ACIDE SULFURIQUE NOTHOMB PDF

When I picked up Acide Sulfurique translated: Sulphuric Acid from the sparsely filled shelves of the French section of my local library, I was struck by the cover image. The cover image features a butterfly that flew into a glass and broke its wing. I cannot say why I am so intrigued by this cover image. Perhaps it is because it is unusual and unlikely, almost surreal. There is something unsettling about this image. And yet, in such a calamity, a disturbing image can become beautiful.

When I picked up Acide Sulfurique translated: Sulphuric Acid from the sparsely filled shelves of the French section of my local library, I was struck by the cover image. The cover image features a butterfly that flew into a glass and broke its wing.

I cannot say why I am so intrigued by this cover image. Perhaps it is because it is unusual and unlikely, almost surreal. There is something unsettling about this image. And yet, in such a calamity, a disturbing image can become beautiful. Participants for the show are rounded up and loaded onto cattle trucks, among them the beautiful young woman Pannonique.

When Pannonique is delivered to the death camp and the cameras are turned on, she unknowingly becomes a media star, but she soon understands that her situation is all too real.

Pannonique is stripped of her identity, including her name, and she is reborn as CKZ Meanwhile, spectators are disgusted by this new television show. Overall, The Hunger Games is a perfect novel to translate to the cinema for its action and fast-paced narrative structure. Acide Sulfurique is purely horrific without any action or romance to detract from the cruelties the participants face on a day to day basis. Have you ever found yourself flipping through television channels and landing on an absurd reality t.

I have. I remember asking myself during every single commercial break… why am I watching this? This is trash! Or is it because deep down, I am actually enjoying this? Or would it? Would we be so disgusted that we would have no choice but to tune in to see who lives and who dies? Nothomb leaves this for us to decide. The novel itself is short and sweet, but it is very profound and frankly terrifying. Many dystopian novels are very focused on demonstrating the mechanics of society, or how society came to be a dystopian nightmare.

They may follow a protagonist as he or she begins to realize how fundamentally flawed their society is. But most dystopian novels tend to reveal the inner workings of society through the perspective of the narrator.

Acide Sulfurique rarely presents an outside perspective aside from the occasional collective outrage or opinions from the spectators. The public is quick to brand individuals into characters or two-dimensional stereotypes. This dehumanization uses the comforting removal of immediacy through the television screen. Meanwhile, the hired guards are presented as the villains of the show, and all the spectators can do is write about their outrage and keep tuning in.

I would recommend this book to older Hunger Games fans who are looking for something similar, yet more mature.

In the parks and on the street of Paris, hundreds of women, men and children are grabbed by the organizers and taken to a station to be piled into a cattle-truck.

A stunningly attractive young paleontologist by the name of Pannonique, who just so happened to be out for a walk in the Jardin des Plantes, is among their number. Pannonique understands screaming objections would be pointless since she can see the entire process is being filmed by cameras. Meanwhile, the organizers require another group fill out a questionnaire to make sure they are capable of bullying and beating strangers even when those unfortunate innocents moan, cry or plea for help. Twenty-year-old Zdena, who never passed an exam in her life but passes this one with flying colors, tells the organizers their program is brilliant.
