one more book on the finished pile

I've finished "Applying Domain Driven Design and Patterns: with Examples in C# and .Net" by Jimmy Nilsson.

I found that this book was difficult to read - it just didn't keep me interested. It was dry and somewhat uninformative. When I compare it to any book in the Pragmatic series, it just doesn't cut it.

Books shouldn't be a chore to read. I'm really quite interested in Domain Driven Design, but I didn't really get much out of this book that couldn't have been written in about 50 pages in the pragmatic style...

Pity really - maybe I've turned into a jaded critic?

On another note, I'm a quarter through "User Stories Applied" by Mike Cohn. Seems quite good.
