    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolA fascinating departure for Lerner but also a homecoming as this novel's increasingly fractured language embraces poetics in a way LEAVING THE ATOCHA STATION and 1004 skirted There is a sedate pace here that reminds me of Saul Bellow or John Cheever with the massive ambition of re capturing America of the 90's as a

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolThis book is like a skeleton clock There are a lot of different elements some of them only added or painted for show coming together to form one mechanical piece – and while the first look suggests a complicated interplay of intricate parts it’s ultimately just wheels and springs doing their thing and the oscillation of the balance wheel remains minimal Ben Lerner bombards his readers with topics and jumping timelines but ultimately the density of the writing does not cover up the fact that this story is lacking depth and elegance The main storyline focuses on Adam who is a debate champion at Topeka High School in the 90’s – just like the author once was Adam’s parents work as psychologists his mother is a renowned feminist and author – again

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolSometimes a book just doesn’t work for me and this is one of them There was such an introspective feel right from the beginning and I usually enjoy that in a novel but at 40% I’m giving up I put it down several times and each time I wasn’t all that interested in finding out about these dysfunctional and complex characters Just not for me I’m not rating it since I didn’t finish and I recommend you read the reviews of those who did Too many books and so little time as they say so I’m moving onI received an advanced copy of this book from Farrar Straus Giroux through Edelweiss

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolBen Lerner’s new book “The Topeka School” is an extraordinarily brilliant novel that’s also accessible to anyone yearning for illumination in our disputatious era If you’ve been nervously hopping along the shore of Lerner’s work now’s the time to dive in As in his previous novels this story is semi autobiographical and the structure is complex but “The Tope

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolThis is one of those books where the story is fabulous but the execution and writing style aren't my cup of tea I appreciate what the author is doing here but the text is packed solid to the point that there is very little dialogue and this paired with continuous thoughts that felt like mental run on sentences was a struggle Again I may not be high brow enough or as much of a literary fiction connoisseur as the reader who this novel is intended for so I would definitely recommend with caution Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy via NetGalley

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolWhilst there are some good moments in this they are vastly outweighed by the sheer confusing tangle of webs and people and ideas all strung together with high brow language that makes the book a real drudge to try to plough through The constant flipping of characters and between the past and the present is confusing particularly when the language makes it so difficult to easily grasp what is going on There were multiple moments where I found myself going back pages to try to figure out who what or where we were which simply shouldn't happen if a book is well writtenIn honesty this comes across as the author trying so hard to be clever to be literary that he ends up losing sight of the things that actually make a good novel like a strong narrative voice characters you can empathise with and writing you are drawn in by The narrative voice here is all over the place as Lerner tries to do so many things with so many characters that it is just a mess o

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolWhat did I just read I have no freaking idea Stream of consciousness and changing points of view are great but this book made me feel like the ball in a Pong game Meaninglessly bouncing back and forth Told from the different perspectives of three family members who are not only one dimensional but incredibly unlikeable There is no connection between the three so I frank

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolSometimes Literary Fiction just works It’s brilliantly written full of richly drawn characters social commentary and observations And sometimes it doesn’t work at all The writing may be great but the meaning is too obliue and inaccessible the character’s actions and motivations too hard to understand and the story seems to go nowhereAnd what makes Literary Fiction such a difficult genre in which to select books to read is that not many people read it at all and everyone’s line between what works and what doesn’t is dramatically different I really liked

    FREE PDF ☆ BOOK The Topeka School Ò BUSINESSCURRENCY The Topeka SchoolI had high hopes for Ben Lerner's The Topeka School but although I did appreciate the writing I felt it was not as good as some other recent fiction that is discussed in relation to the 2020 Pulitzer such as Disappearing Earth The story revolves around a family of psychotherapists in Topeka Kansas and is supposed to be a sort of deconstructionist view of the New Right I was not really able to connect with the protagonists Dr
