Wish me luck. I'm taking up the challenge. I'm going to attempt 'Against the Day'. As some of you will recall, only one reviewer for the Tournament of Books could even be bothered to finish the dang thing and even he didn't finish it until after he'd registered an opinion.
I know it is over 1,200 pages and apparently the story is very complicated, but I feel someone should give it a fair shake. I can't promise I'll finish it, but I currently have a copy of it in my hot little hands, so who knows? I'll probably give brief updates along the way, to let you know I'm still alive. I also have 4 other NYT books that I'm going to try to read at the same time, so you'll be hearing from me. I swear.
In the meantime, I'll post my review of 'Old Filth' tomorrow (just polishing it up right now). That is all.
