    Epub Penelope Fitzgerald ´ The Bookshop PDF ê ´ bookshop free, The Bookshop PDFOn an unusually upbeat evening I was winding up from work The recently bought crisp intense 300 pages long fictional drama that I had left tantalizingly at the 273rd page the previous night was softly tip toeing in front of my eyes The unread pages were already floating invitingly in the evening breeze and I could not wait to reach home for resuming the date When I was just stepping into the lift I received a call from a friend a bibliophile in fact ‘Hey Do you know they are closing down L ? Can’t believe it man I am’I was not listening No The words that reverberated at first in concentric circles and then suspended frozen were ‘closing down' That place; so many books so many friends so many chuckles so many revelations so many years so many memories so much no The floating pages dropped dead the tantalization turned grievous and t

    Epub Penelope Fitzgerald ´ The Bookshop PDF ê ´ bookshop free, The Bookshop PDFReading this in conjunction with other nominees for the 1978 Booker Prize like Jane Gardam's God on the Rocks and Kingsley Amis's Jake's Thing really does give you this impression of 70s England as a place of small towns insular gossip hostility to new ideas and a preoccupation with uotidian concerns over any sense of the wider world In a sense fair enough – but one does slightly yearn for a little ambition and pizzazz in the novelling world By comparison Iris Murdoch's The Sea The Sea which I didn't entirely love when I read it years ago seems like a worthy winner; it took those parochial English elements and made them into something archetypal something mythic and strange and genuinely literaryThat said there is loads to like about most of the choices and this brief study in disillusion and small town rivalries is no exception Fitzgerald teeters on the e

    Epub Penelope Fitzgerald ´ The Bookshop PDF ê ´ bookshop free, The Bookshop PDFMy third Fitzgerald and least favourite Essentially it's about the power struggle between two women Florence is another of Fitzgerald's innocents doomed to failure A kind of child woman with a good heart but so lacking in practical acumen that opening a bookshop in a sleepy backward seaside village seems like a wilful act of self harm than an act of aspiration Especially as we're never led to believe Florence has any kind of close affinity with books She does battle with the power broker Mrs Gamart who wants the property for her own purposes For me it lacked the subtlety of the other two as if Fitzgerald was fed up with being poor and wanted to earn some money It's a book that's tailor made for one of those charming period Sunday evening BBC dramas The characters here are drawn wit

    Epub Penelope Fitzgerald ´ The Bookshop PDF ê ´ bookshop free, The Bookshop PDFSometimes a book ends in such a depressing way that I struggle to recall what went before This is one of those books It makes it difficult to write a balanced review but I will tryI did enjoy most of the book The author writes really well and there are many light moments where she exposes the truth of human nature The dialogue is skilfully done and the main characterFlorence Green always seems to be in charge of the situation She is portrayed as an intelligent brave and resourceful woman and there is a lot of enjoyment in the way she takes on the oppositional townspeople This makes it all the surprising when right at the end of the book things take an unexpected turn It is a realistic ending and one which probably helped get the book listed for an award Sadly for me it was not my kind of an ending
