rising up from a ripplen the water If you don t want an experimental great depression novel with multiple perspectives stream of conscious madness and Zen koans hidden through out then don t read this bookYour loss Let me preface this with this I LOVE EL Doctorow Loved City of God Loved Ragtime Loved The Book of Daniel So okI didn t LOVE Homer Langley but at least I didn t finish the book thinking I had lost my facility to comprehend EnglishI wish I could tell you I know what this book Wrestling Demons is about There s a con manfugitive protagonist whos not at all likeable or even Lgbtq Politics A Critical Reader interestingly evil There s a bizarre ladylove who dancesn and out of self respect every chapter or so The most nteresting character s a maid who disappears from the narrative fairly early on The depressed and eccentric poet holds promise yet he also vanishesI get that this was an experiment There are moments of that great Doctorow language that I treasure But as a coherent book Game Of Truth it fails I totally understand that some people find this work a stunning masterpiece and utterly compelling Varietys definitely the spice of life and I am probably the dry saltine of literature here but this one really did not do Drientwintig Keer Zwart Licht it for me Loon Lake a work of fiction by E L Doctorows set Crossdressing In The Futa Dorms Futa On Male

Loses Four Stars times was ultimately nterestingly executed Loses four stars a complete Tarot Of Marseille inability to write a female character without morbidly over sexualizing her or dis Originally published on my blog heren December 2001One of Doctorow s experimental novels Loon Lake presents a bewildering collection of different techniues traditional narratives stream of consciousness poetry It Ancien Tarot De Marseille is also a novel which continually reminds the reader of others possibly an easy way for an author to put himselfn the tradition of the great American novel among those which are brought to mind are The Grapes of Wrath and the USA trilogyLoon Lake a retreat for millionaire The Sacred Rose Tarot industrialist FW Bennettn the 1920s Tabula Mundi Tarot is the central setting of the novel Young hobo Joe turns up there entranced by a woman seen through the windows of a private railway carriage There toos poet Warren Penfield Bennett s pensioner as the novel follows Joe s path after he meets Bennett and leaves Loon Lake so too n parallel t describes Penfield s journey there The mixed up chronology contributes to the experimental feeling of the novelA difficult read with even the most traditional parts of the narrative flipping between first and third person Loon Lake How To Entertain Yourself With The Deck Of Cards Called Tarot is also atmospheric andnteresting for a reader prepared to make the effort I would say Loon Lake Priest In The Village Experiences Of African Community is the best EL Doctorow novel I have read thus far I even hazard to say Loon Lakes the superior of Ragtime Others have called Clonebrews Homebrew Recipes For 150 Commercial Beers it confusing difficult compromised by bad poetry etc but I found the out This may be the worst book I ve ever read I m not kidding It was awful Celebrated authorntriguing cover copy great reviews but The Accidental Porn Star A Neglected Wife Becomes A Porn Star Sensation it was a complete and utter mess of unmitigated dreck It wasn t just the fact that the narrative switches back and forth between third person first person and bad poetry or the fact that rules of grammar and punctuation don t seem to exist makingt necessary to go back and read the same sentence several times The Star Wars Cookbook Bb Ate Awaken To The Force Of Breakfast And Brunch in the hopes of figuring out whatt s saying but the fact that scenes and characters come out of the blue go back and forth n time and have no cohesion whatsoever that makes this book truly badI m still not sure what t was about One of the characters I Didn T Steal My Sister S Panties in the books a poet and when he gives a book of his work to another character he says The signatures n this one are out of order But no matter no matter I think the same could be said for Loon Lake Honestly I was determined to finish t because I d hoped Money Know More Make More Give More it wouldmprove that the story would somehow come together De Voordelen Van Onbeantwoorde Liefde in the endn a way that made the torture worthwhile Nope Not so much Just so bad I can t believe I actually wasted my time on Waarom Achtbanen Te Gek Zijn it Argh I first came across EL Doctorow when I wasn my twenties I was reading a lot of American writers who I thought of as 1960s writers and Doctorow fitted The Easter Bully Transformation Project in His work was wittily experimental self consciously used past literary styles could often be described as pastiche often switched perspective was playful he played literary gamesthe new buzz word at the time for all this was postmodernist But Doctorow differed from writers such as Thomas Pynchon because while for Pynchon the playfulness and experimentation was a thingn and for tself for Doctorow they had a purpose through the 1970s and 80s Doctorow published a series of five novels that nvestigated the history of the Twentieth Century United States he explored the past to discover the present Loon Lake s the central volume n this series and although Willing To Listen Wanting To Die its reputation doesn t seem to be overwhelming I thinkt Bibliotheque De M Livres Autographes

La obra más prodigiosa de Doctorow maravillosamente valiente cautivadora la mejor. To Joe the passive against the active but I find the passages centred on his perspective less successful than those around Joe Focused on two male characters the women of the novel are largely subjects of the story given little active force this seems to me to be a limitation of the novel not a failure The work finishes with an Killer On The Train ironic happy ending Joe achieving the American dream but seemingly losing his vivacity and humanity Loon Lakes extremely complex full of unexpected turns and hard to penetrate The nonlinear evolutions of the plot don t help either but Independent Lady in the long runt s one of the best novels by E L Doctorow and World Of Ptavvs it surelys my most favourite The man resisted all approaches he novels by E L Doctorow and Self Contradictions Of The Bible Scholar S Choice Edition it surelys my most favourite The man resisted all approaches he stone he was steel I hated his grief his luxurious dereliction I hated
