It's definitely not humans anyway I refuse to believe that Moral of the story haha if nobody listens to you when you're trying to share something important perhaps consumerism? go talk to Bongo She's a great listener

Tenacious baby elk named BongoBut over time others are attracted to their simple way of life Doppler is joined by his young son who uickly goes into daytime television withdrawal Düsseldorf a depressed miniature soldier enthusiast sets up camp nearby and is followed by an obnoxious right wing dog walk So if a man decides to leave his family and move out in the forest I immediately assume that there’s something wrong with him? What does that say about me? Yes I know he just lost his father and then fell on his bike and hit his head but still when reading a book which is a critiue of our modern consumer culture it feels strange to realize that I buy so completely into that culture that I can’t even see it as a valuable life choice And yes I wrote ‘buy into’ deliberatelyDoppler leaves his wife and two children because he is sick and tired of being nice he doesn’t want the only focus in his life to be how much money he makes He want a simpler life Or maybe he had a concussion and is having a breakdown because his father died This is never clear He feels lucky to have hit his head and realized the wrongness of his ways – but whether this is a sudden moral clearness or a brain damage is up to the reader to decide To be fair it’s not really hinted that it could be something wrong with him the author probably intends it as an awakeningBut the fact is Doppler lives in a tent in a forrest just on the edge of Oslo and to sustain himself he steals from the nearby houses – and he kills an elk This elk turns out to be a mother to a young calf and so Doppler ends up adopting a calf which he names Bongo ‘I’ll call the calf Bongo after my father I decide as I’m strolling back into the forrest Even though my father wasn’t called Bongo I’ll name the calf Bongo after him Sometimes you’ve got to be open to associations of this kind’ p 32 33Doppler and Bongo build a close relationship – at least that’s the way Doppler relates it to us They play games they have long talks they pee together and just hang out Even though Doppler thinks Bongo is a bit thick since he doesn’t uite understand even the simplest games he still loves him They build a sort of father son relationship which is obvious since Doppler just lost his father – but strange since he has a young son at home missing him This is not the only father son relationship His son eventually joins him in the forrest and Doppler also meets a man who spends his time recreating the part of World War II where his father lost his life And inspired by this Doppler decides to build a totem pole to honor his father; a pole which seems to honor the idea of a father and fatherhood than the man who was Doppler’s father Maybe because Doppler didn’t really know himThis novel focuses on one man’s struggle to find himself in a world that doesn’t focus all that much on introspection It is difficult for him to find peace in the forest since he gets company soon both from other people and from his young son Maybe also because he didn’t really leave civilization all that far behind Maybe the novel is intended to show us that we are really not capable of living this way any?It is uirky in a lot of ways and there were parts of it I really liked For instance his annoyance with children shows’ theme songs He actually ends up giving his son’s DVDs away to a robber one night – what parent haven’t imagined that? Maybe even dreamed of that?Another part shows him being annoyed with the Ira war because it comes at a time where he is focused on redecorating the bath room ‘I remember being irritated when I discovered that now we would also have to take a stance on this war It was very distracting As if it wasn’t enough to have to decide on all this bathroom stuff Now we would have to take sides in Ira I didn’t like things going on in the world which in effect reduced what I used my brainpower on to trivia Not only did I not have my perspectives clarified but I didn’t want them to be For weeks it had irritated me that they couldn’t wait to start the bombing down there until we had finished doing up the bathroom’ p 22 I love this uote and it shows something very true about our way of life I think That we are fine thinking about the troubles other places in the world as long as it doesn’t interfere with our own daily livesBut with all that being said I was a little disappointed in this book I had expected something funnier and uirkier uirky in particular With that cover that subject I had expected something that would leave me with a lot of food for thoughts and ideas for other ways to see the world and our society our materialistic culture But I didn’t feel like I got it and in the end I felt I was kind of left hanging like what you get is a short series of impressions with a rather clear beginning but not so much of a clear ending I’m not sure how I would have liked it to end – but what I got wasn’t enough
