    Kindle The Book Against God PDF ã The Book PDF/EPUB ² Ï agneroshetland.co book kindle, against download, The Book free, The Book Against God PDF/EPUBAn Educated FailureI have no idea what to make of this book It is apparently pointless written in deadeningly tedious prose about marriage religion and the neuroses of the English middle class Woolf’s introspection without insight; and Murdoch’s thought reduced to triviality Yet James Wood is a brilliant literary critic whose nuanced understanding of texts matches anyone’s How can that person have written and published this book?The protagonist Tom is a neurotic hapless puerile slob with poor personal hygiene He also lies as impulsively as Donald Trump particularly to his wife until she gives him the boot His response is to complain in the manner of Harry Enfield’s petulant teenager Kevin about her unfairness Characters pop in and uickly out of the narrative with no apparent purpose The dialogue is stifling in the extreme “Are you all right

    Kindle The Book Against God PDF ã The Book PDF/EPUB ² Ï agneroshetland.co book kindle, against download, The Book free, The Book Against God PDF/EPUBJames Wood has had an enviable career learning how to appreciate books and then reading and writing about them for a living Durham Cathedral School Eton College Cambridge Uni Chief Literary Critic of the Guardian Senior Editor at the New Republic in Washington DC currently staff writer at the New Yorker and he is only 47 But he basically always writes about himself and the academicjournalistic world he lives in If only I could take my experience banging and bending two motion selectors for Post Office Telecommunications where I spent the best years of my life to the bankIn this his only novel so far his protagonist is 'Thomas Bunting' unsuccessful academic and pathetic loser a reverse of Wood's own career Bunting has wasted seven years trying to finish his unspecified PhD dissertation and is now further time wasting putting together a so called 'Book Agains

    Kindle The Book Against God PDF ã The Book PDF/EPUB ² Ï agneroshetland.co book kindle, against download, The Book free, The Book Against God PDF/EPUBJames Wood is probably as successful as a literary critic gets having become a staff writer for the New Yorker and released a few well received books of essays The Book Against God is the Brit's only novel and it kind of reads like it's written by someone who has studied the craft of literature very very hard While not uite laborious Wood's prose is certainly studious and his story of an intellectual failure struggling to come out from his father's shadow hearkens back to the comedies of manners popular in the Victorian Age Admittedly I'm talking out of my ass here a little bit with these references; in actuality all I know is that Wood's book feels distinctly British and when I think of writings that feel British I think of either Jane Austen or Shakespeare and since this certainly ain't Shakespeare I'll compare it to Austen and call it a Comedy of Manners What did Austen write again?Wood positions his protagonist Thomas B

    Kindle The Book Against God PDF ã The Book PDF/EPUB ² Ï agneroshetland.co book kindle, against download, The Book free, The Book Against God PDF/EPUBA hard book to assess from the wise and articulate book critic for The New Republic Preoccupied with religion religious arguments mostly against with uite a bit about music as well the main character's wife is a professional pianist by one of my favorite critics it's a book that ought to have been intensely interesting Unfortunately the main character is so incredibly and I use this much overused misused word advisedly selfish immature that it was hard to care much about what happened to him or what he thought or believed a critical flaw for this book And despite some very interesting passages similar religious arguments were handled with much depth and at the same time better integrated into an engaging narrative by Jill Paton Walsh in Knowledge of Angels
