Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace

a tough slog. i put this aside 1/5 way thru, but felt obliged to finish after hearing of the author's lamented suicide. love DFW's essays (everyone should read the one on McCain's 2000 campaign in the next month), but this is so disjointed and meande ...more

A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore

Clear rating
i don't know. funny but a bit stupid. an unwitting grim reaper unleashes the forces of darkness for an ultimate showdown in San Francisco. easy but uninspired writing.

Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein
Rate this book
Clear rating

Dead Babies by Martin Amis
Rate this book
Clear rating
Perhaps the worst Martin Amis book i have ever read, but still a very good work indeed. Set in the future (so like 1995, for a 1970s book), but certainly not futuristic. In a world where hedonism and free love are the norm, a rich set of young adults ...more
