I've read TCoL49, V., about two hundred pages of M&D, and am currently at page 30 of GR (the part with the spiritist session). So far, they rank: V., what I read of M&D (lost my copy and at Uni's library there's only an awful Spanish translation), TCoL49, then GR. I repeat, page 30/760, and this promises to be at least on V.-level (one of my all time favorite novels), but I'll have to wait and see.
>>6395922 Lost my copy, when I went looking for one in the library, I only found GR, so I grabbed it while I save up to order M&D from Amazon. which is gonna be a whilefucking oil prices making dollars expensive as shit when compared to Mexican pesos I'm not that fucked up man, chill.
>>6395927 >what I read of Did you even read the post? I'm only saying that I enjoyed more what I read from M&D than TCoL49 or what I have read so far of GR.
I think M&D is probably his best by any attempt at objective measure, but Gravity's Rainbow was the most fun for me, in part because it was my first experience getting totally lost in that kind of insane world. (Literary fiction writers never have that kind of imagination; genre fiction writers never have that kind of prose.)
Stealing from Barnes and Noble is the responsibility of people who enjoy literature. Seriously, fuck that florescent lighted half-toystore. Soon it's going to go under and then people will buy books from nice secondhand stores and Amazon
No, your responsibility is to buy superfluous copies of books you deem quality from other, preferably indie, bookstores.
Stealing from Barnes & Noble simply puts you at risk. They already account for thefts by setting aside a certain amount of profit for theft losses, and stealing books only encourages them to make up for it by selling stupid shit like 50 Shades of Grey board games and Simpsons bookmarks.
>>6398300 Like Inherent Vice pretty much. FBI conspiracy, druggies and protestors, ex-old ladies, TV. I haven't quite finished it yet but so far I would say they're directly comparable and about equal in quality.
There are long expositional memories, though. Like multiple chapters in length. I've been learning about Prairie's mom for like 160 pages.
