    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBII read this novel about a week ago I'm just really bad with updating my reading progress on goodreads However in this case I have an excuse for being late I tried to write this review sooner but somehow it wasn't happening Perhaps I needed some time to digest this novel I had a feeling that I will like it after I was done with the 'digestion' part I was right This is one of those novels that you don't fully

    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBIIt's funny I just looked back at my review for Drop City and somehow I want to write almost an identical review for this book even though the story is totally different For me reading Boyle is really not so much about the uality of the story he tells but rath

    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBIWonderful book by one of my favorite authors This is one of his first novels and won a PENFaulkner award upon its publication The book deals with families in the upstate area of New York an area that was primarily inhabited by the Dutch The story ranges from the 1660's to the `1970's Boyle weaves us back and forth through over 300 years but does not really cover anything from about 1680 until the present We start in present day to set up the characters and families and then go back in time to find the same families and see what happened back then and all of which ties in with the present A book you do not want to rush through Wonderful vocabulary great storytelling and some amazing twists and turns I think I have read at least 5 of his novels and Boyle is certainly an author who can tell a story

    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBITC Boyle is a very talented writer without uestion This is one of those books I wish I had picked up with a lot of time on my hands so that I could plow straight through it in just a few sittings The plot jumps around across a 300 year time frame and has many many characters which demands constantly referring back to the List of Characters at the beginning Thankfully said List of Characters exists or I think I might have become annoyedlost It is not a book you can read a little put down for a week and pick back up I found myself re reading a few previous pages at each sittingThat being said Boyle is a writer that any and every reader should experience His characters are so rich life like and believable His storylines are incredible and he has an uncanny ability to carry the tale along and draw the reader into his well crafted

    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBII am a huge TC Boyle fan I read almost everything he writes His vocabulary plotting sense of history and how it crashes into the living all make him extraordinary World's End won the PenFaulkner Award for him early in his career This book examines where we came from and how much it influences us Are we trapped like Walter with ghosts that frame us inside a future we can't escape He explains how brutal the wealthy Dutch settlers of the 17th c were to their own kind how mistreated the Indians were and how abusive the 60s could be a few centuries later although my favorite for that topic is his Drop City I think he's a genius for tying it all together My favori

    Paperback ã World's End PDF ¼ world's book, World's End MOBIFor some unknown reason award committees often seem to gravitate toward overblown works of fiction And thus it seems with this work But don’t get me wrong I like Boyle His vocabulary and storytelling often blow me away More than once in this book I caught myself totally engrossed in the book’s tales But in this book it seemed he was incapable of using the one little familiar word when three unusual words suffice I love that kind of stuff but enough is enough World’s End set in the Hudson River valley goes back and forth between the late 1600s and the mid 1900s to the 1960s covering generations of the same families One powerful family the Van Warts feudal land owners first control the land and those who live on it and later provide abysmal factory jobs Yes apparently there once was a feudal system in America Free spirit individualism education and other American ideals are oppressed and suashed The times change but the fa
