    Vineland eBook Æ Paperback vineland epub, Vineland eBook Vineland is downplayed by Pynchon fans and completely ignored by curious newbies who tend to pass over it in favour either of the big game status of one of his doorstop meganovels or of the appealing slenderness of The Crying of Lot 49 Shame All his gifts and his mysteries are on display here wrapped up in one of his most enjoyable inexplicable and lushly all enveloping plots Rereading it now I’m convinced than ever that it’s terribly underratedThe essential storyline if there is one concerns the quest of fourteen year old Prairie to find her long lost mother Frenesi a hippy chick revolutionary turned government informer who has left a string of lovesick boys and girls wherever she’s been But around this kernel Pynchon deposits layer upon layer of sub plots super plots side plots and inter plots until you are wading thigh deep through new characters new locations new sensations on every pageIt reads chaotically but the chaos is intricately plotted Pynchon is doing twenty thing

    Vineland eBook Æ Paperback vineland epub, Vineland eBookSo when you think of Pynchon you think of serious work right? And trudgery and difficulty and obfuscation and pedanticism and like this dizzying thing that just makes you feel unintellectual and slow for never being able to catch up right? Well if that is the case you have never read Vineland Because oh my god This book is so fucking goodI'm not going to try to summarize or anything because this book is too sprawling and reeling and anyway that would be an afront to its amazingness But look it's got all the same basic building blocks as any Pynchon book—a million characters exhaustively historied unfollowable plot twists crazy ranting paranoia incredibly phraseology bizarre songs sixties culture sex and viol

    Vineland eBook Æ Paperback vineland epub, Vineland eBookeverybody's a hero at least once maybe your chance hasn't come up yet Thomas Pynchon Vineland I first read Vineland about 25 years It was my sopho year in college I was idealistic and I met this guy in the college bookstore named Thomas Pynchon Since it was my FIRST or was The Crying of Lot 49 my first? Pynchon I think I missed way than I gained except for the desire for MORE Pynchon Looking back now Pynchon for me starts to divide into his BIG GREAT novels and his funny shorter novelsIn my brain Vineland fits with Inherent Vice Bleeding Edge V and The Crying of Lot 49 On the otherside of my Pynchon index card sits Gravity's Rainbow Mason Dixon and Against the Day Obviously there are no perfect systems here But that is how Vineland sits for me It was VERY good just not GENIUS Pynchon The slimmer li

    Vineland eBook Æ Paperback vineland epub, Vineland eBookEverybody always told me Vineland was Pynchon’s worst effort what? No way no how brothers and sisters this here is an endless DNA chain or like Russian doll of embedded story after story descending and re emerging through various strata of narratorial layers pop culture send ups genre parodies all funny as hell and twisted and ridiculous while also extremely smart and painted with mind tweaking flights down and up imaginative spiral staircases And there’s so much heart in this book this old cold hombre almost teared up at certain moments Worst Pynchon? C’mon this is his classic Saturday night drive in camp flick for the mentally agitated among u
