Almost the best philosophical novel

When I first read this book I thought it would be one of those best novels that conveys deep and meaningful thoughts. But as I kept reading it the story keeps switching back and forth to different characters and I finally was about to put the book down. The erotic events of the book some-what kept me going, but for a while the book can be kind of boring. It can drag the reader very slowly to the end and the reader may not know how many of those events relate to the title or the theme. The book is deep, and it requires some deep thinking to understand and connect the events to the title. I personally think that I didn't spend enough time connecting the events into one huge philosophical theme, and I don't think many readers have that kind of time or would wanted to. Overall it's a decent book but since I'm a highschool student my reading level barely matches with the book's. I would reccomend it to those who are high level readers or simply to book-smart folks. I would like to put a warning sign for dim-witted readers who like to read cliche books, almost like me, so 'beware the unknown'
