Admittedly I've never read it, but that's because when I started looking into evolution I realized the best evidence for it is in genetics, and DNA wasn't discovered until Darwin was long gone. I probably will read it at some future point, just to get inside his head, I can't imagine how hard it was for him facing opposition at every turn. Even now his theory is opposed by some but I imagine it was a hundred times worse in his lifetime.

Some may find it boring -- and certain chapters, especially towards the middle of the book, certainly are -- but the intellectual pleasure of watching one of history's greatest minds at work is, to me at least, enthralling.
The Voyage of the Beagle is more fun to read, though.
