paris - Your posts look pretty packed with in-depth analysis. I intend to take a look once I'm done with the book so as to form some of my own interpretations first. Regarding Pemulis succeeding, I'd like to see that too, so I hope he doesn't end up like Hamlet's Polonius, assuming that parallel is accurate. With the striking similarity in names, I suspect it is.


Thanks, SeanO. Just so you know, I'm a first-time reader staying at the spoiler line every day, so my readings don't call out with any special interpretive authority, and they definitely don't reveal any of the plot-to-come, which I anticipate as eagerly as anyone! I think I've helped some others feel/think their way along with the novel, though it is perfectly reasonable that some of my ideas may well turn out in retrospect to be as interesting as a Master Cartridge viewed at 450-rpm on the TP.

This made me crack up.

I'd say that Orin's definitely not the brightest crayon in the box, and the "Swiss" hand model must in fact be Canadian, but I can't quite understand what she's doing with him, or why everyone seems to think he knows something about the Entertainment.

But in a contradictory way, I have a sneaking suspicion that Orin may actually turn out to be involved in the Infinite Jest plot, which seems to go against his apparent dim-wittedness. I just keep thinking back to him tracing that infinity symbol on a Subject's thigh.
