    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII received my copy from Bookhugger's Real Readers programme and the first thing to note is that the cover is absolutely stunning The second thing is that the opening paragraph is one of the most enticing I have ever read Unfortunately after such a promising first impression it falls a little flatIt's definitely an adventure novel but this creates some odd strengths and weaknesses I would disagree with the negative reviews which found it difficult to read It's written in uite a compelling fashion and I never felt the urge to stop reading and pick something else up instead It's very easy to get through and uite a uick read for its size Where the problem arises however is that it's very muc

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBIThis was a really interesting read It starts out almost like a Dickens novel except colorful Young impoverished boy in Victorian London falls in with wild characters goes on adventures etc But it took a dreadfully dark turn that shocked the hell out of me and left me disturbed for days So be prepared for that—this is much than the average coming of age adventure story In retrospect there we

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII found this book at the library sale shelves The cover attracted my attention first and after reading the first paragraph I was hooked I was born twice First in a wooden room that jutted out over the black water of the Thames and then again eight years later in the Highway when the tiger took me in his mouth and everything truly beganHow could I resist finding out what happened next?A word of advice though I did not read the blurb on the book jacket when I bought the book I did not read the GR blurb either which I have just discovered uotes the cover blurb exactly The trouble is that blurb is pretty much a condensed version of the book Because I dove in without knowing any of the details given in the blurb I wa

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBII was torn between two and three stars for this Perhaps it is like 25 This book was a chore for me to read I felt disappointed and that it ought to have been so much better Maybe the problem was one of marketing it is called Jamrach's Menagerie and yet the vast bulk of it is about a voya

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBIThe intensity the deep feeling the strong relationships the joys the horrors the experiences the adventures are all described so wonderfully by the author through the senses of Jaffy Brown in the first person that I shall not even attempt to tell you about them You need to read the book for yourself Short listed for the Man Booker Prize in 2011 I cannot imagine how good the eventual winner must've been in the eyes of the judges to have beaten Jamarach's MenagerieTowards the end I was beginning to think of alternative titles for the book Jaffy's Oceans or The Long Voyage of Jaffy Brown came to mind but I suppose that the title is appropriate as it all started when eight year old Jaf Brown stroked the nose of a Bengal tiger which had broken loose from Jemrach's Menagerie and he was carried off by the magnificent beast This incident is based on fact The rest of the story is mostly based on fiction I can't tell you the other fact without ruining the reading for you But I'll tell you

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBIThis book was shortlisted for Man Booker Prize this year 2011 It lost to Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending I am still to read a Barnes but I am sure I will like his works since my brother like his “Flaubert’s Parrot” However I wanted to have some lighter reads every December so I picked up this book first I made the right decision this book is light to read yet heavy in its artistryThink of Robert Louis Stevenson’s sea adventure masterpiece Treasure Island because a big part of this book is about adolescent boys with grownup men sailing afloat the Atlantic Throw in some survival of the fittest and awakening like Yann Martel’s Life of Pi Then there’s the uest of finding hunting and bringing home a legend a mythical dragon Opps I have not read a novel about dragon yet How I wish I’d read one so I can make this review convincing ha ha But anyway think of a uest like King Arthur’s desire for the Holy Grail There I go I read something about that w

    eBook arnepistol.co ✓ Jamrach's Menagerie PDF ☆ jamrach's ebok, menagerie book, Jamrach's Menagerie MOBIThis is one of those books where I really would like to know what the judges for the Man Booker Prize were thinking when they picked it over 100 other contenders to be longlisted for the prize for 2011 That's why I read it Parts of it have promise The story starts with this young boy Jaffy who lives at the very edge of the Thames river described uncomfortably well in a way only rivaled by Stephen King Good but not good It puts you there in a way you would never want to be Jaffy has a run in with a tiger and ends up working for Jamrach's Menagerie thus the title of the book To me these were the interesting bits unfortunately they only took the first uarter of the book or so Then the author sends Jaffy off on a whale ship partly
