It is done, done, done. I finally finished reading Moby Dick, by Herman Melville. All 536 pages of difficult language and mystifying symbolism. I'll never do it again. It was a great book, but it was a brain buster.
I am the author of 5 books: Android Down, Firewood for Cannibals, The Cubicles of Madness, Robot Stories, and most recently, Various Meats and Cheeses. I live and write in Michigan.
