    The Boat (PDF) I have to admit I am still ten pages from finishing this book but I can't do it any With the exception of the first story this book bored me to tears I give it two starts instead of one because Le is a great writer At fear of sounding like a literary agent I will still say that I couldn't relate to any of these characters or their lives And this is because the writer didn't make it easy for me to relate to them Le is an

characters The Boat

Free download The Boat 109 characters The Boat A stunningly inventive deeply moving fiction debut stories that take us from the slums of Colombia to the streets of Tehran; from New York City to Iowa City; from a tiny fishing village in Australia to a foundering vessel in the South China Sea in a masterly display of literary virtuosity and feeling In the magnificent opening story Love and Honor and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice a young writer is urged by his friends to mine his father. sigh Where do I even begin with what went wrong with this book It started off so well Certain scenes are so well described that I was really invested as a reader However I hate the way he ends each story or rather doesn t The first story felt like a good introduction chapter to a novel except it s not a novel it was just a short story on its own In turn it made the story have a horrible ending with a uick sum up of what the character understood from the events in a few sentences It s an interesting book because it asks the uestion of whether or not anybody can write a story about a time place culture language etc that is not their own I think it s possible because he does it decently in twothree of the stories However the rest were crap I didn t believe them They lacked a certain insight of someone who has lived that life or lived in that place or understood that culture Write what you know should be plastered across his computer screen or above his typewriter The stories were like the Hollywood version of certain stories No wonder certain critics were giving such high praise of it These stories were stories that were clearly imagined about other places and other times while the author rests comfortably in a pampered lifestyle thousands of miles from the actual locations

The Boat

Free download The Boat 109 characters The Boat 's experiences in Vietnam and what seems at first a satire of turning one's life into literary commerce becomes a transcendent exploration of homeland and the ties between father and son Cartagena provides a visceral glimpse of life in Colombia as it enters the mind of a fourteen year old hit man facing the ultimate test In Meeting Elise an aging New York painter mourns his body's decline as he prepares to meet his daughter on the eve of her Carnegie. So looking at other reviews for this book it was clearly a love or hate book and unfortunately I am far close to the hate end of the scale the an the love endThis is a collection of seven short stories by a Vietnamese Australian author The first story and the last titular story are autobiographical in some shape or form the others take place in a range of places the USA Iran Colombia and JapanFor me the stories didn t read well They were awkward or clunky in their transitions in time mostly or remained unresolved and for me therefore pointless or just didn t feel believable or legitimate Perhaps it was a stretch to write in the voice of people of different nationalities although in some cases the settings were fairly reasonably describedUltimately I had to skim the last three stories as the previous ones had made it too unlikely that I would sustain a careful read of this book2 stars

Nam Le ò 9 Summary

Free download The Boat 109 characters The Boat Hall debut And with graceful symmetry the final title story returns to Vietnam to a fishing trawler crowded with refugees where a young woman's bond with a mother and her small son forces both women to a shattering decision Brilliant daring and demonstrating a jaw dropping versatility of voice and point of view The Boat is an extraordinary work of fiction that takes us to the heart of what it means to be human and announces a writer of astonishing gif. Faulkner you know my friend said over the sueals he said we should write the old verities Love and honor and pity and pride and compassion and sacrificeThis uote is planted suare in the middle of Nam Le s opening story a metafictional conceit that allows the author to address the reader directly about how ethnicity and the immigrant experience can both confer a special status on an author while also becoming a crutch hobbling his imaginationThat s precisely what I admire so much about this collection Nam Le shows an impressive reach in the range of these stories The most successful the opening story Halfhead Bay and Meeting Elise are grounded by sympathetic characters and some sizzling prose The least successful don t fail because Nam Le wasn t writing about what he knows as some other reviews on this site have indicated They fall flat from an overexposure to one too many writing workshops Fearing melodrama Le strips any emotional arc from stories like Hiroshima or Tehran Calling Characters are mired in their own ennui Here the preachings of a literary culture that mistrusts redemption and epiphany and grace lead to stories that fail to moveSuch blemishes in an otherwise stirring collection are just fine with this reader Write what you know is one of the most wearisome cliches of the workshop I m glad that Le has chosen instead to reach for the Other while still daring to explore his own complex heritage The result makes for a rich stew of stories overall one that introduces a writer who shows great promise
