Me and Tome I have a reputation on goodreads for being hyper intelligent indulging in reading difficult novels It s a reputation I like to nurture It s been many years of failure in factBack in college daze I was at the check out desk of the smuckerjamjelly library and this friend of mine comes in fresh out of one of his Englishmajor classes This is one of those rare birds on college campuses an intellectual who actually gave a damn about getting an education beyond mere jobtraining He came up to me all thumbs up saying Pynchon is where it s at That was a strong enough argument and I ve been failing to read Pynchon for many years now Well I mean right up to 2009 when I read Inherent ViceIn short order I gather d together V Lot 49 and gravity s rainbow courtesy of one of those use d bookshops I hung out at hipster Lot 49 I read twice and didn t see too much to make a fuss about I read V with what I recall from today s pointofview as zero understanding except the nose job chapter and at least once reading it at dipco with a couple rounds of sam adams at the bar looking like a real Pynchon hipster before I used the word hipster like this in a self deprecating manner Well whatever the hell that was I mean V I still have that same Bantam edition A few short years later I believe following on the heels of reading IJ I started into gravity s rainbow and said Ah Yes I get it This is fantastic and I have no idea what s going on But so I only got about 23 through what is today simply call d GR due to some non literary distractions Still haven t gotten back to itMeanwhile Mason and Dixon was published and I got one of those hotoffthepresses exemplaren Over the course of several highly distractive months I read the words on its pages I recall a few nice things like presidents getting high big rounds of cheese a mechanical duck snowballs chance in hell of me understanding it But anyway I even bought a copy for a friend of mine who taught English or was it History Anyways total failure Then I bought a copy of Against the Day also hot off the presses In fact it may have been my first PREorder I order d it before I order d it It sat beautifully on my dresser for approximately three years meanwhile somewhere along the line I placed one of those ubiuitous used copies of Vineland and probably Slow Learner on my shelf Preorder d Inherent Vice in 2009 received it in the Post read it and Pynchonianshape d light bulbs began to light up in my meager brain I GET IT NOW I sail d through Against the Day at speeds airships can only fantasize about I dove uickly into Vineland thankful that I hadn t read it in 1990 with all the other post GR Disappoint d I was a slow learner but I read that one too I mean by this time of course I was well and deep into Encyclopedic Novel Territory ENT space having enter d via IJ SotWeed and The Don of uixote Now here I stood looking forward to what I ve come to think of as Type II PYNCHON Lot 49 Vineland IV Those PynchonLite volumes What I want d from Bleeding Edge was some of that Lite Tome That s what it is And I m a Pynchon FANBOY So whatever I ll read it I read it Here I am See I m a DFW FANBOY too And but I ve move d on see I ll read everything that says DFW but mostly I ve moved onto fanning other flames With Tome too I ve moved on but in the case of Tome I ve move d on by moving backwards 2014 I need to retrace my steps from V through GR to MD to make up for that failure I mention d up there above Read Bleeding Edge don t be disappoint d take the ride with Maxine It s still Tome And something about the world feels different today

Bleeding Edge summary Ê eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Thomas Pynchon ë 8 characters free download Î eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ë Thomas Pynchon Estamos en Nueva York en 2001 durante el periodo de calma ue transcurrió entre el desmoronamiento del boom de las puntocom y los terribles sucesos del 11 de Septiembre Silicon Alley es una ciudad fantasma la web 10 está en plena edad del pavo Google todavía no ha salido a Bolsa y a Microsoft aún se la considera el Imperio del Mal Es posible ue ya no corra tanto dinero como en el momento ?. Real ish Review Dwell upon our memories but there are no factsMental note to self next time you read a book but you can t post a review for a couple of months why don t you try writing the fucking review soon after you read the book and not wait till the day before the book is to be published Just a thought stupid Whenever I hear the word culture I reach for my revolver attributed to GoeringThe re occurrence of this line in the book for some reason sums up the book for me I m not sure what that says about the book though But every time I think of the book this what I think Maxine reached for her revolverTwo months and change I ve had to write this review I just haven t been able to do it Oh yeah I m supposed to mention that I got this book for free from either Netgalley the publisher author or through some other way that I get books to read before they are published Apparently it s a federal law to mention this for reals and not just a cheap reason to float the shit out of my reviews I haven t been given any monies nor have I been coerced in anyway to write the review you just read HuzzahExcept for my screaming teen novelty review of Gravity s Rainbow I ve never reviewed Pynchon before I ve only grudgingly ever reviewed DFW before It was a dare I wouldn t have written about Infinite Jest otherwiseI don t like to write reviews for my favorites Fuck yous are so much easier Song number one is not a fuck you song we ll save that that thought for later on You want to know if there s something wrong You want to know what it all means It s nothingWhere to startFirst this is minor Pynchon I m expecting that there is never going to be another major Pynchon novel I hope that I m wrong but this is the Pynchon who gave us Vineland and Inherent Vice It s not the Gravity s Rainbow Against the Day Pynchon Not that they are really separate people or that there is a massive difference in uality between the two but there is something un massive about some of his works This is one of those booksI kind of like them when they feel all encompassing In a way I d best sum up this book as a accessible version of Crying of Lot 49 one written by an older writer who no longer feels the need to confuse and obscure at almost every turn It s got the same sort of female protagonist She is caught up in the churning of events outside of her immediate control She is sometimes just floating through the events taking place than actively controlling her own destiny but in Pynchon s world is anyone really in control While the work is straight forward than some of his other books it s still filled with the slap stick absurdity paranoia conspiracies and screw ball characters that categorize Pynchon s work or at least to me It s got all the good stuff and a style of writing that will undoubtedly piss off that person at the New York Times Second this is a early 2000 s novel of New York City You know dot come bubble burst and collapsing buildings Do you think there is room for some conspiracy riffing in those events Third are you looking to see Pynchon really skewer the internet Maybe you ll read the book differently than me but that skewering doesn t happen It s shitty and it s good It s filled with villains and people futility trying to do good and create spaces outside of commerce It s got Utopian dreams and unrelenting greed But mostly it s just a bleeding edge technology being created without the realization of what the technology can or will actually be used for I guess one could say that the interwebs are sort of the rockets in this book a technology everyone is scrambling around and which will ultimately change the world but is it the technology itself or just human nature that is really at play here Just to say evil Islamics did it that s so lame and we know it We see those official close ups on the screen The shifty liar s look the twelve stepper s gleam in the eye One look at these faces and we know they re guilty of the worst crimes we can imagine But who s in any hurry to imagine To make the awful connection Any than Germans were back in 1933 when Nazis torched Reichstag within a month of Hitler becoming chancellor Which of course is not to suggest that Bush and his people have actually gone out and staged the events of 11 September It would take a mind hopelessly diseased with paranoia indeed a screamingly anti American nutcase even to allow to cross her mind the possibility that that terrible day would have deliberately been engineered as a pretext to impose some endless Orwellian war and the emergency decrees we will soon be living under Nah nah perish that thought But there s still always the other thing Our yearning Our deep need for it to be true Somewhere down at some shameful dark recess of the national soul we need to feel betrayed even guilty As if it was us who created Bush and his gang Cheney and Rove and Rumsfeld and Feith and the rest of them we who called down the sacred lightning of democracy and then the fascist majority on the Supreme Court threw the switches and Bush rose from the slab and began his rampage And whatever happened then is on our ticketThe word zeitgeist may make you reach for your own revolver but that s what this novel has succeeded in capturing It s uite successful at capturing New York in the early oughts The novel feels like the New York I first moved to Maybe it s that Pynchon captures so many minor and fairly inconseuential details of the city that makes his feel like a success It felt like Pynchon had been walking among us back then that it s uite possible he was that weird old guy who was also at some dive bar that had some Minor Threat blasting out of a Jukebox or passing through neighborhoods that still stand but no longer have any of the same feelings about them Trudging down that awful hallway that connects Times Suare with Port Authority telling you to abandon all hope I think of the media shy Pynchon as someone apart from the world like Saligner hiding in his New Hampshire cabin but he was really a guy living on the Upper West Side who walked his kids to school and apparently also did a lot of other things in the city When people don t know what you look like you can be the most reclusive media shy writer in the world and never have to lock yourself indoors except when you get ambushed walking your kid to school one day Windust seem to think it s a date he is done up otherwise inexplicably in somebody s idea of hipster gear jeans vintage sharkskin sport coat Purple Drank T shirt enough dress code violations to get him thrown off the L trainI feel like I should be giving thoughts instead of just some vague and general impressions but my shitty mind has nothing to analyze Nothing to offer as criticism Nothing but faint memories of the book it s pitiful how uickly my wind cleans itself of so many details On some obscenely hot and humid July afternoon I should have jotted something down and given a review that would have said but even then I couldn t think of what to really say about this novel It wasn t just laziness I enjoy Pychon I guess it can make me feel smart but I mostly just get a pure enjoyment out of his books I enjoy the dumb humor and the crazy conspiracies The paranoia The wonderfully bizarre characters I m sure other people will write much much much better reviews talking about how he succeeded or failed with the brainy stuff For many people especially in New York laughing is a way of being loud without having to say anythingWhat was here before the book was releasedFuck yeah I have the best best friend everReal Review coming 91713
