    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookDNF dull rambling un engaging and overblown Not a walk around the Overground a ramble through the dictionary to try and use as many sentences and self important words that left me bored and disappointed It could have been so much better Other people liked it but not me

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookIan Sinclair is an acuired taste His prose is often overblown metaphor is heaped upon metaphor and imagery runs riot He's also apt to veer off on lengthy digressions on some of his pet obsessions usually obscure writers painters

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookBy Sinclair's wayward standards London Overground is a strangely focused account of a strangely controlled expedition around the new Ginger Line which brought above ground train routes through areas of London which had been bereft since Thatcher took her throne I will use Sinclair's own term for this impeccable prose managed gloom There's a poesis in decay for the author One thinks of Jules Renard or famously Harold Pinter Linking Angela Carter JG Ballard and a host of lesser figures the account is both heartbreaking and forever fascinating We have Beckett during his troubled faze Rimbaud and Verlaine engaging in spats and using fish to prove a point Most bizarre of all is Boris Johnson That holds true in all contexts Here he's the Mayor of London and whistling about on his bicycle I recognize that Sinclair isn't for everyone but he's endlessly intriguing worth a look

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookI'm not really sure what to make of this book For a flaneur's memoir there's little about walking and for a book inspired by a railway line there's not much about trains either Sinclair uses the London Overground line as departure point for reminiscences and musings about a variety of subjects but mostly themed around his own artistic and literary past and friends I did enjoy diversions into London history and gossip but for me reading London Overground felt like being a spouse at the annual company dinner I recognised names of people and places but mostly felt excluded fr

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookIain Sinclair cramming as many cultural references and metaphors into your prose doesn't make you appear sophisticated or witty it makes you come across as a pretentious sniveling cunt

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookI came across Iain Sinclair by accident I was watching some London stuff on YouTube and came across a walk he did and it was so utterly fascinating He is a novelist but does a lot of London exploring works and this is a walk done with the film maker Andrew Kotting Places buildings spark off diversions down historical and literary paths I learnt so much and have plenty of follow up reading to tackle His writing style is very individual it does at times verge on ridiculously over written but its like taking a walk with a good train nerd expert Peter Ackroyd and Stephen Fry all rolled into one

    ePUB Iain Sinclair ä London Overground eBook ê ä london kindle, overground ebok, London Overground eBookLargely pretentious twaddle A journey around one of the less interesting lines really just a rebranded collection of bits n bobs of railway with a pompous narrator There are some good passages such as the potted biography of Angela Carter but mostly this consists of trying to make largely mundane parts of London sound great What he marshals and how he presents his tales though are intense and yet dull Then there his eulogising of his walking companion who isn't so interesting as to warrant such extensive examination Although the twist at the end might partially explain thisThe beginning of the book is particularly dense with a pomposity and over use of ad
