    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBI almost never ever give up on books Even when I’m reading the ones I dislike I make an effort to reach the end I don’t think you can fully judge a book unless you’ve read it in its entirety It would be like a movie reviewer walking out of the cinema half way through and writing up a review for the film nevertheless It would be incomplete But this one defeated me I just couldn’t go on after hitting the half way mark It’s only the second book during the last four years of reading that I’ve given up on Doesn’t this say something? This is one of the worst books I’ve read in my life here’s why I put this piece of garbage down The writing is heavily descriptive This in itself isn’t a bad thing Sometimes description is wonderful but when the author takes the time to painstakingly describe in huge detail the attributes of a crack in a toilet wall I want to shoot myself These special crac

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBZadie Smith praised this book and in her essay on 'realistic' versus whatever you want to call this sort of novel I'm sure she is smarter than I am and she maybe knows about literature but I don't share her enthusiasm for this and I think that there are many better examples of books out there fighting the good fight against the naturalistic realistic novel But maybe this is the sort of novel that can serve as a gateway read into the interesting terrain of 'difficult' literature or post modern or whatever term you want to use I'm lately fond of difficult It's not that I hated the book or anything I enjoyed it but nothing about it ever really won me over either The writing is sort of autistic in the same way that Don Delillo tends to be sometimes and I had no problem with that McCar

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUB In a light that is fierce and strong one can see the world dissolve–Franz Kafka In his first published novel I am convinced that Tom McCarthy realized his beguilingly strange fictive vision within a degree of perfection In a skillfully wrought authorial mirroring every element begets that which renders it contingent—the everyman narrative voice the unadorned prose the detached inflection and intonation the hum of the banal and drone of the workaday the subdued sexuality the repetitive nature and clerkish attention to detail the threadbare characterization unexplored potentialities the tangential asides upon mi

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBRarely does a book manage to break down the habits and expectations that a reader builds up in a lifetime of readingNovels conform to schemas there are uests there are obstacles to be overcome there are the universal standbys of love hate sex and murder death must come violently and suddenly in order to grip the reader and to disentangle her from the nasty feeling that it might be her destiny too one day Of course these are broad and possibly unfair generalisations but you get the point the reservoir of storytelling is limited and most authors are uite happy to wallow in the same shallows that their forebears found so reassuring True the 20th century saw some brave and sometimes foolhardy attempts to punt out into uncharted waters the French nouvelle roman is perhaps the most prominent example of this but today we are back to compendiousness narrative and the Jonathan Franzens of this world wise witty wordsmiths whose pat answers an

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBFascinating disturbing strange compelling To actually write about Remainder would I fear spoil the book for anyone who hasn't read it Even to list the variety of uestions swarming around in my head seems like it could ruin it So I won't I'll just say that this book is unlike anything else I've read and I loved it I suspect

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBI had to give this book four stars although I can not recommend it It really drew me in I couldn't put it down but then as I went on it became and disturbing until it got just outright creepy This book is so intricate and well written I think it will stay with me for a long time but I don't really want it to I was SO creeped out by the end of it I actually felt anxious for several days after finishing it It affected the way I looked at things around me the details that you wouldn't normally notice The book seemed to heighten my awareness and actually change my perception of my world for a few days anyway I want to believe that this is fiction and that ther

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBI loved this book but probably because it has exactly the ingredients I like unreliable narrator sharp writing and a page turning plot so hard to find all of these in one bookI thought the premise was moderately interesting but it's not what captured me Rather it was the way the book spun out and the narrator unraveled that fascinated me And Tom McCarthy is just smart and witty and his prose is razor sharp Reading the other reviews on this site of this book I was genuinely surprised how many people didn't like the book I think I could read anything written with as much style and precision as this book The overall

    Kindle Tom McCarthy Ú Kindle Remainder MOBI º Ú teachenglishthailand.co.uk remainder book, Remainder ePUBFlawless A taut tidy disturbing little piece of fiction and one that certainly won't be for everyone A novel that should have been stifling and airless somehow manages to feel aerated and cautiously expansive like an inflating balloon on the verge of bursting This isn't the sort of book for readers in the mood for something filled with likable characters or lyrical emoting I love those books but Remainder is not one of them it isn't for the heart it's for the head It is a thought experiment intensely rational with lovely descriptive passages of everyday minutiae I kept thinking of Observatory Mansions when I read this the books are uite different but there is a certain kinship in the uality of the bizarre on display where Observatory Mansions is concerned with the practice
