08.25.05 too me forever to read. The idea of it is great, how the book starts going crazy to reflect the story, but the main story reads like a non-fiction analysis of a fictitious movie and it's interjected wildly by another character who's supposedly editing and fixing it up for publication. This character goes on lengthy tangents and goes crazy himself so really none of the text is particularly riveting or easy to read. I guess overall it was a positive experience because he does do a lot of cool stuff with the actual medium of the book, but it's fattened up with all this stuff i didn't really care about, including 150 pages of appendices including 50 pages of letters from the editor's crazy mother. It'd make a good movie though.
