I have been studying it for about a month now...In the beginning I was thinking the same...But Now I am enjoying it...and should be done with it for the first reading in about a week or so ,if everything went according the plan.

Believe me every minute spent on it is worth it.
Try to do Patho Questions, along with it,from Offline UW...You will feel better with your progress,even if you get a few questions right in the whole block.

Good Luck

Yup, I was there too! But it ends, trust me. Try not to spend extreme amounts of time on one concept/page, just be consistent, and it will end!! G'luck

just one suggestion not an advice because we all have our strengths n weaknesses. dont spend too much time between first n second read of this book.I mean the gap should be as small as possible otherwise the second read becomes kind of frustrating because in your mind you have read it all but u still forget it
