    J.G. Ballard
    James Graham J G Ballard 15 November 1930 19 April 2009 was an English novelist, short story writer, and essayist Ballard came to be associated with the New Wave of science fiction early in his career with apocalyptic or post apocalyptic novels such as The Drowned World 1962 , The Burning World 1964 , and The Crystal World 1966 In the late 1960s and early 1970s Ballard focused on an eclectic variety of short stories or condensed novels such as The Atrocity Exhibition 1970 , which drew closer comparison with the work of postmodernist writers such as William S Burroughs In 1973 the highly controversial novel Crash was published, a story about symphorophilia and car crash fetishism the protagonist becomes sexually aroused by staging and participating in real car crashes The story was later adapted into a film of the same name by David Cronenberg.While many of Ballard s stories are thematically and narratively unusual, he is perhaps best known for his relatively conventional war novel, Empire of the Sun 1984 , a semi autobiographical account of a young boy s experiences in Shanghai during the Second Sino Japanese War as it came to be occupied by the Japanese Imperial Army Described as The best British novel about the Second World War by The Guardian, the story was adapted into a 1987 film by Steven Spielberg.The literary distinctiveness of Ballard s work has given rise to the adjective Ballardian , defined by the Collins English Dictionary as resembling or suggestive of the conditions described in J G Ballard s novels and stories, especially dystopian modernity, bleak man made landscapes and the psychological effects of technological, social or environmental developments The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography entry describes Ballard s work as being occupied with eros, thanatos, mass media and emergent technologies.

    This mordant mystery novella by science fiction writer J.G Ballard is only a mystery because the hideous crime at its core is the product of a socially unbearable evil The thirty two adults of the affluent enclave of Pangbourne Village have been brutally murdered, but their thirteen children visible in the security footage up to the moment camera cords were cut have disappeared from the scene Could the children have been kidnapped If so, why has there been no ransom demand Oruld there be some ot [...]

    In a totally sane society, madness is the only freedom This quote from Running Wild succinctly sums up the sentiments of this slim novel.At what first reads like a rather dry police procedural centered around a seemingly impossible to solve mass murder at a gated community, the impending twist is that THERE IS NO TWIST and once the protagonist figures out the details, the narrative shifts focus into a psychosocial exploration as the the nature and reasoning of the unlikely perpetrator s I am no [...]

    This is an odd little book when compared to Ballard s other work In this region of the country it is kind of a hard title to find, and both times that I have seen it in used stores it has been priced for collectors for me that means over 12ah, i m a cheapskate It is also very short, clocking in at just over a hundred pages.For those who are unfamiliar with Ballard, he had a fascination with what he called invisible literature This is best described as documents written for a specific purpose oth [...]

    Read this today riding back from Chicago There are nods to both the procedural form as well as a fairy tale There is a massacare of all the adults at a gated community outside of Reading All of the children are missing A psychologist from the Home Office investigates the murder kidnapping and explores the estate, itself a community of isolated sanity The protagonist later concludes that within such, madness is the only freedom Ballard succeeds again in casting an eerie hue on the mechanisms of o [...]

    I loved this book So weird and disturbing.Ballard is my favourite author but I prefer his short stories to his novels generally, but this is an exception to that rule.

    As with the other Ballards I ve read the only mystery is that of motive I like his subversion of mystery tropes in the service of cautionary aims.

    This isn t really a novel, a novella And not really a novella but a true crime story with less of a narrative than, say, In Cold Blood And not really a true crime story but a shaggy dog where the punchline seems to be And then they try to kill Margaret Thatcher Ballard sets up a murder mystery which even a lightweight like myself can figure out from the beginning There is really only one possible solution, barring something supernatural sci fi, so when it becomes apparent that the obvious solut [...]

    Era da tanto che volevo leggere Ballard, autore in cui mi imbatto ogni volta che butto un occhio nella sezione fantascienza di qualsiasi libreria E cavolo se non dovevo farlo prima e se non comprer sicuramente altri libri di quest uomo.Un gioco da bambini un libro incredibilmente breve 92 pagine, stampate su carta spessissima per farlo sembrare un po pi corposo cos breve che la domanda sorge spontanea ce la pu fare, in cos poco spazio, a raccontare tutto A mio avviso s , anche se in modo un po a [...]

    At the heart of this book is a compelling insight into the consequences of living a false life, eliminating any element of human experience that might be messy, unpredictable, inconvenient any element that doesn t conform to superficially defined perfection The crime that carries the plot is interesting, but the real horror in this novella is what happens to young, developing humans who are cut off from reality who live in a state of sensory deprivation Ballard describes these young people as pr [...]

    I feel like Ballard does for psychology what classical science fiction writers do for concepts taken from the hard science He takes a situation that highlights a certain psychogical effect in the case of this book, the effect of so called helicopter or rigorously involved parenting on the mental health of their children and paints an extreme scenario where this condition drives the affected characters to excess In Running Wild, he documents in clinical, clear eyed detail the mental degradation o [...]

    This one felt like Ballard s heart wasn t in it His fascination with upper class housing being a trap from which rich people can only escape through violence is an interesting one, but here the tone of the story changes too often and Ballard gives the details in such a flat way there s no way to invest in the story I love the idea of children revolting at the idea of overly precious parents, but there s probably a better way to tell it than this I m still waiting for a book to match High Rise I [...]

    Not a great book, saved from itself by its brevity.

    Racconto lungo del buon James, sempre sulle sue corde, quelle dell alienazione sociale e del disadattamento esistenziale Un maestro del genere distopico moderno, ma, nonostante io sia un suo grande fan, questo libro non lo annovero tra i suoi capolavori Piuttosto tirato per i capelli il movente, nonostante, ripeto, siamo in una Inghilterra distopica, quasi surreale Lettura godibile, a maggior ragione perch si legge in un paio d ore.
