    Kindle Sebastian Faulks ´ ´ A Fool's Alphabet eBook À A Fool's PDF/EPUB or fool's free, alphabet epub, A Fool's pdf, A Fool's Alphabet KindleNot as good as I thought it’d be It was rather stilted in its writing and the characters didn’t really flesh out enough that I learnt to care about them over the duration of the book

    Kindle Sebastian Faulks ´ ´ A Fool's Alphabet eBook À A Fool's PDF/EPUB or fool's free, alphabet epub, A Fool's pdf, A Fool's Alphabet KindleArranging a story via place names in alphabetical order is a bit of a gimmick and although Pietro's story does emerge the shifting time periods presumably necessitated by the imposed reuirement to follow an alphabetical order of place names do cause some confusion I found myself referring back to previous chapters to see what had come before and what after the one I was readingTowards the end of the book there is a reflection on the alphabet which casts some light on the genesis of Faulk's tale I uote The alphabet was the means by which a place became articulate Without a name it was no than a collection of buildings or a natural landmark But although places were given this access to articulacy their single utterance was void of meaning Even names whose derivation was clear like Newtown did not reveal the character of the place A gi

    Kindle Sebastian Faulks ´ ´ A Fool's Alphabet eBook À A Fool's PDF/EPUB or fool's free, alphabet epub, A Fool's pdf, A Fool's Alphabet KindleGreat book to finish the year with Beautifully crafted with 26 chapters it traces through the alphabet in place names which concern the main character Pietro Russell half Italian It's a lovely story and although it leaps through time periods it really works and you don't lose sight of Pietro even though it travels through generations I really liked it

    Kindle Sebastian Faulks ´ ´ A Fool's Alphabet eBook À A Fool's PDF/EPUB or fool's free, alphabet epub, A Fool's pdf, A Fool's Alphabet KindleThere is nothing wrong with this book but it just doesn't soar to some of the places you expect a Sebastian Faulks novel to soar toThe mechanism for delivering the book is interesting 26 places introduced alphabetically where a different piece of mosaic making up the life of Pietro Russell is introduced But don't be thrown by the device it doesn't add but nor does it detract from the book as a wholeFor a book which time shifts so easily and which shifts narrative viewpoints fairly regularly the plot is reasonably easy to follow There is no great sophistry to it despite the apparent sophistication of the mechanismMaybe what disappoints most is the main protagonist himself usually in a Faulks novel you find yourself totally engrossed in the main character whether you like

    Kindle Sebastian Faulks ´ ´ A Fool's Alphabet eBook À A Fool's PDF/EPUB or fool's free, alphabet epub, A Fool's pdf, A Fool's Alphabet KindleAwfulThis novel reads like a commentary to a scrap book of sorts with long descriptions of random 'pictures' presented to us alphabetically as fragments of his life's memoriesThis budle of excerpts is uninteresting and badly researched It often felt like amateur writing Anyone who knows anything about post war Italy would know that in Sorrento in 1958 the last thing you'd expect to find in a local resturant is typical northern dishes such as risotto chicken and chips and tiramisùSadly the book does not even work as a biography since Pietro's character is not developed You never get the feeling that you are getting to know him better as his memoirs unfold I read this book to the end hoping that it would somehow suddenly surprise me redeem itself and live up to Birdsong but to my disappointment it did not
