I liked this book by Noah Cicero. The words all have meaning that my brain can process. After I read the words I feel emotions.

I liked this book by Noah Cicero. Each sentence makes me feel emotion. Aug 06, 2017 Alejandro Saint-Barthélemy rated it really liked it. Shelves: xxi, treasures, purges-of-the-heart, usa. I like this book very much (which I've read this very year and being an European living in China, so it being about Bush and from 2003 doesn't make it outdated nor limited).

A The Human War, com a Best Behavior, la veu pròpia de Cicero té tan protagonisme, tanta força, que ho col·lapsa tot. Hi ha veus pròpies engolades. Veus pròpies autosatisfetes, orgulloses, rebuscades i ampul·loses. Veus contentíssimes d’haver-se conegut. La de Cicero no és així. s un torrent de veu insolent i desestructur Fa pocs dies, algú em diferenciava els autors que tenen una veu pròpia dels que, simplement, no la tenen. No sé si la distinció és fàcil de fer. En tot cas, Noah Cicero té veu pròpia.

The Human War. 28 April 2016 ·. Poem by Noah Cicero.

A terse, polemical and often violent book that follows Mark, a disaffected American everyman, through the trailer parks, bedrooms, dive bars and strip joints of humdrum Youngstown, Ohio during the final two hours leading up to the dawn of America's supposed 'War on Terror. America's finest literary pariah? You bet"-Dazed & Confused. This alarmingly well written book is a new voice that has rankled more than enough people back home in America.

The monkeys will break out of their cages at the local zoo and take us over. Then there will be the monkey wars. Because Russia will sell helicopters to the monkey warriors. We will all die. It’ll be great.

'The Human War' is a bleak, disturbing tale of one man's struggle with war, death and the human condition, shot through with the author's deadpan humour.

The Human War by Noah Cicero was a very absorbing book, one of the books you want to savor but can't tear yourself away from. The title story, "The Human War" is about an American named Mark as he spends his night in Youngstown, Ohio thinking and talking to people about the Iraq War, which is expected to start at midnight. He talks with his family, his girlfriend, a Vietnam vet/pacifist, his friend Jimmy and others. Very philosophical and visceral. Lots of dialogue and deep thoughts on war, sex, violence, civilization and being human. Funny, too. Absurd. The other two stories, "The Doomed" and "Little Flowers" hold up as well.
I read this book in less than 2 days, which is fast for my standards. Reminded me of Samuel Beckett and Sam Pink and Tao Lin and James Frey. If you like these authors this book is definitely worth checking out.

If you think sentences--single sentences. You know the type: unmarried, lonesome, etc-- describe a particular aspect of the core of your being, then you're in luck because Cicero delves right into the problem of trying to get you to disagree with yourself in that those sentences really hate you.

The Human War is one of my favorite books. The novella describes one person's reaction to the beginning of the war in Iraq, and is written in short, to-the-point sentences, each on their own lines, which, along with the content, creates a powerful portrait of a poor, existentially distraught Ohioan's thoughts and actions in the context of American absurdity and absurdity in general. I remember reading this book in high school and feeling excited that a book like this exists. It is smart, funny, relatable, and enjoyable to read.

The book also contains two short stories at the end, which I liked a lot.

I highly recommend this book.

This book seemed to me kind of coming of age book, when you first realize in your 20's that there are bad things in the world and you can do nothing to stop them, you feel helpless and you must keep living normally one way or another.
I really liked the conversational style with various people who have very different backgrounds and have different relationships with the author.

The problem and the huge turn off for me was the author wishes that he wasn't so "smart" and hadn't read so many books so he wouldn't think too much. He categorizes the people as "stupid" when they have different opinion than his own. Normally it would be OK but he talks about this too much all over the book.

Overall, this book may be worthwhile for the people who are in their beginning of the 20's.

Otherwise, it was a waste of time for me.

Imagine if Sartre and de Beauvoir battled it out on The Jerry Springer Show, and you get an idea what reading this book is like. Noah Cicero is one of the most amazing voices in fiction I've ever discovered. Remember the first time you read Bukowski, Miller, or Ginsberg's HOWL? Reading this book was like that for me: it just riveted me to the back of my seat and made me shake my head in wonder.

Noah's great innovation is the "sentegraph": prose so clipped that each line becomes poetry; the perfect obverse of "vers libre" poets who simply write prose with irregular line breaks. Noah comes screaming from the rust belt hell of Youngstown, Ohio, but don't expect just another sad-sack, Harvey Pekar type of artist: Cicero is young, brilliant, fearless, and completely original. He hangs out in Denny's and goes to strip bars and, in this book--written on the eve of the Gulf War II--rages against war and politics and the horror and emptiness the eve of war has caused him.

I cannot recommend this book highly enough. I hope this has helped.
The Human War is a really good book. it is easy to read. it is funny and also insightful but never in a way that seems like the author is trying too hard. the book is about an individual's experience during the beginning of the war in iraq. probably my favorite thing about it, is that it doesn't try to define the war, or the situation or anything universal. the book examines one person's reaction, as he talks to other individuals. the end result is that nothing is determined, and each person must go on living as a single person, while things like war, absurdity, and interpersonal relationships threaten to discover the meaninglessness of life. i recommend this for fans of sartre, bukowski, and heidegger.
