I find it the same. There are some quite interesting parts, but a lot of 
um, not quite filler, but long winded sections where nothing really 
engaging happens. I stuck with it for all 3 books because it came highly 
recommended and the interesting bits were sort of buried in the boring 
so just about when I would be ready to shelf it, something would pop up 
and I would decide to keep reading.

I did watch the 2000 TV mini series, and was also underwhelmed. It isn't 
something I would recommend to read or watch unless I know the person is 
really patient and a [for lack of a better word] completionist in that 
type of literature and might find it interesting historically as it were.
