Now that we've gotten further in the reading, how does Green's witnessing of Lenz's attack solidify or change your perception of Lenz's choice of extracurricular activities?

I have developed a very strong dislike of Randy Lenz, and I am wishing bad things on him. I was hoping he would go away, but I'm afraid he's becoming tied to some of the other characters, and he's not leaving anytime soon. These are the only sections I've had to sort of skim, because I can't go to sleep at night with these kinds of horrific thoughts in my head. It has occurred to me, though, that he is a very powerful character. He has an effect on the reader, and I'm curious to see what his relevance will be further along in the book.

Naptimewriting- I'm very interested in your comments re: Randy Lenz being part of DFW's answer to irony. I've been trying to figure out what role Randy Lenz plays, aside from a vivid illustration of how someone might deal with feelings of rage and powerlessness. The irony angle makes a lot of sense to me also.

Plus the fact that Lenz is still using while attending meetings and deluding himself that no one can tell. As well as his rationalization of how cocaine use is actually a part of his recovery.
