    eBook George Saunders ☆ ☆ Pastoralia MOBI · pastoralia mobile, Pastoralia PDFDECEMBER EDIT So when this title popped up as someone 'liked' it I thought wow I am truly losing my mind I don't recognize that title And that cover? That looks COMPLETELY unlike my taste When I investigated further I discovered it was a collection not the short story I originally reviewed Yet another stand alone story originally rated and reviewed that was smashed into a new title I officially Wish a Thousand Female Mosuitoes Upon Each of the Librarians that condone this shitMeanwhile back at the review for Sea Oak Matt Merton comes back on the reality show and explains that last week's show on suicide in which the parents watched a reenactment of their son's suicide was a healing process for the parents then shows a video of the parents admitting it was a healing processSaunders manages a truly amazing tone so dry t

    eBook George Saunders ☆ ☆ Pastoralia MOBI · pastoralia mobile, Pastoralia PDF“Bread and circuses” ancients used to say And George Saunders smartly turns the art of modern entertainment into an effervescent absurdist comedy Pastoralia is some sort of luna park or freak show established to educate and amuse the public The protagonist works there impersonating a cavemanAnd the ways the society is being entertained tell everything about society as such too“Remember I told you about Chief Joseph who never stopped walking?

    eBook George Saunders ☆ ☆ Pastoralia MOBI · pastoralia mobile, Pastoralia PDFI think that if the arrangement of this collection had been reversed I would be singing a different tune right now but as it stands I am a bit torn regarding rating this thing Man these stories are well written Saunders is darkly witty and clearly his heart is in the right place His main point of contention with the modern world is the reckless hammer of Capitalism an easy target to be sure but that is arguably all the reason to call it into uestion The injuries that it inflicts are almost universally felt In Pastoralia Saunders has created a series of near future worlds sprinkled with Dystopian and Horror elements in which the voyeuristic tendencies and indiscriminately exploitative undercurrents of modern society are heightened in such a way that they become grossly comical The name of the game is satire and he pulls out all the stops while driving home just how pathetically isolating spirit breaking and hedon making the process of staying above wat

    eBook George Saunders ☆ ☆ Pastoralia MOBI · pastoralia mobile, Pastoralia PDFBased on the opinions of people with excellent taste in books I knew I was in for something good when I grabbed Pastoralia from the shelf the other day I didn't know what to expect beyond that but it sure wasn't the sardonic giggles this collection gave me Does everyone find their first foray into Saunders's mind this darkly endearing? 'Cause lemme tell you you all led me somewhere I can't wait to revisitThere is something off about the worlds Saunders creates Not off the charts unbelievably weird view spoileryeah he makes the reanimated telekinetic and downright draconian corpse of a once beloved aunt seem like a thing that could totally happen because he's that good and as a character observed maybe it does happen all the time but who would believe it so why bother with the crazy talk and risk everyone thinki
