this may be the longest time it's ever taken me to read a book. It was an audiobook. Usually I have those on hand to help me sleep, I listen at night, and fall asleep halfway through. Usually that works better with books I've read.This was a new story. So I fell asleep midstream quite a few times, since I started it in August of last year. And I'd put it down, and pick it back up, and snooze and have really interesting dreams. Mystical Egyptian god mythology helps with the odd dreams. I loved it as an audiobook, with alternating readers of the chapters. They did good voices.
