Wow, I finally finished this book, I almost can't believe it. I have been reading this for at least the last two months and there were many times in there I thought I was never going to finish.

Now, this is a classic and rightfully so, but the beginning is very slow. The book is a little too focused on just how witty it is, the portrayal of women is derogatory, and the storyline basically goes nowhere.

I did like the last third of the book where everything comes together for the climax which is really good and worth waiting for. So, if you are feeling bogged down, hang on, there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
