Description

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.”

Customer Reviews

Funny, extraordinarily brilliant and a bit difficult

Not an easy book, but its pleasures are profound. Gravity's Rainbow is a tale told by a genius, signifying everything about the insane quest for control at the heart of the 20th century. And it's funny. Really funny. And detailed and dense and exquisitely written. And filled to the brim with sly puns and looney tunes. There are moments reading this book where I felt honored to be a member of the same species as its creator. It's one of the most outlandish stories ever told, spun by the finest storyteller you'll never know. But it's not for the faint of brain.

Absolute Genius

Very complex. Very funny. Absolute genius.
