    Discordia PDF/EPUB Ê ↠ ePUB bvlive.co.uk discordia kindle, Discordia EpubThe book gives good insight into the Greek financial crisis and the rise of neo fascism and how these things affect everyday life for the people of Athens I love the gonzo style A lot Penny writes in a raw and honest Thomson esue way But still I was a bit disappointed by this book Penny talks to many people but simply ignores some of the most interesting ones like the anarchists She dismisses the anarchists by saying basically that anarchists are traditionally hostile to reporters in Greece and that anarchists would never talk to her based on an incident where she was kicked out of some autonomous anarchist gathering years ago What? So instead of talking to the actual left radicals of Greece she spends most her time talking to imho boring pro SYRIZA social democrat left coalition people So the main political view the book is left with disappoints me as I can not see how SYRIZ

    Discordia PDF/EPUB Ê ↠ ePUB bvlive.co.uk discordia kindle, Discordia EpubI really like Laurie Penny's journalism and this short bookextended column is a good example of her writing It's accompanied by Molly Crabapples brilliant illustrations so it is a modern gonzo reportage similar but different to Hunter S Thompson and Ralph Steadman The story of Greek misery is distressing however and I worry what the future holds for us
