C'est un thriller borderline à mon avis, pas votre écriture de voyage typique. Je m'attendais à un compte rendu exagéré des frivoles escapades de deux diplômés universitaires en Chine nouvellement ouverte. Bien qu'il y ait eu définitivement des frivoles frivoles, j'ai apprécié les descriptions vives de la culture, des paysages et des personnages. À partir des deux premiers chapitres, vous avez l'impression qu'il se passe quelque chose d'étrange, mais vous ne comprenez pas pleinement la gravité de la situation avant les 20 dernières pages environ. Le livre est un tourneur de pages mais légèrement obsédant. Après l’expérience de voyage indépendante extrême de Gillman en Chine, je suis heureux qu’elle ait le courage de continuer à parcourir le monde; Je ne sais pas ce que j'aurais fait.

I didn't like this book at all. If anything I think the story is completely immoral and it seems to me like the author doesn't have the talent required to make that kind moraly wrong tale read like a good piece of writing. A big disapointement!

Not sure what to say about Ortega y Gasset other than that he's a conspicuous elitist, without necessarily being aristocratic or absolutely class-conscious in his elitism; the mass-man is the self-satisfied man, the man who doesn't look beyond himself for meaning or challenge (shades of Lukacs' "transcendental homelessness") -- which is a state of affairs that comes about through the brute fact of plenitude: more people enjoying more goods as their rights (rather than as fruits of their own struggle). Not sure entirely if this will be useful to think about in terms of crowd-theory, but I guess it's nice to see the seething resentment of the crowd in Le Bon become an articulated hope for the coming war with the mass in Ortega y Gasset. (And doesn't that old-style aristo naming convention already makes Jose seem multiple?)
