    eBook Men in Space Kindle ↠ Men in PDF \ ✓ ukrbank.pro space epub, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubThis is really good especially for a first novel McCarthy exerts a whole lot of control over both his characters and his prose which isn't always a great thing but works well here One of the main characters spends a portion of the book forging a painting and at one point McCarthy lists all the things he needs in order to do it whiting powder rabbit skin glue methylated spirits cotton wool ketone resin crystals white spirit beeswax jelly wire wool sandpaper carbon paper purified water garlic and so on The amount of detail that went into writing it reminded me of The Recognitions until I realized that it wasn't that that reminded me of it; it was the entire book itself Men in Space isn't a thick book nor is it particularly difficult but it shares many other characteristics with The Recognitions multiple points of view; a large bohemian cast; its European setting; a multi layered title; and most importantly its relentlessly thematic orienta

According to the blurb this is about a group of people chasing a stolen icon painting from Sofia to Prague and onwards Not technically a lie as there is a stolen icon but it spends about 90% of the book in Prague and we see very little of the chasing of it 'onwards' And the book itself wastes about 40% of its pages describing various people taking various drugs and having sex Why the editor didn't take the first 100 pages or so to the shredder is a mystery I ge

    eBook Men in Space Kindle ↠ Men in PDF \ ✓ ukrbank.pro space epub, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubI loved Tom McCarthy's Remainder and his Tintin and the Secret of Literature so I was looking forward to this and wasn't disappointed It's an often disjointed story set in Prague featuring British and American expats a rather self conscious group of Czech artists and literal Bohemians and local and Bulgarian gangsters A stolen icon forms the focus for this disparate group of people So far so thriller ish from my description here but Tom McCarthy raises his work above genre; he shows that all characters don't have to interract for events to impact on them Some characters seem to peter out but they are still there in the background going obliviously about their lives or you have to assume seeing them fall to pieces or change for the better It helped maybe that I know the Prague of the early to mid 1990s as I used to go there often and Men in Space really does capture the atmos

    eBook Men in Space Kindle ↠ Men in PDF \ ✓ ukrbank.pro space epub, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubExpat artists partying in Prague on the verge of Czechoslovakia splitting in two get in over their heads when one of them is asked to reproduce a strange painting But the book is about forgery and crime as much as Gaddis' The Recognitions was the writing is dense and detailed and unfolds non linearly There are letters notebook excerpts from a cop going mad geographical jumps loose ends debauchery aplenty In short all the ingredients I look for in fiction Plus the nice looking hardcover was on the 80% off table at a local bookstore along with copies of McCarthy's first book Remainder allegedly about a headwound victim reliving the same moment over and over and over Sounds eually good

    eBook Men in Space Kindle ↠ Men in PDF \ ✓ ukrbank.pro space epub, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubI chose this one based on McCarthy's Remainder which I really enjoyed odd as it was Had I read Men in Space first I don't think I'd want to explore any books by the author Mind you McCarthy's literary talent isn't in uestion here he can write and well but he chooses to forgo convention in favor ofthe heavily stylized studiedly flat disjointed narratives of it the all but ignored basic plot which has something to do with a copying and redistribution of a stolen icon and the European art world in general set around the separation of Czechoslovakia the general lack of co

    eBook Men in Space Kindle ↠ Men in PDF \ ✓ ukrbank.pro space epub, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubThe fact that I have little to say about this novel has induced an irrational compulsion to justify such a tepid response Perhaps expectations were too high going in I've been on a solid string of great new authors—thanks Goodreaders but I come away from this rather underwhelmed Not that anything was wrong with it per se; it simply remained flat nothing stood out during the read and nothing aside from the aforementioned compulsion lingered afterwards I und
