The unpublished or the unread

The two largest categories into which most authors fall are, one, unpublished or two, unread. I fall into the second category but I might have fallen into the first category if, having given up trying to find an agent or publisher, I self-published. I have since wondered if I hadn’t given up so early, that I might have found a publisher. One reason that suggests that I should have held out longer was a quote in a letter of refusal from a major publisher: “We both felt your style was very Joycian.” Which brings me to my question and the possible resolution of my of my question, did I give up too early and maybe could have found a publisher. Here is where you come in, if I may be so bold as to ask for your help. Could you read my novel John, Waldo and Henrietta and share your comments with me? I realize that this might be a strange request, but it would help me as I have written another novel and wonder which route I should go, self-publishing or the long road of trying to find an agent or publisher. Thanks to any of you who could help me with this dilemma. A link to my novel can be found in my blog “A Respite in Difficult Times” on page three.
