Dustin Dustin said: "
All the more incentive to tackle Infinite Jest:


I'm more interested and determined now than ever before!

  (page 32 of 1483)
"For starters, author Dave Eggers "Foreword" moved me in ways that will forever alter me. The way he describes IJ is simple yet elegant, very insightful, inspiring, and encourages the intimidated reader that it isn't as daunting as it appears, and while it IS challenging, it's nothing you can't overcome.

My sole concern at the moment: What is going on with Hal???"

"Rating the play itself: 5 stars.

Also included in this edition of the book is back ground information on Shakespeare, insight into Hamlet, and its history both on stage and on screen. I'm really looking forward to reading these!:)"

Frank Herbert
“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”
Frank Herbert, Dune
