It's ok. Too long for my liking. Unfortunately the foot notes are where the best material is.

Go for it! The Entertainment is very satisfying. It's little like reading Moby Dick. It takes effort.

It’s a brilliant book, pretty funny, and ultimately a great read, but I don’t think you’d be missing out. It’s a book that requires a dictionary on hand and is so dense. It takes time and effort. I would suggest reading his essays or short stories first, then you may just have to read Infinite Jest out of pure love for his writing. Then again, that’s just me.
