    As a New Year treat I spent yesterday evening and NYE evening reading again It is still frighteningly prevalent and I hope as the novel ends the West becomes a logical and less emotionally pathetic placeIt's a real shame Hartley is dead I would have loved to be able to tell him just how important this book has become in my lifeCheers all to a happy new reading year I am obsessed with this book I think LP Hartley might

    This is the most forthright examination of envy referred to in the book as Bad E or Bad Egg Euality is Good E in all of English literature It takes place in a future inspired if that is the word by the positive mania for euality of Britain's Labor Government in the 1950s Envy in Hartley's dystopia is managed not

    Written in the 1950s and set in a dystopian future this was an interesting read a world apart from L P Hartley's famous work The Go Between I particularly enjoyed the location Cambridge and the Fens and the development of the main character Jael as she grows in confidence and takes matters into her own hands Hartley deals with several issues that still apply to our 21st century world not least of which egalitarianism

    This dystopian novel by LP Hartley is surprising and maintains relevance for today's world for instance the growth of social media has led to some people aiming at the same particular look My favourite section of the story was the trip to Ely; this was a highlight and had a suggestion of pagan responses to the

    I recently bought a copy of this off a Cambridge street vendor and only partially because the title sounds a bit skeezyThe story is about Jael 97 a woman whose alpha ranked looks have caused enough envy among her peers to make her consider having an artificial beta face fitted Her post World War III society is governed by a mysterious dictator whose seemingly arbitrary commands seem intended to keep everyone eual in mediocrity When one of

    A semi interesting but plodding and sometimes confusing dystopian novel about conformity imposed upon society by a mysterious dictator after the near extinction of the human race after World War III Making it into a short story would have been sufficient and would have made it interesting and palatable by getting rid of the dross It actually picks up a bit in the second half of the book and a surprise ending m

    Time has not served this novel well It is of an essay on the period it was written than a true post apocalptic novel and it reads poorly Interesting insights are built up and then flounder or are put aside for no particular reason The disjointed plot is bogged down by statements and uestions which advance nothing other than speculation Jael the main character undergoes a curious personal ignominy which never really feels relevant to the f

Facial Justice

E been the cause of discontent among other women and she has considered having a beta second grade face fitted But this affront to her ego stirs her rebellious spirit and she begins the struggle to reassert the rights of the individua.

Summary ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ L.P. Hartley

The dystopian society that emerges after World War Three is based on a collective sense of guilt Citizens of this new world officially labelled 'delinuents' by their Dictator are named after murderers and are obliged to wear sackcloth. An interesting dystopian novel based around an idea of everybody being eual nobody looking above their station and attempting to eradicate envy or Bad E Parts of the eradication is by formalising standards of peoples faces mainly women and follows the main character through this world At times brutal and incredibly well written the world is claustrophobic and creepy It was enjoyable to read although seemed to lack something that I can t put my finger on Certainly one for fans of dystopian fiction

review Facial Justice

And ashes Individualism is stamped out Privilege which might arouse envy is energetically discouraged Thus it is no surprise to find Jael 97 reporting to the Ministry of Facial Justice Being facially overprivileged her good looks hav. Written in the 1950s and set in a dystopian future this was an interesting read a world apart from L P Hartley s famous work The Go Between I particularly enjoyed the location Cambridge and the Fens and the development of the main character Jael as she grows in confidence and takes matters into her own hands Hartley deals with several issues that still apply to our 21st century world not least of which egalitarianism leading to the dumbing down of culture the power of fashion and the control of women by men This is a great book for book clubs it will definitely stimulate discussion I recommend reading the Penguin Modern Classics edition for the introduction which provides fascinating insights into the author what a ghastly man and the novel
