I'm finally trying to get through Infinite Jest:



Now, DFW was one of my favorite writers, I love his first novel and his essay/short story collections, this book has always intimidated me but I've decided to read it since I have the week off. Almost 200 pages in, it was bursts of brilliance but also has long stretches of insanely detailed mundane writing that is really tough to get through (and it's just like - get on with it already dude). Going to continue it but I definitely need to read a lighter book along with this.

Funny stuff.

Paul Thomas Anderson is adapting this into a film coming out this year, with Joaquin Phoenix playing the main character (a hippy, stoner Private Investigator) and Josh Brolin, Reese Witherspoon, Owen Wilson and Benicio Del Toro also starring. Here's what Phoenix looks like for the film:



Should be a great film.

PT Anderson is one of my favorite directors and Phoenix has become one of my favorite actors last few years. Did u read the book becuz you learned that PT was adapting?

That's why I read Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I read Fincher was doing a film adaptation and his movies always have a wild story to tell.

I've been wanting to read more of Pynchon for a while now, and I've known PTA was adapting this one into a movie, so I figured this would be a good Pynchon novel to read. It's great so far.

Solid light reading that had some bright spots and some legitimately funny moments. Pretty much made to be adapted into a movie (which comes out this year). Nothing special but still a decent book.
