Very slow moving and boring. No comparison whatsoever to The Girl on the Train". A let down!

When four classmates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their center of gravity.

"I'm so sorry" claims the lead character of this book about 200 times, on page after page of endless self-pity, suffering, doom and gloom. I'm also sorry: sorry I didn't give up on this book far sooner. Sorry I ever picked it up, in fact. It just got worse and worse. It got to the point where I was so annoyed about the main character that every time some new misfortune befell him (and there were many, I can tell you, each more unbelievable than the last) I internally fumed "oh for f*ck's sake, this is just getting ridiculous". If Jude had been a real person one of his long-suffering friends would have long since slit his wrists for him. Unbelievable characters, unbelievable storyline. Book abandonned 3/4 way through.

When The Far Pavilions was first published 19 years ago, it moved the critic Edmund Fuller to write this: "Were Miss Kaye to produce no other book, The Far Pavilions might stand as a lasting accomplishment in a single work comparable to Margaret Mitchell's achievement in Gond With the Wind." From its beginning in the foothills of the towering Himalayas, M. M. Kaye's masterwork is a vast, rich, and vibrant tapestry of love and war that ranks with the greatest panoramic sagas of modern fiction.

Enjoyable to read in parts but totally boring in others. Ended up skipping through part 6 entirely, which didn't really seem to have anything to do with the previous storyline (war, war and more war). Overall: disappointed.
