    The Stornoway Way ePUB ã The StornowayPDF EPUB ² stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFI wish I could give this a raving review but alas I cannot It started off nice enough with a snappy 'I'm gonna tell it like it is' feel and a lot of Scottish Gaelic footnotes As I read I felt a lack of narrative momentum and instead felt distracted by the narrator who seems focused on displaying his prowess as a man rather than telling a story I lost interest in everything but who could've written such arrogant jabber I started speculating on his looks how he managed to get publishedI read this book while on the ferry from Stornoway to Ullapool and even the proximity of location and environment couldn't make me care about the narrator A first person narrative which is like a drunken diary or a diary of drunkenessdrunk mess I usually like such things but this narrator rubbed me the wrong way He didn't seem to have any focus for the book Is it about the death of culture the ways in which a culture dies the death of an individual the ability for human growth the in

    The Stornoway Way ePUB ã The StornowayPDF EPUB ² stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFAn antidote to the coming of age novel this unflinching portrait of a chronic cock up artist R Stornoway or “arse torn away” returning to the titular town on the Isle of Lewis Outer Hebrides is a witty whisky sodden novel told in various episodic chapters with hilarious spurious Gaelic or Stornowegian terms of the author’s invention in footnotes The novel’s tone switches from drunken childhood nostalgia to tortured self examination with skill keeping the reader on side with strong LOLs and smart observations and in spite of the uestionable framing device used makes for an ac

    The Stornoway Way ePUB ã The StornowayPDF EPUB ² stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFMy bookcrossing reviewI really enjoyed this book It was a very Scottish story dealing with alcoholism and subconscious self destruction although this book really only looked at the way his soul was destroyed by alcohol abuse whereas another Scottish writer AL Kennedy will scare you with the full story very depressing it is too Mus

    The Stornoway Way ePUB ã The StornowayPDF EPUB ² stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFThis is a very interesting book The narrator a native of the Outer Hebridean island of Lewis has a lovehateself destructive relationship to himself to alcohol and his hometown of Stornoway The novel has interesting things to say about the state of Gaelic culture in Scotland and also the state of Scotland in the world both as a nation and non nation Bits of it are uite dark so it's not what I would call a summer read but overall it was thought provoki

    The Stornoway Way ePUB ã The StornowayPDF EPUB ² stornoway book, The Stornoway free, The Stornoway Way PDFNo plot meandering aimless But I was engaged and drawn in by the witty writing You will find yourself drawn into the mind of a completely nihilistic cynical drunken protagonist And just when you think you can take no you will find yourself laughing out loud from the hilarity of the writing The somewhat pointless story line and surprisingly sober ending is made endurable only by the great writing and moments of humor
