Time Snake and Superclown Reviews

    Probably a minor classic, but certainly not for everyone.This book has a reputation on the internet.After it was called "the most demented book of all time" and "one of the weirdest SF books ever". I was expecting something totally crazy.But, Time Snake and Superclown is not actually totally weird...Ok, the main character does get his face turned into a clown mask and many of the scenes and transitions are bizarre and dreamlike. The setting in particular defies definition - perhaps I could call it a kind of non-linear holographic earth.But the structure of the thing is actually relatively conventional, as is the prose, as are many of the motifs and themes employed. (e.g. first contact with the alien, man's evolution away from violence, etc.) A large part of it consists of chasing an elusive and entrancing female character - male gaze activated. Hardly breaking new ground there.In structure the book is a sort of Sci-Fi equivalent of twist-thriller movies like Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo or Brad Anderson's The Machinist, with perhaps some David Lynch elements thrown in. As in the aforementioned films, practically nothing makes sense until you are nearly at the end of the story. And even then, much ambiguity remains. You may be doomed to reread. King went to art school and I thought of this when encountering tedious levels of detail in some of scenes as well as a reference to "Cubistic" art. It contains vivid images too. Comprehension isn't a big problem. The vocabulary is small, and the book specific words ("lightskin", "The Zone", "The Watcher", etc) are used so often that their meaning can be grasped within 3 chapters.There are only 4 characters, and I suppose you could call it a psychological novel.I'll admit I found the book frustrating, and I was considering only 3 stars until I came to the ending. Thank goodness for the ending because the story is confusing to say the least.In conclusion, despite what the title suggests, this is not a joke book to laugh at like the diary of an LSD tripper. I was initially disappointed that it wasn't more fun but instead I found an original but difficult minor SF classic.

    This has the reputation of being the most demented SF novel ever written. The reputation is deserved. For the first couple of chapters I had no idea what was happening. Neither did the narrator. Then the plot gradually emerged, and it goes like this (at least, I think it does): in the far future, the human race expanded into the far reaches of space but there encountered an alien presence so terrifying that a very fast withdrawal was made. As a defensive measure, human history was folded around itself, so that time became a ring, and everyone who ever existed did so again, and again, and again, repeating their actions ad infinitum. Beyond this, there was established “the Zone,” a buffer between “strobing” history and the universe. This is maintained by the Watchers, who are able to slip in and out of history at any point. The unnamed narrator is one such Watcher. At the start of the story he encounters a woman who possesses powers he doesn’t understand, foremost among them being the ability to recognise him for what he is. To humiliate him (for reasons that are initially far from clear), she robs him of his trousers and permanently shapes his face into that of a clown with a red nose that loudly honks at inconvenient moments. Despite this setback, he pursues her, realising that the aliens are attacking the Zone and she has his two Keys to Ordnance, which he needs to activate the defences. For much of the novel, this pursuit consists of one dreamlike scene after another, with few of them making much sense to the reader or to the protagonist. It’s all very confusing, everything is (purposely) vague, the four nameless characters aren’t wholly sane, and the writing is punctuated by an average of ten ellipses per page. If that sounds bad, it’s not; the novel is actually quite entertaining, if very disorienting, and keeps the reader hooked with the hope that surely—surely!—this must all mean something, that there will be explanations at some point. Well, there are, right at the end, and the big reveal justifies everything that went before. Once the secret is out and the last page is turned, you’ll probably have a strong urge to re-read the whole thing again, this time with the knowledge required to make sense of it. However, for me, there are too many novels and not enough time, so I don’t think I’ll be tackling this one again for a while. It was an interesting experience, though, and I’m in agreement with those who claim it to be a minor classic. There’s not really anything else like it.

    3.5/5. I'll admit, I bought this book for the title. I assumed I was going to be reading about the adventures of two crazy characters called Time Snake and Superclown as they booted around in space, but I was totally wrong on that assumption. This book is dark, confusing, and gritty. The main character is a mystery from the start - you begin thinking he's got some anti-social disorder but you end up with a completely different assessment at the end. And seemingly absurd concepts, like the main character's obsession with the lady of the novel, which make no sense at the start, make more sense at the end. In truth, I really liked the novel - it was different and definitely not some fluffy sci-fi (like Mirror Friend, Mirror Foe I read recently), but it was a little too descriptive and I could have done with a little more explanation instead - there were parts where I was completely confused, but in a bad way, not in an intentional, mimetic-to-the-character's situation way. It would be interesting to re-read the book knowing what I know now, but I'm not sure if I would bother. Maybe in a decade or so. it's a good read, overall. It's NOT a light read, by any means though - you have to work a bit to get into it.

    I guess this book had some cool parts, but overall, it's a lot of the narrator being really oblivious to what is quite obviously going on, and repeating himself A LOT... with ellipses tossed in... at random... seemingly. So I can't say I'd recommend this book to anyone. Even for the camp factor, or the few bits of weirdness scattered throughout. It's just too tedious a read.
