Karl Is it really as difficult as some say?

Mike Puma It's funny. The first time I read it I sailed through it. When I started it again more recently, it was much easier to set aside with a 'maybe not right now.'

I'm not sure if I mentioned it, but the mass market edition has a blurb that refers to its 'kaleidoscopic prose' which I'm unable to speak to; there comes a point, though, in which the story caves in on itself becoming something else, something different, which I remember as incredible.
