Facsímil Free download ¾ 109 Nswerable and often absurd It offers a new kind of reading experience one where the reader participates directly in the creation of meaning Full of humor melancholy and anger Multiple Choice is about love and family; privacy and the limits of closeness; how a society is affected by the legacies of the past; and the conviction that rather than learning to think we are trained to obey and repeat Serious in its literary ambition but playful in its execution Multiple Choice confirms Alejandro Zambra as one of the most important writers working in any language. Multiple Choice is a one of a kind read in the best possible way Chilean author Alejandro Zambra innovatively styled his new book after the Chilean Academic Aptitude Test which students took every December from 1967 to 2003 if they planned to apply to college in Chile Specifically he chose the Verbal Aptitude section as he took it in 1993 which consisted of ninety multiple choice uestions contained in five sections While each section of the book was fantastic in its own right my favorites were Section 2 and 3 Sentence Order and Sentence Completion As I spent time playing around with the answer choices and manipulating the sentences I ended up focusing so much on what he was saying and how he was saying it Long after I finished a section or put the book down for a bit I found myself still pondering what a particular uestionpassage meant or just the concept that rearranging sentences or choosing to delete a sentence or two can so dramatically change the meaning of a particular storyZambra tackles life family Chilean politics and how education often teaches people to repeat and obey versus learning to think independently Some uestions in Multiple Choice have multiple answers some have no answers and others have laugh out loud choices I learned about Chilean life under the brutal Pinochet regime but in such an engrossing manner that I hardly felt like I was being taught a history lesson His ruminations on family were particularly thought provoking and moving and several times I had to reread a certain passage before I felt I could move onI highly highly recommend this book It is certainly one of the best I have read in a long while I will be thinking about it for many days to come and most certainly rereading it in its entirety very soon Thanks so much to Penguin for my copy of this ARC in exchange for an honest review
