Blog but with much better insights and truth. Made me think a lot about my culture and view points, and the author is hilarious!
Reading this book brings to mind Orwell's "Down and Out in Paris and London", albeit with this work having a slightly lesser grade of prose. The arcs are similar, but the geography has changed. European landmarks are exchanged for fishing villages and killing fields. The boozy streets and smokey dives have a pharmaceutic-induced face-lift, reminiscent of "Fear and Loathing". But the setting and sidetrack adventures don't divert the reader from the underlying message. Whereas this book devotes its share of time to poverty and politics, ultimately it is a look at what society would be without social mores, how we act when driven by our reptilian brains, and the conflict that arises between our crumbling values and the id. At the very least, it is capable of prompting real value questions in the mind of the reader and introspection into the way our cultures conflict with the nature of our being.
