* TheFundamentalist: Remy Marathe, judging by his conversations with Steeply on the moral health of the O.N.A.N. For example, he sees the tendency to condemn people as "fundamentalists" as proof that they are aimless and without cause.



* GrammarNazi: Avril Incandenza, in both the best and worst possible ways.

* GrammarNazi: Avril Incandenza, in both the best and worst possible ways. Case in point, her crusade to change "10 Items or Less" to "10 Items or Fewer" is repeatedly brought up when discussing her.



* NothingIsScarier: One of the creepiest things about the AFR is a sound identified as "The Squeak", coming from their wheels. Naturally, if you hear "The Squeak", you're royally screwed.

Creator/DavidFosterWallace's relentless {{doorstopper}} of a novel, first published in 1996. ''Infinite Jest'' takes place in [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture the not-too-distant future]], around the Enfield Tennis Academy and the neighboring Ennet House Drug and Alcohol Recovery House (redundancy ''sic'') in suburban UsefulNotes/{{Boston}}. Before he died, James Incandenza, founder of the ETA and film auteur, created a movie so mesmerizingly entertaining that the master copy is being sought as a weapon by Canadian terrorists and the US government. Dealing with issues like the nature of the self, family, emptiness and absence, addiction and recovery, and the minutia of tennis, there's just no way to adequately summarize this massively complex novel here. With nearly 100 pages of end notes, this may be one of the only novels for which you will need to use two bookmarks simultaneously.
