  1. LOL! Yes -- as a matter of fact I don't think I've "met" anyone yet who has actually finished it, though I thought most people enjoyed it -- it was just too long.

     

    Just the shear size of the thing has me thinking one read is plenty! LOL! Hum -- what makes it such a difficult read, do you think? Is it the translation? Frankly it's been so long since I ordered it -- and I was looking at two translations -- I'm not even sure which one is coming! I have the Britannica Great Books of the Western World set, which includes the John Ormsby translation, but the type is too small for these ol' eyes and I wanted a book I wouldn't be hesitant to write in, if it came to that.

     

    The chapters are short, at least, which would help with a sense of accomplishment!

     

    BUT if you've given it a try and found it tedious, maybe we could do another book? Is there something else you've been wanting to read? Or do you really want to give DQ another try. :-)
