    PDF Ali Smith á The Accidental MOBI ☆ á accidental mobile, The Accidental KindleI really enjoyed Ali Smith’s How to be Both; this one for me was hit and miss A dysfunctional or normal family – pretty much the same thing nowadays – rents a holiday home in Norfolk One day a mysterious stranger a woman called Amber arrives and ends up moving in with them All four members of the family metaphorically are very much waiting for an amber light to turn to green and Amber’s redemptive role is to reveal how this light might be changed The first problem for me was Amber herself She’s something of a cliché as an inspirational free spirit More of a new age traveller than a sorceress or annunciation angel Her remedies for the supposedly stifling middle class malaise gripping the family this malaise isn't altogether convincing are somewhat hackneyed She introduces the son Magnus to sex and teaches Astrid to be hostile to public opinion and property In fact there’s a kind of hollow hi

    PDF Ali Smith á The Accidental MOBI ☆ á accidental mobile, The Accidental KindleThis was a fun and surprising read with lots of scintillating wonders in its delivery and content It falls into the box of “experimental writing” but it flows along so fast and spritely compared to many a turgid self important postmodern of doorstop dimensions Ali’s opening epigraph from John Berger was a perfect set up “Between the experience of living a normal life at this moment on the planet and the public narratives being offered to give a sense to tat life the empty space the gap is enormous”The story is of a dysfunctional London family in summer residence in a rural town in Norfolk with sections alternately told from the minds of an adult couple Michael and Eve and their kids twelve year old Astrid and seventeen year old Magnus Astrid is largely ignored by her parents and lives in a vibrant fantasy life and projects involving d

    PDF Ali Smith á The Accidental MOBI ☆ á accidental mobile, The Accidental KindleI cannot believe this book is on the 1001 books list Do the people who write the list not like people who read books any? Why would they punish us so? 1001 list writers once again I uestion you Why?I didn't enjoy reading it and to say I found the story a pointless and unrewarding read is probably an understatement The book seemed to be nothing than a series of poorly strung together literary devices or maybe it was a vehicle for the trundling out of a series of literary devices to show how many literary devices there areAnyway whatever they made the story seem too contrived and dull None of the characters were engaging nor did they warrant any sympathy empathy or any other kind of pathy A prime example being Dr Michael Smart all round nauseating self obsessed academic with a penchant for thinking and talking about himself in the third person and for bed

    PDF Ali Smith á The Accidental MOBI ☆ á accidental mobile, The Accidental KindleThis was phenomenal Skillfully structured beautifully written with a story that kept me flipping pages past my bedtime The story is told from four different POVs with a stream of consciousness bent and occasional experimental flare as in the segment narrated in poetry by the serially philandering husbandstep fatherEnglish professor Michael Twelve year old Astrid’s imaginative flights of fancy pre teen jargon and maybe hints of ADD were an amusing ride don’t be alarmed it’s not all like this Wifemother and blocked writer Eve grapples with the memory and problems of her own family of origin while she struggles with professional challenges in a project that consists of the “Genuine article” series “autobiotruefictinterviews” although the articles are actually uite speculative Magnus’s teenage angst has legitimate foundations; he’s been involved in a prank gone very wrong and is suffering the torments of hellish guilt until an intervention by th
