    One thought on “Artificial Snow

    1. Sara

      Young, apparently irresistible Frenchman wanders around rainy streets of Paris, sleeping with lots of women and pining over a lost love. While doing this he miraculously hits upon the philosophical connection between sex and death and tells us that Santa's red costume was really an invention of Coca Cola. Apparently "nobody knows that." Author, whose jacket photo is the size and style an eighties soap actor headshot, makes witty cameos as narrator's friend. I read the whole thing. I am sad and n [...]

      Vide. C'est ce que j'ai pensé tout le long de ma lecture mais j'ai quand même continué sans trop savoir pourquoi, j'aime bien le style d'écriture et puis je me demandais naïvement si un soudain quelque chose allait arriver. Vide.

      "I sometimes discovered relics of hope embedded in me like fossils in ancient stone, an odd collection of elements that everything seemed to repudiate." "My moral decline was beautiful, since it hadn't taken me away from her for too long; beautiful, because beauty is never what you head towards, but what you come back to." "I belong to the generation of assassins. Of those who, come spring, have forgotten why they should feel emotion."These are just a sampling of the sentences I loved from Flori [...]

      Expect probable spelling errors: I am sitting on the train with sweat dripping down my forehead. I have just been to the gym for the first time after six months of drinking a lot of beer and eating far too much crap. I'm in the worst physical state of my life but already I'm debating what beer to drink when I get to the pub later and what to order from the Indian. Fuck it. I loved this book. Zeller's writing reminds me a lot of my own thought processes and at just 22 when Artificial Snow was fir [...]

      One of the pitfalls of reading literature in translation is that some authors see their work, if they see it all, come to the English language in a chronology all of their own. Artificial Snow (2002) was Florian Zeller’s debut novel, but it’s the last of his four to be translated and published. Reading his book, therefore, has almost been an exercise in regression. Having started with the mature and satisfying, The Fascination Of Evil, we now find ourselves back when the author, in his early [...]

      Ce roman m'a convaincu que je ne devrais jamais acheter le bouquin d'un auteur seulement parce que je trouve sa femme (Marine Delterme) incroyablement belle et très talentueuse comme sculptrice. Un roman complètement vide, stérile, répétitif et ennuyeux. J'ai lu jusqu’à la page 80 et je ne pouvais plus, ce qui ne m'arrive pas souvent. Aucun intérêt pour moi.

      I started out being enthralled by this book, the narrators stark portrayal of the meaninglessness of life. However I found the book empty, and I wanted him to spend more time embellishing on those sections of negative thoughts. Sadly I think this book was too short and too all over the place for someone to really enjoy.

      Post-breakup misogyny and nihilism. Philosophically ambitious, somewhat autobiographical? about a violently forlorn, jilted lover.

    9. Daniel Parsons

      I related to this. A lot. Which probably speaks volumes about my state of mind at the moment. Review soon.

      A lire quand on a pas le moral pendant les fêtes, désarmant, bien construit, la couverture parle d'elle même.
