I have no idea.  But when I was assigned "Billy Bud," it was such a bore it felt like it would never end!

Four Past Midnight by Stephen King.

Gormenghast by Mervyn Peake.

An odd book with no real plot, no ending (with any meaning).

Pointless characters are introduced and then forgotten.

Mini-plots that go nowhere, and you can't work out why.

It's strangely enjoyable though (if you have a month or two to spare).

The Bible . .

The first time as a believer.

The second time I read it was as an atheist . . . It seemed longer that time.

Well, no wonder you missed so much if you didn't use Aramaic.

I am sure you can recite it for me as one whom cases their life upon it . . . Go ahead and give me the highlights . . be careful of any "Spoilers" though.
