I have given up
Somewhere in the middle of the second part of the novel I realised I wasn’t enjoying it, and not in a necessarily bad way. I greatly appreciate the books brilliance and it’s certainly an easy read, I just don’t know what I’m getting out of it. The mountain feels climbed to me, and I’m sitting at the top anxious to go back down.
The truth is, I have a found a new book to agonise over, Infinite Jest. It feels closer to me and a more intense experience, so expect an Odyssey on that not long after this has posted.
