Good morning limo riders. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve had some general discussion about Cosmopolis as a whole, had some stuff ‘splained to us and had some fun debating how um, fucked up Eric Packer is. The chauffeurs are thrilled with the enthusiatic response and can’t wait to pick up the conversation again!
Now, word on the street (that’s what we’re calling Twitter now 😉 ) is that lots of you are still reading or just finishing up your first read of Cosmopolis. That’s okay. I thought instead of a getting into a detailed topic today we could have kind of a round two. *brief daydream about Remember Me* Sorry about that. Yeah, another round to give everyone a chance to catch up, ask questions, and thoroughly interpret and appreciate Eric’s symbolically losing his clothing throughout the day. That’s right, it’s not some sort of peep show, it has meaning.
So, the limo glides slowly along, picking up those who’ve missed earlier discussions. Hop in, grab a bottle of water and a pair of sunglasses. For the love of Eric leave the rubber gloves alone. Here are a few of the things we talked about previously.
A favourite line…
A favourite scene…
Your general thoughts. Did you like it? Will you read more DeLillo? What do you think of Eric? Any themes jump out at you?
Is there a character you relate to? Who and why? Ask your questions too!
Here’s the poll again, if you missed last week.
Here are links to the previous discussions, if you’re interested. Day 1, Day 2, Topic: Destruction, Topic: Sex (lol at how much that will be clicked) We’re starting fresh here with the newbies – leave your comments here to make the discussion easier to follow. 🙂
See you in the comments, I mean, the limo. 😉
