    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBHmm Here is a messy review of what is a messy novel Pros Freuent but not so freuently to save the book delightfully clever descriptions Several of the characters were colourful and intriguing and held my interest others less so The central idea of a group of people following a mysterious bloke for various uncertain reasons was an interesting one and posed plenty of thought provoking uestions Readable enough to get through with a bit of a struggle Cons Confusing Strange for the sake of being strange Over long Too many unlikely and unlikeable characters The denouement and explanation though clever left me 'oh' than 'wow' because I'd had to work hard and long to get there and didn't care all that much when I reached the end Barker clearly is a talented writer but this was a bit much overall Had I not had it on my bookshelf and TBR list for over a d

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBLast night I finished reading Nicola Barker’s monolithic novel Behindlings an über manic triumph for the imagination wired on a diet of speedball and Dr Pepper Barker is one of the most venerated novelists of her generation winning the Impac Award at the turn of the millennium and has been raking in the prizes and wonga ever sinceBehindlings is a throbbing headache of a novel Her language kept me smiling and giggling for the first 200 pages – when her talent knew no fault when her loopy plots wrapped me in fuzzy love – but then I hit a wall of total alienation Barker had litera

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBThis was one of the confusing books I've read in the last few years but ultimately also one of the most satisfying; I spent the first half banging my head against the wall because there was just so much stuff going on and the second half shouting around my fist because it was falling together in completely crazy unexpected ways Very enjoyable Most definitely a great read to ring in 2008 I'd certainly look for of Barker's books af

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBNicola Barker has the playful joy in language of Nabokov This swirling complicated book about a perverse grieving and outrageous man and his many followers has an absurd uality to it but it is terrifically rooted in the mundane Funny sexy bewildering great

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBThis is the second book in Barker's Thames Gateway series although I'm not entirely sure where the 'series' part is as the characters are different the subject is different and the location is different Maybe it's a British thing I don't understand Anyway the premise of the story is uirky and interesting Like Wide Open the reader enters the story where the characters pretty much know everything and it is a process to reveal it to the reader I thought there were pieces

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBThis book was great fun I love Barker's weird imagination to create such a strange cult character like Wesley is a feat The story line is linear but written like a mystery novel you don't get all the details there are plenty of loose ends left open to the imagination and she builds her characters slowly and systematically I didn't give it a 5 however because her writing style drives me insane Where was her editor? If she was trying for stream of consciousness she DIDN'T nail it The characters speak and then revise what they said get it right the first time Barker Wh

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBI started this book forever ago and I should have kept at it and focused on finishing it in a much timely manner But I didn't the book hardly kept my attention for a full chapter at a time so I kept putting it down and going back to it every now and then As a result I easily confused the characters and forgot who some were all together This woman is an amazing writer and I'm sure this book is infinitely interesting but it is very slow on purpose I believe and often confusing which made it difficult for me to stick with it I'm going to hold on to this one and go back and start at the beginning sometime when my schedule is less crazy and I can really focus on it The characters are very

    PDF/EPUB Behindlings PDF/EPUB í ✓ yhgw.pro behindlings mobile, Behindlings PDF/EPUBMove over Coe there's a new favourite author in town Barker's writing reminds me of why I fell in love with books in the first place You read on having no idea what's going to happen next or invariably what's happening now and frankly it doesn't matter because the here and now is such a pleasurable place to be thanks to her gleefully joyful descriptions similes and random tangents What it never is though is twee idyllic comedy she's sufficiently potty mouthed and downright nasty to avoid that pitfallAnd seeing as this book predates Twitter by a good few years there's probably a case to be made that Barker invented the whole concept Obsessively stalking a celeb via a website sound familiar?
