Ryan How's it so far? I've started it too, but then got lost in the middle of the lengthy passages. I'll pick it up again this weekend. I find it to be surprisingly a smooth read.

Madhuri Just started last night and I have not yet got past Introduction. But as you say, it is an easy read so far. I am expecting lengthy passages too, the kinds which dominated many parts of The book of disquiet (yet to finish that one)

Jigar Brahmbhatt Bela Tarr's rendition of the book makes a very bizarre film. I was not sure whether I liked it but it was otherworldly, strange, something I had never seen before! It'd be interesting to know how it turns out. I also tried to watch Bela Tarr's Satantango, which is also based on one of László's novels. But couldn't sit for 8 hours straight, so I left it unwatched :)

Madhuri 8 hours for a movie?!! you have to be kidding me.

Jigar Brahmbhatt I am serious :) Tarr has actually made a film that long, and its quite celebrated in Hungry and elsewhere. I think Sontag also liked it and wrote an essay on it.
