So I started Infinite Jest
a couple weeks back, setting it as my big goal for 2016. I mean, it has so many people raving about it, and the concept of eschaton seemed intriguing as a fan of both tennis and politics. But like, this is one of the worst-written books I've ever read. Unnecessarily complex words, vastly over-long paragraphs, no perceivable plot. I'm 40 pages in and I just don't think I can do it. It feels like one of those things where people go "I don't understand it, it's brilliant."
Anyone want to sell me on continuing it?
Anyway, while pondering that, I started this today:
This series isn't good enough for reading, but is passable for listening.
