Drop City

Characters Û Drop City Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free It is 1970 and a down at the heels California commune devoted to peace free love and the simple life has decided to relocate to the last frontier the unforgiving landscape of interior Alaska in the ultimate expression of going back to the land Armed with the spirit. The evil side of the happy go lucky flower power unicorn rainbow time that wasn t as peaceful as one might supposeWhat if hippies weren t the friendly peace loving open minded tolerant etc great alternative to normal society but just as bad as normal people with the difference that they do as if they were sooo alternative and progressiveBuilding on this plot Boyle offers another splendid description of the bigotry and mendacity that grows in each society In this case it is interesting to see how good ideals can be perverted to let the conservative suppressing system seem better than anarchy chaos and too much freedom I could imagine this book as a great kick starter for complex philosophical political sociological etc discussions and of course debates because it does nothing else than confronting a liberal socialist dystopia with the standard mentality of this time and opening the endless epic political mentality A vs mentality B battle until boredom and sleep kick inAnd the great thing is that it all comes with subtext wit and strange happenings and no admonishing moral finger A wiki walk can be as refreshing to the mind as a walk through nature in this completely overrated real life outside books

Characters Û Drop City Ë PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free S everyone struggles with the bare essentials of life love nourishment and a roof over one’s head Rich allusive and unsentimental TC Boyle’s ninth novel is a tour de force infused with the lyricism and take no prisoners storytelling for which he is justly famou. This book is fuelled by flower power Sadly I prefer books which are run on rocket fuel so this one did not deliver enough blast for my buck This is the third TC Boyle book I ve read and although I keep meandering back for I m still yet to understand why Two tales make up the central thread of Drop City Like two parallel spinal cords they prop up the floppy central core of the book The first spine is the flacid soaked in acid hippy fuelled hurrah of Drop City Most of the people residing in the collection of yurts tree houses flop houses and tents are a fairly reprehensible group of individuals who have a mild work allergy and are so lazy they re happy to live in a green and pleasant land surrounded by their own chickpea laden bowel eruptions People When you are content to camp in fields of your own shit it is probably time to have a little word with yourselves By stark contrast the second spinal cord propping up the book is one of ice and iron The residents of Boynton Alaska are survivalist self sufficient and living off the skinny of the land Alaska has very little fat Life is hard and if you can catch it then you can stew it eat it or wear it Those who choose to live along the 30 mile river are spikier than snow shoes and harder than a frozen sliver of moose jerky You know at some point the peace and love lives of the dippy hippies of Drop City are going to collide entwine enmesh and embed in the peace but a lot less love filled lives of the trappers hunters and self sufficient men on the 30 mile but it is just a matter of waiting and maybe tie dying a few t shirts until the story ponderously climaxes The two parallel tales finally collide where and when you might imagine and hippy v trapper hijinx ensue The hippies generally come out of it all looking half arsed self absorbed and clueless Kind of inexplicable kind of predictable but still kind of readable

The collapse of the sixties free love movement is perhaps the greatest defeat Western society has endured The flower children believed in a world unshackled to government control and white collar slavery they believed in an autonomous collective of free love drugs and sex By listening to the Doors and smoking hash in Californian tepees they hoped to bring about a social revolution to overthrow the suares by doing nothing whatsoever Then again they only believed in this because their bourgeois parents had the misfortune to raise them in a time of plenty giving them the freedom to run off and party in multicoloured pants with a wad of hard earned notes in their tote bags I hate hippies Drop City has little sympathy for the hippie movement as it cocks a snook at the idle brothers and sisters whose goal was essentially to avoid work at all costs and puff on drug pipes Nowadays hippies are known as PhD or liberal arts students and the drug consumption remains the same Centring on a large cast of caricatured free lovers Boyle s detached narrative style has the surgical cynicism and breathless rush of Foster Wallace with the compassionate satire of Kingsley Amis Although his narrator goes a sentence or three too far with each description he hits a note of buzzy mania perfect for the vibrant rush of the era though obviously uite infuriating in its excessAs the commune based on this real commune in southern Colorado battles nasty Nam dropouts and a planned council demolition the group hotfoot it to Alaska where they take refuge in their iced out bus and numerous well insulated shacks Star the least loose of the women is somewhat the centre of the novel though Boyle s narrator is of your top down move the marionettes model less personally committed and little genuine empathy is achieved for any of these freeloaders and grizzly weirdoes It s a fun ride regardless
