A minute into the book, I understood that it isn t for me This book, as claimed to be one of the best transgressive fiction work of tamil sadly didn t work for me Okay this had happened before I thought I should give it onetry.
This was my second attempt to read this book Prepared myself with all admirations it received for its lipogrammatic structure and others That drove me through first 20 pages of it and again, found it impossible to move further Now I started hating this book and Charu.
Well, was it because he was stating I dont know what to write a review about this book because I dont know what author is trying to say.
I gave 4 stars because I have come to know a new genre called Transgressive fiction but still I dont understand the theme behind this F ng zero degree its like each page is not linked.
ok what is lippogrammatic read again and again so that you will not understand.
This book is definitely not for everyone, definitely not for the faint of heart and most definitely not for young or sensitive readers It is extremely rare to come across readily available English translations of Avant Garde Tamil writing so I have been raring to read this book for a while I had searched for this book on bothIndia as well as Flipkart but finally found a copy at my neighborhood book store God bless independent book stores and may they live forever.
This book is very difficult to read Some chapters are extremely obscure, making references to long dead European existentialists while others are graphic in their portrayal of sexual, physical and psychological violence This book is definitely written in a way to provoke mainstream polite Tamil society and is as far away from what is considered acceptable literature as one can imagine.
But that × ஸீரோ டிகிரி ✓ The most craziest novel I have read till date Felt irritated, shocked, surprised, disgusted, sympathetic and bored This is no easy novel and definitely not for those who can get offended by strong content of violence and sex Never thought a novel could be this way and the most interesting read was Avanthika s episode in the novel Zero Degree definitely needs a second read.
This is a piece of shit.
I neither liked this book nor disliked this book my head was swirling like anything when i m done with thing this is my first non linear lipogrammatic novel why did i read this novel The legendary writer Sujatha called it a piece of shit Tehelka called it Style with substance Some called for the book to be banned straight away Wikipedia calls it Postmodern lipogrammatic novel some call it transgressive fiction.
First, remember everything you are told and have believed a novel is, particularly the Indian novel Some things on the lines of A novel is a work of fiction It contains several common elements such as character, plot, narrative It explores what is loosely called the human condition It may sometimes be an instrument for social change It is a socio political reflection of its times It entertains, informs, edu A lipogrammatic novel In tamil written in the 80s Whoa Unbelievable right One of the most unique and disturbing books you ll ever read There may b no other book as unique as this in any other language.
It s a transgressive novel and its transgression at its peak Zero degrees is way ahead of its time Even in 2015, it seems too futuristic to be true Kudos to Charu for his bravery The book shatters all the expected codes of decency and morality in the very first page where he describes the different kinds of readers It has no clear narration its not even non linear the story is randomly scattered between the chapters of the book but its oddly engaging In a narration that switches between different languages yeah there s a lot of English,Hindi,etc , different forms of prose and poetry, different continents, different personalities and whatnot , never once are you
