I've been discussing this book with the Captain for some time now. Although I am very familiar with its topic and concepts, I have not truly read the book. But the Captain says I should, so I've been meaning to sit down to it, for both myself and because I love to please him.
It's over a 1000 pages, though, and while I've always been a literature lover throughout my years (no, not just romance novels), I'm worried I'll find it overwhelmingly long and tedious in places. I at least think I'll wait till after my wedding and honeymoon. It might be a little too heavy to delve into while swooning and honeymooning. But actually, I could totally see the Captain and me discussing it while relaxing on the driving and exploring trip we're planning.
The Wall Street Journal says it's a book come to life in today's United States political climate.
