    City PDF EPUB ñ Paperback city free, City PDFEPUBIn general I don't like absurdist stories but I have really enjoyed this book and that's the first time this happens to me with Baricco It’s impossible to summarize the story of this book because there isn’t a real story with the exception perhaps of the storyline around the young genius Gould That boy has a disarming charm that made me think of the Owe

    City PDF EPUB ñ Paperback city free, City PDFEPUBBarrico's 'City' seems in all its fragmented splendour a thoroughly modern book Yet at the same time it casts a long glance back to the origins of the novel as a Western cultural invention emulating the picaresue models of Cervantes and Rabelais or the 'sentimental' journeys of Laurence Sterne Barrico says he has conceived of the book as the plan of a European town with its irregular organically grown uarters streets buildings Reading the book then amounts to an exploratory ramble through this city with sudden twists and overlaps in the narrative as you turn a corner and an unexpected vista opens onto a different neighbourhood It takes a few pages to get used to but once one has adjusted to Barrico's pace the experience becomes utterly engrossing Barrico has real talent as a story teller; his prose has the directness and vivacity to keep you very involvedIt is difficult to say what this book is 'about' Given the heterogeneous and evolving nature of a city it woul

    City PDF EPUB ñ Paperback city free, City PDFEPUBSo I finally finished this book I REALLY wanted to like it The idea of the book is great and I think the overarching story is the best part of the book by far For me the stories within the story weren't nearly as good They felt like a slow distraction and they were just kind of silly I guess they were insights into the characters who wrote them but the subject matter of those stories within stories a western and a story about boxing just couldn't have been much less appealing for me personally Maybe it's because I abandoned the book for a long time before going back to finish it but the end went SO SLOWLY for

    City PDF EPUB ñ Paperback city free, City PDFEPUBI don't know why either but I've attempted this one twice and can never seem to see it through to the end The concept is really nice the writing is good but I think the story and the intertwining dialogue confused me than anything Another case of bad timing or just not something for me I am still not sure
