Milkman Author Anna Burns Read ò 102 About her encounter with Milkman But when first brother in law sniffs out her struggle and rumours start to swell middle sister becomes 'interesting' The last thing she ever wanted to be T. No no no no noAs in hell no I didn t finish it I made it through a third of the book but I just couldn t take it any It was right up there with a root canal maybe worse because it reuired intense concentration A fascinating book that sadly was unreadable for meI feel bad I m bad mouthing this book First 60 pages I was on my knees worshiping this author for being such a freakin genius The sentences oh the sentences Uniue twisted revealing stunning The writing was very stylized and I loved the style Intricate personal clever unusual spot on it s very hard to describe the power of the writing The first sentence of the book is killer good And there was psychology oh how I love psychology I got yanked inside the author s head a hostage to her off kilter way of thinking Hot diggity I was forced to let go of my way of looking at the world and I bought into hers I did have to concentrate hard but I didn t care because I was enjoying myself so much I can t stress how much all of this was working I held tight to her visionuntil all the sudden the rubber band burst and the magic was gone Kaput The sentences that had seduced me now confused me and annoyed me No connection any zilchSo what the hell happened Too much politics too much philosophy which always makes my head spin My theory is that the author indulged herself and wrote every single word that came into her head She analyzed everything to death This led to long paragraphs about ideas sacrificing dialogue and plot with many abstract thoughts and compound words all in a row without room for a breath plus a zillion commas Sort of like I m doing here oh god no As I went from complaining to being pissed off I realized that I would have loved this if it were a short story I could have sustained that concentration for a shorter amount of time To have to endure 300 plus pages of this thick pea soup which became unpalatable to this pea brain no wayIt was just too friggin dense and there were too many tangents I had to reread and reread sentences until I had severe brain pain This writer she could take a spec on a wall and write a whole complicated treatise on it uestions that kids think of like why is the sky blue actually launches the author into analyzing just that in painful detail If I were a kid I would run away to play in my sandbox Granted it s not a simple uestion but you don t have to make it a PhD thesis either At first I was having a ball such a cool subject but as she droned on about it I changed my tuneI started realizing that I was dreading picking up this book and I thought Root canal This is like a root canal But a root canal would be over sooner Hey I told myself I can end this root canal this minute and simply stop reading I can make it shorter than a root canal damn straight I can Wouldn t it be fun to walk out in the middle of a root canal and suffer no conseuences And thus I did what I seldom do and especially with a book I was absolutely loving at first I ditched it This gave me both relief and distress Was I just too stupid to understand it all Were the sentences readable to my smart friends but too dense for my lesser brain I decided it didn t matter I read for pleasure and this had swerved into the torture category Oh you probably want to know what this book is about It s told in first person by an 18 year old girl in Belfast in the 1970s during the time of war No one has names only nicknames For example she refers to her boyfriend as her almost boyfriend There s a stalker who she calls the milkman and there s another stalker named Somebody McSomebody and a few other players who she refers to in funny ways I thought the name thing was clever The main character is the subject of gossip and she is criticized because she walks and reads You really get the sense of war and the accompanying fear Unfortunately the author s self indulgent tangents take us away from the characters and the plot Oh and a warning There s a dead animal scene that I could have done without I don t know why the author went there Gross and upsettingThis book won an award it did indeed I think the judges considered it great art but didn t think about how it fared as literature whether it was accessible whether the plot and characters popped out like they should Because I think it failedThe final thought before I gave up This thing will take me two months to read and life is too short So many books out there that will make me shiver Get me the hell out of the dentist s chair Running on Empty Contemplative Spirituality for Overachievers no Petty Pewter Gods no Mama Namibia no サイコメ 1 殺人鬼と死春期を noAs in hell Initiated Memoir of a Witch no I didn t finish it I made it through a third of the book but I just couldn t take it any It was right up there with

Milkman Author Anna Burns Read ò 102 O be interesting is to be noticed and to be noticed is dangerous Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay silence and deliberate deafness It is the story of inaction with enormous conseuence. This book represents the very best literary fiction has to offer as well as much of what puts people off Highly original with distinctively crafted sentence structure dense with meaning and plenty of things to say about both the political and the personal Lofty and lowly ideas Ach it s lovely Ach tisIt s also difficult Difficult to read which is why I m SO glad I listened to this on audio because of those sentences I lauded earlier Those long elliptical musical sentences that live in eually long paragraphs Difficult perhaps because of the analytical form which starts at generalities and then zeroes in and zeroes in and zeroes in again until we are at a speck of dust on a shelf There was a part about halfway through so analytical and philosophical she alllllllmost lost me not uite though she lost a star Ach it s doing my head in Ach fuckitSo I understand why this book has polarised reactions As for me I am still marvelling at the sparkling genius of it all Set in Ireland during the times of the troubles the story belongs to an 18 year old female narrator who is stalked by the milkman a notoriously dangerous renouncer of the state Burns does a remarkable job of telling the menacing experience of this stalking as well as the paranoid fear ridden society at large in which it is dangerous to be an individual And by individual I mean different and by different I mean think for yourself and by think for yourself I mean reading a book while walking or acknowledging than one colour that the sky could possibly be or going to the hospital when sick It s a time of great paranoia and suffocating fear This fear is certainly due to the political climate and it leaks out in ways that are not political The fear of being alone the fear of being shamed the fear of death People are unhappy mismatched in their relationships misunderstood and improperly labeled There is also a great deal of violence to people as well as animals Burns performs a skillful balancing act Despite the fear to name the sunset s colours that sunset is still there in all its glory Despite the darkness there is humour Despite all the blunders there is hope in the face of wee sisters in teenage infatuation born anew in a fifty year old woman in the life force that keeps a runner runningShe makes you work for it but Anna Burns delivers something worth working for hope

Summary Milkman Author Anna Burns

Milkman Author Anna Burns Read ò 102 In this unnamed city to be interesting is dangerous Middle sister our protagonist is busy attempting to keep her mother from discovering her maybe boyfriend and to keep everyone in the dark. Well that wasunpleasant I usually can read a 352 page novel in two to three days this took me a tortuous ten as on several occasions I looked at the book and just had no interest in reading any of it I was sorely tempted to DNF it but as a Booker completest I rallied myself to get through I m going to disappoint some by not giving this one of my infamous parodic takedown reviews but I am going to have to pass since this book not only sapped my creative juices but at several points my will to liveOthers have bizarrely mentioned how funny this is but I can only assume they find cancer boils and diarrhea eually hilarious The non plot barely contains enough incidents to hang a very short story upon and Burns going on and on and on about virtually nothing and then repeating herself once again for page after page after page with no paragraph breaks made me think she must be getting paid by the word At page 180 I mentioned this was reminding me of Proust whose magnum opus I spent 8 miserable months reading in 1981 up until now probably my most distressing reading experience And on p 231 she indeed mentions dear Marcel so I am assuming she was attempting to outdo him in louacious nonsensical verbiage with no payoffs So 12 a star for my unmasking her nefarious scheme and another 12 star for the gorgeous cover it s going at the bottom of this year s Booker rankings at least Snap had characters with than a single dimension and a plotPSso of course as in 3 out of the past 5 years my 13th ranked out of 13 from the Booker longlist has taken the prize but at least in previous years I found SOMETHING to admire in those winners this year Zippo Nada Doo dah This may be one of the most boring depressing dispiriting books ever put to paperPPS I am still puzzledamused at the continued hoopla about this piece of shite by its myriad cult like followers who persist in clogging my feed day after day all trying to outdo one another in their effusive encomiums I have now coined a new term to describe such Literary Circle Jerk Drink the Kool Aid kiddosPPPS So apparently this is the unkillable novel having now also inexplicably won the National Book Critics Circle Award And newly longlisted for the IMPAC Dublin Literary Award I STILL won t concede that there is ANYTHING worthy in this mess and would suggest that some mass hypnosis is sweeping the book awards
