    The Friend Epub ñ Paperback friend ebok, The Friend PDFEPUBSigrid Nunez’s The Friend sometimes reads like a memoir sometimes like a letter to a friend and sometimes in an attempt to make sense of both her friend’s death and the dog who has come to stand in for him a philosophical inuiry I loved it Nunez is smart funny and thought provoking as she explores life death writing and relationships I know this book is not for everyone The fact that writing and the writing life is such a strong focus will appeal to some and turn others off Perhaps as a conseuence it doesn’t really have a strong plot unless you count whether the unnamed narrator will find a way to keep her friend’s dog but in my opinion that’s not really the point Nunez does so much in these pages that keeps me wanting to keep reading This was my first time reading Sigrid Nunez but it won’t be the last time I will look for anothe

    The Friend Epub ñ Paperback friend ebok, The Friend PDFEPUBdespite my joy over twinkle lights and tiny notebooks etc i was apprehensive when i got this book in my uarterly literary fiction box from pagehabit let’s just say this isn’t a good time of year for me to be reading books about suicide OR books where beloved animals might die but this isn’t a tearjerker by any means for a book about grief it’s almost entirely cerebral and most of the emotional responses to death are centered in the behavior of the dog whose master has just diedit’s somewhere in between a letter

    The Friend Epub ñ Paperback friend ebok, The Friend PDFEPUBUpdate Bumping my rating down to 2 stars The I think about it the I don't think the author's intentions were executed well This book was a miss for me but I’ve decided not to rate this 2 stars since I think that’s just a matter of my personal preference rather than the objective uality of the book It’s less of a story and a string of musings about literature life and death and how interconnected they can be The book aims to be thought provoking but I did not feel moved or attached to the writing despite my adoration for dogs and penchant for over

    The Friend Epub ñ Paperback friend ebok, The Friend PDFEPUBA meditation on writing grief and friendship The Friend follows an unnamed woman as she comes to terms with an old friend's suicide and struggles to take care of the dog he has left behind The novel is narrated from the woman's perspective and each of its twelve chapters consists of a series of fragments addressing a wide array of subjects The flimsy plot in fact feels merely like a jumping off point for philosophical contemplation; the narrator discusses at length the ethics of animal ownership sexual harassment friendships between men and women divorce literary composition pedagogy and suicide A pair of twists in the final two chapters adds a dash of drama to the story but the appeal of the novel lies elsewhere Nunez's prose is terse and fast moving and her freuent references to the work of other writers makes her book read as a collage of perspectives While I value

    The Friend Epub ñ Paperback friend ebok, The Friend PDFEPUBTHE FRIEND by Sigrid Nunez is uite simply one of the best personal narrative novels I've come across concerning dogs and writing In the same vein as MY DOG TULIP Nunez alternates philosophizing between her literary musings and the unexpected care she must bestow upon a massive great dane As a dog lover I am a sucker for any good dog book but Nunez's focus not only on the physical complications of a huge dog in tiny spaces but also upon the heavy philosophical uestions that arise for many writers and their pooches is second to none At different times the subjects of love and loss take the forefront bouncing back and forth between the death of a close friend and the dog the protagonist takes in after the tragedy Both hilarious and heartwarming while also deeply contemplative and empathic THE FRIEND is an uncanny exploration of grief and loss while
