Slothrop gets excited, and then, as Thomas Pynchon puts it in his sibilant opening sentence, 'a screaming comes across the sky', heralding an angel of death, a V-2 rocket. Soon Tyrone is on the run from legions of bizarre enemies through the phantasmagoric horrors of Germany. Gravity's Rainbow is never a single story, but a proliferation of characters - Pirate Prentice, Teddy Bloat, Tantivy Mucker-Maffick, Saure Bummer, and more - and events that tantalize the reader with suggestions of vast patterns only just past our comprehension.

So, not for the faint of heart, but stick with it ...
I picked up Gravity's Rainbow along with Slow Learner, a collection of short stories, after seeing a bumper sticker that said ?My other car is a Pynchon novel?. Though not an avid reader I do tend towards classics, classic Sci-Fi in particular.
I enjoyed Slow Learner but I guess I?m just not ...
