Review of Infinite Jest: A Reader's Guide by Stephen Burn

This slim 92 page book is interesting, but far from definitive. Good ideas. Too much unexplored. I'm still betting the drug DMZ was being synthesized by the mold in Hal's intestine that he ingested when he was a kid. I especially liked the timeline at the end. (2005 is the Year of the Perdue Wonderchicken.) Worth the price of admission for Infinite Jest fans.
