GRAVITY'S RAINBOW doesn't read like any other book, literally. Post-modern to the max. Therefore, no reader should take lodging in its universe without really accepting the fact that this is not an easy read. There are hundreds of characters, myriads of subplots, lots of German and French that appears randomly without an asterisk to note its translation. This novel moves beyond encouraging the reader to sit and gaze through it - it begs of you to hear its every note of its multivalent song. To take the journey with its main character, Tyrone Slothrop, and to compassionately question the material presented in front of you.
Many people will likely give up before getting 20 pages in, which is very sad. The book has so much to offer to its reader. It talks of very unique topics, teaches several eerie facts, answers a handful of hard questions, and even asks harder questions, questions that outstrip life itself!
My first Pynchon book was THE CRYING OF LOT 49, and I absolutely loved it. But, GRAVITY'S RAINBOW, has become a close friend to me. Its more than a book. SO worth the $20-something you pay for it!
