[Review] Genji Monogatari

The Tale of Genji - Murasaki Shikibu, Royall  Tyler

I think at some point in time I do want to read all of The Tale of Genji. But for now: life is too short. I recognise the historical significance of the work. However, the translation and style make for a tedious read (and I simply don't have the willpower to keep going for another 1000+ pages).

And Genji is a complete creep.
