    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubHow do the dead live? Well they don't go to heaven where the angels fly and they don't go to the lake of fire and fry on the 4th of July What they do do is move to a different suburb or a different part of the city living and working alongside the living for the rest of eternity This horrifyingly mundane vision of the afterlife plays as the central conceit of Will Self's superlative sputtering third novel allowing its narrator Lily Bloom to die agonizingly from cancer and then stick around for a decade of stewing in her own rage and disappointment And Lilly has a lot that disappoints her her two letdown daughters two failed marriages a cold American upbringing her own slow and inescapable weight gain her feelings of being shafted out of the sexual revolution of the 60's the va

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubI thought they were kidding but you really do need a thesaurus to read Will Self's writing There's a great story in here somewhere but it's lost amid his self conscious effort to show you just how smart he is

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubWow That was horrible Visceral cruel obnoxious But somehow utterly compelling hilarious and life affirming My previous contact with Will Self was from TV and I guess I expected something Amis like and less enthralling How the Dead Live is about Lily Bloom a chronicle of her late life her death and her afterlife Her major accomplishments in a rather avera

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubDefinitely not my favorite Self novel He usually has a certain understated brilliance that exudes from his work; however I found this one terribly difficult to get into and then once it hit its stride it was rather prosaic and dull Interesting premise that unfortunately has been done in a better manner by some other authors Luckily Self still has two other older works that sound phenomenal This wasn’t among my favorites

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubYou're always going to have at least an unusual plot line setting or protagonist in a Self novel and this is no exception You're told the story of Lily Bloom as she sees it in life death and rebirth I often feel with Will Self that there is something brilliant he is working at but he just misses pulling it off flawlessly That isn't to say he isn't worth reading He definitely is and his use of language even when he stumbles a bit is beautiful I couldn't put out of my mind how much this is based on his mother's and in turn his life I think that made it a bit poignant to me and perhaps made it easier to like Lily flaws and all However I think that there is something about Lily and her story

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubI'm not uite sure how I feel about this book I didn't have to force myself to finish it but I was eager to be done because I didn't like spending time with Lilly Bloom alive or dead The story is told by Lilly Bloom who is dying then dead from breast cancer Will Self said that the story is based on the Tibetan Book of the Dead and as a Buddhist I find the story believable Lilly dies of cancer and after death is ushered into her life as a dead person by Phar Lap Jones an Aborigine from Australia who wears cowboy boots jeans mirror sun glasses and a big white Stetson She is accompanied in death by Lithy the lithopedion a calcified foetus that fell out of her uterus upon her death and now sings pop songs from the 70s 80 and 90s Rude Boy her son who was hit by a car and age 9 and now runs around swearing at people and waving his penis and the Fats the eyeless blobs of fat t

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubA vast ichor black death exhalation across the latter 20th century Self's patter his puns and asides and alliteration and word transformations and endless allusions to everything from lit to pop songs sets up a deceptive burble behind which his unyielding cynicism dances In fact though so than the Dantean story of the dull disappointment of life bleeding into the dull disappointment of death and beyond all locked in an endless cycle of drudge it seems this patter this banter seems to be Self's animating force About a third of it falls flat maybe a third or sails right past me unremarked and a third or so hits the mark but the sheer constancy of the voice and conversation gives it all a coh

    PDF Will Self ☆ How the Dead Live ePUB È How the PDF \ ☆ dead epub, live ebok, How the ebok, How the Dead Live EpubI think I'm a bit stupid for Will Self novels I really liked the underlying concepts of the book but this was a hard slog for me The passages from Christmas 2001 in italics I didn't really understand until at least two thirds of the way through It felt like it was about 100 pages too long I found myself skipping through the last few chapters as it didn't seem to be adding anything new to the story But overall the idea was an interesting and disturbing one I'll never pass Dalston without thinking Dulston again
