What's the best review or analysis of gravity's rainbow? I read it and can appreciate it for it's unique tone and Pynchon's ability to write with personality, but I don't understand it on a critical level.

Also, explain why you liked it.

Overrated garbage, and so on. *sniff*

I liked it because I think Pynchon's pretty funny, and because it's so metaphorically rich that you can spend your whole day thinking about the various ways brenschluss applies to your life.

I guess also because it's structurally very interesting. The way the narrative is handed off between various characters and storylines manages to progress the plot in an innovative and challenging, but satisfying way.
