NOIR

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This article is about the novel. For other uses, see Noir.

NOIR is a science fiction novel by K. W. Jeter, published in 1998. It uses the conventions of film noir - the alienated, doomed hero, the cynical private detective , the femme fatale, universal corruption and moral breakdown - to portray a dystopian vision of capitalism run riot.

Even the monochrome visual style of film noir is a factor in Noir, as the hero has had his eyes specially treated to bleach colour out of what he sees. The hero is a detective named McNihil who is hired by corporate executives ostensibly to investigate the death of one of their colleagues.

The book is set in the Pacific Fringe - the only remaining industrialised part of the world - in a society where free market capitalism holds absolute sway. Even the dead, including the hero's wife, can be brought back to life as slave labour if they fail to meet their financial obligations. The internet has evolved radically so that emails can be seen fluttering around the recipient and pestering for attention, while strange online sexual experiences can be had through electronic surrogates called prowlers.

Noir

就是一部SF長篇小說

內容大楖是說一個色盲的偵探調查和他一起工作的同僚的死

說這個世界是個表面上自由,但實際上甚麼都是假的

(我英文水平很差,只明白了20%。大概就是這樣吧?)

而同時,Noir是法語,就是黑暗的意思

即是說stargazer的Noir就想表達,這個世界非常黑暗。表面上是和平,實際上準備着戰爭

在SEED的世界裏當時的確這樣,而且過了不久就開始戰爭了

難怪有C.E.73,特出了當時的年份

(感覺有點像0083似的。。。。。。。。。)
