    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleIt seems appropriate to use the dictation teach you feature on my iPad to write this with you review I've never tried dictating before always preferring to use a keyboard But why not I thought since this book is about a woman who intermittently hears someone dictating a novel based on thoughts she herself has just had The disappointed disembodied voice she hears is accompanied by the clicked attack cliuety clack of typewriter keys What I hear as I dictate these sentences is the pink ping of the dictation key as it cuts out when I

    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleTrue to the saying nomen est omen this is a sparky novel unfortunately my senses have been blunted by reading The Secret I suspect I need a diet of sensible non fiction and fresh air to restore my reading sensibilities before I can appreciate Muriel Spark again However I reassure you gentle reader that this is a comic novel While I didn't fall off any chairs holding my aching ribs my smile to page ratio seemed to be high view spoileralthough as with The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie this is humour that can bite in this case close to the close of the novel the family patriarch He had misgivings then about his retreats He told his spiritual director 'I might have do

    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleSpark’s debut is a sizzling multi character romp with an unexpected metafictive subplot and an unexpected Grandma’s smuggled diamonds into loaves of bread subplot amongst other sub and foreplots Read the Ali Smith preface in this edition then find an edition with a less revolting cover to read the actual novel The pace sags but the novel sings Metafictioneers take note of this one Spark predates Barth et al by a decade

    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleAnother Muriel Spark novel I had read already some five books by her And she is one of my favourite writers I knew what I expected when I began the novel and I was not disappointed Only that I was surprised to find out in the curse of reading The Comforters was Spark's debut When I learned that fact few things easily fell into places For instance the themes of conversion She became a Catholic in 1954 and writing a novel a character in the novel who is also meditating to write a novel is obsessed with a thought that she is part of a plot written by a disembodied spiritAbout the theme of ConversionI expect the theme of religion specifically Catholicism in Spark's novels She was an unorthodox kind of a Catholic This novel being a debut we get a glimpse into Spark's own reasoning into her own conviction that led her to Catholicism She

    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleMeta literary novels are boring though not as boring as meta filmic movies and if they don't bore you by now 2012 well you need to think about something else for a while Which makes this novel particularly notable since it is meta literary and also not boring It's not hard to work out why though Spark isn't out to subvert our expectations or undermine the authority of the Author or anything like that Instead she draws a wonderful analogy between faith in God and faith in art and therefore human beings There is no physical evidence that art is any g

    Paperback¸ The Comforters PDF ñ comforters epub, The Comforters KindleWritten in 1957 The Comforters is a curious and fun mix of English manners mystery and a post modern writer’s examination of writing that reminded me of Sophie's World without the philosophyI read this on the strength of a review by Zoeytron who really should be paid to write cover copy
