Like wading through champagne jelly,
This review is from: Infinite Jest (Paperback)
Cor! I would like to tell you that this book is all the things that these other reviewers say it is - amazing, brilliant, flabergasting etc. Well, it is. However, after pushing through David Foster Wallace's interminable digressions and massively complex clauses, sub clauses, sub sub clauses etc, the brilliance could be said to have been dulled somewhat. Nevertheless, It's still a top-notch piece of boundary-pushing fiction, a brain-pulsingly engaging read, and a mad piece of food for thought. It would've got five stars if I could have persuaded any of my friends to read it too. Those slackers!
Read it. It'll do your brain good.

what a lovely review!!!!! pithy, witty and gives a good sense of the book. thanks for that, i really enjoyed reading it. I'm just starting on IJ, so far so good, although i'm sure both he, and the dictionary by my side are making up random words!never has my small brain felt so small!
