I really want to give up with Owen Meany too but I just hate to let books beat me.

It’s like an obsession and it’s disrupting my studies.

The guy can’t spend 600 pages meandering!

    Did you finish it? I really liked that book. If you really want to read an excellent book that goes nowhere and everywhere at the same time try Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami. Decent, AND you’ll look important reading it! I believe it may also be in that 1000 books to read before you die.
