  2. _Riddley Walker_ is the book that put Russell Hoban on the map inasmuch as he is on the map he is criminally neglected as an author and will likely be the one work for which he will be remembered sadly he passed away in late 2011 So far I have read three other Hoban novels and while I have thoroughly enjoyed all of them I must admit that I think this one is his very best Many, upon reading the first page, will dismiss the book as gimmicky I am growing to hate that term as applied to boo _Riddley Walker_ is the book that put Russell Hoban on the map inasmuch as he is on the map he is criminally neglected as an author and will likely be the one work for which he will be remembered sadly he passed away in late 2011 So far I have read three other Hoban novels and while I have thoroughly enjoyed all of them I must admit that I think this one is his very best Many, upon reading the first page, will dismiss the book as gimmicky I am growing to hate that term as applied to books due to the style in which Hoban writes Admittedly his language isn t easy to slip right into given that he has created his own broken, not quite phonetic, future version of English that is further complicated for many readers by being based on the ...

  5. Riddley Walker has clear precedents, such as the postmodern invented language of A Clockwork Orange and the post apocalyptic search for lost knowledge that drives A Canticle for Leibowitz, but Hoban s novel remains a singularly original work The language is the most striking thing about it, of course A pidgin mishmash of broken, phonetically spelled English and familiar words deconstructed and reconstructed, Riddley s language at first seems like an attention grabbing gimmick, but it is anythi Riddley Walker has clear precedents, such as the postmodern invented language of A Clockwork Orange and the post apocalyptic search for lost knowledge that drives A Canticle for Leibowitz, but Hoban s novel remains a singularly original work The language is the most striking thing about it, of course A pidgin mishmash of broken, phonetically spelled English and familiar words deconstructed and reconstructed, Riddley s language at first seems like an attention grabbing gimmick, but it is anything but It requires extra attention and thought on the part of the reader, but ultimately it leads to a muchimmersive experience than if the book were written in standard English There s a bit of Huck Finn in it, Pogo His Pals, and Cockney brogue It takes getting used to, but once you...

  6. I am not necessarily adverse to an author expanding his creative vision into an exploration of communicative styles Anthony Burgess brilliant A Clockwork Orange comes to mind Frank Herbert s Dune also developed a vocabulary to further develop his vision Stream of consciousness tales, though, tend to lose me Norman Mailer s Why Are We in Vietnam was a hot mess of syntax that left me gasping on the rails of my deep sea literary vessel, wanting the swells to die down some William Burroughs N I am not necessarily adverse to an author expanding his creative vision into an exploration of communicative styles Anthony Burgess brilliant A Clockwork Orange comes to mind Frank Herbert s Dune also developed a vocabulary to further develop his vision Stream of consciousness tales, though, tend to lose me Norman Mailer s Why Are We in Vietnam was a hot mess of syntax that left me gasping on the rails of my deep sea literary vessel, wanting the swells to die down some William Burroughs Naked Lunch was a thick as molasses alphabet soup of words, and vile to boot, lacking the quirky, gonzo charm of Hunter S Thompson Faulkner s The Sound and the Fury is a 900 page run on sentence that has eluded me and I have yet to scale that ascent And that leads to Riddley Walker, written entirely in a first person narrative in a language that resembles English, and I guess in a broad sense it still is, but is, to me at least, incomprehensible A...

  7. Set in a primitive future society and told in the imagined dialect of the time, involving malapropistic phoneticisms and accidental puns and clearly an inspiration for one story of Mitchell s Cloud Atlas , so not something you can read quickly at least, not till you get used to it This is the story of a would be story teller, trying to make sense of the present in the light of minimal understanding of the past, tied in with versions of 20th century Set in a primitive future society and told in the imagined dialect of the time, involving malapropistic phoneticisms and accidental puns and clearly an inspiration for one story of Mitchell s Cloud Atlas , so not something you can read quickly at least, not till you get used to it This is the story of a would be story teller, trying to make sense of the present in the light of minimal understanding of the past, tied in with versions of 20th century life history especially the atom bomb mixed traditional legends such as St Eustace Oddly, I found the slang in this based on mishearings of English harder than Russian based slang of Clockwork Orange , despite the fact I speak English but not Russian I think that is partly because Burgess is the better, or at leastcareful, writer, but also because the whole of ...
