    I remember several years ago when the Modern Library named “Ulysses” the greatest novel of the 20th Century, several commentators wrote indignant responses which seemed to say indirectly “If it’s so great, how come I’VE never read it.” I tend to suspect a similar motive when I see headlines like this.

    Finished it? Heck, I’ve never even started it.

    Yep, never even dared to start it.
