"David Foster Wallace proves his mastery of his craft in his final novel by taking one of the most mind numbing and boring jobs and writing about it in a way that makes it seem mind-blowingly interesting.
This story was at first intimidating to me. I knew there were multiple narrators and I was having a hard time keeping track of who was narrating when. It soon occurred to me that I should not focus on the more formal structure of the traditional novel I was so desperately seeking out and instead focus on the story itself.
As soon as my focus shifted to the story alone, a wonderful image of a place and a time started forming in my mind...
I would suggest that any lover of postmodern literature or contemporary American authors read this novel right away! It wasn't an easy read, but they say the best things in life don't come easy, right?" ~Lucas
