"Lattimore’s rendition is as gripping as it is beautiful. One cannot help but be drawn into the poetical descriptions and the Gods’ and heroes’ speeches." Feb 22, 2021 04:39AM

"Really enjoyable, fun to read, and suprisingly funny. The footnote about Hal's deceased filmmaker father reeks of DFW's interests in experimental film, maybe even early Lynch. Some of the jokes do come off as sophomoric, intellectual gags more than actual jokes, but it is still fun. I see why people compared him to Pynchon, even if they are very different and conflict with another." Jan 22, 2021 11:50PM
