On the right track to confuse everyone

This blogger lists some qualities in books he seeks out:
  1. Dozens, if not, hundreds of characters.
  2. Digressions all over the place that sometimes do and sometimes don't have a connection to the main plot.
  3. Not being able to understand large swaths of the text.
Hey, I'm on the right track with the book I'm working on. My character list already has at least 75 entries. And there are plenty of digressions. As far as the last criterion, I guess I'll never know whether readers feel that way, unless through some turn of fate the book becomes widely read and I get a lot of feedback. Gee, that would be nice.
