Thomas Mann: Strike Two...the Magic Mountain

Most folks who read – for real, not just in passing, every once in a great while – probably don’t start a book and not finish it. If that does occur, some catastrophe could only explain the inability to complete a nominally easy task. So, my not finishing The Magic Mountain, since it was interrupted by some emergency, can only be explained by my lack of focus, or the boring nature of the book. That latter seems right, though.
