really liked it
Read from September 07 to December 14, 2011

I'm not entirely SURE how I feel about Infinite Jest. Perhaps I'm still processing it. I do know that I wanted it to never end. Reading the book was a bit like watching a reality TV show which chronicled someone's life in an odd way. I felt a void when I finished the book.

That being said, there's a legitimate question of whether this book 'needs' to be done the way it is - and what the whole point of writing a mammoth, overly detailed, footnoted tome really is.... because it's not exactly the plot.

But now I know a lot about tennis academies.
