Anyone read "Stonehenge"by Bernard Cornwell?  I've read some of his other books and liked most of them, but I am really struggling through this one.  Is it worth the effort, or should I give up and post it and move on to something else?

I read it and thought it was just okay. For me, it was definitely not one of his best books. I did finish it, but if it hadn't been about Stonehenge, a place I'm very interested in, I probably wouldn't have bothered with it.

Thanks for the input!  There are so many other ones on my list to read that I hate to waste time on one that looks just so so.

You know, Cheryl, I am getting more and more that way  - if I don't like it, there's no reason to keep slogging .

Boy, I guess.  Life is too short and there are too many great books out there to read and re-read to fight a mediocre one.

I found it awfully deep wading.  I quit about 120 pages in.  Too many great ones waiting to be read to waste time on this one.
