Gravity's Rainbow
Gravity's Rainbow | Thomas Pynchon
Winner of the 1974 National Book Award “A screaming comes across the sky. . .” A few months after the Germans’ secret V-2 rocket bombs begin falling on London, British Intelligence discovers that a map of the city pinpointing the sexual conquests of one Lieutenant Tyrone Slothrop, U.S. Army, corresponds identically to a map showing the V-2 impact sites. The implications of this discovery will launch Slothrop on an amazing journey across war-torn Europe, fleeing an international cabal of military-industrial superpowers, in search of the mysterious Rocket 00000, through a wildly comic extravaganza that has been hailed in The New Republic as “the most profound and accomplished American novel since the end of World War II.”

#24b42019 will not be completed for me, but my #readathon did result in me FINALLY finishing Gravity's Rainbow!!!

Definitely an amazing work of literature...but I don't know that I could recommend it to people generally. Long, difficult, straight-up disgusting, and very very dense. But what Pynchon has to say, he says very well, and I am glad to have read it.

@Andrew65 @TheReadingMermaid

Andrew65 A great result but don‘t forget you still have tomorrow 😊👍👏 6mo

I'm 100% positive that it is no accident that the premise of the book--Slothrop being the legendary "Rocketman"--occurs with formal introductory fanfare almost exactly halfway through the book.

julesG It's missing an N though. The word should be "Raketenmensch". ? 6mo
nudibranch @julesG right?? This edition has an absurd number of typos. 🤦‍♀️ 6mo
julesG It could just be a translation mistake, or not knowing German grammar. Unless it's spelled correctly in other cases. 6mo
See All 15 Comments
Ruthiella My companion guide by Steve C Weisenburger notes the error in German but also asks why “Mensch” and not “Mann”? 6mo
LaLecture Why is this character called acid (Säure) ?? It looks so funny to see German words in the middle of an English text ?. 6mo
LaLecture @julesG Do you know the TV show “Grimm”? It‘s based on Grimm‘s fairy tales and all the magical creatures are called by German names but almost every name has a grammar mistake in it, much like this one. So cringy 😅. One wonders if they didn‘t know a single German speaking person to ask for help. Anyway, what I wanted to say by that is that mistake like this are apparently common ^^. 6mo
LaLecture @Ruthiella I don‘t know the context in this book but in general there are several instances where “man” or “men” in English would be translated as “Mensch” in German. “Caveman” is “Höhlenmensch“, for example, maybe because “men” is also used in a broader sense in English, referring not only to men but to humans in general. (edited) 6mo
julesG @Ruthiella Man can be both, Mensch or Mann. Depending on whether it's related to like mankind - that's Menschheit not Mannheit (the latter sounds real crazy, hinting at potency). 6mo
julesG @LaLecture I was also wondering about the Säure character. 6mo
julesG @LaLecture Only saw a few episodes of Grimm. Was annoyed by the wrong German. I mean, as you just said, is it really that difficult to find someone to check these tiny German bits? (also my issue with some things in The Book Thief). It can be done well though. Just watched Brannagh's Murder on the Orient Express. The German was accurate, even if the pronunciation had an English accent (especially the character who was supposed to be German). 6mo
LaLecture @julesG That‘s another thing that bothers me (not only with German). If you don‘t have any actors who can speak that accent believably, why not hire an actor who is actually a native of that language? 6mo
julesG @LaLecture Or give them a pronunciation/diction teacher. Actors learn to pronounce crazy alien languages, like Klingon, why not teach them those few sentences properly? 6mo
nudibranch @julesG @LaLecture Säure is a nickname given to a guy who deals opium, who Carrie's a bottle of whiskey in his coat, and pretends its acid that he is willing to use as a weapon if a deal goes bad. 6mo
nudibranch *carries. Ugh silly autocorrect. 6mo

jmofo Welcome! I love this book but I also had to start it over a few times. It‘s perfectly okay to bail, too, if a book‘s not speaking to you. Are you enjoying it at all? 6mo
See All 10 Comments
nudibranch @jmofo thanks! It's a brilliant book, no doubt, and I'm learning a lot about the craft of writing from reading it...so I would say I'm enjoying it. It's just really densely charactered, and occasionally is quite the stomach churner. 6mo
jmofo @nudibranch haha yep. He did not make a fluffy read. I sort of picture these kinds of books to be mountains authors felt they had to climb to write and the books, in turn, are mountains for us to climb to read. 6mo
jmofo @nudibranch are you interested in the craft of writing as a writer? 6mo
nudibranch @jmofo Haha yeah that's a pretty accurate description. And yes, I very much am! I feel like this sums me up pretty perfectly: https://bit.ly/2BHwWX6 6mo
Graywacke I worked through it last year, but used a guide and let myself go really slow. I was going to read all his books last year, but eventually decided it was more work than fun. But this one is both - work and fun. Wish you well. 6mo
nudibranch @Graywacke thanks for the well wishes! I couldn't imagine trying to slog through pynchon's oeuvre in a single year. Just thinking about it makes me exhausted, haha! 6mo
Graywacke @nudibranch it was fun and fascinating. But M&D was just too frustrating with out any normal prose anywhere. So that was where I stopped. 6mo

I bailed after 50 pages. I wanted to bail before, but I figured when a person takes the trouble to write a novel of about 900 pages, I should at least give him the chance to change my mind. I didn't.

If you listen to podcasts and you aren't listening to Overdue, I implore you to start. Craig and Andrew take turns reading books that "you really should have read already" and then discuss them, spoilers and all. These two will read anything from the Hardy Boys to The Odyssey. They are hilarious and smart, and above all, devoted to reading.

Happy Holidays! First post in weeks. Epic reading slump. I could blame Gravity's Rainbow, but I'm not going to point any fingers, Mr. Pynchon. I came nowhere near my reading goals for the year, but I did lose 40 pounds, biked and hiked 50 trails with my wife, and finished a new draft of my novel. Settling in for a few days off and hopefully some time to read, write, and eat cookies. Best wishes to all my Litsy friends and your families.

I seem to have trouble finishing larger books consistently; this and Infinite Jest I've started reading on 2 occasions, only to stop a couple hundred pages in.

I own 2 copies of this specific edition: one was a Christmas gift, the other I bought after the first one got damaged when my fridge leaked. That one's still readable, I just got the second one for display purposes.

This is the most fun I've ever had reading Gravity's Rainbow. I have failed multiple times. My system: I read a few chapters, listen to the Pynchon in Public podcast analysis, and then listen to the audiobook as a refresher. It's a book club of one. The novel is dense yet rewarding. Bursting with ideas and so damn funny. It's like falling asleep in a movie theater, dreaming, waking up, watching the movie, dreaming, and then back to reality.

Eamann I've tried and failed to read this ten times but I think you just sold me on try number eleven 2y
ReadingEnvy The first time I read it I zeroed in on the love story! 2y
manifestsanity @ReadingEnvy I just finished the section Beyond the Zero! It's all stream of conscious, metafiction, and meandering, but so goofy and weird. There is a distinct system of ideas and philosophy. Mindblowing stuff. Having a blast reading harder. 2y

I have attempted and failed to read Thomas Pynchon's novel "Gravity's Rainbow" more times than I care to admit. As a silly literary exercise, I am experimenting with a new method to scale this daunting postmodern doorstop-of-Everest-proportions. Audiobook shall be my Sherpa! That is 30+ hours of wacky World War II antics, bizarro cartoon lunacy, psychedelic paranoia on parade, and far out physics. Wish me luck, folks. #bookrainbow #fallintobooks

MCYmermaid Good luck! I think I made it less than 40 pages. YMMV. 2y

Happy 80th birthday to Thomas Pynchon!

Gravity's Rainbow is my favorite book. I've read it four times...and through parts of it countless times. This copy (with Kerouac's 'Desolation Angels') has been with me road tripping across 25+ US states.
It's an endlessly creative, weird, and hilarious romp that never stops impressing me.

This is my Everest. After numerous failed attempts, I will one day slay this monstrous beast. Pynchon is a goofy bastard but he baffles me. I love the epigraph by rocket scientist Wernher Von Braun at the book's opening:

"Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation. Everything science has taught me, and continues to teach me, strengthens my belief in the continuity of our spiritual existence after death."
