Sensation

Sensation When Julia Hernandez leaves her husband, shoots a real estate developer, and then vanishes without a trace, she slips out of the world she knew and into the Simulacrum a place where human history is both guided and thwarted by the conflict between a species of anarchist wasps and a collective of hyperintelligent spiders When Julia s ex husband Raymond spots her in a grocery store he doesn t usually patronize, he s soon drawn into an underworld of radical political gestures where Julia is the new media sensation of both this world and the Simulacrum Told ultimately from the collective point of view of another species, this allegorical novel plays with the elements of the Simulacrum apparent in real life media reports, business speak, blog entries, text messages, psychological evaluation forms, and the lies lovers tell one another and poses a fascinating idea that displaces human beings from the center of the universe and makes them simply the pawns of two warring species.

    You know that moment in the midst of a book when you blink, take a mental step back, and think, What in the hell am I reading This happened quite early on in Sensation and the feeling persisted I picked it off the shelf in the library and was attracted by the concept of a civil war between anarchist wasps and a collective of hyper intelligent spiders I was expecting some Grant Morrison or Steve Aylett type weirdness and hoping the whole thing would be told from spider and wasp points You know that moment in the midst of a book when you blink, take a mental step back, a...

    I have been told that insulting Brian Keene and Nick Mamatas would lead to fame and fortune as an indie writer, and I read some of Brian Keene s work and was crushed to discover that I have little to insult him over I mean, I could, but that would be all petty, and we know I m NEVER petty, right But here, despite my being retired and hopelessly unmarketable, HERE is my ticket to fame and fortune as a writer For in this very fine month, I have finally picked up a Mamatas title, Sensation, and I I have been told that insulting Brian Keene and Nick Mamatas would lead to fame and fortune as an indie writer, and I read some of Brian Keene s work and was crushed to discover that I have little to insult him over I mean, I could, but that would be all petty, and we know I m NEVER petty, right But here, despite my being retired and hopelessly unmarketable, HERE is my ticket to fame and fortune as a writer For in this very fine month, I have fina...

    There s a certain flavor of delight I feel when reading fiction that is smart, witty, cynical, and of the moment The stuff that makes me laugh while being discomfited Few works conjure this feeling for me books like Snow Crash, The Picture of Dorian Gray, parts of The Satanic Verses or Foucault s Pendulum There s the fun of being in on a joke that not everyone will get There s the pride of feeling like the author r...

    This is a fantastic, smart, engaging book, with polished writing It s also a complex story, involving shifting relationships and loyalties, and two additional sentient insect species in a long term struggle for survival, with humans as part of their battlefield The use of a first person plural we narrator throughout the book though with much of the work reading like third person narration adds another dimension, and a degree of uncertainty There are areas of ambiguity and uncertainty This is a fantastic, smart, engaging book, with polished writing It s also a complex story, involving shifting relationships and loyal...

    Tiresome and smug Wouldn t have finished it but I didn t have anything else to read while I was on jury duty.

    Political satire in which humans are tools in the war between parasitic wasps and spiders And internet culture becomes a prank revolt.
