    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFThe new American Consul arrives in Ayer Hitam Malaysia and immediately finds the expats are a mixed bunch Initially I thought Ayer Hitam was going to be a fictional place but it isn't it is a real place in the state of Johor just north of the Singapore borderThe books takes the form of chapter length short stories The are slightly interconnected in that the characters reoccur the key characters are present in almost every chapter but importantly they are told in the order they occur they are linear The closest example I can recall is Narayan's Malgudi stories set in the fictional town of Malgudi Again those stories are stand alone but interconnectedThere is a good variety of stories mostly about people but also a Christmas party visitors the drama society a murder mystery a witch doctor and a mix of other things until the consuls departure is imminent An easy short read that perhaps doesn't reach the highs of Theroux's other full length fiction exa

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFSuperb collection of short stories set in the Malaysian town of Ayer Hitam in the rubber jungles of Johore Back in the 70s Paul Theroux spent a couple of years in the Far East around the time that the American military effort in Vietnam was collapsing in shame and acrimony Theroux was only 36 when he published this book but on this evidence he could have been mentioned in the same breath as Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad as a chronicler of the East had he been content to plough this

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFWow my opinion of this book is improved Not that it was bad before but in the first few stories in this collection I had detected too much of a Graham Greene influence and too many of the stories or ideas for them seemed to be in self conscious homage to Somerset Maugham's Far East storiesBy the time I got than a couple of stories into the collection I began to appreciate the uniue ualities of Theorux's writing This is worthy of at least a paper length discussion but Theroux's style is understated and unassuming At first he seems deceptively transparent rather simple and his style is so natural it seems pretty much unadornedBut there is a post Vietnam ethos in these postcolonial tales of the Far East that is anything but simple There is also a uniue American literary uality to the writing which sets it apart from the work of Greene and Maugham who despite their personal beliefs were nonetheless citizens of a country which was one of the if not the largest colonial power in th

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFThis is a story book; every chapter a different anecdote on South East Asian life as an expat It holds different writing styles; horror romance travel satire Each is compelling relaying a deeper message than the story itself It can be read as a portrayal of human character and of a parable of universal dreams and flaws The writing is very fluid and pleasant Theroux doesn't spoon feed you his message the reader is left to draw her own conclusionsI loved the last chapter it's an essay about traveling life and writing in general

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFA young and sensitive diplomat arrives at Ayer Hitam a remote Malaysian town in the heart of a dwindling rubber and palm plantation region with a brief to close the American Consulate there The book is the recounting of the diplomat's experiences opinions and findings about the place and its people The events that trigger the stories are nothing if not dramatic starting with his arrival meeting with a garrulous woman who turns out to b

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFPaul Theroux wrote The Consul's File in 1972 no doubt drawing from his experiences teaching in Singapore in the late 60s The stories are set in Ayer Hitam a remote Malaysian town in the heart of a dwindling rubber and palm plantation region I suspect he chose this area to deflect criticism of people he may have encountered in Singapore that served as models of the characters in the consul's story of people he met there I see this novel with a central character the stand in for the author recounting stories of people he has met in a particular place is one that he would reuse to great effect again in Hotel Honolulu I think this character allowed Theroux to give his impression of SE Asia at that time for example He was what some people called a reactionary; he was brutal and blind his fun was beer It had swollen his little body and made him grotesue a fat red man who the memory is tolerable than the experience sat in the C

    MOBI Paul Theroux ó ó The Consul's File PDF/EPUB Ó The Consul's Kindle - consul's book, file kindle, The Consul's epub, The Consul's File PDFWavering at the 35 mark This book's made up of a series of colonialist vignettes At times I couldn't believe this was set in the 70s as the stultifying club atmosphere and casual racism could have been lifted straight out of a Kipling bookIn spite of this Theroux's snapshots felt real or as real as any of that bizarre world can feel The gothic horror story added a much needed change in tempo
