I wanted my own words But the ones I use have been dragged through I don t know how many consciences Jean Paul Sartre, The Wall My focus is on one of the book s title piece The Wall This existentialist story has the feel of a film shot in stark black and white the prose is as hard boiled as it gets and is told in first person The opening scene takes place in a large bare room with white walls where the narrator, Pablo Ibbieta, a man we can visualize with a thin, chiseled face, slick back hair an [...]
You gotta love Sartre s sexy objectification of women I totally think Sartre was an ass man Exempli gratia Her tail is small, yes, a lot smaller than mine, but you can see of it It s all around, under her thin back, it fills the skirt, you d think it was poured in, and besides it jiggles Hell is other people other people who can t appreciate a nice jiggling booty If Sartre was alive today, I m sure he d give that comment a high five or whatever the French existensialist equivalent of that is ma [...]

If I had to pick a single common theme in the five short stories compiled in this book it would have to be self actualization Of course Sartre s self actualization not only differs from the eastern Atman and Buddhi, it damn near opposes them Each short story portrays the protagonist s confrontation with the utter absurdity of life and each protagonist refuses the prepackaged gift wrapped souls that they ve been handed through choosing a divergent path of their own Some through wreaking havoc, so [...]
Oh you know those whacky existentialists just a typical beach read, really Early chick lit Love the stories, they are colorful and fairly realistic in the way they depict the ridiculous, repetitive or futile behaviors people exhibit other peeps, not me, of course I m guessing that Sartre must have been hella good times at cocktail parties Wonder who would have won in a death match between Jean Paul, Al Camus and lil Freddie Nietzsche I m betting Nietzsche, he was uber efficient.

Such a philosopher of existentialism, I was thrown into an existential crisis after screwing the short story The wall from the namesake book what I got from it is that We are not allowed to be clean, whether dead or alive.
Damp hands creeping all over my body that would be the sensation accompanying me during the read of The Wall by Sartre In fiction, I don t mind an atmosphere that is oppressive, helpless, absurd or anxious, as is the case in this short story collection The curious side of me is often than not bewitched by the subject of human unhappiness Unhappiness that stems from a realization, that our own existence has a pettiness to it Even so, these stories weren t able to truly fascinate me on a deeper l [...]
