I only gave it three stars because it wasn t an important or particularly thought provoking book, not because it wasn t a great fun read The best word to describe this book is absurd It s certainly not a book to take seriously and spend any amount of time picking apart any of its aspects It should be enjoyed for what it is a really charming cast of characters in outlandish situations Savio s writing style was perfectly competent and he was adept at deadpan comedic dialogue and turn of phras I only gave it three stars because it wasn t an important or particularly thought provoking book, not because it wasn t a great fun read The best word to describe this book is absurd It s certainly not a book to take seriously and spend any amount of time picking apart any of its aspects It should be enjoyed for what it is a really charming cast of characters in outlandish situations Savio s writing style was perfectly competent and he was adept at deadpan comedic dialogue and turn of phrase His real strength was in the originality of the storyline If you like Douglas Coupland, I would say you d get a kick out of this book [[ DOWNLOAD ]] ↱ Idiots in the Machine ⇝ Filled with an unforgettable array of characters, this deliciously dark and comic novel chronicles the life of an eccentric near genius who is dragged into the media spotlight by the ultimate trendsetter a beautiful, charismatic, yet emotionally bankrupt young woman on an adventure that takes him from the depths of anonymity to the roof of Americas tallest building I really love this book I have to say, after a great start, it took a couple of chapters for it to really get moving, but you realize it s setting up the payoffs I love the twisting turning language It s just delicious I kept laughing out loud reading this on the plane I had to apologize to the guy next to me I spit part of my crappy box lunch on him He would probably rate this book no stars, but I recommend it. I HATED Ion Idiots in the Machine has garnered much comparison to A Confederacy of Dunces, an unfair comparison, that of literary debutant vs acknowledged genius However, one brought about by the author himself.While Edward Savio borrowed heavily from John Kennedy Toole s bag o tricks, he did so with much less finesse Toole painted fully realized characters with deft strokes, whereas Savio threw paint at the canvas And though this left all but the main characters rather flat and difficult to keep track Idiots in the Machine has garnered much comparison to A Confederacy of Dunces, an unfair comparison, that of literary debutant vs acknowledged genius However, one brought about by the author himself.While Edward Savio borrowed heavily from John Kennedy Toole s bag o tricks, he did so with much less finesse Toole painted fully realized characters with deft strokes, whereas Savio threw paint at the canvas And though this left all but the main characters rather flat and difficult to keep track of, Noel Satan Dorobek was infinitelyidentifiable than the indomitable Ignatius J Reilly.That factor, alongside a curiosity of how all the various threads would finally weave back together, explain why this book was not simply set aside one third of the way through A decision almost instantly overridden with the first jarring encounter of Ion s sexy time Talk about needlessly crude Where the hell did that come from Interestingly enough, while Savio provided an actual climactic event, it left me far less satisfied than Toole s looser ending Must be the Hollywood touchYou gettin smart, buddy asked the stranger Actually, I started out smart However with a seriously degenerating ozone, microwave ovens, and pop music constantly bombarding us all, I ve been getting dumber Much dumber 6 He started walking The man followed Satan sped up The man kept with him Satan slowed down The man dropped back Satan crossed the street against the light The man got run over by a bus 102 People were actually listening to him He wasn t sure he was comforted by that 172 Although, she thought about men all the time, and re read the nastiest sections of her novels over and over wishing someone would do those things to her, Lilly was, without a doubt, a virgin And a lonely and frustrated, yet imaginative virgin at that 179 insanity has a funny way of rubbing off on people Kind of like yawning 258 I m not very big on anything that encapsulates the human condition in ten words or less 302 Cockroaches weren t written about in the Bible a fact that made him doubt the

world through the eyes of Satan It s about a guy who wears tinfoil on his head, thinks people live in the center of the earth, he s not totally crazy, he s just a little off Some woman finds him and

purchase I seldom go out of my way to review a book So, for whatever that s worth, it s worth a read I could not finish this book It s totally derivative of the far superior A Confederacy of Dunces, from the homage of the opening scene to the characters themselves, obviously caricatures of the portraits John Kennedy Toole painted in his own novel While I wouldn t call Toole subtle, Savio makes him look that way relatively with the heavy hand he uses in his own book It s all very self indulgent and self satisfied, and I got the feeling the author was farimpressed with himself than I c I

is an homage to this book I didn t care very much for that book, so maybe it s not a surprise that I didn t like this one much either.It had an occasional hilarious moment, but the problems outweighed them by far the characterizations were muddy and unconvincing and the plot was dragged way too far out for me I almost stopped reading about 2 3 of the way through The author says that his book is an
