I finally finished Infinite Jest after way to long. I started reading the first time shortly after it came out and lost speed about a third into it. With Infinite Summer on Twitter last year I thought it would be a great time to start it again and actually keep up. Well, that didn’t exactly last and it ended up on at work where I would read about a chapter a week at lunch. Last week I was ill and the book was mostly done so I took it home and finished it off.
Now that it is done I am not sure how I feel. Good I finally completed it. Incomplete because the ending just kind of ended. Nothing really was resolved in the plot lines. The “entertainment” was never recovered. Obviously the lack of a real ending is some post modern comment on entertainment in America. Yeh yeh, I still want more. David Foster Wallace is a genius.
All sarcasm aside it was a great read.
