    Ebook ´ Caribou Island eBook Ø caribou kindle, island download, Caribou Island PDFEPUB Caribou Island is a masterpiece Set in the remote bleakness of water soaked small town Alaska this is a tale of desperation failure of man versus nature but also of man so arrogant and self involved so removed from reality that he does not bother to properly prepare for the battle Some hope is gleaned some battles are won but the war seen here is a dark suffocating presence Alaska felt like the end of the world a place of exile Those who couldn’t fit anywhere else came here and if they couldn't cling to anything here they just fell off the edge These tiny towns in a great expanse enclaves of despair Whereas most fiction floats atop a watery base of prose Vann’s characters and story sit amidst a thick stew of imagery His writing has the density the economy of a short story No event occurs that does not contribute to the underlying momentum or to enha

    Ebook ´ Caribou Island eBook Ø caribou kindle, island download, Caribou Island PDFEPUB Because you can choose who you'll be with but you can't choose who they'll becomeThis is a story of Gary and Irene not of an island The island exists physically and figuratively but this is a story of them Their love envy and hatred of one another His failings and her failure to realize it too uicklyThey've been together for thirty years both in their middle 50's and retired; they have 2 children one that loves and one that ignores The men in the family have always done what they wanted to do walking out under pressure The women tagging along while they live their life through their men being the doormat of their existence; the welcome sign shining always on the outside but furious withinPain consumes Irene Pain of an unknown source The blocked out pain of her Mom's suicide in childhood and wasting her years with a man that

    Ebook ´ Caribou Island eBook Ø caribou kindle, island download, Caribou Island PDFEPUBNot long ago I was mesmerized by David Vann’s exceptional and perceptive collection Legend of a Suicide – a mythology of his father’s death I wondered whether his first full length novel would capture the magic and raw energy of that astonishing bookThe answer I’m pleased to say is yesBeware Caribou Island is NOT for readers who are looking for “likeable characters” and Hollywood type endings It ventures into dark emotional territory that’s not always comfortable to reside in – the same type of territory that’s inhabited by say Martha and George in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff In other word

    Ebook ´ Caribou Island eBook Ø caribou kindle, island download, Caribou Island PDFEPUBDavid Vann uses no uotation marks throughout this bleak depressing read Is his refusal to use uotation marks supposed to be some new Style of writing like texting Why not just throw out all punctuation We could all write in one long rambling paragraph Eventually we could even leave out the spacing between words I HATE what is being done to literature by those too lazy or too unlearned to write properly Vann's imagination is just so bleak so depressing he should see a doctor He obviously thinks everyone feels this way What a revelation it would be for him to get on medication discover there are things to like and love about life I certainly can believe he wrote Legend of a Suicide because this book sounds like he is suicidal T
