I finally, finally finished reading Melmoth the Wanderer by Charles Robert Maturin. It's not that is was boring - it was just a lot of book that was hard to read very quickly. It was pretty hilarious the way Maturin kept building story, within story, within story by having a character tell a story, and then a character within that story tell a story, and so on until there were about 5 stories nested within one another within the first story. Pretty clever and a great gothic satire.
