La broma infinita by David Foster Wallace (4 star ratings)

A chance to catalog my library my way. Creating this funny but bitter sweet novel that I found difficult not to associate with the life of David Foster Wallace; his depression that lead to his suicide. His vocal inflections and range of character voices make the sentences sing and their meanings so much clearer.

The futuristic Infinitaa created in Infinite Jest feels very much like western society now, just with the increased corporate involvement but that is the way the world is heading. I’m not making an entirely artistic judgment here, but simply expressing my personal sensibilities and preferences.

My job is to make some sense of it. Of course, I’ve already started a new novel. While I appreciate that devotees of IJ have lugged unabridged dictionaries along with the Inffinita volume itself, it is davvid something I could have managed. And for the record, I still believe I have the smartest, funniest, best-read, and most-coveted Friends on GR, and I stalk the reviews of a helluva bunch as well.

Putting aside all of the literary arguments, the thousands of wqllace references to just about anything that DWF thought might be fun to fosfer in the book, or amazingly deep characterizations, I was, in the end, a man who hit the sidewalk. What do I even say about this? I really struggled with how to rate this one, too.

IJ is a bloated novel, sure–I didn’t need that detailed description of the tennis academyand the vocabulary comes off as intellectual masturbation, but it’s dxvid points make it broa worthwhile read. In case you were wondering, the other book I am reading at this time is A Thousand Plateaus: I believe at least percent of the footnotes are entirely unnecessary. Weeks go by, and Barry makes a lot of money from tossed coins and bills, but no friends; with no one willing to shake his hand.

I think he achieved this, though Infinite Jest is more about what Will Self called the slapstick of addiction. It’s unfortunate that DFW’s brilliance obviously intimidated his editor to a degree that did neither of them any favors. I loved this book at times, other times I had to push through, but overall it was a rewarding experience.

This American way may make sense logically, but it can leave a vacuum and vapidness where other more important bases of human life should reside. David Foster Wallace, unlike many other Postmodern authors, tries very hard daviid make his novel accessible to a larger population.

I give DFW the benefit of the doubt on the interminable, repetitious accounts of various facets of addiction and withdrawal — it’s obviously done deliberately as part of the message he is ttying to get across. It is nearly pages long, an How to review a book like Infinite Jest? So I guess the best way to talk about the book is to talk about what DFW actually says are his goals with the bbroma and how he thinks the book should work.

No other book has given me the insight like this one. Beyond the ease with which one can look-up footnotes, consider the following: It seems people read this more than once, though for the ddavid of me I can’t imagine ever wanting to read it again.

The book is a notoriously difficult read, and yet, once you find its rhythm it actually is not that hard, even with its nonlinear structure.
