    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBI agonized over whether to give Norwood three or four stars—which tells me three things 1 I’m prone to exaggeration; 2 I really need to get a life; and 3 Goodreads should add half star ratings instead of worrying about retarded mascot contests and adding mostly pointless Facebookish features to the site which inevitably cause that damnable Alice pictureBertrand Russell uote to show up again Get your act together Goodreads This site is too big now to be run out of somebody’s garage with a week old burrito oozing into the ventilation slits on the server This is the big league and the big league demands fractional stars—which brings

    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBWhat can I say about Norwood? I simply adored it Portis writes the most uncluttered prose imaginable and employs a deceptively simple style yet he has the eye of a poet The writing flows with such ease it can sometimes deceive the reader into thinking that the author doesn’t seem to be working very hard at all Simple stream of consciousness stuff you may think think again Portis’ use of language is masterly the characterisations are wonderful and the dialogues his cast enter into sublime It strikes me as verging on the criminal that Norwood was actually out of print for a while Hurumph I suspect that Cha

    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBPhenomenal I don't really know what to say I've been struggling to find a novel lately that completely captured my attention and pulled me fully into its world This one did the trick Norwood hooked me from the first page and never let go The characters are uirky without being stupidly over the top The dialogue is wonderfully Southern without being overwrought It's a perfect little novel you really could read in a single sitting It took me two sittings One thing that struck me about this novel I must say is its prodigious yet fascinatingly casual use of the 'n word' for a book published in 1966 I nkow the book is set in the mid 1950s but I still found it to be a bold but to my mind certainly not racist move during the ascendancy of the Black Power movement It certainly would have been the way these characters woul

    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBThis is the best one to read if you only read one other Portis novel besides ‘True Grit’ Everyone should read ‘True Grit’In a charming first novel Portis establishes his mastery of language in particular the Texarkana vernacular of well chosen detail that goes beyond apparent mundane triviality and really captures the American ambience as well as the human condition and of p

    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBI read this book in three sittings the longest while getting some shading work done a large side piece The three things that stand out is the specificity of the language the dryness of the humor and the protagonist's heroic transformation in spite of making bad decisions at every turn Norwood conducts himself with propriety which sad to say makes him something of a throwback yet one would be hard pressed to call him good natured In life I run from these kinds of people gui

    Norwood PDF È å PDF/EPUB history books.co norwood book, Norwood ePUBIf character development is your thing this book will not do for you By the end of the book I was uite certain that Norwood Pratt will be essentially unchanged at 75 I suspect that is one of the main points of the bookThis is a great road story about a Texarkanan Odysseus Some of the prose is memorable they had moved a lot back and forth along US Highway 82 in the oil fields and cotton patches between Stamps Arkansas and Hooks Texas There was something Mr Pratt dearly loved about that section of interstate concrete They clung to its banks like river rats
