Trailer ☆ Great Apes PDF by Í Will Self Absolutely amazing.
It s shocking when you re realize that EVERYTHING is relative and if we take something as absolute, it s not because we re not subjective it s because we humbly perceive our subjectivity as superior hence we can say it s objectivity just because we can there is nobody to question that This book questions that and that s why it s so striking and deeply disturbing Sexually driven and obsessed like everything of Self Great read.

Phil sezIf I was an ape I would have corrective surgery and become Phil again I like being Phil because the other kids in the class know my awesomeness as Phil gets them places, gets them into social

let myself become an ape, using my incredible upper body strength to climb hanging straps and r I 1st read mention of Will Self in a text by Stewart Home Home insulted Self as being something along the lines of a rich Oxford junkie who doesn t deserve his reputation as an underground writer Since I d never heard of Self before, he had no reputation w me at all Knowing Stewart s tendency to publically degrade anyone who he perceives as competition, I didn t take the negativity as representative of any substantial critical take After all, it seems that Home s usual intention is to discourage conformists sycophants from even experiencing the work of the people he puts down by making experiencing such work uncool Thusly, idiots can automatically hate Self s writing on the basis of Home s word never discover for themselves whether Self s writing might beinteresting than Home s W that in mind, when I f read the STOP SMILING interview with author Will Self ABUSE OF SELFThe Stop Smiling Interview with Will SelfBy Sally Vincent This interview originally appeared in the STOP SMILING Photography Issue The first time I laid eyes on Will Self, he was monologuing about flying buttresses to a startled and ever increasing audience of slack jawed strangers, seemingly dumbstruck by his magniloquence It was as though he couldn t help himself As though all this passion about architecture had been building up in his brain, to be unleashed at this moment simply because someone I can t remember who was having their book launch in this vaulted, elegant old building and the sheer grandeur of it all had broken a dam in his corpus callosum It was, I have to say, an entirely beguiling experience Later that evening, my best friend introd Very funny, and mucherotic than I was prepared for so be comfortable with chimp porn if you re going to read this It may sound trite and possibly is lifted from the back cover of the book , but this novel did make me think about what it means to be human And I was pleased and surprised when I didn t get the ending I hoped for.
Plus I only had to look up definitions for, like, ten words, max.
Okay, this one gets a point for concept and one for some nice prose, when the author isn t trying to beat you over the head with how clever he is and introduce you to a new twenty dollar word with each paragraph However, the ape dialogue, which is a mixture of English with simian grunts and barks, is just plain annoying There s only so many Wraaf s and Hoo Graaa s I can stand Incest and genitalia displaying may well be an important part of chimpanzee culture, but I just can t get on board with a book that contains the sentence Leave your poor aunt alone, can t you see the state of her vagina.
I read this book mainly because of that awful picture on the cover, which was also strangely intriguing, and because I d heard good things about Will Self I found myself frustrated not twenty pages in, however, by both the language which was ridiculously over written and the gimmicky nature of the plot a bunch of apes act like people, basically , both of which stood in for any meaningful plot I m giving this book one star, then, because it didn t make me feel anything at all Yes, I understand the social issues it explores and the juxtaposition of instinctive behavior with civilization an issue with which we all wrestle on some level, I suppose but an entire novel wasn t necessary to explore it This book is a gimmick, then,than a story, and I really didn t enjoy it at all.
