Brian Woah, was thinking of reading this till I saw your rating. Any comments?

Patrick Brown So, other people will argue that this is a masterwork, and maybe it is. It's entirely possible that I'm too dumb to understand it. In the end, I think life is just too short to read books like this, that amount to 700 pages of incredibly dense and confusing prose that amount to, ultimately, a Marx Brothers movie. Again, the literary establishment, including many people I really respect and admire, probably think I'm a fool for this.
