I was eager to read The Master after the New York Times listed it as one of the year's ten best books. After persevering for nearly two-thirds of the book, however, I was unable to endure any more. I found the story tedious, and the style pretentious. As a fan of slow-moving, thoughtfully-written, detail-laden prose, I was reluctant to "give up", but I truly feel this book is over-rated.
