    Epub Joseph Anton A Memoir Kindle ✓ Joseph Anton eBook · myportal.pro joseph book, anton ebok, memoir mobile, Joseph Anton mobile, Joseph Anton A Memoir MOBII’m going to review this book without actually talking about it though I don’t think it really matters I read a lot though I also write a lot I write short stories poetry and essays I write reviews every day to practice writing and to capture my thoughts on certain topics I even have a 1st draft of a fantasy novel that is some weird hybrid of Avatar and A Game of Thrones that I wrote when I was nineteen It’s garbage full of clichés and driven by a lack of imagination My point is I read to write and I am always trying to get better I am mainly a critic though the I read the creative ideas I get Somewhere around half way through Joseph Anton I stopped reading and I started writing really writing There was a line in the text that stood out to me; I have lost in since though Rushdie emphasised the use of personal experience combined with

    Epub Joseph Anton A Memoir Kindle ✓ Joseph Anton eBook · myportal.pro joseph book, anton ebok, memoir mobile, Joseph Anton mobile, Joseph Anton A Memoir MOBIIn the first few chapters I was a bit surprised at the gossipy somewhat catty tone and figured it would be chatty and light and fun but alas petty grievances aired endless names dropped revenge exacted for real or perceived insults of either the author's conduct or writing ex wives trashed The treatment of these unfortunate women is surprisingly childish; he sounded like a preteen talking about how victimized he was by Padma Lakshmi and his second wife He also reveals himself to be something of a misogynist when he details how crazy yet another ex wife is All personal responsibility is absolved when he says he felt guilty about treating someone badly or that they manipulated him into it And maybe by writing a memoir in the third personBut most disappointing of all is the way the author speaks of religion He was obviously tremendo

    Epub Joseph Anton A Memoir Kindle ✓ Joseph Anton eBook · myportal.pro joseph book, anton ebok, memoir mobile, Joseph Anton mobile, Joseph Anton A Memoir MOBI Update 92112 now that I'm reading this it's kind of tedious I don't think Rushdie's 3rd person affectation works well at all It made me remember I don't actually like Rushdie's writing all that much Gave up on The Satanic Verses after 20 pages I guess I got caught up in his life story and forgot about his ualities as a writer which is ironic cos it's precisely the condition he so deplores his literary ualities getting eclipsed by his status as a current eventI think his crazy life does merit a biography I just wish someone else had written this A disinterested third party would have been useful cos as it stands this book comes across as a lot of score settling vindictive gossiping and not being above it allingLooking forward to this especially after reading his essay that just came out in the New Yorker The Disappeared How the fatwa changed a writer's lifeIt really bugs me that religious nuts can incite people to murder over a cartoon
