    PDF The Gropes PDF/EPUB ½ ½ ukrbank.pro ½ gropes kindle, The Gropes PDF The Gropes is a terrifically funny Tom Sharpe novel Yes yes I can see my positive assessment runs counter to nearly all other reviews postedMany reviewers judge The Gropes a disappointment a story where author Tom Sharpe appears to have been simply following his long established comic formula to win some laughs after all the British author wrote The Gropes at age 80 with over a dozen sidesplitting novels already to his creditWe can understand such harsh judgement here since a reviewer usually relies on comparison as part of their stockpile of analytic tools in assessing a work freuently contrasting the book with the author's overall output And Tom Sharpe's oeuvre rates phenomenal novels like Riotous Assembly send up of the South African police force Porterhouse Blue send up of academia The Wilt Alternative send u

    PDF The Gropes PDF/EPUB ½ ½ ukrbank.pro ½ gropes kindle, The Gropes PDFIt's a 4 star read perhaps 35 But it's too short If it were longer it would get five It's light it's very funny but the book feels as if it's half a book I'm currently reading Full Moon by PG Wodehouse and it's similar in a fashion Except that Full Moon is a full book too Yes it's light and fluffy and wonderfully funn

    PDF The Gropes PDF/EPUB ½ ½ ukrbank.pro ½ gropes kindle, The Gropes PDFI keep thinking about this book so I felt compelled to write a review by the way continuing to think about a book after you've read it is not necessarily the sign of a good book I think it's already pretty evident that I did not enjoy this book As I'm at work here are a few bullet points why1 The characters were completely unlikeable They were not humourous and I could only sympathise with one of them I think his name was Horace I actually can't remember So while I could sort of sympathise with him he did not leave much of an impression I'm generally pretty good at remembering names Oh I did also like that gardener bloke mainly I think because he seemed to have a brain that worked But not enough to leave the house of mental crazy2 The plot was utterly and completely ridiculous I am uite happy to suspend my disbelief but there are limits I understand that it was supposed to be a farce and satirical but there are farces and th

    PDF The Gropes PDF/EPUB ½ ½ ukrbank.pro ½ gropes kindle, The Gropes PDFThis must be the most uninspired book by Tom Sharpe that I ever read The plot is tenuous at best and it ends in a fizzle unworthy of the writer of such gems as the Wilt series Thankfully the story is rather short and I managed to complete it fairly uickly no mean feat considering that I got bored of it relatively early and I trudged on simply because I hoped it would redeem itself in the end Sadly my hopes remained just that Avoid

    PDF The Gropes PDF/EPUB ½ ½ ukrbank.pro ½ gropes kindle, The Gropes PDFWorst ever from Tom Sharpe A shadow of his old self The final 40 50 pages are just embarrassing and reminded me of the little essays I wrote at school Did the author run out of time or energy and have to rush to finish the book?
