‘A Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again’ by David Foster Wallace

‘I Didn’t Enjoy This’

Score: 1/5

I really didn’t enjoy this book. It felt like the author was using his vocabulary to bludgeon me into accepting his superior intelligence.

For example:

The episcopate of this pop-reference movement were the post-Nabokovian Black Humorists, the Metaficitonsists and assorted franc- and latinophiles only later comprised by “postmodern”.

It’s not that I don’t understand the words, it’s that by the time I get to the full-stop I don’t care.

Still, if that’s your kind of thing and you want to read a couple of hundred pages of it, enjoy.
