Day 1

Posted on May 1, 2007 by Chris Lumens in .

I got to the top of page 30 today, where there’s a big row of boxes (which will henceforth be called Pynchon Narrative Discontinuity Boxes). It seemed like a pretty good place to stop. My mind was starting to wander those last couple pages and for some reason I would like to get something out of this book. The sentence structure (or total lack of it) is going to take some getting used to but it’s not impossible. So far, I do like a lot of the humor and absurdity in the story. The giant adenoid diversion is a particular favorite. No real sign of a story yet, and only brief mentions of the person I’m assuming is the main character judging by the summaries I have read elsewere.

Tomorrow, I promise to write about something else.
