This book made me extremely angry, at multiple times I had to stop reading to calm myself down. I hate people now

This is excellent, yet hard to pin down. A bit like matter and anti-matter, opposite things that seemingly can't exist together but are more alike than we might imagine. This touches on so many topics, from the conspiracy theories of the pandemic to the conflict in Palestine, the way each of the topics are explored is so excellent and thoughtful.

In Doppelganger, Naomi Klein explores some of the more unsettling aspects of contemporary politics and culture, taking as her jumping-off point how frequently she herself has been confused in recent years with feminist-turned-conspiracy theorist Naomi Wolf. Conspiracy theories and doppelgangers/doubling have abounded in recent years, and Klein is at her strongest when she explores how we are all susceptible to manipulation and to confirmation biases. I doubt it's possible to read Klein's grappling with self-examination in the wake of her "double's" mirroring of her without a certain queasy empathy, and she writes with admirable humour. However, Klein's doppelganger theme feels a bit strained and over-extended at times—are some points of similarity alone enough to merit the title of doppelganger? Contemporaneity and causation aren't the same thing, and I'm wary of grand narratives; then, too, there is the sense that Klein is spending a lot of time grappling with understanding those whose narcissism is both banal and obvious. Still, a thought-provoking read.… (mais)

I like Naomi Klein and I think she has much to contribute to our community dialogue. However, as I read through this book, I started to feel that her thesis was weak and the content of the book was rambling. It became more and more of a personal rant as it went along and I didn't feel like I had learned a thing by the end. If I'm looking for a rant, I can find plenty of it on the internet. I expect a lot more from a book.
