Whew ... ever finish a book and have that feeling? At more than 500 pages, The Man Who Loved Children (which tells the story of the 1930s-era, delirious Pollitt family) is a tome, but, if you give it a chance (and, in my case, a chance was a slow 200-page start), an enjoyable read.

I'm glad to cross this one off of Time's 100 Best Novels. As much as I'm glad I did stick it out and finish, I have a feeling I won't be picking it up again anytime soon.
