it was amazing
Read from May 22 to August 18, 2012

The book is excellent. My situation this summer conspired against me being able to give the book my undivided attention, and now that I'm finished, I wish I had been able to concentrate more on it. If this book is considered one of the greatest in the Western Canon, I am proud to say I have read it.

64.0% "The book is compelling, but it is dense. I usually read a page a minute, but it seems that this book's pages are at least two minutes minimum, making it seem like I'm reading a 2500 page monster. In any event, I like it and will finish it sooner than later (I hope)."
