Season of the Witch by Natasha Mostert

Oh my. I struggled mightily to finish this one. It should rightfully have taken about two days. The language was simple, the print large, the pages few but... The problem with this book is that it continued to hold a single thread of interest for me so I couldn't just give it up entirely. Ultimately it was weird, shallow, flat. A waste of time, paper, ink, publishing rights. It is said that a work of fiction is published every 11 seconds in the United States, thereby making the chances of becoming a published author difficult and distant. A new author trying to establish a name in such a market is said to face immense challenges. With numbers like that how do books like this get through?
