"Episodic and alternately amusing and dull. Lots of good parts, but tedious.

I bristle at the notion that this is great literature. Contextually important literature, sure, and honestly actually funny, but there have been stories told more elegantly.

In the last 100 pages, Sancho taking a shit has been a plot feature multiple times. Not a value judgement, just an observation."
