[Comments] (1) : While I'm talking about books I should mention that I also read The Crying of Lot 49, which is about as good as everyone says it is, but in retrospect they weren't saying it was as good as you thought they were saying it was. Still great. I had no idea that Yoyodyne in Buckaroo Banzai was a reference to Pynchon.

COL49 (as you would say) is good, but kind of entry-level pynchon. it's the book you read to determine if pynchon is at all palatable to you. i would (and for that matter, did) proceed to V.
