    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFAs so many others have said this book was not of the same caliber of Shriver's WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN or THE POST BIRTHDAY WORLD So yes from that standpoint reading it was a disappointment But what if we think about it differently? What if we think about it as Shriver's sixth novel the one that came before KEVIN and POST BIRTHDAY? What if we read it and look for those hints and they are certainly there and in force of what it is to come from this writer? Read that way DOUBLE FAULT is fascinating In this society of ours we seem to prize most those people for whom skill and success appear effortless But here is a writer who has spent decades at her craft and slowly book by book became extraordinary Isn't the path she followed creatively well worth our time and respect?

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFThis book is a powerful portrayal of the destructive nature of competitiveness I felt that it made me think deeply about the important difference between ambition and competition As such being ambitious is mainly directed at yourself aiming at improving your last score for example or being keen to do your very best whatever the activity or task at hand Competition however appears to be directed at others the importance to climb to the top ie in this case reach the top of the tennis champions listings Ambition is hence the healthier 'version' because what you want is to reach your potential which allows for self discovery and you can learn to accept who you are As for competition it is frustrating at the best of times because you are constantly going to face people who may be bett

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFI am a huge fan of Lionel Shriver I think The Post Birthday World is one of the finest novels on the subject of love marriage and romance in our modern era I was not necessarily drawn to this novel because of the subject Although I don't hate tennis and can take watching it in small doses I am no bog fan of the game or its place in our soci

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFThere was a lot to admire and appreciate here Shriver's writing style is witty and her powers of observation and description are as honed as ever here in describing the dynamics of the female and male halves of a relationship in this case two professional tennis players In some ways there are a lot of themes which are common in most relationships in some ways there

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFIt occurs to me that the world of professional sport is one that has been relatively unexplored by novelists Perhaps that is because sport is its own drama and there is little to be gained from writing about fictional sporting contests when one can watch the real thing There's David Peace's imaginings of the management careers of Brian Clough and Bill Shankly and I can't really think of much else Actually that's not uite true There's the whole of Dick Francis' oeuvre for starters And when I was about twelve or th

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFSpoilers ahead I found it hard to rate this book on one hand it did have a compelling 'have to finish' uality if a bit voyeuristic in nature on the other it has patches of purple prose notably the lovesex scenes Not many of those thank goodness with their shattering orgasmic noises though these are his for a change And some strange incomprehensible sentences These may have been Kindle errors of courseThe sentences that is not the orgasmic noise And of course as many reviwers have already noted the protagonists are unlikeable and driven and often stupid Still one shouldn't reuire ones protagonists to be nice and I do think Lionel Shriver has done a bold job in presenting Willy Wilhelmina and Eric to us Willy is a deeply flawed even damaged character and the book as much as anything else details her descent into a maelstrom of self blame and masochism I noti

    PDF franzbielmeier.de ↠ Double Fault PDF ´ double epub, fault ebok, Double Fault PDFI read this book because I immensely enjoyed two of Lionel Shriver's other books The Post Birthday World and We Need to Talk About Kevin Usually when I find a book that I like I immediately try to find other books by the author and read them Although I enjoyed this book I didn't find it as intriguing or involving as her others And yes the author is a woman I just assumed it was a man when I began The Post Birthday World and kept thinking This guy can really write from a woman's point of view but then later found out it was a woman Anyway I'm not saying
