5.0 out of 5 stars A surreal journey into chaos, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Melancholy of Resistance (Paperback)
This is a great novel. Mind you, it's not easy to read.
The narration takes you into a surreal world, a nightmare version of a dusty town. The narration is flowing in and out of the minds of the dreamlike characters. This novel is about impending changes and the fears relating to these changes. It's especially interesting to read this now with the world in such a state of economical and social upheaval.
The characters are all somewhat existing on their margins, their fears, feelings are so much like what we probably have in the bottom of our souls; it sometimes leaves me speechless.
You shouldn't be looking for symbols, etc in this text, it's more complex than that, the stuffed whale, the square with the touts are all images, feelings from somewhere very primordial, you have to feel this novel.
