If you're tired of how orderly most books are, this one is totally disorderly and very entertainingly so. DFW is one of the most brilliant authors you'll find, and also one of the most playful. It's a winning combination. ( )
I read this book in high school because I had a huge crush on John Krasinski and he made it into a movie; I feel like that's a good enough reason to read any book. It actually made me fall into love with DFW, and then Consider the Lobster made me fall out of it because I was a sheltered 16-year-old who probably wasn't ready to read it.
Dobre, ale męczące :)
Wallace's focus on minutia is somewhat impressive at first, but after a while it just becomes annoying. It is filled with men talking nonsense, full of academic jargon worthy of the son of professors and a professor himself. There is an obsession with abuse and rape--Wallace himself was apparently quite abusive in his personal relationships. Frankly, this is pure drivel--basically literary masturbation. But if these are the things that were going through the author's head every day, it is no surprise he took his own life. Giving this a half star, so no one thinks I forgot to rate it. It deserves zero stars.
What a terrible book. Can't see how it gets a rating of 3.76?. If it wasn't for the last story I would have given it less half a star.

In this thought-provoking and playful short story collection, David Foster Wallace nudges at the boundaries of fiction with inimitable wit and seductive intelligence. Wallace's stories present a world where the bizarre and the banal are interwoven and where hideous men appear in many guises. Among the stories are 'The Depressed Person,' a dazzling and blackly humorous portrayal of a woman's mental state; 'Adult World,' which reveals a woman's agonized consideration of her confusing sexual relationship with her husband; and 'Brief Interviews with Hideous Men,' a dark, hilarious series of imagined interviews with men on the subject of their relations with women. Wallace delights in leftfield observation, mining the absurd, the surprising, and the illuminating from every situation. This collection will enthrall DFW fans, and provides a perfect introduction for new readers.
