    Set in a primitive future society and told in the imagined dialect of the time, involving malapropistic phoneticisms and accidental puns and clearly an inspiration for one story of Mitchell s Cloud Atlas , so not something you can read quickly at least, not till you get used to it This is the story of a would be story teller, trying to make sense of the present in the light of minimal understanding of the past, tied in with versions of 20th century Set in a primitive future society and told in the imagined dialect of the time, involving malapropistic phoneticisms and accidental puns a...

    Riddley Walker has clear precedents, such as the postmodern invented language of A Clockwork Orange and the post apocalyptic search for lost knowledge that drives A Canticle for Leibowitz, but Hoban s novel remains a singularly original work The language is the most striking thing about it, of course A pidgin mishmash of broken, phonetically spelled English and f...

    This is an already famous book, and the internet is full of reviews and dedicated websites, so there really is littleI feel needs to be said However, I think it is useful for any potential reader of this to get a sense of how easy it to read, how one grows rapidly used to the phonetics Also, for me, much of the brilliance of this novel can be found in the construction of individual paragraphs, and in the genius of it on the micro level, rather than in any discussion of the Big Themes Th This is an already famous book, and the internet is full of reviews and dedicated websites, so there really is littleI feel needs to be said However, I think it is useful for any potential reader of this to get a sense of how easy it to read, how one grows rapidly used to the phonetics Also, for me, much of the brilliance of this novel can be found in the construction...

    Whenever I feel that the field of writing has become a bit stale, a bit repetitive, or a bit clich Whenever originality seems beyond the horizon, or when I start to suspect that writers careabout writing as a job rather than as an art I Pick up my well worn copy of Riddley Walker Merely the act of scanning some of the pages in this book, infuses me with a new sense of vigor A new sense of hope Hope that it is possible for someone to write something so masterful and beautiful that Whenever I feel that the...
