The Final Programme Free read ✓ 104 For generations of characters sinceMichael Moorcock rechazando las disputas de límites ue han reducido la novela a una confusión de subgéneros en conflicto recobra en estos cuatro volúmenes una vitalidad y una amplitud proteicas ue pudieran llamarse dickensianas si no pertenecieran tan por completo a nustro tiempo volátil En verdad ninguna obra reciente de ficción ha manejado mejor las contingencias vertiginosas de la imaginación del medio siglo ue esta brava arleuinada de juegos de identidad realidades falsificadas historia paródica y un pobre y ordinario apocalipsis WL Webb The Guardian Moorcock ha creado una figura capaz de moverse. I think this book has some hilarious dialogue In fact the bossy Miss Brunner is great But this was a very tedious read It s like one long rambling joke Parts of it are funny but most of it is pointless There s no depth to any of the characters There s no plot I think Moorcock was trying to shock people with things like incest and fratricide but since I m not easily shocked I almost fell asleepI love the movie though I ve read Moorcock hated itfigures

The Final Programme Free read ✓ 104 Jerry Cornelius is a scientist a rock star and an assassin He is the hippest adventurer of them all tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings murder sex and drugs are a daily occurrence Along with his savvy and ruthless partner in chaos Miss Brunner Cornelius is on a mission to control a revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being a modern messiah the final programmeThe first book in the Cornelius uartet is the groundbreaking introduction to the misadventures and vendettas of Jerry Cornelius one of modern literature’s most distinctive characters the product of a bewildering post modern culture and an inspiration. The Final Programme is the first volume in British author Michael Moorcock s The Cornelius uartet The other novels in the tetralogy are A Cure for Cancer The English Assassin The Condition of Muzak The Final Programme surely ranks among the top ten New Wave SF novels from the 60s However it must be noted this Michael Moorcock genre bender does not fit into any clearly defined category science fiction or otherwise The Final Programme starts off as fast paced action thriller and then shifts gears to set the world record for most philosophic reflections and cool images in a novel of 250 pages The novel s main dude is twenty seven year old hip wealthy Londoner Jerry Cornelius driving his Duesenberg luxury sedan sporting the latest mod fashion and packing a deadly needle gun among the SF elements Yes yes yet another of the author s Eternal Champions with the initials JC But what Jerry doesn t possess is his inheritance precious microfilms to unlock the secrets of the universe Jerry s drug experimenting brother diabolical Frank won that honor since Jerry s father discovered Jerry having sex with sister Catherine That s right incest Any doubts we re reading a 60s novel pushing sexual boundaries Oh how Jerry would love to get his hands on that precious microfilm As does a Miss Brunner and a number of her metaphysically inclined eccentric friends And to add fuel to his brotherly revenge Jerry plans to rescue dear sister Catherine currently held captive by dastardly Frank Ah revenge Jerry heads up an attack against Frank and Frank s small army of German mercenaries walled up in a Le Cobusier style ch teau along the coast of Normandy a fortress their father constructed many years prior to the Second World War Thus the first portion of the novel is full throttle action thriller But fear not the mighty Moorcock goes on to hurl so much at a reader beyond a mere James Bond adventure As a way of sharing a tasty taste here are some scrumptious Final Programme yummies Supreme StatementIs the Final Programme of The Final Programme the ultimate euation for the ultimate computer program I wouldn t want to spoil by even hinting at what this could mean But I ll give you one hint keep your eye on Miss Brunner Playful ParodyMichael Moorcock absolutely refused to be pigeonholed by any label or genre Recall that stock Western phrase Throw down your gun and come out with your hands up Well the author plays off the cowboy command when he has Jerry tell Frank Throw in your needle and come in with your veins clear A careful reader will detect Michael Moorcock repeatedly poking fun at Golden Age pulp science fiction with its Buck Rogers rocket ships good guys vs bad guys and hideous Martians chasing scantly clad busty beauties Pop Culture Jerry reads the comics eats Mars bars listens to The Who and The Beatles natch plays pinball but still has the mental acumen to publish a paper on unified field theory Even during an exchange of ideas on cosmology there s the constant blare real or imagined of guitars and drums Turning the pages of The Final Programme you can almost hear the thumping beat of The Who s Tommy Pinball Wizard switching back and forth with the Fab Four s Come Together Let it Be and Strawberry Fields Forever CrashInstead there was a photo covering the whole side a mass car smash with mangled corpses everywhere Jerry supposed that the picture sold sheets One of Michael Moorcock s preoccupations the struggle of order vs chaos It s no coincidence The Cornelius uartet published within the same time frame as J G Ballard s Crash Slick modern automobiles as symbol for both life giving freedom and death dealing tragedy order vs chaos coming to a dealer near you Vampires Jerry muses He found that he didn t need to eat much because he could live off other people s energy just as well An ongoing theme in the novel the transfer of energy from one person to another one object to another in the context of Hindu cosmology physics astrology vampires you name it Seriousness Kills The last thing our British author wants is for one to read his Cornelius uartet without a sense of humor Seasoned throughout Final Programme are uotable laugh lines such as He would certainly kill Frank when they raided the house Frank s final needle would come from Jerry s gun It would give him his final kick the one he kept looking for James Bond meets another great JC John Cleese Miss Brunner Ally or Adversary Miss Brunner might be than she appears to be Jerry senses this when he says Miss Brunner if I hadn t been through my theological phase I d be identifying you as first suspect for Mephistopheles To which Miss Brunner replies I haven t got my pointed beard Not with meHa Beware Jerry As Arthur Schopenhauer was fond of repeating Whoever expects to see devils go through the world with horns and fools with jingling bells will always be their prey or playthingHowever Jerry is wise enough to recognize that he can t fit Miss Brunner in with Homo Sapiens When Miss Brunner dear lady hears Jerry voice these words she acknowledges that she doesn t fit in easily anywhere Oh my goodness What is Miss Brunner admitting Is this a foreshadowing of things to come A uestion to keep in mind since Miss Brunner makes her appearance in each novel within the tetralogy PsychedliaPrime 60s weapon employed by brother Frank in his role as prototypical Ian Fleming bad guy LSD gas Hang in Jerry You must steel yourself to overcome the mind bending effectsHis brain and body exploded in a torrent of mingled ecstasy and pain Regret Guilt Relief Waves of pale light flickered He fell down a never ending slope of obsidian rock surrounded by clouds of green purple yellow black Another wave flowed up his spine No mind no body no where Dying waves of light danced out of his eyes and away through the dark world Everything was dying Cells sinews nerves synapses all crumbling Tears of light fading fading Brilliant rockets streaking into the sky and exploding all together and sending their multicoloured globes of light balls on an Xmas tree x mass drifting slowly Black mist swirled across a bleak horizoness nightscapeHollow Earth TheoryEdgar Rice Burroughs wrote of a prehistoric world 500 miles below the earth s surface a secret world lit by a constant noonday inner sun Jerry toys with Hollow Earth Theory along with Hindu cosmic cycles Kali Yuga most prominent relativity physics neuroscience mathematics Nietzsche s eternal return the list goes onI urge you to order a copy of The Final Programme The recently published Titan Books edition is the one to go with particularly since there s an insightful Introduction written by none other than lead authority on Science Fiction critic and author John Clute I ll conclude with one of John Clute s keen observations re Jerry Cornelius The presentation of self in everyday life in the inner city is a form of theatre where identity is r le and where entropy is high for time is passing Jerry Cornelius is the paradigmatic native of the inner city Photo taken around 1968 the time when British author Michael Moorcock wrote The Final Programme A moment later the world s first all purpose human being strode eastward whistling A tasty world it reflected cheerfully A very tasty world You said it Cornelius Michael Moorcock The Final Programme
