    PDF Christos Tsiolkas ´ Loaded Epub · ´ loaded book, Loaded eBookA friend of mine at work has been annoyed with me for not having read anything Tsiolkas and since I don’t watch TV I haven’t seen ‘The Slap’ or ‘Barracuda’ – which she says I would particularly enjoy since it fits with some of the themes I research about schools I probably ought to have seen the film that was made of this in 1998 – I knew Ana Kokkinos when I was growing up and I had meant to see the film at the time but this was all when I had become totally disillusioned with filmThis reminded me of a punk version of ‘The Graduate’ or of ‘The Dangling Man’ This like them has that sense of ‘coming of age’ but of also being stuck between life stages Although no one asks Ari if he wants to get into plastics The problem here is that it isn’t clear what his pathway to the future actually is The alcohol and drugs he consumes in this 24 hour period would kill a horse But the reader isn’t left with a sense of ‘liberation’ following all this excess but rat

    PDF Christos Tsiolkas ´ Loaded Epub · ´ loaded book, 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 boy Peter who escaped his family by moving in with his girlfriend but then cheats Ari gives you everything since it's first person and he's very blunt The other characters do not and

    PDF Christos Tsiolkas ´ Loaded Epub · ´ loaded book, 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 most people are cowards who have blindly and stupidly bought into the job mortgage American capitalism dream or nightmare depending on one’s perspective I know this takes place in Australia and was written by an Australian author but America is referenced several times Ari doesn’t want that life but he doesn’t yet have the strength to break away from it or know what kind of life he does want In the meantime he spends his time drinking drugging and having sex with friends

    PDF Christos Tsiolkas ´ Loaded Epub · ´ loaded book, 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 Christos Tsiolkas ´ Loaded Epub · ´ loaded book, 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
