    (PDF/EPUB) [北京植物人] ☆ Ma Jian SUMMARY í FINDARTICLES.CO ´ Ma Jian A book told from the stundent's point of view of the tianenmen square massacre. It's told retrospectively from a comatose students point of view and slips between his life and mind in the coma and his fatelful tale of those last few weeks before the massacre took place. It gets a little boring in the middle i should say but is stunning in the last 200 pages. Ma Jian has a interesting way of describing things i

Ma Jian ´ 1 CHARACTERS SUMMARY í FINDARTICLES.CO ´ Ma Jian FREE READ 北京植物人 Ng University As the minute by minute chronicling of the lead up to his shooting becomes ever intense the reader is caught in a gripping emotional journey where the boundaries between life and death are increasingly blurre. There are three major periods of Beijing upheaval in this amazing novel and Dai Wei survives them all first Chairman Mao s Cultural Revolution then the crackdown at Tiananmen Suare and finally the beautification of Beijing for its Olympic bid which brings his mother s housing complex to rubble around him Through all of this turmoil Dai Wei is ever the observer watching as the Cultural Revolution wreaks havoc on his parents marriage as his friends orchestrate the protests at Tiananmen Suare and as his mother struggles in vain to remain in her home He is in this regard an omniscient third person narrator allowing us a snapshot of many characters lives as he witnesses the conversations deaths romantic encounters and psychological struggles that defined these periods in recent Chinese historyWe encounter characters who are of sound body and deadened mind and vice versa No one however escapes with both body and mind intact Of particular interest is Dai Wei s mother who devotes her entire life to caring for his comatose body His mind however is sharp as he travels the neural pathways of his own history and somatic systems Even with eyes closed and body immobilized he can sense his mother s frustration and despair After she is arrested for her participation in a peaceful Falun Gong demonstration and her would be lover Master Yao is imprisoned she returns as broken as Dai Wei s friends after Tiananmen She wishes her comatose son dead so that she can have some semblance of a life but ultimately finds herself echoing the student demonstrators she once so vehemently opposed Down with Fascism The inclination to be free Ma Jian insinuates is innate regardless of ideology and generation Few novels have driven home for me the horrors of the Cultural Revolution as vividly as this one despite its focus on Tiananmen Suare Ma slips in some harrowing eye popping anecdotes about Red Guard brutality and inhumanity Of course the main event in this book is the unjustifiable brutality against peaceful student demonstrators

A REVOLUTIONARY GOVERNMENT SHOULD LISTEN TO THE VOICE OF THE PEOPLE NOTHING SHOULD FRIGHTEN IT MORE THAN SILENCE In a little less than a week comes the 28th anniversary of the Tiananmen Suare Massacre It would be an interesting calculation to add the ones who want to remember and subtract the ones who want everyone to forget and divide all that by those who think it wasn t important and multiply by those who would die for the sake of continuing the aborted effort if they were only given the chance to know about it This isn t the only government cover up or the only slaughter of students by their own nation or even the only novel written about such things but the event and this book written about it might both be the most well known of their respective infamous categories Irony irony History does it best Mou Sen had told me that if you didn t read Kafka you d never grasp the underlying principles of biologyJust think the literal meaning of the Chinese characters for revolution is elimination of life Much as I love Les Mis rables in some parts it s merely an ancestor of the theatrics masuerading as social justice movements currently running through the aisles of young adult new adult and various movie theaters If you compared Beijing Coma to LM on a superficial level you could get away with listing out pages spend on methodologies on justice the protagonist doing their own thing in a limited away outside of the main event of students versus the state and the wide variety of examples of the brutality corruption and executions that a nation was capable of inflicting on its people However unlike the story that birthed a musical there is no redemption here and even less sentimentality This isn t the first book of Jian s I ve read and where his first work of short stories threw me off due to a combination of incomprehension and a less than lush translated writing style here the narrative s vitality is conveyed precisely because it does nothing to rise above the petty details that compose large scale moral action committed by the public He was in the library reading up on the American Constitution It s a bit late for that now isn t it This is Tiananmen Suare There are hundreds of thousands of students and residents here fighting for democracy It s reckless of you to speak like this Our narrator is a prime encapsulation of a less than gripping narrative his noble moments are than eualed by his usual banal thoughts about women sex opportunistic money making schemes and the sort of wildly outlandish dream building characteristic of college students However the fact that he and the rest of the characters are rather nondescript in their suabbles over power and brief moments of revolutionary action does not merit what happens to them Crushed by tanks rendered comatose slaughtered regardless of whether they are a molotov toting radicals or ten year old children again this is not the first time such an incident has occurred in history and will not be the last if those who sit in the seats of power continue on their merry way and I m not referring to those in non White People lands Nearly six hundred pages of writing that is necessary rather than engaging takes its toll but I m pleased to see the rating is at a healthy level despite this The heaven you yearned for is no an epitaph carved on a gravestoneIn these rooms both life and death appear sordid and banal You could get angry if you like The situation hasn t been resolved within adeuate ethical measures nearly three decades on and reading this will do nothing but give you the intricacies if you re confident about parsing the nonfiction from the fiction Jian was involved with the democracy movements around this time but whether he was at Tiananmen Suare at the moment of infamy is not something I m willing to judge However if you bear in mind fellow unresolved issues such as repatriation of the land to the indigenous nations of the Americas or reimbursement to descendants of slaves the world over this one is much younger and involved far fewer lives This isn t an attempt to smooth things over in any way but a simple acknowledgment that the ways in which the world is fucked up are many and getting attached to any one of them is exhausting It s why The Hunger Games made bank and NoDAPL made suat and why being nice means shit to me Criticize my tone when I m deconstructing your bigoted hate and I ll demand to know who s paying you Mabel said that when people march through the streets in America no one bothers to stop and look Perhaps living in a country like that would be even worse
