    Paperback µ Telegraph Avenue PDF µ telegraph pdf, avenue kindle, Telegraph Avenue eBookCount me among those that found reading this book a chore Chabon is obviously brilliant and talented but reading his work is a bit like being trapped in the corner at a party by a manic genius who feeds you dozens of brilliant different ideas at once but at such a speed and with so many different tangents along the way that's it difficult to take it all in Here to slow things down you often have to read sentences a couple of times just to keep track of what the noun and verb were in between all the independent clauses and tangential metaphors Thank God for e books with their at your fingertips dictionaries because you also have to look up at least a word or two per pageClearly plenty of readers enjoy having their minds expanded by such a prodigious talent but I found much of the information show offy It's amazing how many varied metaphors Chabon can spin but occas

    Paperback µ Telegraph Avenue PDF µ telegraph pdf, avenue kindle, Telegraph Avenue eBookThis book drove me a little nuts It's plot is overstuffed making the whole thing much too long That wouldn't be such a bad thing if the language didn't irritate me so much Chabon tries to be both hip and smart while dealing with characters who seem to be lacking in both I felt too often that I was reading an El Leonard book written towards the Ivy League set El Leonard at least knows how to plot The plot lacks punch and swiftness and I felt myself caring less and less as the book went along It just ended up not being my bag

    Paperback µ Telegraph Avenue PDF µ telegraph pdf, avenue kindle, Telegraph Avenue eBookI wanted to like it The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is one of my favorite books of all time and I went into this one with excitement and enthusiasm Unfortunately that only lasted about fifty pages I shouldered through because I wanted to give Chabon the benefit of the doubt In the end I think the novel could have been saved with some judicious editing It should have been about a third shorter Chabon lets his thoughts run away from him and while his many asides are beautifully written they distract f

    Paperback µ Telegraph Avenue PDF µ telegraph pdf, avenue kindle, Telegraph Avenue eBookWhat a delight to be treated to this life affirming story after sustaining a series of books by Chabon that did not live up to the pleasures of “The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay” He clearly loves all his characters in this tale and I was quite satisfied how their challenges in his narrative led them to evolve toward their visions in some cases or successfully stumble past their misfortunes in othersThe story concerns the struggles of a black couple Archy Stallings and Gwen Shanks in keeping their businesses their marriage and their principles alive in their multicultural community in Oakland in 2004 Archy runs Brokeland Records wi

    Paperback µ Telegraph Avenue PDF µ telegraph pdf, avenue kindle, Telegraph Avenue eBookSentence to sentence just great There's some wonderful writing about babies and about commerce and old stores and those parts of Telegraph where Berkeley and Oakland kind of wander into each other lived not far from there for about 2 years in early 90s at at about 61st just off Claremont Not to mention birthing and midwifery and lotsa nerd boy stuff Which is the problem As early as Werewolves in Their Youth Chabon started working the whole SFfanboyformer nerd angle into his fiction and there are a bunch of essays in his last collection about that as well And of course Kavalier and Clay is maybe the ultimate meta fanboy novel I mean that in a good way But here that whole worldview seems to have congealed into a key to all mysteries such that each of the characters OK except for the wife of one of the guys who owns the used vinyl store but then we don't really ge
