I started with the intro until I realized it had spoilers. Also, it is difficult to appreciate the content of the intros without reading the story first and enjoying it.

The intro of the 30th anniversary edition helps with this loose end. I enjoyed the writing style too. I initially wasn't sure why this book was nominated as a humor selection.
I do wish I had done this also. I tried again to read this book and probably read about 20 pages before giving up. Since it was a library loan I doubt I'll ever read it.
