Read full description of the books:



This Companion was extremely beneficial in reading Pynchon's novel, especially giving reference to the social context and pop culture allusions that appear on nearly every page. However, I had to often set it aside, only referring back to it every so often since there was so much information that it impeded my forward progress in the actual book. I would recommend it to all readers, but it will come in handy the most on a second read. It should be noted that a first time reader may want to skip any commentary of the chapters as quite a bit of plot that won't occur until much later appears before each chapter. Well worth the money, a lot that I learned from reading this would have been equally interesting without Pynchon's novel as a reason to seek it out.
