|Half autobiography, half shocking manifesto,
Pure Ideals, by Vinsfeld Rhadamanthus, lays out in detail
the formerly enigmatic plans and motives
of the brutal leader of Odessa, from before
his birth to his death on-board the Heimdal
Gazzo, and, thanks to the wonders of modern
Vinsfeld shows himself to be a commanding presence in the literary field, as well as on the battlefield. Mixing his tragic, disturbing life story and controversial politics with subtle humor and a creative use of grammar makes this work transcend the usual fate of a drab political tract. Often, it reads more like a really bad novel than a work of non-fiction!
Vinsfeld's perceptive nature is displayed by his amazing command of memory as far back as two and a half days before his conception, and continues throughout, setting up the central players of his life story with the kind of lurid, dramatic prose that only a hack novelist would dream of employing. His descriptions of glorious battle in the name of his Pure Ideals especially display the kind of gory detailism that will stand as his greatest contribution as an author.
The actual message of the work is suitably confused and imprecise, leaving us always surprised by the next twist or turn of this astonishing terrorist's Pure Ideals, especially when many of his actions, such as his equal opportunity hiring policy, often seem in stark contrast to the very intentions he purports to hold. This only serves to heighten the suspense.
The conclusion offers an insightful and wildly inaccurate portrait of typical unlife, and how this new phase of existence has affected the Pure Ideals of Vinsfeld Rhadamanthus.
No matter what, this is a book that demands to be read, and it can be yours for the low, low price of 500 Gella, plus shipping and handling. Earlier plans to release signed first editions proved impractical, since Vinsfeld no longer has physical form.
