Generation “P” by Victor Pelevin. The collapse of the Soviet Union has opened up a huge consumer market, but how do you sell things to a generation that grew up with just one type of cola? When Tatarsky, a frustrated poet, takes a job as an advertising copywriter, he finds he has a talent for putting distinctively Russian twists on Western-style ads. But his success leads him into a surreal world of spin d The collapse of the Soviet Union has opened up a huge consumer market, but how do you sell things to a generation that grew up with just one type of cola?
But his success leads him into a surreal world of spin doctors, gangsters, drug trips, and the spirit of Che Guevera, who, by way of a Ouija board, communicates theories of consumer theology. A bestseller in Russia, Homo Zapiens displays the biting absurdist satire that has gained Victor Pelevin superstar status among today’s Russian youth, disapproval from the conservative Moscow literary world, and critical acclaim worldwide.

Even skimming a lot through the boring theoretical passages on marketing, Western vs Russian society or television, I could not follow the rambling plot and stopped caring about it. Everything is poorly connected: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

Initially, I thought that this book might just be a slow-starter, but no, I just didn’t like it. I think I emotionally threw in the towel when the main character has a Ouija-board seance with Che Guevara, in which Guevara lays out some of the fundamentals of marketing.
Never mind the drinking, or various drugs. Although I’m open to many stories and genres, this one just c Pelevin’s book might be better had he and I shared so many of the cultural references to which he points throughout his book. Although I’m open to many stories and genres, this one just couldn’t hold onto me.
Just couldn’t do it. Once upon a time I started reading this book in Russian and translating it as language practice. Fortunately I stopped fairly early on, because it would have been a translating mess had I kept going.
None of which is the point. It’s an interesting novel, and I think I might have liked it once, but I struggled, and only finished it because I felt like I had to see it through.
I’m sorry to say I did not enjoy this one. In fact, I got so bored with it I gave up on it half way through. Pelevin has lost his freshness– I really enjoyed many of his earlier books!

Everytime you wake up, you appear again out of nowhere. And so does everything else. Death just means the replacement of the usual morning waking with something else, something quite impossible even to think about.
