Darkness at Noon, by Arthur Koestler, is on slot number eight of my 100 Greatest Novels (in the English language) list that I am working my way through.
I got to about 10% with fairly good intentions. Then things started to get less and less interesting. Approaching 20%, I found myself skimming through entire pages that I didn’t care about. And at 25% I completely gave up.
Somehow this book didn’t grab me whatsoever.
