PDF/EPUB William Gaddis ☆ The Recognitions MOBI ð ☆

The book Jonathan Franzen dubbed the ur text of postwar fiction and the first great cultural critique which even if Heller and Pynchon hadn't read it while composing Catch 22 and V managed to anticipate the spirit of both”— The Recognitions is a masterwork about art and forgery and the increasingly thin line between the counterfeit and the fake Gaddis anticipates by almost half a century the crisis of reality that we currently face where the real and the virtual are combining in alarming ways and the sources of legitimacy and power are often obscure to us

    See the face on the book cover? That is my face now as I finish this book That was my face every step of the wayI heard somewhere while reading this that Gaddis is praised for this work in that he made it the ultimate challenge for the reader Yay Let's make reading hard sarcasmYou know how you might read a book with 5 storylines that will change each chapter It might be a bit confusing but at least chapter breaks give you the chance to regroup This book frequently mixes many storylines changing paragraph to paragraph with no break it is up to you to figure out which one is going on To add to this there are no quotation marks for dialogue good luck figuring out who is talkingIn response to one of my updates while reading this someone posted an article about this book I am too exhausted from this book right now to find the article and directly quote it but if you Google Why are large painful books considered classics? and you will find it The gist of it is that people tend to rate these books highly because they are rating their accomplishment of finishing a chunky tome and not necessarily the quality of said tome I can definitely see that being the case with The RecognitionsAnother thing that I read was that the book was not well received at first but then it started getting accolades later on because of its complexity and difficulty to read I am not sure why that is a good thing but it was enough for it to become a staple on many must read before you die listsSummary I am glad this is over I only recommend it if you like difficult and painful reading experiences or so you can check another book off a list
