    FREE DOWNLOAD Pastoralia 107 PastoraliaI think that if the arrangement of this collection had been reversed I would be singing a different tune right now but as it stands I am a bit torn regarding rating this thing Man these stories are well written Saunders is darkly witty and clearly his heart is in the right place His main point of contention with the modern world is the reckless hammer of Capitalism an easy target to be sure but that is arguably all the reason to call it into uestion The injuries that it inflicts are almost universally felt In Pastoralia Saunders has created a series of near future worlds sprinkled with Dystopian and Horror elements in which the voyeuristic tendencies and indiscriminately exploitative undercurrents of modern society are heightened in such a way that they become grossly comical The name of the game is satire and he pulls out all the stops while driving home just how pathetically isolat

    FREE DOWNLOAD Pastoralia 107 Pastoralia ''His childhood dreams had been so bright he had hoped for so much it couldn't be true that he was a nobody''These stories wacky as they may be don't paint a very flattering portrait of modern life A father takes a job as a grunting caveman at a run down theme park in order to pay his son's exorbitant medical bills A male stripper earns a meagre wage to support his ungrateful family who spend their day watching reality TV like How My Child Died Violently and The Worst That Could Happen a show of computer generated tragedies A desperate coward attends a New Age seminar where is told to repeat the mantra Now Is the Time for Me to Win and to remove his mentally ill sister from his home in order to achieve his goalsThe American Dream hasn't really happened for these characters They're all a bunch of sad sacks and nobodies who fantasise about the life they might have had Any flicker of hope exists only inside their own

    FREE DOWNLOAD Pastoralia 107 PastoraliaThe stories in Pastoralia were pretty great Saunders definitely has a schtick here – sad sack characters worn down by the unfairness of life in mostly comedic situations – but as there’s just six stories it doesn’t get a chance to wear thin The satire is goofy yet melancholic and it never feels mean Such a short book though reading it all in one go means it’s over too soon
