A lackluster shitball of a plot wrapped around super interesting conversations about life, death, and technology. Mostly not worth the effort.

Irvine Welsh
“It's only now that I realize that behaviour always has a context and precedents, it's what you do rather than what you are, although we often never recognise that context or understand what these precedents are.”
Irvine Welsh, Marabou Stork Nightmares

Sergio Chejfec
“For a long time, we assume we know who we are, until the moment we fully realize who that is; in that moment, identity is no longer predictable, but rather takes the form of a truth that, like any other, can become a sentence with no more than a change of perspective.”
Sergio Chejfec, The Planets

José Saramago
“Death went on, If I'd sent you, with your taste for expeditious methods, the matter would have been resolved, but times have changed a lot lately, and one has to update the means and the systems one uses, to keep up with the new technologies, by using e-mail, for example, I've heard tell that it's the most hygienic way, one that does away with inkblots and fingerprints, besides which it's fast, you just open up outlook express on microsoft and it's gone, the difficulty would be having to work with two separate archives, one for those who use computers and another for those who don't, anyway, we've got plenty of time to think about it, they're always coming out with new models and new designs, with new improved technologies, perhaps I'll try it some day, but until then, I'll continue to write with pen, paper and ink, it has the charm of tradition, and tradition counts for a lot when it comes to dying.”
José Saramago, Death with Interruptions

Don DeLillo
“Stories have no point if they don't absorb our terror.”
Don DeLillo, Mao II

Neal Stephenson
“What, not coins in the bank? Does your purse hang as flaccid as a gelding's scrotum?”
Neal Stephenson, The Confusion
