I want someone to reply or comment on this post with their review of Gravity’s Rainbow by Thomas Pynchon. I started in on it a few days ago. It’s going to take a while, but I think it’s awesome so far–such dense prose, ambitious, and technical, complex. I like that. I also like Hemingway’s terse prose. I like both of their styles the most, I think. They are both influencing me heavily on how I write my third person works. I admire Pynchon’s complexity and love of punctuation, yet I love the times when you need to slow things down, be terse, and romanticize an experience the way Hemingway does. Now, back to Gravity’s Rainbow. As I said before, I want someone to comment or reply on this post and tell me what they thought of that novel, WITHOUT SPOILERS, because I’m still reading the book. Oh, and I read The Crying of Lot 49 , and I thought it was a cool book.
