Quite so.  But it's still true that huge books are hard.

I can understand that. I can only imagine how stressful finishing up the Kate Daniel's series and the Huge book is. Though I am a bit sad, but I am also glad they want to do the best they can with it.

Huge books are always hard.

I second that to some extent. I do read post-apocalyptic stuff, but find the overly paranoid kind alternately ridiculous and depressing.

I occasionally read true crime, if something piques my interest. The story of the Vidocq Society related in 'The Murder Room' fascinated me, for example. But there is too much horror on any day's news for me to want to read fiction about more horror.
Most of my reading is too escape into the book, and I don't care to escape into such situations.

Not quite sure where I should put this.
Got an email from Apex about the following book - this is part of their blurb.

Quote
Today, author Jerry Gordon takes us deep inside the standoff, giving us an insider's look at David Koresh, his followers, and what really happened.

Breaking the World, Jerry's alternate history apocalyptic thriller, questions everything the media told us about what happened in Waco twenty-five years ago and asks the horrifying question: What if David Koresh's predictions about the end of the world were true?

Enter the world of Cyrus, Marshal, and Rachel - three atheist teens drug into David Koresh's circle by born again parents. Watch the standoff with the FBI unfold. Question everything. And when the smoke clears, ask yourself, was David right? Are the seals breaking? Is the world as we know it ending?

The bolding is mine.  Given it, and my general dislike of doomsday/horror/true crime, I'm not going to be reading it.

I wonder who chose "drug" there; author, editor, news email writer?  It doesn't really matter; even if the content was more to my taste, I'd probably come to a halt with that improper past tense.
