Fielding must take precedence over Wallace, so I must finish this. I owe Fielding much, quite apart from all the other benefits, insofar as his convoluted manner of expression has aided in boosting my reading comprehension level to a point that Wallace seems a cakewalk by comparison.

Re-read the third episode of the conversation between father and son to catch more of the references. If the updates become too frequent, pardon me. The pages are so densely packed that moving forward occurs in very short spurts encompassing only a few pages at a time. I'm giving myself at least a month for this one.

First two episodes. Smooth sailing so far. Several LOL moments.

No pressure. Open-ended here. Yes, I am actually going to ease into this with the audiobook and some guide notes I have at hand. So far the vocabulary does not confound me, as I have an extensive one.

Page 465: The milestone. I've lived an entire lifetime -- 32 years -- since I last reached this point in the book upon abandoning it the first time. Now I can see the summit. I'm going to rest on this ledge briefly before setting out on the final leg.

Maybe it's Stockholm Syndrome, but I've been loving my captor, this book.

A perfect day for reading crap-tons of books on the patio with cold bottles of Moe's Taproom IPA ale at hand.

Hotchner can write like a fucking beast. He was a longtime buddy of Hemingway, btw.

I've got your number now, Tom Jones and Mr. Fielding; you are as good as slain. I have made it halfway through this epic. This edition is more densely word-packed so has a shorter page count overall, but this is a thousand-plus page novel. I love the book. It's tough, but I think it's worth the effort.

Spitz observes a similar link between Cat in the Hat and Risky Business that I had remarked about and recently posted in my review of Cat in the Hat. Interesting.

It's an exciting summer. We have the political conventions, the Olympics, terrorist angst ...

Full of shoddy, provocative connections, and thus fun.
