Germans have left, it s about Potok, and his search for meaning to his life in this new style of country Except he searches for meaning by running dodgy trades with the Far East, drinking too much, taking a truck load of hallucinogens, and then talking to his friends about the ridiculous dreams he has After the first few pages of the novel, when he s aware of the Germans being shipped off, the dreams are really the only hint that any of the characters have any kind of social conscience, but the trip they take to Auschwitz in one of these dreams is painfully done and heavy handed It also lasts for ever.In the second part of the book, the business is destroyed and Potok finds his Sister soulmate, an ex club singer hooker, and they escape to the country only to be followed by shadowy forces They may or may not have murdered someone, by then the narrative is so continuous between Potok s paranoia and an actual story, that I found it impossible to tell what was actually happening and what was only occurring in his cloudy brain Eventually though, his drinking leads to his loss of Sister, and he runs away and spends time on a farm, on a dump, and eventually back in the City, where he meets up with some of his old friends and finds they re just as messed up as he is.There s some social commentary, the most interesting being the various attempts at Capitalism and Westernisation that both Potok and his friends and others attempt throughout the book The use of culture as a driving force for change is also in there.But really, I was baffled by this book Maybe the translation is clunky I can t imagine reading Trainspotting in French, for example The use of English was bizarre and occasionally inpenetrable, and a lot of the action left me confused and cold I m not a fan of stream of consciousness style writing, and found myself drifting away from the text frequently It s interesting that another reviewer wayversed in literature than I am says that the final 200 pages of the 500 page tome are an endurance test, yet still gives it 5 stars He also recommends dipping in and out of this book at random, but my 1001 book list Aspergers won t let me do that.In the end, I was very glad to put this one down I am not good at doing reviews Either I like a book, or I don t, but usually I can t really say why Sometimes when I hate a book enough, I do have something to say about it though This is one of those books.Seriously, wtf I have no idea what I just read, and I absolutely do not understand how this ended up on Boxall s 1001 list Most of the book seemed like a messy dream sequence or bad trip, and the parts that did make sense were just disturbing Normal punctuation would have been nice too I am not good at doing reviews Either I like a book,
