it was amazing
Read in July, 2008

This novel was ended before it was done. And it was ended when it was supposed to be done. I love that! Shandy said he would publish two volumes every year until he died, and he did almost that.

People asked me the other day why I was reading something I found so hard. My response was that it was filled with dirty jokes. Which it is, but besides that, it's a work of art.

I'm at a loss for words.

That's the greatest answer I've ever heard to that type of question. I am stealing that"
