Tears And Moving Sometimes Jumpand moving sometimes jump at me and my first impulse is to look away uickly But th This is absolutely brilliant I gave it 4 stars the first time around but this book Alcoholica Esoterica A Collection of Useful and Useless Information As It Relates to the History andConsumption of All Manner of Booze deserves 5 stars I love what Rabelaisoes with language and I m for the most part uite partial to Grandgousier s leadership Did you know that Rabelais was the first to write the word automate in French He coined many neologisms some of which are still used today in the French language This is a which are still used today in the French language This is a rich work that I will be returning to again and again for the rest of my academic career however long it lasts Highly recommend I had much much higher expectations I was expecting something similar to Voltaire s Zadig which I adored Something with a much greater ideaHonestly This is only making fun of certain aspects of 16th century French society I found no philosophy hidden in this book that might have made it worthwhile It is supposed to be fun Parody and stuff But really I just found it incredibly Chasing the Red Queen dull I took TWO weeks to read the 70 pages that constitute this book My point is this was boring Not in an it was a bit too serious or I like YA better way I was not expecting action packed chapters and beautiful metaphors or anything I was ready for an average educational read But I learned NOTHING from it and I enjoyed no second of it So Pointless read for me Iidn t read this particular edition I read from the Great Works booksThe whole story is hyperbole It s satire It s supposed to be irreverent and funny Some of the word combinations are unusual and its lists sometimes made me feel like I was reading a thesaurus There s what I Algorithms of the Intelligent Web d call eleven year old boy humor full of cod pieces private parts and rivers of urine For some reason I kind of like when Gargantua eats the salad and happens to eat six or so people at the same time who survive of courseThe book is about a giant Gargantua It follows his outrageous birth his education goes through a war started because of cakes and then to an abbey which is established after the battle is won in part thanks to a monk Because of the monk s help he is given the reward of being able to establish an over the top extravagant anti religious abbey where the only rule is something like Do whatever you want I can t say I liked it Iidn t hate it I was glad to finally finish reading it.
