Ages much f which i read Be CentsAble: How to Cut Your Household Budget in Half on the el hoping none would glance into the book and see the inevitably sordid brutal sex scene Academic Inbreeding and Mobility in Higher Education: Global Perspectives of the moment i emerged from the el tunnel with new eyes toward the world as if the veil had been dropped it s a rare book that accomplishes such a thing in its readers so i was sold but despite how brilliant it was i m not sure when i ll want to dive into anotherf jelinek s works again it was brutal to read and by halfway through i wanted a significant number Radio Crackling, Radio Gone of the characters to die also i can t imagine having anyone with whom to discuss this book i wouldn t dare recommend it to anyone lest they hate me for it I couldn t finish it I think Jelinek is thenly person who understands it completely and perfectly I sure don t There is something deeply disturbing about this book This won the Nobel Prize What a joke Its prose is all The Legend of Joaquin Murrieta: California's Gold Rush Bandit over the place the story is depressing And the story itself takes so fricking long to get into such are the excessive descriptionsf things scenery and metaphors so much so Limey Gumshoe one forgets what the novel is about I wasn t too sure that I d want to read about sexual violence rape in marriage anyway I didn t finish it I barely made 15 pages So not my thing It was all mind numbing dull and erratic attempts at metaphors analogies and descriptors rather than story telling I would have given it zero stars despite havingnly managed to read 15 pages The OCD in me was compelled to rate it anyway this was the final nail in my already sturdy feminist coffinmansion this book broke my 3rd eye in 80 ways when i was 17 jelinek s musicality transcended what i thought belonged in sentences its cadence and beauty allowing for the violence it contains to be both swallowed and amplified like those pills with dinosaur sponges in them it s harder to recommend to friends than say Wonderful Wonderful Times but to be 17 to have stumbled upon this to learn that prose could be poetic and that aggression was not Maritime Academy Graduate: Memoir Of A Third Mate only nuanced but still all redredred was important something i d try to passn to any critically thinking latently frustrated young woman about to embark for adulthood trigger warning rapeI loved a lot f this book Elfriede Jelinek is a misandrist extraordinaire and refuses to be subtle in her indictments f men That s great But after a certain point I needed this book to be done Desperately so I had to goad myself with sugar cookies and a strawberry smoothie in Trouble Looking for a Place to Happen order to go through with my final push There arenly so many euphemisms for dick and forced sex that a person can reasonably handle and it gets repetitive and exhausting after a while The Dressed for Thrills: 100 Years of Halloween Costumes and Masquerade only thing the husband in this book did was rape his wifer talk about raping his wife Harcourt School Publishers Collections or plan to rape his wifer drug their child so he could rape his wife in peace It s horrifying And even the solace she tries to take in another man backfires in maybe the most stomach churning way I have ever read From Paella to Porridge: A Farewell to Mallorca and a Scottish Adventure on paper Nothing that happens in this book is good You will not feel cozy You might at most smirk at the thoughtf castrating someone This shit is bleak But my respect On Toby's Terms of Elfriede Jelinek remains strong I think we just need to gon a break Nobody does it better than Elfriede Jelinek when it comes to writing about the filthy side f human beings not just any dark side real filthy sideA husband sexually abuses his housewife Industrialists and politicians abuse the nature Herman is the manager director f a paper mill in Austrian countryside who exploits the nature and local people Gerti his housewife is sexually exploited by Hermann Max Lerner: Pilgrim in the Promised Land on daily basisGerti wanders into a nearby skiing resort in her evening gown and slippers at the heightf her drunkenness has a sexual encounter with Michael a self centered youth with political hopes For 23 f this book Gerti s laborious walking episode is interlaced with fragments f her daily sexual abuses this is a beautiful piece Indiscretion of narrationThere is some allegorical connection between the sexual abuse and capitalism Elfriede Jelinek s lame marxist remarks could have been toned down a bit though They are so repetitive and really getn to your nerves towards the endElfriede Jelinek is the kind Indiscretion of writer who makes you feel ashamed for not knowing the language a book wasriginally written Even though Michael Hulse did a wonderful job in translating this complex prose somehow you don t get to sufficiently experience the musical flow f voices and counter voices for which Elfride Jelinek is known forOne word f caution this is not a book for weak hearts You are wading into a dangerous water you might end up despising everything in life and everybody in the world It s as though Godard and Breillat had a chil.
