How to Be Well Read

How to Be Well Read Download ´ 9 review Ö E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ John Sutherland Of Apuleius's The Golden Ass arguably the first ever novel is followed by a consideration of Ian Fleming's Goldfinger The Handmaid's Tale is followed by Hangover Suare Jane Eyre by Jaws There are imposing Victorian novels entertaining contemporary thrillers and everything in between from dystopian works to romanceThe flavour of each is brilliantly evoked and its relative merits or demerits assessed At the same time John Sutherland shows how the work fits into a broader context whether that of the author's life or of othe. Any new John Sutherland is a delight I uite clearly haven t read enough of these although interestingly a few of them seem to be chosen deliberately as ones to avoid plus one is made upI shall of course try to read but I m still on 1001 BTRBYD

How to Be Well Read Download ´ 9 review Ö E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ John Sutherland R books from the same genre or period And he offers endless snippets of intriguing information did you know for example that the Nazis banned Bambi or that William Faulkner wrote As I Lay Dying on an upturned wheelbarrow; that Voltaire completed Candide in three days or that Anna Sewell was paid £20 for Black BeautyEncyclopedic and entertaining by turns this is a wonderful dip in book whose opinions will inform and on occasion no doubt infuriate It is also effectively a history of the novel in 500 or so bite sized pieces. This is definitely not the sort of book to read cover to cover It gives short synopses and some critical thoughts on a range of novels from airport blockbusters to culture so high that they re nearly impossible to read It s fun to see what the author an academic thinks of the books you ve read and I picked up a few to add to my To Read list
