Not digging the constant sidebars

I didn't particularly care for this story. Its length was the initial turn off, but Wallace's style didn't help anything. I simply COULD NOT focus on the story with all of the sidebar information. I feel like Wallace is obviously a realllly smart dude--but he's too willing to show it. Some of the side boxes were two-thirds of a page. How am I supposed to focus on all of the info on the real page when most of the space is devoted to explaining some obscure reference from the first sentence. I could see myself liking Wallace as a writer, but only if he simplifies things as far as his explanations and five dollar words are concerned. Plus, did I mention it's reallllly long??
