Strong tea and good books

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.”

Star Maker (SF Masterworks) (Sf Masterworks 21)

Star Maker - Olaf Stapledon Disappointing. This book had been recommended to me by Goodreads and others in a Goodreads group but I just found it highly boring. I've read Jules Verne, and I've read old science fiction, but this is the first science fiction book I've read that felt really, really dated. The style, the lack of a plot development (in that nothing is kept a mystery and no anticipation is built into the story), and the complete absence of any affinity for the narrator just meant that I had little to no interest in continuing to read it or liking it.
