It has no clear narration. In a narration that switches between different languages yeah there's a lot of English,Hindi,etc , different forms of prose and poetry, different continents, different personalities and whatnot , never once are you bored. It takes more than bravery to publish such graphic content that too,in Tamil in the 80s. What's most disturbing about the most disturbing chapters of zero degrees is that they could easily be true.
Zero degrees explores the darkest spaces of the human mind in a not-so-clear narrative but the writing is on-your-face. It has the most beautiful poetry and the most gruesome tortures , it shows the most lovely forms of affection and most shocking expressions of lust. Only for the brave-hearted folks who could appreciate this different beast of a literature.
Mar 05, Sangeetha Ramachandran rated it did not like it Shelves: This would be one book I wanted to read for really a long time. There were warnings against it! Still whenever I check out any tamil books, I never failed to check its price or read its prologue. And finally it reached me in its due time. A minute into the book, I understood that it isn't for me!
This book, as claimed to be one of the best transgressive fiction work of tamil sadly didn't work for me. Okay this had happened before. I thought I should give it one more try. This was my second attempt This would be one book I wanted to read for really a long time. This was my second attempt to read this book. Prepared myself with all admirations it received for its lipogrammatic structure and others!
That drove me through first 20 pages of it and again, found it impossible to move further! Now I started hating this book and Charu. Well, was it because he was stating things that I don't want to hear? Or was it the nature of tone that made me feel like this material isn't for ordinary people like me.
Even though the book is supposed to reach an woman reader who according to the author is doing one of his listed activities, I wasn't sure if there would be anything I could relate to and I just failed to see any reason whatsoever to proceed this book further. I don't know..
Chennai’s zero shadow moment
Maybe this is just beyond me and I don't see myself matured enough to read this on and rate. I just added a new shelf for this one and honestly, I don't want to come across books of this sort in future. View all 4 comments.
Nov 20, Kalyan rated it did not like it Shelves: Total crap! Charu talks about everything in this book. Every page the topic jumps between cruelty, sex, sadism, child abuse, machoism, communism, gays, physical torture of captivities It was like a dream sequence. It jumps between incidents. Sometime the character in itself gives interview but which is act Total crap!
Sometime the character in itself gives interview but which is actually Charu's. Lot of character confusions. Some time I felt like its close to penthouse stories.
For sample, there is an interview with a character in the book Q: You always beaten it up with your words! I don't hate it. I think the most beautiful delightful and wonderful thing in the world is CUNT. And in the next page he talks about Big Bang. He is knowledgeable. In one page the character or himself, who knows I wanted to become a butterfly collector, but since Nabakov already doing that I decided to become ornithologist.
I am sure he was talking about Valdimir Nabakov and his Lolitas. It does not stop there. He is a very good ornithologist who also loves to eat the birds as well.
He complains why wouldn't I? But some time i felt he was also afraid of his words and try to give self explanation through the characters in the book.
At the end another character talks he is more afraid of auto drivers, bus conductors than the cops. How can he write a book which goverment will ban and arrest him?
But Charu is Brave and he is real!! Jun 27, Nitish Krishna rated it really liked it Shelves: This book is definitely not for everyone, definitely not for the faint-of-heart and most definitely not for young or sensitive readers. It is extremely rare to come across readily available English translations of Avant-Garde Tamil writing so I have been raring to read this book for a while.
I had searched for this book on both site India as well as Flipkart but finally found a copy at my neighborhood book store God bless independent book stores and may they live forever. This book is very di This book is definitely not for everyone, definitely not for the faint-of-heart and most definitely not for young or sensitive readers.
This book is very difficult to read. Some chapters are extremely obscure, making references to long-dead European existentialists while others are graphic in their portrayal of sexual, physical and psychological violence.
This book is definitely written in a way to provoke mainstream "polite" Tamil society and is as far away from what is considered "acceptable" literature as one can imagine. But that is the whole point! There is a lot of value in this book, especially for a reader who wants to explore the limits of literary fiction.
I do not want to say much about the story per se because there really isn't any coherent plot but one particular chapter Avantika's Letter to Surya is very readable and heart-wrenching. It made me feel a mixture of those emotions for sure. And any book that makes me feel anything other than boredom, to me, is worth reading.
This is the first ever book I have read where one character chastises another by calling him a "Mudevi" left untranslated but defined in the appendix. That by itself left me chuckling.
Aug 05, Karthick rated it really liked it Shelves: I dont know what to write a review about this book. I gave 4 stars because I have come to know a new genre called "Transgressive fiction".
Read again and again! Aug 18, Sarath rated it liked it.
The most craziest novel I have read till date. Felt - irritated, shocked, surprised, disgusted, sympathetic and bored. This is no easy novel and definitely not for those who can get offended by strong content of violence and sex. Never thought a novel could be this way and the most interesting read was Avanthika's episode in the novel.
Sep 16, Dhanabalan P rated it did not like it. This is a piece of shit. May 14, Tiamat rated it it was ok Shelves: Feb 05, Dineshwaran rated it it was ok. Calling this a lippogram is a scam.

To be perfectly honest, I really don't know at all what I think. I have yet to decide if this book is so experimental that it is brilliant, or just the result of laziness called literature.

There are a handful of reoccurring 'characters' housed in a goodly number of short 'chapters' which include some character sketches, some recollections, some conversations, and even a quiz about the book.
The last part is poetry, which may be much more profound in Tamil, but is rather bad in translation. Because Nivedita has no standard style, and the connection between each new chapter is someone tenuous at best, I feel like I should review each chapter in turn Jun 27, Jeffy Joseph rated it really liked it Shelves: It sure is experimental.
It felt like watching TV when someone else is channel surfing. Some times you get to see long sequences to make sense out of it, but there are also moments when the image flashes right past your mind as in a subliminal message.
A recurring theme is the violence against women in the society. Almost all the female characters in this novel are victims of some form of societal injustice.
An there are also passages that seems to be pure gibberish. All things considered, this is a great novel. Its a mishmash sample of the society which on careful introspection could reveal a great deal. This book is said to be one of the break through on tamil literature. It talks about a lot of cruel stuff.
See a Problem?
Forced Sex, Starvation, Poverty, Violence on women. It is said to be written as a transgressive fiction in a non-linear way. It touched me in bits and pieces, but as a whole I think I'm not well read enough to understand the whole point of this book.
Mar 10, Dhevathi Rajan rated it really liked it. I bought this book after reading the prologue which stated that ,this is a non linear fiction and written lippogramatic method.
