Finally! Finished! All 669 wonderful pages of it!
I begun reading this around Juy 24th, see this post. It's been a long read partly because it's very thick (duh), but mostly because it's so beautifully written I keep re-reading sentences and passages.
The words are so beautifully composed, some strains of it made me want to weep with joy. (Think I'm exaggerating? Read it and let me know ;)
This is one of the few books I felt sad to finish reading. I wish there were more of it. Boo hoo.
Marisha Pessl’s Special Topics in Calamity Physics - highly recommended.
