review Cleaver AUTHOR Tim Parks Tim Parks Ù 8 Read Read & Download Ð eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ù Tim Parks Overweight and overwrought Howard Cleaver London's most successful journalist abruptly abandons home partner mistresses and above all television the instrument that brought him identity and power It is the autumn of 2004 and Cleaver has recently enjoyed the celebrity attending his memorable interview with the Pres. This is a challenging book because it s written in stream of consciousness style which might be off putting to some However I found that aspect amusing because Cleaver s over active suirrel brain reminds me of my own leaping from subject to subject as I typically do But the story is a good one wherein a decent man is played and manipulated throughout his life although he does a fair bit of the same achieving great heights of celebrity and accomplishment But at about age 60 sorry can t remember specifically grief stricken and at the end of his rope he takes his overweight and out of shape body and his tech addicted co dependent mind off on a crazy uest to find some kind of peace and independence some place in the world where he can either end it all or find himself He rents a very rustic cabin on the edge of the wilderness where he doesn t speak the language of the locals and thus is misunderstood mistrusted and insulated from humanity until the end of the book One of the interesting aspects of the story is the immersion in rural German culture Cleaver is also completely unprepared for the harshness of the winter in this mountain setting and almost dies as a result The story is resolved when he demonstrates his core decency stands up for himself feels he is of value and rejects the manipulating nastiness of those who should love him his family In a sense he finds a new family in a very different placeI could only give this book 4 stars because there were a couple of errors of logic in it which revealed a need for a bit editing and the book is confusing enough with its switches between tense and point of view but I frankly couldn t put it down and I still ten days later think of the protagonist as a real person I m glad I read it and I heartily recommend it but it s a challenging read Bottom line if you re middle aged and you re interested in seeing a character bust loose from convention and finally at midlife find his own way this is a fantastic story
