The denouement of the book was very shocking. I've been thinking about it for almost a month, because I have something to work on.
Before the Aspen Factory, she read A Clockwork Orange, but it faded before her. More unreal chernushnoy oddity of what is happening, which are spelled out an order of magnitude more interesting, in my humble opinion.
Contrary to expectations, no.
There doesn't seem to be anything new in the book, but the characters are so extremely dazed that it's pretty damn interesting to watch them. Moreover, their actions are sometimes sufficiently justified.
The time spent is not a pity at all.
I spent half a day walking around thinking and in shock, and then I burst out laughing. I took “Aspen Factory” as a dark, grotesque satire on the eternal “it's not his fault, society is like this, childhood is bad.” A lot of funny (it is deliberately funny – noses with my brother rubbed and hello, I wanted to burn – drowned, a girl in flight – only flowers for memory – pure Marquez, another one was shot, eternal “hot dogs” of my brother) deaths and only because, obviously, an educated person confused a mountain with a pit. Now for me it's like the Simpsons, only in literature.
