Like the subtitle says, this book is a confession broken into three parts The main character, Rupert, is giving his side of the story in a court, what follows is a round about retelling of what happened along with his feelings and advice on all kinds of different topics What starts off as sounding like the voice of a sane and rational man begins to disintegrate as the monologue goes on Reading this right after The Seducer and The Conqueror gave a little bit of extra something to this book, th Like the subtitle says, this book is a confession broken into three parts The main character, Rupert, is giving his side of the story in a court, what follows is a round about retelling of what happened along with his feelings and advice on all kinds of different topics What starts off as sounding like the voice of a sane and rational man begins to disintegrate as the monologue goes on Reading this right after The Seducer and The Conqueror gave a little bit of extra something to this book, they complement each other well I think what I liked best about this novel though was how reading it made me feel like I was entering into the head of a few different people I know all at once It was like taking the little quirks of friend and co workers and playing out the rational behind why they do and say some of the baffling things they are known for I m not naming names here about who I felt like I was getting an inside the head ringside seat into their psyche, so maybe it is you who are reading this now, but probably not Damn, this was good. Deel 1 van de Steppoli tetralogie, inmiddels 15 jaar oud Interessant om te lezen zo direct na de lectuur van Peachez , waar Rupert een cameo in heeft Een paar keer heel hard moeten lachen het jong geweld zat toen nog duidelijk in Pfeijffers pen De grote stilist is nog in de dop, maar er staan toch ook al duizelingwekkend mooie zinnen in Een geflipte ode aan de liefde, een begeesterend spel met de realiteit, een blinde helletrip naar de waanzin. It is apparent nearly immediately that this is formally not so much a confession as a defense statement before a jury A tripartite peroration with frequent recourse to classical rhetorical devices the author is a sometime classical scholar , it increasingly reveals the speaker as a high functioning nutcase Veering between an ideal impotent, deluded love for a supposed girlfriend and a depraved contempt for former supposed girlfriends who are all given the names of famous Greek and Roman co It is apparent nearly immediately that this is formally not so much a confession as a defense statement before a jury A tripartite peroration with frequent recourse to classical rhetorical devices the author is a sometime classical scholar , it increasingly reveals the speaker as a high functioning nutcase Veering between an ideal impotent, deluded love for a supposed girlfriend and a depraved contempt for former supposed girlfriends who are all given the names of famous Greek and Roman courtesans the author s sly joke , Rupert s defense becomes an unwitting confession as offensive and disgusting as anything I ve read in a long while And yet I stayed with it to the end what s with that Zonder meer geweldig. Despite the extreme subject matter, the construct and overall narration is great I can t say I loved reading some of the vile stuff but it was wrapped around some sublime passages no doubt intentionally. Je kunt heel goed lezen dat dit echt een heel veel eerder geschreven is dan zijn laatste GHE Het raakte me niet zo erg als Peacez.
