For the record, I finished Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. And I bow my head in a moment of silence for all those who have suffered this book, as I have.
The last bit was okay, though. It really hustled toward the end.
Also, more incidentally, I think I'd be enjoying Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere very much except for the fact that I'm reading it for book club. I think it will be tough to talk about, particularly in the context of this book club. But it's a good fantasy book, I think.
