    A gargantuan, mind-altering comedy about the Pursuit of Happiness in America set in an addicts' halfway house and a tennis academy, and featuring the most endearingly screwed-up family to come along in recent fiction, Infinite Jest explores essential questions about what entertainment is and why it has come to so dominate our lives; about how our desire for entertainment affects our need to connect with other people; and about what the pleasures we choose say about who we are.

    Charlie R. Williams says: "good if you already read the book."
    "Confusing and disjointed"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Nothing about this book appealed to me. I made it 6 hours into the book before giving up. The story doesn't seem to have a point and is written in a disjointed and impossible to follow manner.


    What could David Foster Wallace have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Added a plot.
