Opinions? Is it better than IJ?
>>
>>7653340
They're both memes. They only appeal to 20 year old white upper middle class male college students.
>>
>>7653344
Go back to tumblr faggot
>>
>>7653340
Yes.

Which is a low bar, but yea, GR > IJ.
>>
>>7653349
>20 year old white upper middle class male college student detected

You're so deep for reading a meme author
>>
>>7653354
No ones talking about being "deep" except you
>>
>>7653360
Because I actually read proper literature and know what is embarrassing sophomoric trash
>>
>>7653366
This is anonymous board, you don't need to try and impress anyone here :^)

>They're both memes
Everything is a meme. If by meme you mean /lit/ talks about it a lot, well yes, but its irrelevant

I haven't read either but I think infinite jest is better

trust me on this btw, i'm a college freshman

I should also specify that I am a white (Anglo Saxon) male

Don't even compare to IJ. Totally different books in every single way.

Yes though, it's in my top 3 books of all time with Illuminatus and Paradise Llost

GR is an experimental counterculture epic
Infinite Jest is a conservative self help book rendered by a very clever University professor

i enjoy both

This guy is some kinda Genius

Is a seventy-five usd first edition copy worth it?
>>
>>7653340
Yes.
>>7654829
Assuming it's real and in decent condition, you could probably resell it for a lot more than that.
>>
>>7653454
This is rather accurate.
>>
>>7653454
>Infinite Jest
>Conservative
Really? if that's true I may have to reevaluate my years of shit posting it.
>>
>>7654870
It's conservative in that it's anti-drug and there are a couple of characters who use the word nigger(s).
>>
>>7654870
DFW was a pretty big Conservative and the book is all family values and God and hard work.
>>

>the book is all family values and God and hard work.
what is greater than this

weed and sex and classical guitar

Mein neger. I'm excited to read GR over the summer, but do you think I need to read V. and Mason & Dixon first?
>>
>>7655049
Probably not. Definitely not. Though m and d is my favorite Pynchon.
>>
>>7654932
you. i like you.
>>
>>7653366
>proper literature
Are you that one guy who keeps masturbating to Jane Austen and Virginia Woolf?
>>
>>7655049
V. helps. Mason and Dixon was written like 20 years later, so no.
>>
>>7655049
No way man, that's bogus shitposting from people who want to keep GR elitist and unread

you don't have to prepare anything - i've gotten some non reader friends to tackle it, and it's not easy, but you can do it as long as you're enjoying yourself

pynchon's books beg subvocalization
stop this meme

I got high on shrooms a couple times during the month and a half it took me to finish GR and it helped a lot.

The Mason and Dixon part is, but reading V. first does legitimately help.
>>
>>7653344
So, the best society has to offer? I don't see the problem here.
>>
>>7654964
Oh, silly meta 4chan
>>
>>7655123
On my second read through of GR I read part of the last section on shrooms and it was extremely difficult to follow. I was loving every individual sentence and underlining all sorts of shit but at the end of every page had no idea what I read
>>
>>7655160
>>7655160
fucking this
I'll never get "le 20 year old white male xDD". It is the most perfect human there is
>>
>>7655160
Almost. White working-class to middle-class males make the best artists.
>>
>>7654879
>anti-drug
I don't think so, that would be over-simplistic, and in an obvious way.
