Read Setting Free the Bears õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ John Irving John Irving ☆ 6 Read This first novel written by a twenty five year old John Irving already a master storytell. John Irving is my favorite author This may be surprising to some because I am not what I consider the LL Bean preppy type in my opinion anyway I decided to read his first book after giving up on his last one I decided why not start at the very beginning and start over again John Irving has some reoccurring themes in his books bears accidents strange sexual behavior There is a good illustrative graph if you Wiki John Irving This book is no exception except for one theme which is MOTORCYCLES This book is preoccupied with MOTORCYCLES in the same way Slaughter House 5 is concerned with the bombing of Dresden What I appreciate is that I never suspected as I read the story that he would go on and on about motorcycles but he finds a way to include them in sometimes absurd ways I felt like I learned a lot about them Useless stuff mostly how they sound how they suck air what it feels like to burn your legs on a tailpipe what types of motorcycles the Vermacht used how you should always use your front brake how to best toss a grenade under a parked car while driving one the list goes on and on I did not give this book five stars I would give a few of his books 5 stars but this one lacked something his best work has Maybe it is that it isn t uite outrageous enough I would love to have someone who knows something about the workings of MOTORCYCLES read this book and tell me if he is full of schei e

Book 1 in my John Irving Challenge 2017 wherein I will attempt to read all of John Irving s novels in order of publication within one yearI think this sums up my experience with this novel nicely A character dies on page 90 and I did not realize he was dead until page 212 Suffice it to say I did not enjoy reading this book I dug the first 90 pages with their wacky happenstance and uirky characters but after that everything went to shit The narrative becomes disjointed and a cogent story devolves into part history lesson part study in tedium I never did come to give a single shit about Siggy Graff was an okay dude but Siggy was annoying The middle hundred pages are pure torture to get through At times it took me an hour to read only twenty pages because I just didn t give a shit The ending was fun in a chaotic way but I do wonder how people who read this when it first came out felt what with them not having the internet to look up all these animals Irving names I say names because he only names them One or two he might give a broader description but I for one had no idea what an aoudad anoa and addax were nor did I have a fucking clue what a gerenuk gemsbok or gaur were He goes on to describe a gaur as one of the tallest oxen in the world but what the holy fuck are the other five he listed Yes person reading this review I can very well hop over to Google and search for these things and I did do just that But how the hell did readers in 1968 do it You d have to be one of those rich kids with a full set of Encyclopedia Britannica to know what all he s talking about Or you can just imagine a zoo full of rampaging animals I guess Whatever It got on my nerves having to stop reading in order to Google animals so I knew what he was talking about What made it even annoying was having to stop reading IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ACTION so I could clearly picture this crazy cast of animalsI m glad I know Irving gets better over the course of his career Because had I first read this book in 1968 I likely never would have read this author againIn summation Nowadays every debut novel that comes out has someone barking ERMAGERD I CAN T BEREAVE DIS A FURST NOVELS Well this is one of the rare first novels that feels like a first novel Only recommended for Irving completionistsFinal Judgment Reuires a masters degree in biology or complete set of Encyclopedia Britannica to fully enjoy

John Irving ☆ 6 Read

Read Setting Free the Bears õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Summary ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ☆ John Irving John Irving ☆ 6 Read E after World War II But their good intentions have both comic and gruesome conseuences in. I uit on this book The first hundred pages which involve an adventure through Austria by two young lads on a motorcycle is enjoyable if a little vapid The remaining 250 pages which changes dramatically in tone and format is excerpts from a diary of one of those two guys and is painfully dull to read I struggled through 100 pages of this wanting to get back to the narrative but it didn t come and so I uit There are too many good books around to waste your time on something as unremarkable and unpolished as this I figure The jacket had promised a mixture of Til Eugenspeil and Ken Kesey Okay I haven t read Eugenspiel but I m not sure what about Irving s writing here bears comparison with Kesey Irvings prose is flat and childish nothing like the rich textured world that Kesey can paint
