Anyone read this? I'm 100 pages in and starting to get a bit lost.

I've never understood the hype around DFW, but I like Pynchon's novels. Go figure.

It is written in an unusual style and you often wonder where TF it is going, but it is entertaining as well as frustrating. Stick with it.

Once you've finished it, it also works well as a doorstop :)

RE Pynchon, I never made it through Gravity's Rainbow, but I might revisit, being older and more patient now.

Foucault's (sp?) Pendulum is another novel that seems to go on and on with not much happening and the point unclear. I gave up about 3/4 of the way through. Should I persevere?

Man I hated that book...I made myself finish it. My guess is I didn't like it cause I'm not smart enough to get it.
