The Grass Crown  - Colleen McCullough

Finally past the halfway mark! I'm not counting the glossary at the end, so I'm considering this book to be only 815 pages. Let's see if I can finish the second half in less than a week...

 

My problem is that, just like the first one, parts of this book are awesome and riveting and some parts are just meh. Like, did we really have to have those sections from Mithridates's point of view? Plus it's a really long book.
