What?I went into this read almost “blind” knowing only that the author William Styron received the Pulitzer for fiction in 1968 for The Confessions of Nat Turner and that this novel Sophie's Choice published in 1979 would attract attention as a movie than a book Most of us would come to think of Meryl Streep as Sophie whether we saw the film or not I didn'tSo back to the busy lobby where I'm sweating out the first of Stingo's erections and looking around the room wondering if anyone has any idea what I'm reading they didn't and even though I was tickled beyond belief to find humor and s

    MOBI Sophie's Choice Epub ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ sophie's epub, choice kindle, Sophie's Choice PDFEPUB “The landscape and the living figures of that summer as in some umber smeared snapshot found in the brittle black pages of an old album had become dusty and indistinct as time for me unspooled with negligent haste into my own middle age yet that summer’s agony still cried out for explanation”Humor Brooklyn mental illness eroticism and the Holocaust Sounds like an unlikely concoction for a novel doesn’t it? This was totally unexpected The only knowledge I had going into this is that it was a wildly popular film about World War II starring Meryl Streep and that it would involve some troubling ‘choice’ of some sort What I walked away from was a deeply moving brilliantly written sometimes overblown story about three people whose lives converge during the summer of 1947 “I was fated to get ensnared like some hapless June bug in the incredible spider’s nest of emotions that made up the relation betwe

    MOBI Sophie's Choice Epub ¼ ✓ gigonog.me ✓ sophie's epub, choice kindle, Sophie's Choice PDFEPUBI stuck with it out of curiosity not so much to find out what her choice was but because this is supposedly an important American novel and I kept waiting for the Aha moment when it would finally get good Unfortunately it was just way too long I now know what it's like to suffer from too much foreshadowing It was so tiresome reading hint after ominous hint about what was going to happen The narration was clumsy and over explanatory Do you really have to recap an event that you just narrated 50 pages anterior?
