              I didn't like it until the end, then it all made sense. I liked Joseph Heller's other book Something Happened better, though. YMMV.

                    I find that interesting. I'm sure I have said the same to other people regarding books/films and actually I'm beginning to question it. If I get a brief "oh that is interesting" moment at the end of hours of rather dull and confusing reading has it been a worthwhile experience? Of course there is no definite answer for that question, but as I get older I feel like I want to be entertained a little more. I like the bigger picture, the interesting deeper ideas, but I like to enjoy the ride too. I wonder if anyone else feels the same?

                          There are 50 pages of explanations at the end of the book and also (literally) hundreds of side notes throughout the book. but I guess I could never really enjoy it like a real Irish can...

                            I didn't enjoy it .. although I can't say I really like many of the so called '20th century classics' that people always mention in these threads, generally I don't enjoy American authors either ... most of my favourites seem to be Scottish which isn't intentional, it's either coincidence or something I find in the writing that isn't conscious on my part.

                              I had to read it for an AP Lit class in high school and I quit after about 60 pages. We had to keep a journal while reading it, and my journal was just me talking about how much I hated it, with gems like "A character just said, 'Who gives a ****************.' I can really relate, because this isn't funny at all, or even interesting. My last entry was something like "I can't read any more of this, nothing is happening, and what is happening is pointless. This is all plot and no story, and I can't stand things that follow that formula." I got an F on the assignment (which was too bad, because I was hoping for honesty points or something), and was kind of relieved that I didn't get in trouble. I keep hearing how good the book is, and sometimes I think I should try it again, but that attempt to read it probably left too much of a bad taste in my mouth. It annoyed me like few others books have.





                              I felt like reading some Cormac McCarthy, so I just read Outer Dark and Child of God, and am currently re-reading Blood Meridian.

                              • I am reading Tales of Dunk and Egg, struggling to get into Neuromancer (about 95 pages in), and read a few pages here and there of The Hidden Reality and Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman when I want something different. After finishing ASOIAF it's hard to get into anything
