My first excursion into the Pynchonesueand it left me disorientated introspective and utterly confused about how exactly I feel about it I m taking the cowards way out and giving it three stars even though that makes me feel like I m punting the responsibility football and doing my best imitation of an ostrich when trouble walks by I am going to have to re read this My assumption is that I began this book taking Pynchon a little too lightly I decided to start my exploration of Pynchon here because it s widely considered his most accessible work I figured even as addled as my brain is with wine sediment and Milk Duds my big boy education would serve as an adeuate navigator on this little journey Well around page 21 I started getting that I m lost have you seen my momma feeling and there s not a single character in this story trustworthy enough to ask directions on how to get back to the plot This much I think I knowOedipa Mass get used to monikers like that as every character s name is a play on words is a clever self motivated middle aged housewife from California who isn t above shagging the occasional stranger not her husband hell it s the 60 s Oedipa s ex shag partner Pierce Inverarity dies uber rich and leaves her as co executor of his estate Inverarity is a practical joker extraordinaire and so the idea that everything may not be as it seems is teed up immediately However Oedipa is the kind of woman who loves a mystery and she feels compelled to play the part that Inverarity has created for her If it was really Pierce s attempt to leave an organized something behind after his own annihilation then it was part of her duty wasn t it to bestow life on what had persisted to try to be what Driblette was the dark machine in the centre of the planetarium to bring the estate into pulsing stelliferous Meaning all in a soaring dome around her Those first 20 pages were cake and I was feeling very much in controlThen page 21through the rest of the novel about 180 pages send Oedipa and the reader on a fragmented surreal allusion soaked reality bentwarpedtwisted sojourn that felt a bit like a David LynchDavid Mamet collaboration where nothing and no one is anywhere close to what they seem Dense compact multi layered prose and some memorable oddball characters make the confusion plenty entertaining but grasping the central core of the piece was rather elusive at least for me The framing edgework of the story is as historical mystery centered on an alleged vast conspiracy involving a secret underground postal carrier network known as Trystero The calling cardicon of this shadowy organization is Which is a mockery of the horn symbolizing the real life postal carrier known as Thurn and Taxis Eventually I gathered that the major theme being explored by Pynchon is the untrustworthiness of communication and that it s impossible to verify information because the source is always distorted from the standpoint of the observer Thus communication when filtered through the lens of the recipient often brings confusion than enlightenment and uestions than answers Though she knew even less about radios than about Southern Californians there were to both outward patterns a hieroglyphic sense of concealed meaning of an intent to communicate At least I think that is what Pynchon was getting at in this book My problem was that I didn t clue into that until late into the story and by that time I was simply riding the crest of the enjoyable language and mini scenes into the finish line Having now read the book I feel like if I were to go back and read it again knowing what I now know I will be able to get far out of it I guess I might also realize that I am reading too much into it and the emperor really has no clothes For now I will give Pynchon the benefit of the doubt Based on his reputation he has certainly earned it Even given my less than perfect understanding of the nuances moving through the narrative there is much to enjoy There are some wonderful scenes and character interactions that I loved For example the The Courier s Tragedy is a play that Oedipa sees that actually touches on the themes of the wider novel I thought it was fascinating There is also some magnificent passages that I could read simply to enjoy the language Everybody who says the same words is the same person if the spectra are the same only they happen differently in time you dig But the time is arbitrary You pick your zero point anywhere you want that way you can shuffle each person s time line sideways till they all coincide Then you d have this big God maybe a couple hundred million chorus saying rich chocolaty goodness together and it would all be the same voice Language like that is always a pleasure to read However without the glue of understanding all that Pynchon was attempting to say my enjoyment was somewhat muted That s just me I enjoyed the experience of reading this and as I mentioned to a GR friend the other day I have thought better of this book during the days since I finished this than I did while I was actually reading it That tells me that the book affected me and seeped into my brain than I was able to consciously detect Maybe that s how Pynchon works I m not sure However it is a uestion I plan to investigate by visiting his other works as well as returning to

    Y'know I feel sorry for Pynchon He's gained a reputation as a 'difficult writer' This problem plagues Faulkner as well People go into Pynchon's and Faulkner's novels and uickly realise that things happen very differently in here and thus unnerved by the shock of the new hastily retreat It's a pity My best advice for reading Pynchon?
