    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleI want to review Darkmans but I should be researching UK agents so I can submit my own novel to snotty Islington ministers’ daughters—the sort who fall down drooling at The Kite Runner or some such oxplop—in the hope that one day I can write a tongue in cheek five star review of my own novel on Goodreads then re post a series of self promoting updates every four minutes for everyone to ignore then fight off a caustically withering slapdown from Mr Bryant with four pages of unpunctuated vitriol made worse by a pompous author shot of me unshaven in my James Joyce glasses oozing hard won wisdomI wonder if Nicola Barker ever spends the afternoon writing a three hundred word review for Goodreads under a pseudonym rather than delivering the next twelve pages of her latest opus to her publisher I doubt it See this is my problem I ado

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleA strange book which can be funny moving thought provoking – as well as frustrating But then it is set in Ashford which is all of those things and less The plot is hard to summarise although as a reader you'll probably be preoccupied with unpicking the Byzantine web of connections which links the cast The nearest thing to a central character is Kane a layabout and amiable drug dealer; he has a strained relationship with his father Beede who works at the local hospital Both of them are infatuated with a chiropodist called Elen whose half German husband Dory suffers from schizophrenic episodes during which he appears to be possessed by the spirit of a medieval jester Their son Fleet has preternatural awareness and is building a fourteenth century French cathedral out of matchsticks A Kurdish immigrant Gaffar observes them all with sardonic weariness and chats up Kelly a sympathetic chavette who br

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleAnytime I see a book this size I think What was that you had to say that you needed than 800 pages to do it? And I am intrigued because surely it must be something magnificent to justify the magnificent size On the other hand I know that I suffer from severe obsessive compulsive disorder and if I started this book I would just have to finish it no matter what There is a possibility it could be 800 pages of blabbering or worse yet 800 pages of impenetrable ontological debatesLuckily you can just skate through 'Darkmans' and it is not all total blabbering PaulI suppose I should tell you what it is actuall

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleThis is going to sound strange because I imagine most people would think the opposite but I think if Darkmans were 500 pages shorter aka the length of a normal book I would very likely have hated it The style is maddening in several ways1 Barker has a tendency to over italicize I know this because I worry that I italicize too much and if someone else's italics are bothering me it must be a serious problem I'm not kidding; Darkmans is like that old newspaper comic Brenda Starr where every emphasis gets bolded Rex I'm surprised you're home so early It's as if Barker thinks the reader doesn't understand where people place their emphases when they're talking out loud and needs to be taught2 Also she's crazy about parentheses And again I probably use parentheses too much this review's probably not a great example since aside from this one I'm m

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleDarkmans is funny and interesting though it doesn't become either until almost 300 pages into the 800 page story Barker's style of writing which gives the grammar lover in me nightmares is tough to follow until she tones it down a little and really lets the narrative take over At that point I was able to stop lamenting all the commas that could have been and start really paying attention t

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleWhat a wonderful book with which to begin the new year Darkmans has been on my radar ever since the book's cover caught my eye four years ago that tongue wagging devil is creepy The book's heft and weirdness intimidated me at first and I filed it away in my mind as a get to when it's time bookThis year it was time and what a time I had with this book The story though small in actual scale is peppered with so many warrens and boltholes and caches that captured me without warning and pulled me into musings and conversations about history language love memory identity lies and the subjective nature of conscious

    Kindle Nicola Barker Ò Ò Darkmans eBook ´ darkmans free, Darkmans KindleIs there a first time for everything? This is the first time I've ever given up on a book halfway through At first I thought she was being uirky and setting the scene but I read up to page 405 and nothing had happened yet the characters were neither interesting nor likeable and her style of writing is unbelievably irritating with sentences half written full of utterly meaningless interjections like huh? eh? what? what? but right No NO and r
