    I have no doubt that there are worse works of fiction in existence, but this is the worst one I ve actually read It is written for people who like the sound of language in their head and want to feel long streams of words washing over them Judging by the popularity and success of this author, and others like Proulx, there are a lot of those peop

    I wasn t planning to read this book again, when my friend Lynn picked it for our October real life book club selection I d read it in 1985, and while I didn t remember a lot of details, I do remember absolutely loving it And then it happenedAt the September meeting, the attacks startedWell, said one woman, I almost never give up on a book, but I couldn t

    The last thing Mrs Gamely said to her daughter was, Remember, what we are trying to do in this life is to shatter time and bring back the dead Winter s Tale is a BIG book I refer not only to its 748 page length, but to its ambition It is a big book about big ideas, and it takes some big characters to realize the author s ambition There are a few here Colin Farrel

    Ulysses is the most important book in my life Winter s Tale is my favorite If Ulysses is like that boyfriend girlfriend with whom you re Totaly Fucking In Love, and with whom you constantly fight, and break up, and get back together, and cheat on or get cheated on by, and break up with again, and get back together with again, and sit in your car outside their house listen

    If it s possible for a novel to establish its author as a good writer but a poor novelist, Winter s Tale might be the book to do it Helprin has great talent for description, good talent for language, remedial talent for storytelling and almost nothing that resembles perspective.There s a passage somewhere between pages 600 and 700 where Helprin goes hog wild in his description of

    So what if Helprin s political views make me want to spew in the nearest barf receptacle He created Peter Lake, and I don t care about much else This is an intense example of magical realism At times, the reader must willingly suspend his or her disbelief until the very notion of disbelief is shot straight to hell Still, it is about the journey Helprin takes us on not the destination we anticipate

    Wow This is the worst magical realism book I ve ever read, and I ve read Salman Rushdie s Fury Bottom line is that I don t mind crap, but I do mind deadly dull crap Everything happens without much point, even within the universe of the book Why would a super idealistic newspaper run a column entitled The Mayor Looks Like an Egg Period. Why is it that the one horrid person in the universe is a complete buffo

    Wow This book is magic And I do not mean it is magical to read, but that literally it contains magic.Let me start by stressing that this novel is for READERS Not people who say they like to read but only do so occasionally or lightly Or even those who do delve into many wonderful works but only when the stars are aligned This is a rewarding and wondrous book for those who will actually take time for it and really ge
