Summary È eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ✓ Steven Hall The Raw Shark Texts characters È eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Steven Hall ✓ 7 Read Eric Sanderson wakes up in a house one day with no idea who or where he is A note instructs him to see a Dr Randle immediately who informs him that he is undergoing yet another episode of acute memory loss that is a symptom of his severe dissociative disorder Eric's been in Dr Randle's care for two years since the tragic death of h. You know what I likeThis whole genre of stuffy British dudes who find themselves unwillingly going on adventures and discovering that there s to them than just being pasty and flusteredAnd yeah it s a genre There s TONS of books with that same damn plot Thing is they re often very entertainingThey re also usually played for laughs Which is not the case in The Raw Shark Texts Yes the protagonist eventually finds himself drawn into a world where the old rules don t apply Yes he has an adventure Yes he even has a sidekick in the form of an irascible unflappable fortunately non talking ginger catBut it s a story of confusion and grief and loss Eric Sanderson has lost everything he ever held dear including himself beginning with a stupid everyday accident and culminating in the predations of a conceptual beast who feeds on memory and swims the currents of ideas and informationIt s a very meta sort of story with much of the narrative being dedicated to the biology of ideas and memes how they grow and evolve how they have their own ecosystem that interacts with our material one There s also a fair bit of fourth wall breaking but not in the usual sense as the words and type on the page are molded and re arrange to become illustration than textI m not sure I can properly review this book I really don t have the language for it But I can assure you even if the plot is a bit familiar the ideas are uite unlike anything you re likely to have encountered
