Couldn't stand reading this, though I gave it my best shot and persevered through the first half or so. I know it's supposed to be brilliant, but it's just too filled with hatred & despair and the wit isn't satire so much as bitter cartooning. I couldn't find a tiny glimpse of light anywhere in this thing.
