It’s not book where you can just sit and read it, it’s book which demands studying and I wasn’t always ready to invest my time, and I’m glad, that I’m done with it. Open Preview See a Problem? The point is I don’t know how much he was into those crazy Frenchies, but I would say he had to have read them, studied them, or maybe, like myself, was a part of a really pretentious book club in which they spend almost five hours dissecting three chapters of A Thousand Plateaus at a time.

Maybe, as DFW continues to pull the various strands together, things will make more sense. It’s like straight out of Black Mirror or something.

Back to Eggers’ introduction. His life was a map that ends at the wrong destination. Because the parts regarding depression foser tragic moments or simple lazy days filled with everyday wisdom, I thought they were accomplished superbly. In case you were wondering, the other book I am reading at this time is A Thousand Plateaus: You can get the same thing from Wallace’s ‘Little Expressionless Animals,’ at one fortieth of the length, and with substantially more emotional impact.

There is much to hold on to in this massive novel, although it is perhaps weakened by some not bromma good, and perhaps even too creative parts, in which perfection is sacrificed for precarious attempts to be different which is unnecessary given his obvious talent and originality for language and narrative.

As a novel, however, I think it’s a hugely ambitious, entertaining, sporadically brilliant failure.

Sadly, the lack of discipline that mars his other work is evident here – in spades. I would read Infinite Jest before going to bed at night, and then wake up suddenly only to realize I had been dreaming about reading Infinite Jest.

It implies that a mcguffin search motivates the narrative, which in fact it does not. Despite the above it is a great book and worth going along for the ride. Because this post-neo-pseudo-ersatz-intellectual-crowd combination of words probably could be legitimately made into one word, I like that,it’s less clumsy.

Only to have things peter out again over the final pages. The story is complex and troubling. Rather than being overly abtruse or obtuse, the storyline s are actually pretty conventional and engaging.

If they applaud exactly when a song ends it means they are waiting for the song to be over in the case of our orchestra because listening to them was painful, but that is long story about some intense mistakes in the organization of the orchestra rehearsals, and of course the retarded lack of talent of most high school string players.


Through various characters, entertainment, drugs, financial success, athletic achievement, sexual gratification, intellectual achievement, grammatical activism, nationalism, and art are considered as meanings for life- all with disastrously fucked-up results. How is it that my reading experience differed so dramatically from the Gang?

Thanks for telling us about the problem. He completed it during a period of sobriety that was insisted upon by its lead actress, Joelle Van Dyne. From a literary standpoint, DFW is one of the most technically accomplished writers ever; he has the largest vocabulary, the most analytically complete understanding of arcane rules of grammar; but a good book is not driven by technical proficiency alone.

Yes, lots of this book is absolutely brilliant, but if pages seem superfluous, is it a great book? I haven’t read anything else by him, though I might. This is like a more insufferable Beckett in that at least Beckett’s implaus-o-ramas have an ending. You can get a pretty good idea, I think, of what happens”. There’s not a clear beginning and end to the book, it’s more like fragments of scenes all scrambled up and you have put them back together in your mind as you go along.

There’s a definite bravery involved in trying to use irony to move past irony towards sentiment.

Whereas I could not reconcile myself to sentences that began ‘And but the’.
