I just got the book and I've read to about page 60.  I'm struck by two things:  the similarity of Wallace's prose to Don DeLillo's -- the lilt of many conversations recalls many of the conversations in White Noise, and the sheer giddiness of the book.  It strives to be quirky and weird, which suprises me because I've read some of David Foster Wallace's other writings and he seemed fairly down to earth for a man who used ten dollar words so often.
