible read from him. Meandering and just like he needed to write a book and has no energy to grab the reader. I would say Times Up Brad! Take a long break.
