Actually I quit 50 pages in yet it took me a year and a half to go that far. Others have commented that the theory turned them off, but I wish there had been more: it was the concrete examples that felt random and uncontextualized to me. I started reading this in a graduate level film studies course and finished on my own time.
What keeps me from giving the book a 5-star rating is that there are a few sections about, say, the history of paper was it? However, the highlights are more theoretical and discuss the archive and study of history in a Fun, readable cultural theory. However, the highlights are more theoretical and discuss the archive and study of history in a fresh and engaging way. I found this brilliant at times, and frustrating at others. Not directly about archives in the way I expected.
