Graham Swift Ó 2 Review Review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ó Graham Swift Summary É Waterland Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ound knowledge of a people a place and their interweaving Swift tells his tale with wonderful contemporary verve and verbal felicity A fine and original work Los Angeles Time. What is it about Swift s writing that I find so haunting Nearly all of his novels are about a middle aged man in an existential crisis and yet I find them deeply arrestingly relatable even as a young happy lady It might be his concise sentence structure or it might be his ability to at the end of the story connect all the small moments and rush them toward the reader in a fast breathtaking wave until finally leaving a brisk declaration of The Point of Everything in the wake like a broken shell on shore If you find yourself at the end sitting on a beach skin saturated in emotion mind stunned by the force of Swift s writing and holding a husk of this book then we ll know it s the latter I don t know you guys Maybe he s just good with the words G Swift you keep throwing books over the Atlantic and I ll keep catching them with open arms

Graham Swift Ó 2 Review Review ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ó Graham Swift Summary É Waterland Í PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Set in the bleak Fen Country of East Anglia and spanning some 240 years in the lives of its haunted narrator and his ancestors Waterland is a book that takes in eels and ince. This may be one of the most beautifully written books I ve ever read A lot of my favorite books some of which I enjoyed even than this one have some combination of good plots good themes or good characters but the uality of the writing leaves something to be desired This is one of those novels that is so expertly crafted that it makes you remember what great writing is The premise of a history teacher who is about to involuntarily retire due to the principal s decision to eliminate the history program makes it plausible that the narration is the main character s last lectures to his class It gets extremely personal and at times inappropriate for a class lecture but because he no longer has anything to lose Tom Crick speaks uncensored ultimately teaching the class not only his personal history some of which is pretty grizzly but also how history is valuable because it is a part of everyone Every life has become and will become a part of history Because of the style of narration it is almost a stream of consciousness You get the feeling that his words are almost floating out of him of their own will and that he just lets it happen As a result the stories of his life jump around rather than happening chronologically One moment he ll be talking about his brother and him during the war then he ll jump to the history of his family in the 18th century then to his own marriage and then back and forth again It can get a little confusing at times because he never tells you which part of his life he is returning to the reader just has to have patience and then it will be revealed In short I recommend this book to anyone who is craving writing as art
