I actually quite liked 304 - took me a while to actually dive into it, but it gets really good.

Page 108 includes endnote 45: "See Note 304 sub." An earlier reference to Note 304 was buried in a footnote to endnote 39--which was on page 89.

Point is, in just 19 pages, DFW has pointed the reader to Endnote 304. And he's done it twice.

It's pretty clear that he wants us to read it.

I read it when I was directed to it from EN #39, but didn't re-read it when EN 45 referred to it.

I'll confess that I JUST buckled down and read 304, and I didn't do so until page 428 or so (where I currently am - no spoilers, I promise) where it was cited AGAIN... and you know what? It wasn't excruciating at all. 24 was more tedious for me to get through, and there's a 20 pager in there that I finished not too long ago that certainly took longer.

On my first read of IJ, I skimmed and skipped many of the end notes, including 304 in the earlier refs. That is, I read 304 from where it was directly noted. I regret that I didn't pick it up on the 'sub' references, since it sheds so much light on the nature of the Quebec separatists and the AFRs in particular.

Oops. I had to delete what I wrote. No spoilers.
