John Harding É 4 Summary

review ´ One Big Damn Puzzler PS 104 Logic strange notions about sex and addictive rendering of English to moments of aching sadness as much as life affirming farce this exuberantly original novel confirms John Harding as one of contemporary fiction's most entertaining and observant chroniclers of the human conditio. I was reading this book right before Zoe was born Actually I went into labor before I could finish it and we had to return it to the library About a month after she was born we went back to the library and my Kustav Klimt bookmark was still inside the book so I checked it out and finished the book It was one of those books that make you laugh out loud The characters are so interesting and different I highly recommend this book It about this man who happens to have a hilarious case of OCD who is in charge of investigating a crime that happened many years ago and repaying this small village back for the crime There is also an anthropologist who is not too happy that this guy has money to give to this island village and how it will change the way they live

review ´ One Big Damn Puzzler PS 104 On a remote South Pacific island paradise an elderly tribesman is translating Hamlet into local Pidgin English Much to his annoyance his struggles with the Bard are interrupted by the arrival of an unexpected visitor William Hardt is a young American lawyer he has Obsessive Compul. I ve been reading a lot of tales set on islands lately fiction memoir history this is strictly coincidence other than perhaps a subconscious desire to isolate myself I picked this up entirely at random I swear and once again I m on an isolated South Pacific island with a strange cast of characters an unusual and fictional societal structure and a wearingly sympathetic narrator As in The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society no fault here OBDP came first and a couple other recent offerings the schtick is the effect of litratoor on a naive society I think we can be done with this shtick now for a while In OBDP the litratoor is Hamlet and I like that up until the part when the author tries to parallel events in his novel uite literally in time with events in the play I mean so literally that the play is actually being performed on stage while the novel s forward motion takes place in the audience Harding is uite fond of allusions so much so that a reader might feel battered by them I was with him for the island life seuences hanging on for the OCD vignettes but completely off the bus with the 911 references Even now in 2011 including 911 references in fiction is tricky business We all as inhabitants on this earth experienced it but we certainly experienced it differently and remember or memorialize it in our own ways Harding makes a big assumption in our perception of that event in rounding out allusions in his fictional tale The planes were crashed by suicide terrorists this really affects Harding but to me that s the least of my concerns from that event The 911 bit happens well toward the end of the book kind of where you least expect it but after the first allusion to a clear fall morning you know exactly where it s going and you re not completely willing to go there Oh come on do we have to Well it turns out I don t think we did That little dollop of moralizing on top of an already very confected conclusion was just too many calories for my taste I really liked this book when it just stayed happily and lazily on the island I didn t need to see New York City or our narrator s childhood From time to time it was a nice scene break until you enter 911 and you can call the whole scene broken All in all I like Harding s technical skill his character development and his imagination but I think he s too devoted to making it all MEAN SOMETHING I might have stopped reading on page 357 and been perfectly satisfied but like Harding s perception of an American I m a little offended he served me than necessary and I m feeling a touch of bloat

review ´ One Big Damn Puzzler PS 104 Sive Disorder and he has come to help And from that moment on nothing will ever be the same For what and who he finds there will challenge both his and our values and our ideas about love life and even deathBursting with good things from the islanders themselves with their curious. More like 2 12 stars The seed of the plot had a lot of potential and the British humor had me laughing aloud a few times but on the whole I found the book rather scattered The plot wanders around uite a bit without a lot of forward momentum and spends a lot of time on tangents concentrating on the main character s OCD This was funny at times but got a little old I also thought the characters on a whole were rather cartoonish the Americans are either boorish or clueless the one British character is all dry humor refined and the natives are rather patronizingly naive At the same time the story did have some rather poignant moments and I have to give kudos to the author for inventing an entire pigeon language that was both completely comprehensible and very funny So not bad I d be curious about the author s other books which got him popular but I can t say I really liked this book
