Infinite Jest

What books, zines or other pulp are you reading? What aren't you reading? What should everyone else read?

Infinite Jest

So ... I just finished reading it.

Pretty weird.

I'm on my second read of this abomination. I still have my notes from last time so I can keep track of the five W's

I tried - but could not make it through.

I read a lot, usually a few books at a time - so I'm always putting one book down and picking up another. Every time I went back to Infinite Jest I couldn't remember what I was reading about. When I realized that I just didn't give a shit about anything in the book, and thought the writing style was poor, there didn't seem to be any reason to continue on.

I have never agreed with every single word, in exactly the same organisation, as this one. I agree lolagirl, totally and completely...
