"Very, very interesting... I loved every paragraph, every chapter.... next to some of my French reading of LF Celine and my German E. Juenger, next to some novels by H Covington, I consider [this] book already a "classic""

this book is like that: the story is nothing short of ordinary. but set in a dysfunctional world, 30 years ahead, it has all the components of a first rate nightmare. you'll agree with the author that something should have been done, but sadly wasnt, because people conformed to the increasingly PC zeitgeist as long as they could get on with their lives. this gradual slippage (in values, common sense, quality, IQ, etc) resulted a few decades later, in the hardcover nightmare we're reviewing here. Kurtagic wrote an intense apocalyptic work of orwelian dimensions and 'Mister' stands as a warning bell to people who are intelligent enough to stand up for their quality of life and that of their community (not just theirs, as individuals). this is the mistake our protagonist did and realised too late, despite his higher than average IQ: he let his community down by not having a progeny and while birthrate took its course, he's now a persecuted minority. how did it come to this?Read more ›
I got my copy through interlibrary loan, from clear across the country (USA). Because of its political slant, I suspect, this is not an item that's right out there where anyone will find it, which is why I was attracted, along with the good reviews.
What's positive is that Mister gives an all-too-plausible - if slightly exaggerated, for comic effect - close-up look at life in our near future, after the multicultural bolshevik police state has finished locking down its grip on the world. The long interrogation scene near the end rings especially, and grimly true. I was made to laugh a fair number of times - by the black humor, appealing to my sense of innate superiority over the dumbed-down, lumpen communist horde.
However, for my taste, the protagonist's endlessly frustrating experiences with all the stupidity and social decomposition were a bit overdrawn. You get the point after a while, sometimes you chuckle, but it just goes on and on.
Two aspects of the foundational snobbishness didn't appeal to me. The main character's persona consisted too fully of an extreme and fastidious intellectual preeminence. Qualities of the heart would have made him more compelling and believable. These features occurred only external to the main character, and in a negative sense - through the barbaric filth and savagery on the streets, and in the bureaucratic fiendishness fueling the whole system.
On a similar note, the protagonist's relationship with his wife was so perfect and unblemished it came across as almost a caricature of the ideal, Aryan genetic pair.Read more ›
