My Idea of Fun

My Idea of Fun Will Self has established himself as one of the most brilliant, daring, and inventive writers of his generation My Idea of Fun is Will Self s highly acclaimed first novel The story of a devilishly clever international financier marketing wizard and his young apprentice, My Idea of Fun is both a frighteningly dark subterranean exploration of capitalism run rampant and a wickedly sharp, technically acute display of linguistic pyrotechnics that glows with pure white hot brilliance Ian Wharton is a very ordinary young man until he is taken under the wing of a gentleman known variously as Mr Broadhurst, Samuel Northcliff, and finally and simply the Fat Controller Loudmouthed, impeccably tailored, and a fount of bombastic erudition, the Fat Controller initiates Ian into the dark secrets of his arts of marketing, money, and the human psyche and takes Ian, and the reader, on a wild voyage around the edges of reality As we careen into the twenty first century, Self perfectly captures the zeitgeist of our times money is the only common language consumerism, violence, and psychosis drug induced and otherwise prevail and the human soul has become the ultimate product.

    Will Self s first proper novel is about as rude, unruly, and raucously loquacious as one would come to expect from the writer who likes to decorate every page with trinkets of unfamiliar locution, who has a penchant for endless slithers of alliteration, who will take the time to describe the hairs in a hobo s nose with great detail and zest, and who will shock your puritan sensibilities by inexplicably growing a vagina at the back of a character s knee or giving a game account of acts of decapit Will Self s first proper novel is about as rude, unruly, and raucously loquacious as one would come to expect from the writer who likes to decorate every page with trinkets of unfamiliar locution, who has a penchant for endless slithers of alliteration, who will take the time to describe the hairs in a hobo s nose with great detail and zest, and who will shock your puritan sensibilities by inexplicably growing a vagina at the back of a character s knee or giving a game account of acts of decapitation and necrophilia.That last bit is the pa...

    A truly ghastly experience, My Idea of Fun records the memories, justifications and sheer relish of a delusional maniac, serial killer, animal torturer and all around repulsive fellow, couched in prose so purple it s no longer a part of the visible spectrum As the protagonist s predilections are presented on the first page, you can t say you didn t know what you were getting into Against the chidings of my conscience I continued reading, fascinated, much as you can t not look at a grisly autom A truly ghastly experience, My Idea of Fun records the memories, justifications and sheer relish of a delusional maniac, serial killer, animal torturer and all around repulsive fellow, couched in prose so purple it s no longer a part of the visible spectrum As the protagonist s predilections are presented on the first page, you can t say you didn t know what you were getting int...

    The best way I can describe or categorize this book is by saying it s magical realism with the magic being of the nightmarish type A very black comedy of sorts, it wildly strays between consciousness and unconsciousness in the vaguely linear life of Ian Wharton It will confuse yo...

    Will Self has been likened to Martin Amis, and although this is the only book I ve read by Self, I can see the comparison The characters are people you might avoid in real life or be manipulated by them What makes...

    In a way you have to take this as a kind of fantasy Ian Wharton could have any number of variations of mental illness and The Fat Controller could be an hallucination or could indeed be The Devil You are sad for this boy Ian as he grows up, painfully awkward without a father and pity him his social climbing but distant mother and wonder where his relationship with The Fat Controller aka Mr Broadhurst Samuel Northcliffe is going You wonder a lot about The Fat Controller too and Ian s Eideti In a way you have to take this as a kind of fantasy Ian Wharton could have any number of variations of mental illness and The Fat Controller could be an hallucination or could indeed be The Devil You are sad for this boy Ian as he grows up, painfully awkward without a father and pity him his social climbing but distant mother and wonder where his relationship with The Fat Controller aka Mr Broadhurst Samuel Northcliffe is going You wonder a lot about The Fat Controller too and Ian s Eidetic memory and whether there is magic in...

    My favorite Bildungsroman ever, My Idea of Fun is a sort of Great Expectations for the crack generation My Idea of Fun is ostensibly about Ian, and his life as a tool of the Fat Controller However, everything in this book is deeply metaphorical Like thepsychedelic works of late period Burroughs and Alan Gullette, the book is best read sideways, allowing the scenes that are created to first manifest before attempting to decrypt their true meaning This is mind bending stuff, and no My favorite Bildungsroman ever, ...

    Imagine Charles Dickens basing Miss Havisham on Aleister Crowley, and Pip on an Eidetic Marquis de Sade, and you might get some idea of what this disturbing and provocative cautionary bildungsroman is like It Pre empts Palahniuk s themes, in Fight Club, of the deleterious effects of modern science, high tech, capitalism and materialism, that ruptures the self, leaving us unable to clarify the ambiguities of fantastical hallucinations, and banal reality Not everyone s idea of fun, but it certai Imagine Charles Dickens basing Miss Havisham on Aleister Crow...

    One of the best books I ve ever read The story is just wild, the characters are great, and I always get the feeling Will Self is the kind of dude who keys people s cars.

    I ve been prompted to write a review for this by the number of 1 star reviews I have seen.This is one of my favourite books ever However, before you read this book there are a number of provisos to consider There are things that I believe about literature Also note, not all of these may apply directly to this particular book, as I would be giving away too much if they did Finally, the provisos will sit under a spoiler alert at the end of the review, but are intended to be read at this point I ve been prompted to write a review for this by the number of 1 star reviews I have seen.This is one of my favourite books ever However, before you read this book there are a number of provisos to consider There are things that I believe about literature Also note, not all of these may apply directly to this particular book, as I would be giving away too much if they did Finally, the provisos will sit under a spoiler alert at the end of the review, but are intended...
