Brendan Cowell á 6 Summary

Brendan Cowell á 6 Summary Read & Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB á Brendan Cowell Summary How It Feels Ndships will be broken virginity lost love unleashed and secrets buriedA decade later one is dead one is famous two are getting married and the truth is about to erupt Wildly funny brutal tender and true How It Feels is a coming of age story set in Sydne. Hmmm what to say about this one I m a little torn I suppose I should say firstly that I couldn t put this down but at the same time I didn t enjoy it It was like watching a train crash in slow motion I couldn t tear my eyes away but it was horrific This book contains some of the most hideous characters I have ever encountered They are ALL very unlikeable particularly the protagonist Neil who is just about the most repulsive character ever This is a book about selfish narcissistic ego maniacs and their uest to find themselves There is a great deal of sex and drug use in this book As one of seemingly few people who detests drugs I found the casual day to day abuse of drugs depicted in this novel to be deeply irritating This novel is like reading a very well written diary the protagonist Neil is a very unreliable narrator and I was never sure whether Brendan Cowell was condemning him through his own words or just acting as an intermediary telling Neil s very depressing story So I suppose this book is good in a way it s extremely well written It feels very personal like the author is very intimately invested in this narrative If this is however just a story then I say Mr Cowell is a very talented author because although immensely unlikeable his characters are rich and passionate and I cared what happened to them even though they disappointed me endlesslyNot a pleasant read maybe like minded arty types who love drugs and uninhibited tortuous sex and think those who lead a normal life are losers who have given up on life might enjoy this and relate to it than I did

Brendan Cowell á 6 Summary Read & Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB á Brendan Cowell Summary How It Feels Y's Sutherland Shire with stopovers in Bathurst and London Brendan Cowell's electrifying debut novel is a devastating ode to youth capturing the beauty of growing up by the beach and the darkness which moves beneath its surface Because this is how it fee. This book engulfed me beyond anticipation that s for sureDefinately bluntly humourous which complements the raw language used in Cronk s drug induced experiences of his adult life and youth This is one of those books that has moments filled in numerous paragraphs that leave you gripping onto the words and their meaning The ending got to me not just because it was the ending and I had to farewell a very very troubled protagonist but for the ill fated desperation NeilCronk felt in the end that he felt was neccessary for everybody to carry on with their lives How it feels also gave me an insight into a side of life that has eluded me drugs of course ans obviously the repercussions this has on others and has truly opened my mind up to an emerging but alternative Australian literature

Summary How It Feels

Brendan Cowell á 6 Summary Read & Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB á Brendan Cowell Summary How It Feels I had no idea how free we were That's how free I wasAn old friend a best friend a first love and the dreamer Neil Cronk who connects them allFour schoolfriends are on the verge of adulthood and the next 12 hours will change the course of their lives Frie. The main character is arrogant egotistical and imploding ie an arse and it s hard to sympathise with him I understand that the story is about intensity of youth which can be stupid and destructive but these things make How it feels an uncomfortable readI suffered through the first third of the book waiting to understand the real motivations of Neil Cronk and his circle of troubled boys but it became apparent midway through that they had no effing idea either Each one is young dumb and full of frustrationThen I started feeling uncomfortable because Neil s narcissism and self indulgence reminded me of real life men that I shouldn t have dated But the callous errors of youth in this book are driven by than just inexperienceDo 30 year old Australian men really think of women as virgin whore even now Do people in God s Own country really want to spend their lives making money to build two storey houses enormous and savage with hard lines and plenty of glass in the street where they grew up Something is minging in the state of the Shire The story seemed to point to emotionally stunted parents and a legacy of malaise that further crippled their children s lives Maybe I m not male white or Sutherland ish enough to appreciate this story but by the last leg I just wanted to find out how the plotlines would fuse and finish it already The cadence of the plot was impressive as were occasional gems There something so appalling about living something so greedy and grotesue And I enjoyed the insights into the Y chromosoned brain I am not afraid to say that I was scared this bus was lurching forward lurching somewhere big and male and broken and I could feel it A good read for insight into male Aussie psyche I look forward to Cowell s next one
