I'm currently a little more than halfway through it; I just got it out of
the library again, as it's a two-week book and there was no way I was
going to get through the whole thing in that time period, especially as
it's too damn big to carry to work and read on the way there and back. I
will say that I'm liking it a fair amount, particularly the existence and
the content of the footnotes, but it goes rather slowly, not just because
of the sheer size of the thing.

On account of being a democracy and run by the people,
we are the only nation in the world that has to keep a
government four years, no matter what it does.
