We hope you enjoy this book review by
The books shown at the left are the most popular David Foster Wallace
books. Click on them to see details.
This book consists of ten essays dealing with various subjects. Just to name a few are the following:
Do Lobsters Feel Pain?
Did Franz Kafka have a sick sense of humor?
Who won Adult Video New's Female Performer of the Year Award?
My favorite is the one called "Do Lobsters Feel Pain" because this is a question many people have often asked including me. David's answer to this is we will have to ask the lobster to really be sure. After all, who else would really know if the lobster feels pain when thrown into boiling water?
David is such an intelligent writer. He could take any subject and write an essay that will make you really think and at the same time give you a few laughs. In order to be able to write essays of this quality, the author has to have a tremendous imagination. This book has to be one of the funniest collection of essays that this author has written. This book is highly recommended.
