В книгу Виктора Пелевина включены одни из лучших, и по мнению самого автора, произведений, раскрывающих сущность социальных процессов, происходящих в постсоветском пространстве, и их влияние на личность и духовность общества. Необычно и ярко перед читателем этой книги предстанет современный мир с его абсурдностью и потайными, часто невидимыми глазу противоречиями. И тот по ...more

mislim da sam jedino uliksa duže žvakao. ideja fenomenalna, realizacija malo tanja, ali čitanje peljevina je uvek dobar mazohizam.

Generation П беше първия роман на Пелевин, който прочетох, след поредицата разкази, преди почти 20 години в аматьорския превод на Иван Попов. Тогава бях като треснат. Вчера я прехвърлих сигурно за 10 път - очарованието е останало.
За тази книга могат да се кажат много неща и е абсолютно задължителна за всички от рекламния бранш. Нещата са казани пряко и силно, не загатнати какво "99" на Бегбеде. За изминалите години са се сменили някои технически средства, но основните похвати си остават същите.

acid, witty and engulfing. a critique of modernity, consumerism and capitalism.

memorable concepts and ideas: oranus as a description of the global economy, television as an altered state of consciousness and instrument of control, money as an instrument of moral and ethical evaluation, advertising as a technique of control and propaganda, virtualization of reality.

Лихие 90-е, наркотики, бандиты, малиновый пиджак, авторитет - это все фон, на котором разворачивается канва произведения. Главные герой работает в рекламном агентстве и сочиняет рекламные слоганы к продуктам. Продукты продвигаются на только созданом рынке страны. Все это так топорно и искуственно. Герой всасывает из пальца вдохновение. А когда его нет на помощь приходят наркотики. Ведь начальство не дремлет, а за начальством стоят люди. Могут и убить. Такие лихие 90-е...
Все это в совокупности вы

This book had some interesting moments.

My favourite element: the thought-processes of the protagonist when he was generating his slogans. That involves world-play, puns and an understanding of Soviet and !Soviet cultures - good stuff!


Still, I have to admit that the primary reason for reading this book was "să pot răspunde la întrebări CUC" (-;

Pelevin is must read for everyone, who is interested:
1. How do people live in Russia after USSR collapsed
2. Whats wrong with us in capitalistic societies

U r right, that from the first sight, they don`t look similar.
Without spoiling, the thing i got- our minds are full of garbage we need to clean.
And yep, enjoy... it definitely gonna broad ur imagination.

Копирайтър в руските мутренски години, който ъпдейтва слоганите и идеите на световните марки така, че да имат смисъл на руския пазар. Звучи много по-интересно, отколкото в действителност успява да бъде.

Нежната руска душевност.

В началото ми беше смешно, после ми стана досадно и към края се наложи да прескачам големи пасажи. Вероятно е добра литература, но не точно мой тип.

Sužavėjo. Daugybė sveiko sarkazmo, labai įtraukiantis siužetas ir puikus stilius.

/Dažnai nutinka - išeini vasaros rytą į gatvę, matai priešais save milžinišką, nuostabų, kažkur skubantį pasaulį, kupiną neaiškių pažadų ir trykštančios iš dangaus laimės, ir staiga sielą perveria supresuotas į sekundės dalį, akimirksnį trunkantis jausmas, kad štai plyti prieš tave gyvenimas ir gali eiti juo pirmyn neatsisukdamas, pastatyti ant kortos patį save ir išlošti, ir praskrieti baltu kateriu jo jūromis, ir

Обожаю Пелевина 😍!!! А его "Generation "П" не люблю. Возможно, потому что сама не отношусь к этому поколению, и не могу прочувствовать то время 😞.

И только конец повести загоняет в глубины подсознания. То прекрасное чувство, когда точка - не завершение, а начало. Когда переосмысливаешь все произведение.
Ощущение, что вот оно: то, что я всегда знала, но не могла сформулировать. Будто Виктор Олегович протягивает мне ящерицу тайного знания, а я по глупости беру ее за хвост и упускаю. И остаётся

Una interesante mirada a la Rusia en pleno proceso de descomposición y trance capitalista. Un lenguaje veloz, a ratos vuela y cuesta mantener la atención.
No deja de ser interesante la evolución de la historia que parte en la simple transformación de un filósofo en un publicista que sin darse cuenta "asciende" en la virtud del Capitalismo bajo la mirada atenta de una mano invisible.

Каждый раз Татарский спрашивал себя, зачем он и другие платят такие деньги, чтобы вновь подвергнуть себя унизительной и негигиеничной процедуре, в которой нет ни одной реальной секунды удовольствия, а только мгновенно возникающий и постепенно рассасывающийся отходняк. Единственное объяснение, которое приходило ему в голову, было следующим: люди нюхали не кокаин, а деньги, и свернутая стодолларовая купюра, которой требовал неписаный ритуал, была даже важнее самого порошка. Если бы кокаин прода

Пелевин оставляет по себе неоднозначное впечатление. С одной стороны, аплодисменты и овации, мастер есть мастер, с другой, - непреодолимое чувство, что тебя обманули и вместо искусства ты читал затянувшийся фельетон.

А создается у читателя это впечатление от высокомерия автора, выражаемом в первую очередь в немыслимом количестве англицизмов. Для меня последней каплей стал "молодой человек с понитэйлом". Замысел в том, конечно, и был, чтобы лишний раз ткнуть русскому читателю в нерусскость глобали

Faceți cunoștință cu Vavilen. Este copywriter, a studiat literatura și se vrea poet. În Rusia modernă, lucrurile sunt razna și realitățile nu-s chiar evidente. Psihoză colectivă? Poate asta vrea să spună Generația P. Sincer, habar n-am. :) Stau și mă gândesc cum să scriu despre cartea asta. E o nebunie, credeți-mă, un amalgam fascinant și bizar, pe care nu prea știi de unde să-l apuci, care de la un punct încolo dă deoparte sensul, narațiunea și o ia pe câmpi complet.

E genul ăla de carte care la

A pretty good book taking place in Russia after the fall of Soviet Union. In this world where the country and its people are making a transition from communism to a wide consumer world the main character gets a job in marketing to promote new coming western products for the Russians.

The book consists of many themes. It is mainly a satire of the western consumer culture where people are more happy about spending money than about the product itself and how human mind is being manipulated. Homo Zap

lots of meaning, but glad i did not read the full version - brief book was enough!

this is some stuff the author could only write when stoned and smoked.

it is advertising industry + mason conspiracy theory + ancient middle eastern gods.

not recommended.

Everything regarding Generation P is gloomy. I found myself in the gloomy, uncertain weather of Moscow, stuck in the early '90s. Strangely enought, it wasn't such a bad feeling but I'm not sure I'd like it to last.

Generation P was rather interesting some years ago. Now the life is changed and something is not actual anymore. But the sense of humor still seems great and unusual.
If you ask me what I read 10 years ago that'll be the first book I'll mention.

"Victor Olegovich Pelevin is a Russian fiction writer. His books usually carry the outward conventions of the science fiction genre, but are used to construct involved, multi-layered postmodernist texts, fusing together elements of pop culture and esoteric philosophies. Some critics relate his prose to the New Sincerity and New Realism literary movements." (Wikipedia)

“Comrades in the struggle! The position of modern man is not merely lamentable; one might even say that there is no condition, because man hardly exists. Nothing exists to which one could point and say: 'There, that is Homo Zapiens.' HZ is simply the residual luminescence of a soul fallen asleep; it is a film about the shooting of another film, shown on a television in an empty house.” 2 likes
