Slow convert times ePub->mobi

Just started using calibre and for the most part it works worderful! Most of my books take about a minute to convert but there are a select few that have been going for almost 2 hours. I was just wondering if there's any way to decrease these times? Is there something I'm doing wrong?

Some books are more complex than others. Some books are porely constructed. There is no way around this but long conversion times should be the exception not the rule.

The conversion does seem to take a lot longer in recent versions than in much older versions.
