Top 3 surrealistic books

Books are the richest and widest storage of human knowledge, experience, and fantasy. Today you can easily find any book on the Internet, but what is better than a new book with freshly printed pages and the real adventure inside?

Books can share with us the experience of the humanity in the most sincere way. Reading makes us wise, intelligent and literate. Books let us think deeply and expand new horizons.

In the modern era, some people replace books with a computer, access to the Internet and, in some cases, even computer games. All the above mentioned can be used to escape the reality and to explore new, surrealistic worlds. But the thing is that modern people nearly forgot about the potential of the world of books. A book can take you anywhere you want, show you parallel universes and surprise you with a deep moral. The list below contains top 3 surrealistic books. Some of them are old, some new, but all must-read.

1. The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov

There are numerous Russian books under the label "must-read", but when it comes to surrealistic literature, the Master and Margarita written by Mikhail Bulgakov is a work of art. It tells the story about the Devil who comes to Moscow and, as a real Devil, makes a lot of troubles. The book is full of amazing characters and events and considered to be the classic of Russian literature of the 20th century.

2. The Sirens of Titan by Kurt Vonnegut

The main characters here presented here by a man and his dog, who get into a chrono-synclastic infundibulum where space and time are stretched. The book provides the alternative view on the Great Wall of China and the Kremlin, shown as the message from Tralfamadore, the society that tries to distort the whole human history.

3. Riddley Walker by Russell Hoban

The book tells the story about the world after a nuclear holocaust. It is written in a brilliantly fractured language and, for sure, was unjustly forgotten. Just give it a try and enjoy!

Surrealism in News Media

Surrealism is an issue that could be found almost anywhere in the sphere of popular culture.

Beginning from Salvador Dali who have depicted the fears of the World War in his paintings covering the misery and disgust under shiny colors, the tradition of ’glamouring’ the horrifying becomes more and more actual and up to date. But where those features could be found mostly? Apparently, in the news media.

The news making process has always been complex and multi stadia. Millions of people are occupied in creating news process. But are all those people professional? Do they always have proper education and skills to deliver news? Is the information provided by the news agencies always trustworthy? Well, I suppose, you already know the answer.

If you want to understand where does the news media go you have to refer to Doctor Who series, season 1, episode 7 ’Long game’. The far future of the human civilization is depicted there. All the plot is happening in the news station which is based on a satellite. There is only one news company which is monopolist in its scope and has full control on the process of news production and transmission. I really do not want to uncover all the mystery if you have never watched Doctor Who before. My main point is that there is always someone hiding behind the news. Someone, who has his own profit from the certain information delivered to all the ears of the world. People, who have watched the series perfectly understand what I mean. And what about those who have not watched them yet... Well, you really should, especially if you are interested in the modern surrealistic products.

You will never know which kind of reality is hidden under the bright picture on the TV or laptop screen. It is always vague and impossible to understand. Go to CNN, BBC or other news media and compare the style and type of information. Your mission is try to found out which is the message these companies give us. What do they want? What is their profit? What tools are they using to achieve their goals?

After you have answered these questions, write them down on a paper and put it on a place where you can always see it. On your fridge, for example. And don’t forget to read this paper aloud any time you here about ’breaking news’.

And do you know what is the most surrealistic about the news media? Most of the people will never know that they deal with surrealism.
