Going Bovine Read ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Can Cameron find what he's looking forAll 16 year old Cameron wants is to get through high school and life in general with a minimum of effort It's not a lot to ask But that's before he's given some bad news he's sick and. Bray takes on the great Don uixote and delivers than a modern satire She gives us a wild ride worthy of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz that is not only fun and hilarious but moving and exceptionally written This novel is a monumental undertaking and somehow Bray accomplishes itIn the beginning I found Cameron wholly unrelatable but Bray is so witty and has such a way with sarcastic metaphors and sneaking in description so you see and smell and hear and feel the book without it slowing down the plot that I didn t want to stop reading even though I didn t care about Cameron who was a total loser He s going nowhere at school Gets fired from his job with good reason Hates his family and they aren t too fond of his slackerness either His only hobby seems to be to listen to music he hates so he can mock it He s high at least once a week Shows no hope no responsibility and elicits zero sympathy from me But Bray managed to keep me interested in his story and smiling at her wit despite the f word coming out in every sentence Isn t it against some social norm to say the f word when you re talking about DisneylandJust as I was getting turned off with the too modern feel references to WTF rents things like that in a story that didn t seem to go anywhere Cameron develops mad cow disease and starts his mental decline That s when he heads out on a mission to save himself and the world On his travels he takes a hypochondriac dwarf picks up a talking garden gnome and heads toward the happiest place on earth following clues of the seemingly random with help from a punk rock angel Yeah it s that whackedI laughed and smiled through all his misadventures that were really the adventure in disguise The way Bray weaved everything in his life from snow globes to cartoons into this adventure so that it was not only important but part of some grander metaphor for his life was utter genius I am in awe of Bray s creative power Through his whole crazy adventure you can laugh at this story for the slapstick humor or find that deep meaningful awareness of pot talk not that I ve ever been there You know that feeling when you finish a book or a movie and you feel like something monumental has happened but nothing s happened to you All you did was watch a movie or read a book That s how I felt when I closed this book which is pretty amazing that Bray made me experience the book on its terms But this book isn t for everyone Just like you have to be in the right mood or the right person to appreciate Alice in Wonderland or The Wizard of Oz you have to be there to appreciate this For all my disdain at the swearing and my initial turn off to the character which ended up being necessary for what the book accomplishes I have to to say Wow That s a palindrome It s in the bookMinor Spoilers in my symbolism happy analysisview spoilerLet s start with some of that social satire Bray criticizes the brainwashing of religious cults consumerism and a society of instant gratification in one swoop with CESSNAB I kept thinking this must be a mingled acronym for something else but can t find anything in those letters I think this was my favorite detour The criticism was pretty self explanatory especially library girl s speech about censorshipBray also takes on our obsession with celebrities and extreme reality TV with the YA Party House in a section that reeks of spring break on MTV She shows what people will do for a little screen time of under the pressure of a cheering crowd I loved her bits about the travel gnomes and Vikings not that Vikings are commentary about society but it was sure amusing and Balder s uest proves foreshadowing of Cameron s uestI found parallels to the government s fear and oversight after 911 with the United Snow Globe Wholesalers especially their FBI wardrobe and speech about terrorists And Bray manages to criticize tacky knick knack souvenirs in the process Plus she takes on tabloid news and how much news gives rise to panic instead of information I loved the employee stuff too how impersonal corporate America has become A lot of social satire packed into every storylineThere s commentary on celebrity fundraisers that nobody knows what for with the Big Benefit Concert for Peace but Against Non Peace and People Generally Being Not Nice I loved the Copenhagen International sections What is the real meaning of The Seven Ways to Say Snow or any of those seemingly deep lyrics to big bands that everyone loves and sings along to without getting I loved how the band tied into the uantum physics with Dr X had a theory that certain musical freuencies could open up portals in the fabric of time and space Something about the vibrations He believed that music was in fact its own dimension Music also gives another underlying theme which ironically comes from the music he loves to mock To live is to love to love is to liveSome of my favorite moments had to do with humor about physics uantum physics has a problem of major gravity and The Theory of Everything Plus a Little Bit More Stephen Hawking humor I love how Bray uses bathroom pot talk to unveil an underlying theme in the book with Shroeder s cat without looking in the box one cannot know if the cat is dead or alive and therefore both possibilities exist And even how she used the Road Runner cartoon to show the concept of alternative universes that behind every door is a different possibility and who s to say which one is realThere s a whole lot of symbolism in the book dressed up in that meaningless adventure My favorite one is the Disney World e ticket keeping him alive The book starts with this line The best day of my life happened when I was five and almost died at Disney World Isn t that one of the best lines ever It is that memory all of his memories and his capability to think that keep him alive and give him existence Besides how could a book of social satire in America not be pivoted around the happiest place on earth that is real to children but not realThere s a whole lot with Dr X too did anyone catch that Dr Specialist s name was Dr Xavier When I read that he was searching for Dr X I couldn t help thinking about Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where they re looking for the X and low and behold they re standing on it That the X that marks the spot Cameron s mission is with him the entire time He just had to find it within himselfThen there s the Wizard of Reckoning You can go into the whole there s nothing to fear but fear itself and how the only people we have to reckon with in the end is ourselves I found it interesting that he was dressed as a combination of a knight and a space age astronaut a redressing of Don uixote as a modern telling I did find it disrespectful to talk down the great Don uixote with some of her slang and the f word The only class Bray takes the time to go into detail about is the discussion of that book Is Don uixote mad or is the world that embraces these ideals mad More foreshadowing of an underlying theme of the book Everything in the beginning seems random but it all ties together in Cameron s mission because there is no seemingly random Things like Phantasos on the Mardi Gras parade We are weary travelers trying to find our way home on a road that never ends Am I part of your dream Or are you but a part of mine The Wishing Tree that grants the essence of a wish The Star Fighter movies that every kid memorizes because he wants to be the hero of a great adventure The snow globes where the only way to have a perfect unaltered life is not to live but be trapped in a glass cage The Road Runner cartoons with the coyote always chasing something he cannot reach and the episode with the doors of endless possibilities Balder on a uest to find something that isn t there Gonzo so afraid to get sick and die that he doesn t experience anything The old lady across the hall who wants beauty when she dies And Dulcie who represents the message she can t tell Cameron because he has to find out for himself and when he does that meaning she as the message is his rewardI am in most awe that Bray breaks a cardinal rule of YA fiction especially first person YA and it works Just in case you clicked on the spoiler tag but still haven t read the book I won t say what it is but if you ve read it you should know what about talking about with the ending It works because you don t like pre mad cow Cameron but on this journey he discovers himself and becomes a likable person so you re rooting for that Cameron I like the Cameron that meets Dulcie and decides to live instead of sneer at life I loved how the ending brought his world around full circle back to Disney World and gave life to that existential moment of his youth when he realized life is all a charade The symbolism amazed me hide spoiler Nine and a Half Weeks A Memoir of a Love Affair ve ever been there You know that feeling when you finish a book or a movie and you feel like something monumental has happened but nothing s happened to you All you did was watch a movie or read a book That s how I felt when I closed this
