I was reading Prospect getting extremely excited about this book, saying it was the the first great novel of the 21st century, so as I was in Borders today buying High School Musical 3, don't ask, i picked this up. Its hefty and the first 18 pages have been good, so i'm in no real position to comment on it. but really has anyone started it yet? finished it? is it the greatest novel of the 21st century? disagree, whats the best novel of the 21st century.
