I really enjoyed it. The observations were spot on. 'Idiocracy' type comedy just isn't popular during it's original run.

This is reassuring to me. OP is experiencing the exact same thing I went through. Every sentence is a long slobbering rambling soliloquy. I thought maybe novels were imitating theatre plays and so this is what people were expecting at the time, but I know other books from the time and much older that still read as more conversationally contemporary than Brothers K.
