    First Person eBook ó Hardcover first epub, person epub, First Person MOBIOne of those books you can easily expect to appear on a literary prize list beautiful prose many pages spent pondering the thoughts and beliefs of the main character and a lot going on that I did not understandNot understanding parts of it is I am sure my problem not the author's Richard Flanagan's writing is flawless and frequently very beautiful His characters are deep and cleverly written but also very unpleasant with very little to redeem any of them I debated long and hard how to rate this book and decided to go down the middle with three stars It is without doubt a very good book but on

    First Person eBook ó Hardcover first epub, person epub, First Person MOBII received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I loved the premise for this a penniless writer is promised 10000 to ghost write the memoirs of a notorious criminal in six weeks Part thriller part literary introspective study and autobiography what follows was an interesting story but ultimately it just didn't work for me I think the main issue I found was the writing itself There's no denying it's well written but at times I struggled with the slow pace of the plot A lot of the story is dedicated to overly flowery descriptions and a great deal of time is spent on self reflection rather than actually 'going' anywhere That said Kif's growing unease depression and his internal struggle is masterfully crafted As the story progresses you really see him unravel as he starts to question just w

    First Person eBook ó Hardcover first epub, person epub, First Person MOBI “It’s a very strange time where fictions are presented to us as realities where reality seems fictional and it seems to me there’s no better way to write about that than to write a story about what lies are what fiction is and to use the form of the novel to do it”This is how Richard Flanagan himself sums up what his new novel is about I might add that apart from being an allegory on the age of post truth First Person is also a book about the nature of evil and how we get drawn to it Flanagan's protagonist Kif Kehlmann is an aspiring writer living in a downtrodden neighborhood in Tasmania and trying to make ends meet as an unskilled worker He is already the father

    First Person eBook ó Hardcover first epub, person epub, First Person MOBIGhostwriting—what a thankless task After countless hours of subsuming the self in another’s life story and personality you get hardly any credit not even a byline But for Kif Kehlmann the narrator of Flanagan’s seventh novel it’s a quick route to some cash Unfortunately for Kif his subject conman Siegfried Heidl is extremely unforthcoming about the basic facts of his past Instead author and subject start to mutually imagine and insinuate themselves into each other’s existence There’s no shortage here of consciously profound lines about identity and self creation but with no driving story to back them up the novel soon grows repetitive As Kif says of writing Heidl’s memoir “I may as well have used a pair of scissors to pick up spilled mercury” The striking metaphor also applies alas to the frustrations of this particular reading experienceSee my full review on
