review The Final Programme 103 Jerry Cornelius is a scientist a rock star and an assassin He is the hippest adventurer of them all tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings murder sex and drugs are a daily occurrence Along with his savvy and ruthless partner in chaos Miss Brunner Cornelius is on a mission to control a revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being a modern messiah the final programmeThe first book in the Cornelius uartet is the groundbreaking introduction to the misadventures and vendettas of Jerry Cornelius one of modern literature’s most distinctive characters the product of a bewildering post modern culture and an inspiration. For a 1960 s science fiction novel laced with sex drugs and rock roll I didn t enjoy this book nearly as much as I thought I would The Final Programme was my introduction to Michael Moorcock and I will probably not be reading the other three books in this uartet I say probably rather than definitely because the book wasn t actually bad But it was a chore to read to the end The fact that the story was not compelling had little to do with my boredom I don t need a plot or well developed characters to be happy Create the right atmosphere and I m good And the atmosphere of London in the Swinging Sixties should have kept me plenty amused But it didn t The outrageous sci fi elements and Eastern philosophy also should have held my interest But they didn t Looking back on the reading experience as a whole I can say the book was not without its fun but there were no actual moments when I was having any There s one scene that stands out to me as a good example of my ambivalence about this book It is a psychedelic scene where Jerry Cornelius is tripping on a hallucinogen laced needle shot at him by his brother during a raid on his eccentric family s booby trapped mansion Sounds like fun already right Well it sounds like fun than it is He was riding a black ferris wheel of emotions His brain and body exploded in a torrent of mingled ecstasy and pain Regret Guilt Relief Waves of pale light flickered He fell down a never ending slope of obsidian rock surrounded by clouds of green purple yellow black The rock vanished but he continued to fall World of phosphorescence drifting like golden spheres into the black night Green blue red explosions Flickering world of phosphorescent tears falling into timeless spaceless wastes World of Guilt Guilt guilt guiltAnother wave flowed up his spine No mind no body no where Dying waves of light danced out of his eyes and away through the dark world Everything was dying Cells sinews nerves synapses all crumbling Tears of light fading fading Brilliant rockets streaking into the sky and exploding all together and sending their multicoloured globes of light balls on an Xmas tree x mass drifting slowly Black mist swirled across a bleak horizonless nightscape 98I love psychedelic imagery but this passage strikes me as uninspired pedestrian It s not bad It s just that it has potential to be good and it doesn t live up to that potentialThen there s the general atmosphere of Swinging London the neon signs and pinball machines Beatles music and mod fashion This also should have been much better than it is It was a world ruled by the gun the guitar and the needle 111 Perhaps substitute a lava lamp for the gun and a bong for the needle but no it s not the trappings of the scene it s the style that loses me I m okay with an evil James Bond Apparently I m even okay with incest and assassination But I m not okay with writing that falls flat Moorcock never uite creates the mood that would breathe life into his novel Still there are things I liked about the book It was campy and I like that in small doses I also understand from John Clute s introduction that the Jerry Cornelius stories are a sort of template for New Wave sci fi and it was good to get a feel for the subgenre I can see how this book could easily become a cult classic but it s not a cult I m likely to join Master Cleanse rock star and an assassin He is the hippest adventurer of them all tripping through a pop art nightmare in which kidnappings murder sex and drugs are a daily occurrence Along with his savvy and Star Wars The Force Awakens #3 ruthless partner in chaos Miss Brunner Cornelius is on a mission to control a Une adolescence revolutionary code for creating the ultimate human being a modern messiah the final programmeThe first book in the Cornelius uartet is the groundbreaking introduction to the misadventures and vendettas of Jerry Cornelius one of modern literature’s most distinctive characters the product of a bewildering post modern culture and an inspiration.

review The Final Programme 103 For generations of characters sinceMichael Moorcock rechazando las disputas de límites ue han reducido la novela a una confusión de subgéneros en conflicto recobra en estos cuatro volúmenes una vitalidad y una amplitud proteicas ue pudieran llamarse dickensianas si no pertenecieran tan por completo a nustro tiempo volátil En verdad ninguna obra reciente de ficción ha manejado mejor las contingencias vertiginosas de la imaginación del medio siglo ue esta brava arleuinada de juegos de identidad realidades falsificadas historia paródica y un pobre y ordinario apocalipsis WL Webb The Guardian Moorcock ha creado una figura capaz de moverse. In the apocalyptic end point of swinging 60s London the universe parties and pleasure seeks itself into oblivion as an eternally bored hipster and amoral vampiric scientist set in motion the renewal and continuance of human existence With its offhandedly cursory yet pretentious philosophizing horrendously uneven wobbling between bizarre action set piece and graspings at significance weird jokiness hiding its overearnestness and and rather unlikeable super cool protagonist this one earns a deserved fair share of detractors In many ways it s dreadful And yet there s something so weird and so desperate to touch the real that lies far outside any shred of conventional character progression or resolution that it s also kind of remarkable It s almost a kind of psychedelic outsider religion with no care for reader identification or really even human life in the overarching and inescapable cosmic cycle of destruction and renewal Its casual incompetence belies a brutal and fine honed urgency of a kind Easy to write off as terrible but ambiguous than that reallyThis also became an eually uneven but perhaps concisely entertaining movie which preserves many of its expectation confusing ualities

    E–pub [The Final Programme] By Michael Moorcock I think this book has some hilarious dialogue In fact the bossy Miss Brunner is great But this was a very tedious read It's like one long rambling joke Parts of it are funny but most of it is pointless There's no depth to any of the characters There's no plot I think Moorcock was trying to shock people with things like incest and fratricide but since I’m not easily shocked I almost fell asleepI love the movie though I've read
