    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookI read it in just two sittings last week on the way to Perth and then back again I read The Slap a few years ago and it’s a novel I still think about and had been meaning to read of his work and my friends had raved about LoadedIt is sharp and intense It’s about a 19 year old boy Ari who likes to have sex and take a lot of drugs and it takes place over one night The novel moves seamlessly through the various places he goes out to to the various people he meets It feels a little like a drug trip as you read it but it’s never just drugs and sex and nothing under the surfaceAs with many successful novels I think Tsiolkas has managed to nail the voice along with a kind of minimalism that is not too over the top The casual language and pace make it easy to keep reading an

    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookHmmm Here's the thing I've never been a fan of this style of writing of this kind of content of boys who just want to get high and fuck someone Which is essentially all this book is aboutYes there is some of the coming of age stuff Ari is nineteen and still not confident in his sexuality fluxing between admitting that he's gay and fighting it It's a classic case of being in the closet And there's a bit of character development by the end but not enough to leave me feeling like Ari's come a long way Or any way at all The writing is very lucid It's sharp intense Too much Because of that the side characters are interesting Johnny who dresses in drag and calls himself Toula Alex who's in love with a Muslim

    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookLoaded was the debut novel of Christos Tsiolkas It is an ambitious novel Novella? It’s uite short that touches on being the child of immigrants sexuality family and connecting with other people It reminded me Catcher in the Rye with the caveat that it has been a long time since I last read Catcher Like Holden Caulfield Ari has failed out of school Holden was kicked out doesn’t have a job and has no plans to get one He is pissed off at the world and thinks mos

    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookAstounding shocking engaging and totally wonderful Tsiolkas thrusts us into a drug fuelled sex driven 24 hours Ari is driven by shame completely self absorbed and can't reconcile who he is and who he should be Don't read this if you have any issues about graphic descriptions of gay sex or self gratificationDespite not having any connection with this lifestyle or world I thought this was incredibly crafted heart wrenching in your face grungy and thoroughly worthwhileThere's than one 'underbelly' going on in Melbourne

    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookThis is the one Tsiolkas book I actually like because the nihilistic world sucks I hate everyone actually feels perfect for the viewpoint of a young gay man set on self destruction because he thinks the world is against him Ari is not a likable character but he's definitely a relatable one We've all been there

    PDF/EPUB Christos Tsiolkas õ PDF/EPUB Loaded ePUB ´ õ american history.co loaded pdf, Loaded eBookPerhaps I should've started my journey of reading Tsiolkas with this book Being his first book there is a lot of raw emotion that courses through it something that gets refined and nuanced in his later works Having read these later works I did miss some of the refinementThis book centers around the almost teenage angst that is felt by the protagonist Ari this character feels like a gayer Australian version of Holden Caulfield from The Catcher in the Rye I read that one as a teen and could understand the angst and the rebellion better at the time Here I sometimes wanted to ask Ari to just grow up Not everythin
