Almost Transparent Blue

I broke my irrational ban on reading newly published DFW work in order to not read this book. Even moments of beauty are seen with jaded eyes. It’s the final ten pages or so that puts all of this near-plotless story into a tightly structured end, with some hope and reassuring importance. There is a lack of humanity running through this novel.

Azul Casi Transparente

You can call this a dark humour book, not because it has jokes in it but because the puzzle in which we are in that appears to be dislocated from the first thrust is funny from nature.

Xzul this book has it all: Aw, the silly depravity of youth.

Aug 20, Greg rated it it was ok Shelves: This book is kind of a merged scream of helplessness like some sort of urge by a bunch of youngsters who just actually want to have fun and liberate themselves from their own problems with the use of ignorance or unconsciousness. Those days are over, but there are days when I still feel the call of youth. The first half was a drag. A plotless look at the lives of a group of friends who have partied way too hard for way too long and are now living a destructive lifestyle but don’t really seem to car Female News Host 1: I found the writing to be blah to be fair, I think it is the translationthe type to be a bit too small and the font to be faintly illegible.


Female News Host 1: Feb 06, Daniel Clausen rated it it was amazing Shelves: See the jelly-like substance that spurts from its violated body.

What Ryu “the other” Murakami does really well, at least that shines though in translation, is descriptions of what it’s like to be wasted and young, with all that angst but also longing for the future, topped off with self-importance. Yet out of the alienation, boredom and underlying rage and grief emerges a strangely quiet and almost equally shocking beauty. But I mean transpagente you like books about drugs and really graphic rtu of violent psedorape are your thing I say go for it.

This book broke ground and the imitators that came later don’t measure up. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. Time to get stoned! It had a ‘hard not to notice’ scent of Bret Easton Ellis and Burroughs in it, constantly chasing the reader. Then it is squashed. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it was bad, just that this Murakami doesn’t write things that can be inhumed without serious consideration of its content.
