The Drought review ↠ 103 read & download The Drought Violence erupts and insanity reigns as the human race struggles for survival in a worldwide desert of despa. As Maya noted when she was reading this there s a certain stodginess about the style a certain pre modern feeling at odds with the novel s future disaster premise but as Will Self notes in his afterword it s hard for that to really slow things up too much when the story is so full of mirage wavered portents and apocalyptic tableaus The strangest aspect though is not that tension but the general ellipticness of and hazyness of the storytelling the characters are inscrutable gamepieces tracing shapes through the dust which only they can read while the terms of the disaster are both world scale and nearly generational while constricted within a narrow stretch of land devoid of context after the basic setup All of which leaves this in the eerie space not of science fiction but of an unnerving and untranslatable dream Which should make it an absolute favorite I would think but there s also a receding uality about it we will never actually be able to follow the characters on their journey it s just too foreign and detached Again that sounds like something I d like And I do it just didn t completely click here But it s Ballard s first published novel I believe of many so I ll have plenty stabs at thisOh and like all of Ballard or so I hear societal collapse is never far off it only needs a little push Which is almost the most believable part

The Drought review ↠ 103 read & download The Drought Weird and mesmerizingly grotesue The Drought tells the chilling story of the world on the brink of extinctio. Like The Drowned World this early Ballard novel is visiting through fiction the experience of a world turned upside down that is described in Empire of the Sun Or to be slightly different applying the understanding that gave him and trying to share that with others through fiction You think you know the world says Ballard it looks familiar comprehensible yes Well now look at your picnic as I yank out the blanket from underneath it And as a reader one agrees given this one simple change how radically different our cosy little picnic has become Here it is not invading Japanese who overturn with casual indifference the apple cart of colonial Shanghai but a drought that drives society out of the familiar An unending drought causes the cities to become empty while the seashore becomes an encampment for the population working to produce fresh water rather than finding food which had been Ballard s boyhood experience in China In these earlier novels it is the familiar environment taken for granted which Ballard shows as treacherous later he shifts to portray human society as having through its own operations a natural tendency to dehumanise This is not though a book about the revolt of nature rather a revelation of the nakedness of the Emperor humanity does not apparently cause the drought for nature is simply beyond us and we are dependant on it like parasites Here if spring is silent it is because nature is fundamentally capricious The modern world is both in his vision fragile and tends to render us delicate a counterpoint to the triumphalism of faith in technology or otherwise said our colonial and pretended Imperial domination over nature

The Drought review ↠ 103 read & download The Drought N where a global drought brought on by industrial waste has left mankind in a life or death search for water. The Drought is written in a prose so consistently overwrought that it entertains on a different plane of reading altogether one that is experiential and a little bit nauseating It s exactly like drinking one of those fragrant fruity gins It reminds me of Poe at his most hysterical It makes me nostalgic for the era when novelists were allowed space and time to develop their craft because this early Ballard novel is an adjective laden morass of hokey fun and I can t shake the feeling that debut authors would never get away with this kind of thing in these highly competitive days of publishing when everything must be either deeply earnest andor sellable as a movie scriptAs with the last several Ballard novels I just read just days ago and just days apart from each other I got the feeling that any one sentence of this novel was a sentence that no one else but JG Ballard could have written Start for instance with this doozy of a first sentence At noon when Dr Charles Ransom moored his houseboat in the entrance to the river he saw uilter the idiot son of the old woman who lived in the ramshackle barge outside the yacht basin standing on a spur of exposed rock on the opposite bank and smiling at the dead birds floating in the water below his feet
