CHARACTERS í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Martin Amis Father and meticulously plots the seduction of a girl named Rachel a girl who sorely tests the mettle of his cynicism when he finds himself falling in love with he. I've given up trying to defend Martin Amis books I tend to agree with every criticism that people offer but to me they've missed the point He's so wonderful to read because he has technical mastery than any writer of the last fifty years that I've read He can make his prose and conseuently his characters do absolutely anything he likesAs this is his first novel the pyrotechnics are somewhat muted making it probably one of his accessible novels He has focused a bit on characterisation creating Charles Highway who can stand as the eual of any of the unpleasant young men of literature in my opinion He's at once detestable and forgivable and he's instantly recognisable to anyone who's ever anticipated the sexual act with eual measures of dread and excitement or felt an odd pleasure at coughing up a livid green lump of mucusIf you've never read Martin Amis or wondered what goes on in the head of self involved young men this is a good place to start

Vacca’s Complaint I am inconsolably jealous when I consider that Martin Amis published his first book at 24 and had actually done the writing at least a year before also I am disgusted with how much talent and confidence the bastard already had at my age Here I am approaching my first uarter of a century and I have no first novel I have no fame I’m not deflecting pertinent uestions from feminist reviewers by flirting with them I have accomplished nothing with my life Nothing The Rachel Papers Martins Amis’ debut novel is a snide and rude bildungsroman about an insufferably pretentious and over articulate git named Charlie Highway who in the final hours before making that magical transformation into a twenty year old proceeds to ruminate over the past three months and his brief romance—his first experiences with love—with a posh bird named Rachel The exact and expansive details of the relationship have been obsessively complied in a series of documents Charlie collects material and produces portfolios for all the women in his life called you guessed it the Rachel Papers Over the course of this playfully metafictional novel the reader gets to learn firsthand all of Charlie’s overbearing opinions on sex literature classism youth aging zits self loathing farts art music and poetry and all of this is further compounded by his snarky resentment for the entirety of the adult world by which I mean his carelessly cruel and cavalier father This book is by no means a great book but there is no denying the deep well of talent Amis is working with as he convincingly gives voice to his wannabe academic of a teenage boy Yes Rachel’s portrayal is as thin as the paper on which she is deconstructed in excess by Charlie who is very much a crude and shallow narrator The Rachel Papers is a genuinely funny and cynical look at youth and childish notions of love and how most young people don’t really have shit to say about anything meaningful Apologies Holden and whateveryournamesare in John Green’s novels

The Rachel PapersEr to sniffle and lust his way through the pages of contemporary fiction On the brink of twenty Charles High way preps desultorily for Oxford cheerfully loathes his. If Philip Roth is correct and life is misunderstanding people then I remain awed by the riddle which is Martin Amis His first novel The Rachel Papers injects self awareness into satire leaking a fecund foam which changes everything about how we regard the way we live now The insecurity of adolescence is illustrated by our protagonist one Charles Highway who diagrams said angst and provides cross references from the literary canon One can imagine the reader or protagonsit saying bugger Holden Caulfield then recognizing that Highway has likely compiled a list of ten reasons as to his superiority over Mr Caulfield During a lazy gap year Charles writes drinks and woos the titular Rachel Life doesn't meet his precis Plans have to change Matters become a little Meta and we are left a little uncertain about what is actual and what is fictive This is one of the most hilarious novels I've read Numerous passages left me almost convulsing with laughter
