Trailer Õ Spider PDF by ✓ Patrick McGrath I wish I could rate this higher but I didn t enjoy myself as much as I thought I would Although this is a well written novel, it left me gutted and empty inside, and perhaps I felt defeated and a little enraged, which I guess I knew this going in, so a low ended rating isn t quite fair to the author There were parts so screwy that I couldn t comprehend that I had to skim them quickly to continue with the story This was written first hand by a mentally unwell narrator, so had I continued to read it, I felt his crazy would seep into my brain, and I guess I don t need nor want that presently lolThe symbolism, in this book is absolutely beautiful, chock full of creepy crawlies, crows, cold wet and dark places, Spiders, insect collections, t While the US has Stephen King, the UK has Patrick McGrath Not quite the same, but many of McGrath s books are forays into a deviant reality, enough to nominate him as the lord of the macabre In this book, the prose is exquisitely eerie and convincing, bringing the reader into the mind of a truly disturbed person, the best attempt at doing this that I have ever read A chilling read. This is the author s second novel and third book following on the collection Blood and Water and Other Tales and his debut novel The Grotesque At least for the moment, I am reading his works in the order of publication I thought that the short stories were very good and fit their lengths well As noted in my review, I liked The Grotesque , but thought that I could have appreciated it After reflection, in addition to the reasons previously cited, I think that it was not suited to the length Longer or shorter I m not sure, but I think going in either direction might have enhanced the book. With Spider the story and its length feel entirely natural Is this because of the tale or the increasing maturity of the author I do not know, but, for me, the whole thing hung together better which Spider lontano anni luce da Follia , l altro romanzo di Mcgrath che considero il suo capolavoro Spider un viaggio nel mondo della follia, delle allucinazioni, un viaggio nella psicosi Un viaggio nella mente malata, le turbe psichiche di uno schizofrenico Non facile leggere un libro del genere, a causa delle continue regressioni tra presente e passato e il lettore non pu che prendere atto di ci che legge, scivola sempre pi nello stesso baratro del protagonista, finendo per farsi del male e vivendo la sua stessa angoscia Interessante se amate scoprire cosa si cela nella mente di uno psicopatico, in quanto Mcgrath si rivela straordinario nell indagare l animo umano, altrimenti lasciate perdere, in quanto la freddezza domina non solo nel protagonista, ma anche Spider Dennis, Dennis Spider Ognuno parte dell altro La parte buona e la parte cattiva Sono ricordi o sono immagini quegli avvenimenti che Dennis ricorda Devono essere ricordi, sono ricordi Mamma era buona, ma pap l ha uccisa Io sono diventato cattivo da allora e mi hanno rinchiuso Ora sono fuori e ricordo tante cose, si sono sicuro che sono ricordi, me lo ricordano anche le voci che dal solaio mi parlano Spider e Dennis, Dennis e Spider McGrath ci porta dentro la mente di Dennis a trovare Spider, a cercare la verit No, perch la verit la sappiamo gi , almeno crediamo di saperla e dobbiamo soltanto aspettare che Spider aiuti Dennis a trovarla Ma la verit che il manicomio ha scavato la mente di Dennis, lasciando Spider a reggere le fila di un equilibrio alquanto instabile McGrath ci porta dentro la mente folle di un uomo pazzo, attraversando il viale dei
Unfortunately, this is one of those books that I had not heard of until I inadvertently discovered the movie, which was pretty stellar as well and this may or may not have something to do with Ralph Fiennes It was difficult as I read the book not to picture him in it, and this is one of the reasons I like reading books before seeing the movie, but this did not distract from its odd beauty It s a story that revolves around a schizophrenic known as Spider That he earned this name from his mother when he was a young boy because of his fascination with the creatures becomes a metaphorical impetus to the story Spiders weave their own webs, in which they can move freely about, however, they are easily caught in the web of other Spiders Spider Cleg is released from an asylum where he was placed as a boy of ten He narrates the story but jum A aranha um animal habilmente matreiro que, ao tecer bel ssimas teias geometricamente hipnotizantes, usurpam a aten o de qualquer um que com elas se cruzarem Embevecidos por t o douta matem tica, as presas ficam enredadas e imobilizadas At que, num segundo fatal, recebem um beijo fatal de um animal que sabe esperar pelo momento oportuno para agir e conseguir cumprir os seus planos Dennis Cleg autodenomina se Spider, n o aparentando, no entanto, nenhum dom para tecel o nem t o pouco uma alma de espi o Apesar disso assume essa identidade e inicia uma triste narra o sobre a hist ria da sua vida entre uma m e submissa e um pai ausente Os passos dados sobre este fr gil fio de vida n o permitem manter este t nue equil brio e cedo surgem terceiras pessoas que, como uma bor I hated this book I wish I could give it 1 2 a star I quit half way throughI couldn t read any No matter if I read just one page or even a paragraphwhen I put this book down I felt nothing but gloom I tried to finish it to see where the story was going but I couldn t get past the awful feel the book gave out Maybe that is what it was going forif soit s not something I want to read Ever Ick Half the time I couldn t tell if what I was reading was in the present or the past Some paragraphs were over a page longand seemed to ramble I justhated it. This is my second book by Patrick McGrath, the first being Asylum which I really really liked and preferred to this one Having said that, it has nothing to do with the writing, which is so good, rather the storyline didn t hold my interest as much and I wasn t longing to get back to the book whenever I had to put it down I will look for this author s other books to read. Spider Is Gaunt, Threadbare, Unnerved By Everything From His Landlady To The Smell Of Gas He Tells Us His Story In A Storm Of Beautiful Language That Slowly Reveals Itself As A Fiendishly Layered Construction Of Truth And Illusion With Echoes Of Beckett, Poe, And Paul Bowles, Spider Is A Tale Of Horror And Madness, Storytelling And Skepticism, A Novel Whose Dizzying Style Lays Bare The Deepest Layers Of Subconscious Terror
