    In this exuberantly praised book - a collection of seven pieces on subjects ranging from television to tennis, from the Illinois State Fair to the films of David Lynch, from postmodern literary theory to the supposed fun of traveling aboard a Caribbean luxury cruiseliner - David Foster Wallace brings to nonfiction the same curiosity, hilarity, and exhilarating verbal facility that has delighted readers of his fiction.

    Misha says: "Overdramatic narrator for my taste"

    Would you listen to A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again again? Why?

    Yes. I would like to experience a few of the essay's topics then listen to these essays again.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    The author's attention to details. He has a way of writing a mundane occurrence in a way that makes you feel like you too should be getting more out of how you view life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really appreciated a theme mentioned in at two of the essays of how millions of people are being sold the concept of individualism.
