Does this ever start to be less wordy, or at least with more direction? The imagery and dialogue are fantastic, but few and far between passages that contain references I don't think I'm understanding.

I loved V. and enjoyed Lot 49 but this book is making me feel pretty dumb so far.

Take your own advice and get back to Reddit

Yeah, it gets a lot easier in Parts 2 and 3. Part 4 loses any sense of coherency gained in 2 and 3 though, but it's an enjoyable journey for its own reasons.

Also, I'd leave out any complex analysis for your first run through the book. It's an experience on the first run through.

On subsequent readings you can go through it with a fine tooth comb.

In b4 "pleb just doesn't understand."

It's a joke you need a guide to read a book. Postmodernism killed literature. It's probably for the best.

Dante makes postmodernism look light on references. Saying "wahh it's too hard" isn't a criticism.
