Thick but rewarding
It took me a while to get acquainted with the style of writing both in parlance and in chronology. For me it really clicked after the chapter on Slawkenbergius's nose chapter. I highly recommend reading along with an unabridged physical copy because of things like the black page.

I have read this year two contemporary classics, Tristram Shandy and Jacques le Fatalist, and I cannot underscore the importance of these two works in the world of literature and the art of the novel (to quote Kundera) it self. These two books take on the Quixote and move it to places not travelled before their time and very seldom after their publication.
I will not try to review the book as many more capable than I have walked this path. Suffice to say that I am delighted to have read this book and highly recommend its lecture or hearing. Whatever suits your taste.
