As they near the promised land, it isn't what they expected it to be, is that because they have searched for so long? So long, that nothing could live up to the expectations they have?
Yeah, in the past few years I've come to dislike mass market paperbacks. In the case of my copy of Baudolino, I ordered it sight unseen. The quality of the book does enhance or detract from the reading experience.
I finished Baudolino this morning. What a ride!
I'm back from our holiday travels which means I'm also back to Baudolino's adventures and just starting this section.

And then they cross the river of rock and enter into a land where all those bizarre things exist. So is Baudolino just spinning a wild tale, or does this book exist in the Medieval world as its contemporaries saw it? Some of the creatures are drawn from fiction written well after the medieval period -- the houyhnhnms are straight out of Gulliver's Travels, for example.
So now I'm reading a different book than the one I had thought I was reading.
