    PDF/EPUB ar1web.co ð Bowlaway eBook Ç bowlaway ebok, Bowlaway PDF/EPUBMy first novel from McCracken and probably my last if the others are like this “Sprawling” is the best word for this book It spans like 15 different lives all stemming from one bowling alley in Massachusetts in the late 1800s It’s weirdly untethered despite everyone being related in some way to each other and I found myself getting and bored as the book went on There just isn’t a point I’ve had this same reaction to books like this before and had I known that Bowlaway wouldn’t have a point I wouldn’t have read it It’s just lots of random occurrences in people’s lives They don’t grow or reflect or overco

    PDF/EPUB ar1web.co ð Bowlaway eBook Ç bowlaway ebok, Bowlaway PDF/EPUBWho could walk away from this opening line?“They found a body in the Salford Cemetery but aboveground and alive”It sounds like the start of some gruesome murder mystery but then the wackiness worms in “The gladstone bag beside her contained one abandoned corset one small bowling ball one slender candlepin and under a false bottom fifteen pounds of gold”Death and life frosted with macabre comedy It’s why we’ve enjoyed Elizabeth McCracken since her debut novel “The Giant’s House” appeared than 20 years ago She never promises us freedom from pain but she always offers just enough heart to endure itHer new novel “Bowlaway” is a rueful family saga that begins at the start of the 20th century and revolves around a bowling alley in the small town of Salford Mass north of Boston “Our subject is love” the narrat

    PDF/EPUB ar1web.co ð Bowlaway eBook Ç bowlaway ebok, Bowlaway PDF/EPUBThis was an ARC I received from a publisher I had loved one of Elizabeth McCracken's short story collections Thunderstruck so I thought I would enjoy this book However it turned into one of those slogs that I ended up forcing myself to power throughI don't know how to describe this novel because it made no sense to me but the story mostly revolves around a bowling alley in a small New England town The bowling alley is founded by the mysterious Bertha Truitt Eventually it is run by her son his wife and various other family members The plot is so dull I can barely remember it Characters are mentioned in plotlines that are trickle away only to be brought back to life a hundred pages later The language falls over itself with its perceived cleverness The whole book just drags and drags Nothing very exciting happens So much of the story is about characters who are supposed to be full of mystery but they are mostly just frustrating and ridiculous I was sick of everything by the end of t

    PDF/EPUB ar1web.co ð Bowlaway eBook Ç bowlaway ebok, Bowlaway PDF/EPUBWhat a big sprawling novel this is It reads like an anecdotal history of a bowling alley and the family who starts it grows with it and feels trapped by it It’s about the farthest branches of a family tree and the stories we tell about them But the best part is McCracken’s writing—every few pages a line or a passage will sneak up on you and knock your socks off
