Milkman Author Anna Burns Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free About her encounter with Milkman But when first brother in law sniffs out her struggle and rumours start to swell middle sister becomes 'interesting' The last thing she ever wanted to be T. No no no no noAs in hell no I didn t finish it I made it through a third of the book but I just couldn t take it any It was right up there with a root canal maybe worse because it reuired intense concentration A fascinating book that sadly was unreadable for meI feel bad I m bad mouthing this book First 60 pages I was on my knees worshiping this author for being such a freakin genius The sentences oh the sentences Uniue twisted revealing stunning The writing was very stylized and I loved the style Intricate personal clever unusual spot on it s very hard to describe the power of the writing The first sentence of the book is killer good And there was psychology oh how I love psychology I got yanked inside the author s head a hostage to her off kilter way of thinking Hot diggity I was forced to let go of my way of looking at the world and I bought into hers I did have to concentrate hard but I didn t care because I was enjoying myself so much I can t stress how much all of this was working I held tight to her visionuntil all the sudden the rubber band burst and the magic was gone Kaput The sentences that had seduced me now confused me and annoyed me No connection any zilchSo what the hell happened Too much politics too much philosophy which always makes my head spin My theory is that the author indulged herself and wrote every single word that came into her head She analyzed everything to death This led to long paragraphs about ideas sacrificing dialogue and plot with many abstract thoughts and compound words all in a row without room for a breath plus a zillion commas Sort of like I m doing here oh god no As I went from complaining to being pissed off I realized that I would have loved this if it were a short story I could have sustained that concentration for a shorter amount of time To have to endure 300 plus pages of this thick pea soup which became unpalatable to this pea brain no wayIt was just too friggin dense and there were too many tangents I had to reread and reread sentences until I had severe brain pain This writer she could take a spec on a wall and write a whole complicated treatise on it uestions that kids think of like why is the sky blue actually launches the author into analyzing just that in painful detail If I were a kid I would run away to play in my sandbox Granted it s not a simple uestion but you don t have to make it a PhD thesis either At first I was having a ball such a cool subject but as she droned on about it I changed my tuneI started realizing that I was dreading picking up this book and I thought Root canal This is like a root canal But a root canal would be over sooner Hey I told myself I can end this root canal this minute and simply stop reading I can make it shorter than a root canal damn straight I can Wouldn t it be fun to walk out in the middle of a root canal and suffer no conseuences And thus I did what I seldom do and especially with a book I was absolutely loving at first I ditched it This gave me both relief and distress Was I just too stupid to understand it all Were the sentences readable to my smart friends but too dense for my lesser brain I decided it didn t matter I read for pleasure and this had swerved into the torture category Oh you probably want to know what this book is about It s told in first person by an 18 year old girl in Belfast in the 1970s during the time of war No one has names only nicknames For example she refers to her boyfriend as her almost boyfriend There s a stalker who she calls the milkman and there s another stalker named Somebody McSomebody and a few other players who she refers to in funny ways I thought the name thing was clever The main character is the subject of gossip and she is criticized because she walks and reads You really get the sense of war and the accompanying fear Unfortunately the author s self indulgent tangents take us away from the characters and the plot Oh and a warning There s a dead animal scene that I could have done without I don t know why the author went there Gross and upsettingThis book won an award it did indeed I think the judges considered it great art but didn t think about how it fared as literature whether it was accessible whether the plot and characters popped out like they should Because I think it failedThe final thought before I gave up This thing will take me two months to read and life is too short So many books out there that will make me shiver Get me the hell out of the dentist s chair

Milkman Author Anna Burns Summary ´ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free O be interesting is to be noticed and to be noticed is dangerous Milkman is a tale of gossip and hearsay silence and deliberate deafness It is the story of inaction with enormous conseuence. Many writers strive for a fresh vibrant distinctive voice few achieve it as well as Anna Burns does in this novel It was fitting that I read this while reading Toni Morrison s Beloved because both novels have a fresh and innovative female voice at the helm and both very cleverly and subtly bring heaps of searing intelligence to the essentially uneducated worlds they depict Milkman is an evocation of a world in which bigotry rules supreme And this bigotry is mocked relentlessly with often hilarious biting ingenious satire No one in the novel gets a name as if names in this world are meaningless Everyone is tagged like walls Milkman himself probably a candidate for most sinister villain of the decade isn t a milkman at all He s the sum total of fearful rumour a veritable stalking bogeyman Two things though are certain Firstly he possesses intimidating authority as an enforcer of the repressive status uo And secondly he drives a white van one of misogyny s most benign yet potent symbols When he begins driving alongside our narrator who likes to read while walking her autonomy identity and living space all suddenly shrink under his menacing interest Though there s no overt sexual harassment the narrator explains her predicament At the time age eighteen having been brought up in a hair trigger society where the ground rules were if no physically violent touch was being laid upon you and no outright verbal insults were being levelled at you and no taunting looks in the vicinity either then nothing was happening so how could you be under attack from something that wasn t there At eighteen I had no proper understanding of the ways that constituted encroachmentThe armed forces of that country over the water pose little tangible threat in Milkman What everyone most fears is the opinion of their neighbours Because this is an us and them world which permits no nuance of allegiance You re either with us or you re against us Everyday life is an obstacle course of not providing the local gossip mongers any reason to single you out To be singled out is to invite suspicions of belonging to them not us The narrator s maybe boyfriend gets into trouble when he wins part of a Bentley car in a raffle To his neighbours this small piece of engineering is a symbol of the country over the water This scene is one of the many brilliant withering mockeries of mob mentality ideological paranoia and the underhand blood lust innate in draconian repressive measures Another of my favourite scenes is when the narrator tries to convince her mother she s still attractive and resorts to the tactic of throwing high sounding numbers at her just as politicians often do on our TV screens So Milkman is about much than Belfast during the troubles It s about the hard and stifling lines that are drawn up for us and the often exhausting struggle to push them back And it s brilliant
