Glad someone got it haha. In all seriousness though @OP, great book. Takes a long while to get into, and without the external feeling of "I will finish this," you probably won't finish it lol. Takes about 300 pages to understand at all what the plot (let alone deeper meaning) is about. The footnotes are an extremely novel convention, and are used to great effect, but are purposefully jarring and make reading it a slog at times.

Has some of the best commentary on society of any book out there, never relying on cheap political commentary, and genuinely makes you think. It's a cliche to say to books are ahead of their time, but Infinite Jest is in another realm of being ahead of its time. Both in plot events predicting the future as well as understanding on a deep level the direction the world was taking even back then.

Never mention it to anybody you know however, they'll either not understand at all what you're referring to, or make fun of you for reading Infinite Jest (esp. if you're a white guy lmao)

Never discuss with idiots, first they drag you at their level, then they beat you with experience.
