    • It’s been quite a while since I’ve read it, but I remember it being really long (some of the paragraphs go on and on and ON), but never boring. I was mainly a Stephen King and classical literature junkie growing up, so I was shocked at how differently Infinite Jest read. I’d probably appreciate its humor and social commentary more now that I’m older. I can’t even begin to imagine the effort needed to get all those footnotes finished and made into a cohesive narrative. It’s such a shame what happened to David Foster Wallace; his distinctive voice would’ve made an even bigger impact on the literary world had he survived. The guy could make anything – even the IRS! – sound interesting. I’m actually tempted to reread it to see how many of his predictions about the last decade were correct. It’s definitely worth reading if you’ve got the time…and at least two bookmarks. You’ll need them.

      • Thank you for taking the time to reply. I haven’t read anything else by him, but i remember once i came across a gratuation speech he gave and i adored it. I’ll find the time to read it then. Thanks again. 🙂

      • Sure! If you want something a little less heavy (in terms of narrative and physical weight) you might want to check out The Pale King. It’s an unfinished manuscript that was published posthumously, so it doesn’t have an ending. Definitely worth the read, though.
