    "Makes the actual GR book much more accessible"
    What did you like most about The Gravity's Rainbow Handbook?

    Gives a really good mental map of the book, the structure and the characters but in no way diminishes the actual novel.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Gravity's Rainbow Handbook?

    The list of the characters, some very droll comments in there.


    What does Stephen Paul Aulridge Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    A very measured reading but eminently listenable to.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but that was not the intention of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Essential reading before tackling GR
