    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUBThis is a great book despite the narrative awkwardness that shows up in the end It's true that Mike Engleby has a mental illness but that's not why he's an important character He's important because there's something of him sick as he is in every smart outsider And every truly smart person should be at least a bit of an outsider don't you agree He is fascinated with the popular music of the time finding significance in it He politely goes along with people around him whil

    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUB'Engleby' gripped me from the start I love books set in Oxford or Cambridge the whole student scene fascinates me especially when set in the seventies it has that retro vibe of a scene I missed out on by a few years If that wasn't compelling enough for me the story moves on to London in the eighties not only the same era I lived in London but also the same part of London I lived in I ate in the same restaurants as Engleby we used the same library I've been so immersed in Engleby's world he narrates the story through the journal he keeps he is linge

    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUBMy taste in contemporary fiction tends towards authors Coetzee Saramago Barrico DeLillo Gustafsson Murakami Oshiguro that master the art of meshing the darkly epic the philosophically profound and the mildly surrealist into a compelling literary edifice A few weeks ago I hurriedly picked up a copy of Faulks' Engleby in an airport bookshop To be honest I had never heard of Sebastian Faulks but there was something in the introductory paragraph a mixture of matter of factness and grating irony that made me want to read on My name is Mike Engleby and I'm in my second year at an ancient university My college was founded in 1662 which means it's viewed here as modern Its chapel was designed by Hawksmoor or possibly Wren; its gardens were laid out by someone else whose name is familiar I was hooked before even the plane had left the tarmac The fascination endured and deepened into exhilaration as the narrative unfolded over its 340 pages and cu

    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUBThis was a really compelling read I read Birdsong many years ago and I think that's the only Faulks novel I've ever read and I frankly don't remember too much about including whether or not I liked it so it's unlikely I would have picked this up on my own An NPR interview steered me in the direction of this bookA fascinating character study of a sociopath tellingparticularly early on in what isn't implicitly stated than in what is I couldn't put it down I find myself unable to say a lot about it because I've now recommended it to several people and the things I find that I'd like to discuss would spoil the plot too much

    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUBThis was a very strange reading experience The premise was intriguing but I didn't really like the book from the first chapter Being a completist with OCD alas there was no choice but to finish it so I trudged on For the first half of the book I positively hated it then it either improved or made it seem so through a case of literary Stockholm Syndrome Now having finished it from the rear view perspective I can't say I liked it but there was a grudging sort of appreciation At least I didn't hate it all the way Engleby is a dense almost stream of consciousness style tale of an unreliable unlikable and unsympathetic narrator He has some sort of a psychological disorder possibly of an autistic variety He doesn't emote love or experience joy yet he manages to make a pretty decent life for himselffor a time It is only when a glitch in the precisely tuned machinery of his life tha

    Engleby MOBI Ì Paperback engleby mobile, Engleby PDFEPUBvery interesting story very disturbing disturbing because the main character is complicated you know there is something off about him yet you can probably relate to him on some level unless you had a really wonder bread life by the end of the book it disturbs you that you were able to relate to him at all and that such a character could exist but you know he probably could i like the twists and the complexity i also like that it is written in 1st person you feel like you stumbled across this guy's diary which you sort of did i wanted the book to be longer which is a sign i really enjoyed it
