Wilf Smith is an arse. This book is good. DiS.... Whatcha'say?
I thought it was an overly-affected crap book. But I might like it if I read it again I guess.
Self, Good. Will Smith, bad. I think you should read it again, as should i. Society on its head 'n all that....
Hell... When the art D00d realises he's an ape, in an ape world....geniio,,,ooous. Prince 'o Bell Air has it moments but can really suck my cock release.
No idea what me be sayin ^. Burninginstructer sleeps now. Views on 'Snow Falling in Ceders' welcome.
that book would be a lot better than it was. i thought it was really disappointing - the puns get really very irritating after a while, and the fact that EVERYTHING in the human world has to be transposed to the ape world kind of pissed me off. i thought it got in the way of the plot.
conversely to you burninginstructor i really like will self - i think he's really funny and love his sardonic humour - shame it didn't come across in 'great apes'
That PLOT.. WHOLE PLOT.. AND NOTHIN BUT PLOT.. Was supposed to be simian. there i n Lies
I would like it more if I read it again as I know what it's not but the blurb made me think that it was going to be a far more interesting and weird.
I think it didn't help that I read it about 10 years ago at university when I hadn't really encountered that sort of writing at all.
