    Hello NB ~ Well, they're both right. There isn't really a lot of difference between them: A suggests that it was the reader's 'fault' that it was such a long read; B suggests that it was the book's 'fault'. But these are just 'suggestions'.

    I also agree with ewie but I'd say that I hear them with equal frequency, depending on the situation.
