Starting a new book

Just picked up Lisa Jacksons Lost souls.

Are you one of those people who find making through the first few pages really hard? Who is interested in reading the color of the walls, the description on the exquisite long drapes or the protagonist's lace on the dress.. dragging boring!! Sometimes after reading a book I feel damn! the book could have been easily trimmed to 100 pages instead of the 300 pages.

Anyway I have read other Lisa Jacksons books and do find it good. Lost Souls is also picking up good, one of those books that you cannot keep away from. Hoping it finish it soon.
