I had been trying to finish this book for such a long time. I would quickly read one or two hundred pages, and then I would put it down for months and repeat.If you aren't in the mood for "A Novel About the History of Philosophy" (major emphasis on the history), then I would move this a bit further down on your reading list.
This book can be very boring. But it is more fun than your school philosophy textbook. I enjoyed the subplot and was even inspired to put the book down a few times to reevaluate my own existence. It isn't often that I stop and acknowledge the fact that we too, are stardust.
