I don't want to talk about it. I just want to boast that I finished it. 830 pages. The longest book wot I ever read. It's actually incredibly good. It has no plot, as such, so there's never a sense of the plot sagging. It's just 800 pages of the most beautifully observed scenes, covering every angle (ish) of 20th century America. The dialogue is the best thing. I am going to steal so many DeLillan dialogue tricks. All the dialogue basically plays out as a poem - rhythm and repitition being the most important features.
Anyway. Anyone read it? Started it? Stared at it? Used it as a doorstop?
