vesuvius has said he has not (yet)... have any of the other 3 of you actually read it?

While readers of the book tend (broadly) fall into two different groups "love it" and "this is horrible" (such as this quick ~90 second example, some audio NSFW). For some reason those who have not read it tend to be the most vocal about it... I suspect because those who have read it understand a little more why we in the "love it" think so... even if they disagree.

Hell, 3 weeks ago I gave a copy to my girl friend and she's absolutely loving it and burned through part 1 in near record time (it took me ~18 months to read it at first because I couldn't quite get into it, but once I did there was little stopping me).
