「工学部・水柿助教授の日常」森博嗣

幻冬舎文庫版、発売されてたので思わず購入。
森博嗣なんて読むの何年ぶりだろー。
6、7年前に、頑張って頑張って何とか
夏のレプリカぐらいまで読んだんだっけか。
それとも、犀川&萌絵シリーズは全部
達成したんだっけ?
もう、何を読んだのかもさっぱり覚えてないし、
話の内容も何も覚えてないや。
Fから笑わない~くらいまでが何とかおぼろげ。

この、「水柿助教授・・」を読んで再確認したけど、
やっぱり森博嗣は小説より本人の方が面白い
これって一般的な意見なのかな?
実際、ネットの浮遊工作室は面白くて
かなり長い間チェックしてた覚えがあるもん。
そのうち、情報量が多過ぎてチェックし切れなくなって
やめたんだっけか。

この「水柿助教授・・」は、森博嗣のこれぞ真髄、
論理遊びとツッコミ、言葉遊びとツッコミ、
独特のユーモアなどなどが
ふんだんに詰め込まれてて思わず笑ってしまう。
今回、バレンタイン・デイの話から、
「バン・ダイン・デイ」になったのには爆笑。
ミステリファンのツボを付きまくってくれます。
全てを逆手に取る、とでもいうのかな。
言った端からその意味を否定していくような
遊び心が満載。

これに比べると、森博嗣の小説の方って
かなり薄まってるというか、平均化されてる、というか、
水柿助教授の言う「突飛な事実を小説に書いても
読者は信じてくれない、騙された!無茶苦茶だ!と思われる。
だから筋道の通ったことばかり小説にする。(一部本文から抜粋)」
のとおり、無難に綺麗にまとめました、っていう印象が強くて、
ある程度の面白さ、小説としての完成度のラインは
充分クリアしてるんだけど、
それ以上後に残るものがないんだよね。

これは森博嗣自身が、小説を完全に構築物として
「設計」して作っているのだろうから、
当然なことなんだろうけど。
魂の叫び!とか、感情のおもむくままに!とか、
情熱を注ぎ込んで!とかっていう創作スタイルは、
多分森博嗣の作品とは正反対だけど、
そういうものは泥臭いゆえに、
たまにすごく響くものがあったりする。
森博嗣の小説は、スマートで隙がなくて整然としてるけど、
共感とか衝撃とかはあまりないよね。

あとまあ、単に森博嗣の小説のキャラクタがあまり
好きじゃないのもあるけど。
パターンだし、お約束に過ぎる。
固有名詞もやり過ぎっぽいし。引くわ。
そこがいいっていうファンの人も沢山いるんだけど。
それと、夫婦で絵本描いてたり、
妻が挿絵入れてたりするのも、
あら、お2人で楽しそうですね、って感じで
ちょっと付いていけない。

まあ、ここ何年もの新作を読んでないから
違ってたらすみません。
でも、こういうエッセイ調のものだと、
結構森博嗣も好き放題にやってるっぽくて、
彼の肉声みたいなのが聴こえて来て
大変に面白い。
それすらも計算の内なんだろうけれど。

あと、小説だったらきっと書かないような
「助教授の1日」とか、仕事の内容とか、
コンクリートを使った実験のことまで
分かりやすく書かれてたりするのが楽しい。
こういう、専門分野の話って噛み砕いて説明してもらえると
すごく面白いんだよね。トリビア的な楽しみがある。
本当に頭がいいのは、易しく文章を書ける人だ、
って良くいうけど、森博嗣もほんとそうだと思う。
この調子で専門書書いてみてくれないかな。
すごく面白そうだ。

だから、浮遊研究室シリーズとか、幻冬舎で出してる
近況報告をまとめた一群とか(なんていうんだろね?このシリーズ)
小説じゃないものは読んでみたいんだけど、
ほんと1ページ当たりの情報量が多過ぎて
目がチカチカして来るし、
横書きなのも、いまいち馴染めないので
手が出し辛いんだよなあ。

この「水柿シリーズ」はフィクションとノンフィクションの
バランスが丁度良いし、
妻のこととか自分のことを書いてても距離があるので
そんなに嫌味には感じない。
何より縦書きなのがありがたい。

あとがきで筒井康隆が書いてたけど、
肝心の「推理作家になるまで」が全然触れられてないから、
今月出たばっかの第2弾「水柿・・・逡巡」も読みたいなあ。
文庫になったらだけど。
しかし、筒井康隆もこんな本の解説頼まれて
大変だよね・・。
でも、きちんと解説してるのがさすがです。

あと、森博嗣の装丁に対するこだわりとか、
タイトルセンスとかはやっぱり好きです。
字面も語感も考え抜かれていて非常に美しい。
一体どうやってこんなこと考え付くんだろ?っていう
文章とかギャグとか、とんでもない頭の良さも好きですね。

森博嗣って、例えば目の前に本人がいたとしたら、
こっちはすっごく尊敬して憧れてしまうだろうに、
向こうからしたら自分はゴミにも等しい存在で、
歯牙にも引っ掛けてくれなさそうなイメージがあります。
(そんな態度は表に出さないだろうけど)

midoroが完全に文系人間だから、
余計そう思うのかもしれないけど、
この人は自分とは全然違う思考回路と手法を持った人なんだ、
一つ上の次元から物事を見渡してる人なんだ、
っていう高嶺の花っぽいところが彼の魅力で、
そこに惹かれたり、羨ましいのに何だか
ムカついちゃったり、悲しくなっちゃったり、
アンビバレンツな気持ちを刺激されて
ついつい彼の本を読んでしまうんじゃないかなーと
midoroは思っとるのですが、どうでしょうか。
