Мисия Лондон free read È PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Alek Popov × 6 summary Alek Popov is a leading figure on Bulgaria's contemporary literature scene Having written numerous award winning short stories and scripts which have been translated into over a dozen languages Mission London is his first novel In a style something like Pulp Fiction it tackles the behaviour of Bulgaria's new elite on the eve of accessionThe action is set in an Eastern European embassy in London Alek himself worked in the Bulgarian embassy in London in 1997 98 The background of the book is very real for this reason I wasn't intending to write this book actually but over time the mate. I am getting a bit softer with the ratings I think In fact I am not completely sure whether to give Mission London 3 or 4 stars but since it is one of the few contemporary novels I read recently that was actually decently written ok plus it s Bulgarian I thought it should get 4 from meMission London is a short ish book set in present day London with the story taking place in or around the Bulgarian embassy in the UK It is a humorous novel about the inner struggles and often uite petty ambitions of employees of the embassy The back cover of the edition I read had an excerpt from a review of the book which says It is very tempting to compare Alek Popov s self irony and piercing satire with those of classical Bulgarian author and Popov s namesake Aleko Konstantinov I have to admit I felt similarly while reading the book one can t help but make associations with Bai Ganyo as one reads about the skirmishes and schemings of the Bulgarians at the UK embassy It is perhaps all too superficial of me to take issue with precisely this underlying theme of the novel I know and understand some of the issues and fears that the characters in Mission London face but knowing also how different and complex emotions can be for a person in a foreign environment I can t help but think that Popov presents things a bit one sidedly This of course could be Popov s choice for very good reasons and taking a nuanced look would not perhaps have helped drive the book s point across as convincingly but the fact is I feel as if Popov relied a bit too much on formulaic set ups Nevertheless the writing is unobtrusive and even I would say elegant the plot is uite absorbing despite the handful of far fetched moments especially but not only towards the end and I would not hesitate to recommend the book to a Bulgarian and hell even non Bulgarian friend Being convinced that it is indeed very difficult to write good humor books especially on contemporary topics without sounding too hipster y vulgar or over political I say Alek Popov did a pretty good job Hope to see Bulgarian books of this and higher uality soon A lingua de fora uite petty ambitions of employees of the embassy The back cover of the edition I read had an excerpt from a review of the book which says It is very tempting to compare Alek Popov s self irony and piercing satire with those of classical Bulgarian author and Popov s namesake Aleko Konstantinov I have to admit I felt similarly while reading the book one can t help but make associations with Bai Ganyo as one reads about the skirmishes and schemings of the Bulgarians at the UK embassy It is perhaps all too superficial of me to take issue with precisely this Govinda The Aryavarta Chronicles #1 underlying theme of the novel I know and La belle au bois dormant understand some of the issues and fears that the characters in Mission London face but knowing also how different and complex emotions can be for a person in a foreign environment I can t help but think that Popov presents things a bit one sidedly This of course could be Popov s choice for very good reasons and taking a nuanced look would not perhaps have helped drive the book s point across as convincingly but the fact is I feel as if Popov relied a bit too much on formulaic set No Breaking My Heart Barefoot William Beach #5 ups Nevertheless the writing is A Biography of Innovations unobtrusive and even I would say elegant the plot is Ni arte ni parte uite absorbing despite the handful of far fetched moments especially but not only towards the end and I would not hesitate to recommend the book to a Bulgarian and hell even non Bulgarian friend Being convinced that it is indeed very difficult to write good humor books especially on contemporary topics without sounding too hipster y vulgar or over political I say Alek Popov did a pretty good job Hope to see Bulgarian books of this and higher Ni arte ni parte uality soon

Мисия Лондон free read È PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Alek Popov × 6 summary Rial started accumulating and I felt I must write something about it There was too much precious material to be lost It's the small details that I like they are completely realAs for the characters Some of the main characters have something to do with real people but in the end it turned out that they evolved into archetypes of characters from the Transition The Transition the time after the fall of Communism was a period of change from the old Socialist ways to democracy This brought with it struggles for a new identityThe main strands of the plot chart the struggle for representat.

successfully adapted into a film by Dimitar Mitovski which was a box office hit in Bulgaria in 2010 outperforming even Avatar In the second half of the book Popov is doing a little bit too much some developments are too forced and exaggerated for my taste and one of two loose ends are not properly tied up But it is definitely a lot of fun to read this novel that has plenty of tempo and offers excellent entertainment during the biggest part of the book Some critics compared him with John Irving or TC Boyle That s aiming a little bit too high but Popov is definitely a very talented author It
