Fight Club | Chuck Palahnuik

Could be confusing. But is brilliant. Glad I saw the movie first, as it helped to understand what was panning out. Looking forward to the graphic novel Fight Club 2.

On my day off and stumbled upon this book at Barnes and Noble and am instantly hooked. It‘s a satire of the future in the style of Vonnegut, Adams and Orwell. Funny and scary at the same time because we might be headed in this direction. But either way give this a read if it sounds a little intriguing to you.

Oh dear, a good satire can be so depressing. A timely read given our own Captain has just taken control of legal matters of interest to himself. When did it even become 'legal' for an American president to pardon a murderer or rapist? 'No one is above the law' it says in the Constitution. Not true says I, we're living in a fascist state, have been for some time. This idiot at the helm is now showing us what's possible. U.S.A!
Great book.

The Cockroach | Ian McEwan

Billed as a ‘Brexit satire‘, this slim volume (98 pages) is not so much a novella as a Doctor Who style plot thrown over an essay of McEwan‘s political opinions. There are some mildly amusing moments, but nothing new or enlightening. A bit disappointing, really.

On the plus side, that‘s the “#satire” box on my #JennyIs30 bingo card crossed off.

Amnesty | Aravind Adiga

“If someone is denied rights, do they still maintain responsibilities?”
A clever #satire written by Booker winner Aravind Adiga. Danny enters Australia on a student visa only to discover his university is a scam. Choosing to stay in the country without attending school is considered illegal & if caught he will face deportation. Danny, honest & hardworking becomes a house cleaner constantly staying one step ahead of the legal system.👇🏽

Cinfhen When he becomes privy to information regarding a murder he must decide to stay quiet (which keeps him safe) or report a crime (which jeopardizes his status). Great for bookclub discussion. #JennyIs30 3w
Cinfhen It‘s a slim story but most is an internal dialogue that might grate on some readers nerves. I‘m glad it wasn‘t longer and even I drew tired of Danny‘s musings near the end. 3w
Megabooks Great review!! I can‘t decide if I‘d like it or not. 3w

This book has moments of insanely good writing, and moments of confusion. Taken as a whole, and given its importance, I recommend this book. But plan on a long slog.

LauraJ One of my favorites. Welcome to Litsy! 3w
Aims42 Good to know, I attempted it last year. I‘ll have to give it another try 👍🏻 3w
Markswelstad @LauraJ thank you! 3w
Markswelstad @Aims42 it‘s not easy but keep with it, it‘s worth it. It might help to keep track of the characters; there are a lot of them and it can get confusing. 3w
