Is it getting any better? Moreover, words I never new existed pop up with sufficient frequency that looking them up in a separate volume would be both disruptive to the books narrative flow and significantly increase the amount of time needed to read this book. His sprawling novel, with multitudes of characters, narrators, tangential anecdotes, and endnotes, is an exploration of this very distinct and profound feeling.
In fact, often times reading this book was like trying to follow a conversation wherein all waallace participants have attention deficit disorder. People who knew each other. I’m afraid I don’t see that. It’s absurd infonita amusing, but terribly tragic. Siate uno Studioso del Gioco.
I think this is a classic case of a book’s parts being greater than its whole, because, as a whole, Brima don’t think it wholly succeeds.
Want to Read saving…. I can’t even right now.
It’s hard to talk about what Infinite Jest is about, and likewise, it’s hard for me to really review it and tell if it’s great or not.
But it didn’t change my life.
Fozter by page, line by line, it is probably the strangest, most distinctive, and most involved work of fiction by an American in the last twenty years. The book is drum-tight and relentlessly smart, and though daviid does not wear its heart on its sleeve, it’s deeply felt and incredibly moving. When I run short of alternative reading, then I may return to this, because it is not actually bad, but if there is one thing I learned from the Goodreads challenge, there is a limit to the number of books I can read and enjoy in any one year and as fast as I may dispose of my existing collection, there are always new books arriving in my wish list.
Gately is the most poignant redemptive character in the book, even though he’s a killer if an accidental one. It is impossible to elevator-pitch the plot, but in very broad strokes this book deals with addiction in various shapes and is a aallace attempt at showing what language and novels are capable of davld capable hands.
I was an avid substance abuser back then. Jack Waters I named my car after the Peemster. That ending my god. I began to not anticipate an ending, but rather to dread it.
And not only to entertainment, i. Jack Waters I named my car after infijita Peemster. Unfortunately, the vast majority of the novel seems more of a platform for Wallace to expound upon various philosophies and personal ideas. But just as the master film-maker does not seem to take his own oeuvre seriously, so Wallace taunts us with the thought that this nearlypage magnum opus might be merely a hair-of-the-shaggy-dog-that-bit-you story.
I hate that there were so many endnotes, and sometimes those footnotes went on for a really long time and may as well have been whole chapters in and of themselves. I hated the lack of linguistic nuance with which most of the characters speak, particularly given that the predominant speech pattern here is rife with superfluous clauses and multiple possessives, a pattern not normally attributable to prepubescent teens, especially. Seriously, I wish I was even half as stylish as Catherine Deneuve.
Infinite Jest has many good qualities, but not enough to detain me longer. It’s supposed to be a comedy and yet, rather tellingly, the title is a quote from one of the world’s best known tragic dramas.

View all 5 comments. So once in a while you’ll run into a pretty funny definition anywhere, not just this book written by DFW, on iPads and iPhones.
The novel is very personal as the question at the center of the novel is not so much why we seek happiness, but why David is writing the novel at all. Or did Wallace think an overdone drag joke worked for page after page? It seems this is the sort of book that people either love or hate – there’s very little middle-ground on this one.
Obviously, DFW couldn’t decide, so he just did all of those things.

When is a dystopia not a dystopia? Being over pages it didn’t drag once.
