I was reading three or four other books, but they have all fallen by the way side while I read the 900 page chunkster Sarum by Edward Rutherfurd. I could use another seven-hour flight to get this done — that’s how I finished Ireland Awakening by the same author (Book Review: Ireland Awakening by Edward Rutherfurd). Sarum is similar in that it is a multi-generation, multi-family novel of a place — in this case, the area around Stonehenge in southern England. It begins in 7500BC. I’m about half-way through and we’ve just watched the rat arrive with the flea that carries the Black Death to England in 1348. I have a feeling this chapter won’t be as uplifting as the previous one that was about the building of the cathedral in Salisbury.
