History Okay, be Honest

Has anyone actually read this book…for real…cover to cover? It won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize in biography and the 2003 National Book Award, but I don’t believe anyone has actually ever read it.
I bought the hard cover when it came out and tried to read it. I stalled around page 100 (it’s 1100 pages.) Caro was laying out the history of the U.S. Senate and LBJ hadn’t been mentioned yet.
I picked it back up again last night and stalled yet again as, still no sign of LBJ, Caro was discussing the infirmities of aged Senators.
This book is impossible to read. No one has read it.
