Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon
Inherent Vice

Donald Hackett, January 14, 2010

So what if Pynchon is imitating himself. So what if the story sags about two-thirds of the way through. So what if I keep seeing the protagonist as Freewheeling Frank from The Furry Freak Brothers. So what if it's not Wolf Hall, Lark and Termite, Tinkers, or 2666. So what if I'm a victim of hippy nostalgia--wanting to remember being that high, that much sex, or adventures that interesting.

This book made me laugh at the madness of the world we live in--the same madness that made me want to cry in 2666, but seen from the other side of the mirror. Paranoia is heightened awarenss.
