Capital, good lord is the third chapter a slog. Luckily I'm almost finished, and I've been told that it gets easier from there for the most part.
I just finished Breakfast of Champions not too long ago, and it's so good. It's about a small incident where one of the main characters goes nuts and starts assaulting people, and the writer having his views changed about humanity. The incident it's self is a very small part of the book that is built up almost as if it's not that important in the grand scheme of things, and most of it is about all of the things inter-connected things in society and history that lead to that moment in time happening, almost as if by inevitable accident, and through it explores inequality, poverty, and race. The same goes for the author's view of people which undergoes a synthesis between what he believed before, and what a character in the book believes that convinces him to look at humanity differently. It's very much worth a read.
