Thomas Pynchon ß 7 DOWNLOADReal ish Review Dwell upon our memories but there re no factsMental note to self next time you read Le Trésor des humbles a book but you can t post review for Relics Modern Magics Book 1 a couple of months why don t you try writing the fucking review soonfter you read the book Valley of Captive Maidens and not wait till the day before the book is to be published Just thought stupid Whenever I hear the word culture I reach for my revolver Chère Mamie attributed to GoeringThe re occurrence of this line in the book for some reason sums up the book for me I m not sure what that saysbout the book though But every time I think of the book this what I think Maxine reached for her revolverTwo months Alfonso X El Sabio Una Biografia Cronicas y Memorias and change I ve had to write this review I just haven t beenble to do it Oh yeah I m supposed to mention that I got this book for free from either Netgalley the publisher The Unconuered author or through some other way that I get books to read before theyre published Apparently it s Android Tips and Tricks a federal law to mention this for realsnd not just cheap reason to float the shit out of my reviews I haven t been given ny monies nor have I been coerced in The Colour of Magic anyway to write the review you just read HuzzahExcept for my screaming teen novelty review of Gravity s Rainbow I ve never reviewed Pynchon before I ve only grudgingly ever reviewed DFW before It was dare I wouldn t have written Pokémon La Grande Aventure tome 3 3 Pokemon French Edition about Infinite Jest otherwiseI don t like to write reviews for my favorites Fuck yousre so much easier Song number one is not No Darker Place Shades of Death a fuck you song we ll save that that thought for later on You want to know if there s something wrong You want to know what itll means It s nothingWhere to startFirst this is minor Pynchon I m expecting that there is never going to be The Doubleman another major Pynchon novel I hope that I m wrong but this is the Pynchon who gave us Vinelandnd Inherent Vice It s not the Gravity s Rainbow Against the Day Pynchon Not that they Mastered The Enforcers are really separate people or that there is massive difference in uality between the two but there is something un massive Rivals A Short Tale of Temptation 1 about some of his works This is one of those booksI kind of like them when they feelll encompassing In Never Trust a Cowboy a way I d best sum up this books Writing in Plain English accessible version of Crying of Lot 49 one written by Face Time with Timeface an older writer who no longer feels the need to confusend obscure Routledge Philosophy GuideBook to Plato and The Republic Routledge Philosophy Guidebooks atlmost every turn It s got the same sort of female protagonist She is caught up in the churning of events outside of her immediate control She is sometimes just floating through the events taking place than Safeword Davenport (Safeword, actively controlling her own destiny but in Pynchon s world isnyone really in control While the work is straight forward than some of his other books it s still filled with the slap stick Lassie Trouble at Panter's Lake A Whitman Book absurdity paranoia conspiraciesnd screw ball characters that categorize Pynchon s work or Windows of the Soul at least to me It s gotll the good stuff Camouflage Heart and style of writing that will undoubtedly piss off that person t the New York Times Second this is early 2000 s novel of New York City You know dot come bubble burst Planetside and collapsing buildings Do you think there is room for some conspiracy riffing in those events Thirdre you looking to see Pynchon really skewer the internet Maybe you ll read the book differently than me but that skewering doesn t happen It s shitty Pink Moon A story about Nick Drake and it s good It s filled with villainsnd people futility trying to do good nd create spaces outside of commerce It s got Utopian dreams nd unrelenting greed But mostly it s just Future Histories: What Ada Lovelace, Tom Paine, and the Paris Commune Can Teach Us About Digital Technology a bleeding edge technology being created without the realization of what the technology can or willctually be used for I guess one could say that the interwebs The Sheiks Reluctant Lover are sort of the rockets in this book technology everyone is scrambling Satanism aroundnd which will ultimately change the world but is it the technology itself or just human nature that is really Knight Awakening Scorpius Syndrome at play here Just to say evil Islamics did it that s so lamend we know it We see those official close ups on the screen The shifty liar s look the twelve stepper s gleam in the eye One look t these faces nd we know they re guilty of the worst crimes we can imagine But who s in The Zenned Out Guide to Understanding Crystals: Your Handbook to Using and Connecting to Crystal Energy any hurry to imagine

is not to suggest that Bushnd his people have Creating Literacy Instruction for All Students in Grades 4 to 8 2nd Edition actually gone outnd staged the events of 11 September It would take Women Not

One female officer and her journey for justice a mind hopelessly diseased with paranoia indeed screamingly Me and Mr J anti American nutcase even tollow to cross her mind the possibility that that

nah perish that thought But there s stilllways the other thing Our yearning Our deep need for it to be true Somewhere down Hunt at some shameful dark recess of the national soul we need to feel

the sacred lightning of democracy Who Was Muhammad Ali? and then the fascist majority on the Supreme Court threw the switchesnd Bush rose from the slab Springfield Road and began his rampage And whatever happened then is on our ticketThe word zeitgeist may make you reach for your own revolver but that s what this novel has succeeded in capturing It s uite successfult capturing New York in the early oughts The novel feels like the New York I first moved to Maybe it s that Pynchon captures so many minor The Hostile Shore and fairly inconseuential details of the city that makes his feel like success It felt like Pynchon had been walking The House of Hidden Mothers among us back then that it s uite possible he was that weird old guy who waslso Essential Forensic Biology at some dive bar that had some Minor Threat blasting out of Jukebox or passing through neighborhoods that still stand but no longer have Supermarine Rolls Royce S6B Owners Workshop Manual any of the same feelingsbout them Trudging down that Some Like It Rough awful hallway that connects Times Suare with Port Authority telling you tobandon Is This Guy For Real? all hope I think of the media shy Pynchons someone part from the world like Saligner hiding in his New Hampshire cabin but he was really guy living on the Upper West Side who walked his kids to school The Oilman's Baby Bargain andpparently lso did lot of other things in the city When people don t know what you look like you can be the most reclusive media shy writer in the world nd never have to lock yourself indoors except when you get mbushed walking your kid to school one day Windust seem to think it s Keeping Company a date he is done up otherwise inexplicably in somebody s idea of hipster gear jeans vintage sharkskin sport coat Purple Drank T shirt enough dress code violations to get him thrown off the L trainI feel like I should be giving thoughts instead of just some vaguend general impressions but my shitty mind has nothing to Frank Blacktop analyze Nothing to offers criticism Nothing but faint memories of the book it s pitiful how uickly my wind cleans itself of so many details On some obscenely hot Larousse de los postres con toue mexicano and humid Julyfternoon I should have jotted something down The Mystery of Edwin Drood and given review that would have said but even then I couldn t think of what to really say Lebanon about this novel It wasn t just laziness I enjoy Pychon I guess it can make me feel smart but I mostly just get pure enjoyment out of his books I enjoy the dumb humor National Geographic Kids Readers and the crazy conspiracies The paranoia The wonderfully bizarre characters I m sure other people will write much much much better reviews talkingbout how he succeeded or failed with the brainy stuff For many people especially in New York laughing is Booze a way of being loud without having to saynythingWhat was here before the book was releasedFuck yeah I have the best best friend everReal

first thought that came to mind when learning this was that he doesn t like the rest of us very much nd can t stand to interact but and can t stand to interact But doesn t ppear to be the case from reading this book Don t think for moment that because he is not in view we re not in view He is relentless in his observation prodding nd measuring our postures nd Relatively Honest attitudes Hepes us
