    PDFEPUB Swamplandia PDFEPUB ¼ Õ pamyatnikpro swamplandia pdf, Swamplandia PDF/EPUBHey it's my latest and meanest review for CCLaP I also put this on my CCLaP best of 2011 list—for best total disappointmentPerhaps Swamplandia is a case of being careful what you wish for Perhaps it was a back handed slap against wish fulfillment Perhaps it should force me to reexamine deeply held prejudices or at least preferences which would make me grow as a reader and a person ultimately making me open minded forgiving and calmOr maybe it’s just a bad bookLet’s start with this I hate short stories They’re such a letdown Why go to the trouble of setting a scene peopling it with interesting characters working up momentum and then ending it? Just when things were starting to get good? Come on lazy author why'd you stop? This drives me totally crazy And Karen Russell’s debut collection St Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves was a perfect example The stories were so great Her spooky ambiance her weird haunting language her creepy ideas and wond

    PDFEPUB Swamplandia PDFEPUB ¼ Õ pamyatnikpro swamplandia pdf, Swamplandia PDF/EPUBI really wanted to like this book It came with high praises and witty blurbs It came with a cool cover It started out fun and quirky a family of alligator wrestlers living on a Florida island running their own crazed theme park But halfway into the story I am stranded in the swampland Stranded not by fierce monster gators but by beautiful pointless writing with no movement toward either crisis or resolution It's a mystery to me why this doesn't work but it just doesn't Beaut

    PDFEPUB Swamplandia PDFEPUB ¼ Õ pamyatnikpro swamplandia pdf, Swamplandia PDF/EPUBSwamplandia is its very own Rorschach test A reader can see in it most anything he or she wants Is it a terrifying supernatural thriller? A fast paced adventure story? An elegiac narrative about a dysfunctional family slowly spinning out of control? A cautionary tale about the perils of being an outsider? Or a quirky and dream like parable using the swamp as a mythic archetype?In fact it’s all these things Yet above all else Swamplandia is a lavishly imagined and highly original coming of age story Swamplandia is the name of a faded nearly bankrupt Ever

    PDFEPUB Swamplandia PDFEPUB ¼ Õ pamyatnikpro swamplandia pdf, Swamplandia PDF/EPUBThis was 4 5 star territory until 78 through the book you know THAT part I feel like I was sold a bill of goods I liked what I was sold — a book with some seriously beautifully depicted magical realism a hero with a call and an unlikely helper almost a spirit guide I mean I was quite aware of where that relationship could have headed and I kept consciously thinking I'm glad that I really believe that the author is going to take it on a original path than that But nope even seeing all the warning signs it just didn't work Here's what my experience with this book felt like A good friend takes your hand and says Come with me I'm going to take you on an eight mile hike to show you a real life unicorn Then when you get to mile seven she lets go of your hand punches you in the face and runs away not even giving you enough time to ask WHY?I'm certainly not against when bad things happen to good characters too many examples to name of
