    DOWNLOAD A Guide to Berlin ´ E-book or Kindle E-pub A Guide to BerlinIt's difficult to come to grips with A Guide to BerlinThe format of six individuals coming together telling 'speak memories' needs the stories and the voices of the story tellers to resonate and although there are interesting ideas underlying the memory stories they don't convince or engage Sometimes the voices are just flat; sometimes overblown with hyperbole There are some connections between some of the individuals who meet for these highly contrived and uite formal 'speak memories' sessions but they never get to the stage of being a group they remain an 'experimental community'References to Nabokov abound from butterfly patterns and reproductive organs at the scientific end to what I presume are some of Nabokov's theories about writing focus on detail as a means of understanding the world Certainly there are moments here of beautifully descriptive writing of the white snow the ocean sound of cars driving in the wet But many of the Na

    DOWNLOAD A Guide to Berlin ´ E-book or Kindle E-pub A Guide to BerlinWhile the first part of this novel is sometimes a little tedious and self indulgent it may be worth persevering Some of the ideas raised are really interesting Gail Jones explores how memories are often made up of small observations like the tiles on a train station wall; how courage may be a matter of putting yourself in a position where you can't turn back; how it is to grow up with silent holocaust survivors as parents and how a recluse 'hikikimori' can be lured from his bedroom by his future wife Unfortunately these ideas are bogged down in protagonist Cass' riveting repetitive musings about such concerns as the hole in her boot which I suppose may have been symbolic for something The latter part of the novel was compelling and frankly pretty eerie Think 'Crime and Punishment' and 'The Secret History'
