    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBLike the antihero of Werner Herzog’s masterwork Fitzcarraldo the narrator of Ballard’s novel is a semi cracked basket case with an insane dream and an insane level of stamina and persistence In Fitzcarraldo the mission is to build an opera house for the Peruvian people through hauling a ship over a mountain to scout for rubber In Ballard rogue doctor Mallory seeks to forge a river to rival the buried waters of the Sahara and bring fresh water to the parched basin of the Central African Republic Using a corrupt Captain’s ship replete with limosuine and with the help of a teenage native Mallory’s obstacles include frequent helicopter fire a rabid guerilla group a purblind documentary filmmaker an Indian naturist a strange brothel ship madamed by a former lover and his own diseased lust for the underage girl The astonishin

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUB “Sooner or later everything turns into television” JG Ballard The Day of CreationA hypnotic and dreamy parable or perhaps a freakish and hallucenegenic and moody allegory 'The Day of Creation' drifts along with Ballard's beautiful sometimes absurdly quirky prose I've read roughly eight of his novels or and I've yet to be disappointed really in any of them The book is slippery It isn't really plot driven I guess all river novels have some direction and plot to them Think of some strange combination of Conrad's 'Heart of Darkness' Twain's 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' the 'African Queen' Burton's 'The Source of the Nile' etc all

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBI'm not sure if I'm being entirely fair in my 3 star rating of this book I think I've hit my Ballard saturation point I've read about 80% of his work and every time I read something new I feel like it's simply Ballard not particularly different from the Ballard I've read before I do feel that Ballard's narratives aren't tremendously strong and that his strength lies in his ideas which may have been or less played out by the time he wrote this one

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBWhile it hasn't the wholly transgressive and mind bending appeal of the classic Atrocity Exhibition or Crash this Ballard offering is unique of the novels of his that I have read eight or so of them now in its balance of realism and imagination In fact it seemed to me to be an extende

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBWhen I read ‘Rushing to Paradise’ the other month I think I said that Ballard had managed to create a good sense of place away from his normal Shepperton stamping patch But even though ‘The Day of Creation’ has an African setting that sense of place is sadly lacking Indeed it is so vague as to be almost dream like and that the whole thing is a dream is an interpretation Ballard positively invites Although bearing in mind that Ballard also wrote the likes of ‘The Atrocity Exhibition’ this is a far lucid dream However that dream quality means that it isn’t a particularly compulsive read almost drifting by the readerA young doctor discovers then tries to destroy a river in Central Africa No reading of Ballard is ever wasted but he wrote better novels

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBJG Ballard was a giant of speculative fiction His feral visions of futures in decay were a tremendously influential perspective on what had all too often been an unreflectively triumphalist literature After encountering works like High Rise The Terminal Beach The Drowned World The Crystal World The Atrocity Exhibition and of course Crash it becomes much difficult to accept wide eyed technological utopias without at least a degree of skepticism His books take hold of the mind and won't let go like the dried black green algal bloom adhering to the sides of an empty swimming pool in the courtyard of the last Martian hotelI think it may be telling that my most memorable B

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBBallard writes ugly novels filled with ugly characters and stories that reflect his disgust for humanity Part of me agrees with him when I see the ugliness of the current state of American politics with the rise of the racist fascist right and the regressive stupidi

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBSPOILERS AHEAD Once I realized what THE DAY OF CREATION was “about” I was a little surprised it took me so long to get there I mean it's right in the damn title But I got about halfway through the book before it occurred to me the whole thing is an allegory for the creative process There’s Mallory at a dry lake bed in an town nearly devoid of people He wants to fill the lake bed but what exactly he's doing about it is a little unclear He's inert not doing much of anything really There is however two guerrilla armies fighting each other and threatening to kill him from time to time These warring factions seem to be far too interested in him as well Like what are they fighting about and why do they keep

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBThis is a fever dream high within Joseph Conrad and post colonial distress It is full of the incredibly surreal reminding me of The Electric Dream Company than Crash in that it meanders through a half hearted quest to find the source of the new river getting lost stuck in dream like scenarios reflecting the true heart of the callous creator and his lascivious vision of a new Nile One of my favorite scenes is the protagonist who has been naked for some time on the river dodging rebels and pursuing an underage girl gets covered in talc making him white than his whiteness There is also this longing sense that perhaps the new river doesn't exist that infects the whole story Worth your time

    The Day of Creation ePUB Ò The Day Kindle - creation pdf, The Day epub, The Day of Creation PDF/EPUBThis is not my favorite of Ballard's novels the narrator's obsession with an underage girl is just a little bit too unsettling for me in the long run but overall this is yet another excellent story of Ballardian obsession in a strange beautiful world that seems to be just a slight misstep away from our own
