Does this book pick up from page 180 onwards? Because that is where I am right now and I have to be honest, I am finding it a real drag to carry on reading this book. The plot (which is very slow moving by itself) is constantly interrupted with endless whale and marine related terminology, detailed descriptions which sometimes last close to 20 pages. This added to the idiomatic language means I am not enjoying this book. Please don't post any spoilers, thanks.
