Infinite Jest

Infinite Jest Characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB About what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are Eual parts philosophical uest and screwball. Anybody who completes THE Infinite Jest automatically receives a medal Really Just read every single fuh cking word from beginning til the end you get an award that s what THIS IS basically A badge of honor Bragging rights A Privilege The experience which is so much like ogling the Mona Lisa live at the Louvre for the first time you can already envision her in your mind you know what it is even before you get to stand before it The literary euivalent of chasing the magic dragon Just keeping at something this being a very complex and cranial novel like some zombie to get you absolutely nowhere This is like a insufferable Beckett in that at least Beckett s implaus o ramas have an ending But here get ready to get nowhere Nowhere not fast but slowwwly Moments of Eureka I ve found something concrete at last Finally a location upon which to hang it s all very brief ha and ethereal to grasp Like some interesting but fleeting aroma The main driving force for the reader is to traverse the plot like some intrepid trekker here that motivation is eradicated what we are left with is one fat big juicy The premise That we live in a systematic place where components are controlled by family substances life The back and forth between the school and the rehab embody a game of tennis emblematic system used to symbolize coming of age as well as the myriad needlepoint philosophies that go with it No patterns arise Yet the reader has always his wants That you don t matter in the enterprise is what ultimately spoils this experience for me The writer has very consciously tried to build a sturdy monolithic castle from individual grains of dry sand An impossible endeavor but it must be witnessed The things that stick out are the sordid details the head in the microwave the shot in the face the molestation of little boys of invalids a hanging fetusIf you say IJ is the future of the novel you definitely haven t read 1936 s Gone with the Wind Almost a full century old that tome really justifies its girth like Lonesome Dove The Stand do like Don uixote Les Miserables eons ago I understand the allure of this really I do but HOW MANY DIFFERENT WAYS CAN YOU SAY THE EXACT SAME THING Definitely not in 1088 pages But maybe eighty eightBottom line this novel really gave me a serious case of the howling fantods

Read Infinite Jest

Infinite Jest Characters ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Comedy Infinite Jest bends every rule of fiction without sacrificing for a moment its own entertainment value It is an exuberant uniuely American exploration of the passions that make us human and one of those rare books that renew the idea of what a novel can d. I ve been waiting panther like for the right combination of caffeine and personal gumption to strike to attack writing about this since it really is one of my favorite books ever ever and one of the most fascinating things I ve ever read I ve read this book twice and I could care less what people say about it because when I do care I tend to grit my teeth over the ridiculous comments reviews that tend to come up in discussing David Foster Wallace s work People like to levy the criticism that the book is sloppy or digressive Really You think An 1100 page book with 200 pages of small print footnotes might be a little digressive or indulgent or maddening It might stray a wee bit into uncharted dark woods territory JeezThere is in art what I like to call the crazy project Once you go to work on the Crazy Project CP for short you don t leave the Crazy Project You don t FINISH the crazy project You can when you are really involved in it I mean really involved scarcely even talk about it you may not even realize you re involved in it The CP involves being given a hammer the only real tool of the artist a mouthful of nails and being sent over yonder hill and told to do AS MUCH DAMAGE AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN with the hammer you have been given When working on the CP the creative force is one in the same as the destructive force and your hammer is a useful tool regardless of which way you are swinging itI think DFW is one of the most fascinating authors alive he s doing work with the English language in the tradition of Kathy Acker Bill Burroughs or James Joyce The marketplace demands novels and so people oblige but there is a difference between a novel and a BOOK and I would consider a book to be interesting if difficult and less composed and Infinite Jest is definitely a BOOK and shouldn t be treated as a novel in the same way say Life of Pi is a novel and I do think Life of Pi is terrific don t get me wrong But if you want immaculately written works of fiction by Wallace check out his short stories especially the ones in Girl w Curious Hair because these conform to what you would expect from traditional notions of reading fiction If you want a beautiful wildly ambitious insanely indulgent uncompromising mind bending skull violating MESS one that comprises an entire Victorian manor of the Crazy Project then Infinite Jest may well be worth your whileThe book is definitely a mess let s not mince words It is also obsessively compulsively mathematical in the way that DFW seems to enjoy there is an order to the chaos and it did take reading it a second time to pull out some of the exuisitely crafted crystalline plot strands he was working at Linearity coherence of disparate plot elements is not what the book is interested in be warned But before I make the case of this being some academic project with no soul let me say that reading this I was genuinely surprised and moved by how deep real the characters in it become The characters in here are terribly tragic in a real Shakespearian sense the book s title is after all a reference to Hamlet and their tapestry in this book s pages is as intimate and heartrending as it is vast this book is a language project but one that remains absolutely invested in the lives of the people involved in that projectThe book is about a lot of things American culture the nature of desire fathers and sons art addiction institutions drugs consciousness film the nature of narrative too much to go into More than anything I think the book is about addiction and how our desires are moderated and mediated by culture and how desire addiction are entwined and how Westerners approach these thingsInfinite Jest is wildly funny and like I mentioned above almost unexpectedly moving there is a kind of veneer between the reader and the characters they are guarded and stoic people for the most part and getting to know them can be as frustrating as trying to get to know someone in your own life who is guarded and careful with their emotions But over the course of hundreds of pages you learn the inner workings of IJ s huge cast and their emotional motivations and subtleties begin to resonate with you in ways that dig so deep I think they re almost frighteningThis book is dense enough to say the least that I think you can get out of it whatever you are willing to put into it Isn t this true of most good art But the depth here is incredible To say I m biased and a bit blinded to criticisms about this book is hardly the point I think its a marvel I think its a mess I think it taught me what the difference is between a book a novel and why I think BOOKS are what the front line artists working on the Crazy Project are really hammering outupdateaddendum I wrote this when DFW was still alive It pains me to even go back and read this review one of the most fascinating authors alive I can reliably drop the last word of that now DFW s suicide still stings like no other artist for me I do know I m not alone there a lot of people who admire his work feel it We were robbed it s selfish incredibly so but so is suicideObjectively I still think Girl With Curious Hair is probably the best place to start but I didn t start there I started here and it worked out okay Just know this is a glorious mess be patient with it the book wants to be your daddy but you have to be its daddy let it teach you as you guide it it it s a living thing this book all the precious now
