Tedious, a boring, repetitive, tiresome, humdrum, mundane, wearisome, book
Read as part of a book club looking at "The top 100 books to read". It could quite easily be "The top 99 books to read" as this is a tedious meandering waste of effort. Hellers writing style is verbose and repetitive as he tries to dazzle you with his vocabulary at the expensive of the narrative or the 'plot'. Of the group reading the book over 75% gave up somewhere between chapter 5 and the middle. Don't waste your time.

It's a very good book and I can understand why people have declared it one of the best books of the last century.
