Reading? We all read text once in a time. I begin:
I been reading Audition by Ryu Murakami on a single breath today. It's a pretty short book, but it's good. The premise is as follows: A successful man in his fortys, Aoyama, loses his dilligent, faithful wife, Ryoko, and tries to get over that loss together with his son, Shigeo. Sounds simple? Not so fast cowboy. You thought that just because guy who wrote it is Japanese meant it wouldn't all be about Europe? You thought wrong.
So, let's say, hypothetically, a crazy girl acting as an angel with gorgeous beauty would drug you out of no reason, what your thoughts would be?
a) Signal the alarm, contact the authorities,
b) Moving out of town in fear,
c) Hire a bodyguard; Be more careful,
d) Go into delusion and try to find the girl to clear the misunderstanding.
I don't need to tell you which action is the right one. Everyone is in his grind mode, going to Germany and sleeping with some genious classical music artist until they lose their mind due to female of slightly more average looks and her vegana. A whole chapter dedicated to this scene explaining that maybe, MAYBE you gotta listen to a bro when he tells you that young twenty-something natural born killer might be not what it appears to be.
Yes, your bro created this plan with the audition thing just for you because he genuinely cares about you. Yoshikawa, he is a good man, and couldn't see you without a wife. To quote J.C. Denton from Far Cry 3: "He was a good man. What a rotten way to die."
In the metaphorical sense. The actual point of the book coming off pretty late. It's pretty dumb, so, I'll instead analyse the scenes perpetrating to Europe. The book includes so much things like luxury items, wine, and all, that you are wondering "Damn… My man f*cked up, his vocabulary was replaced by Luis Vuttion and Ferrari" but then, the classical music. Listen, I know you have to read at least synopsis when you shoot a documentary, but really? Who are those people and why didn't Ryu, my BROTHER in rice, namedrop Van Gogh at least once? I sense a missed opportunity: Now people will read the book and wonder if this thirdworlder in his Asia is even a modicum of cultured. He isn't. He is a incel hack which hates and simultaniously loves women. The duality of man: Not ready to suck cock, but forever far removed from women to point of no return…
Ah, also it's about difficult childhood. It's good. 8/10 in relatPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
