It is a rare occasion that I find a book utterly, completely unreadable. Peter Esterhazy's Celestial Harmonies is one such book. It is over 800 pages of stream of consciousness about a man's family and history in and of Hungary. It was totally confusing and I had no idea what was going on at any point in it. I finally resorted to skimming because I just wasn't getting anything out of it, then to flipping pages and reading every second or third page. Just terrible. Even still, it took me over 2 weeks to read.
So whatever I was supposed to have gotten out of this one, I didn't!
