review Silver Lake Peter Gadol Ý 6 review read & download Ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ý Peter Gadol Robbie and Carlo have been involved professionally and personally for twenty years Lately though their architectural practice and their marriage are beginning to falterOne fall day Tom Field a peculiar young man drifts into their storefront office asking to use the phone The men get to talki. Too many pet peeves for me to enjoy this book at all From comma abuse to run on sentences to a false ending oh please never do this to misplaced words and phrases to rambling descriptions internal monologues and side trips that had little to nothing to do with the main story I couldn t stay lost in this tale The first rule of a good book in my opinion is suspending disbelief and that simply wouldn t happen with Silver LakeI must say I do like a good depressing story and this was sad but it was also frustrating because for most of the book I couldn t have told you the theme of the story I didn t grow to care about the characters Carlo with his silence and guilty conscious deserved worse and Robbie was well over the top with his painful optimism bordering on naivity so it was hard to feel for their pains I did like Tom as odd as he was I could believe in him He was real And I liked Jay another side character But these two couldn t carry the storyOverall while free I couldn t recommend this writing style or story

review Silver Lake

review Silver Lake Peter Gadol Ý 6 review read & download Ð PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ý Peter Gadol Ng; Tom is curious but enchanting and Robbie ends up playing tennis with him that afternoon ultimately inviting him home for dinnerThe ensuing evening involves a lot of wine and banter and then increasingly dark conversation and when the stranger has had too much to drink the two men insist. A meditation on what it means to fear loneliness even in the comfort of a solid relationship What happens when our most loved one becomes our most mysterious I was often reminded of Kundera s The Unbearable Lightness of Being while reading this uiet wintery book
