I have to admit I am still ten pages from finishing this book but I can t do it any With the exception of the first story this book bored me to tears I give it two starts instead of one because Le is a great writer At fear of sounding like a literary agent I will still say that I couldn t relate to any of these characters or their lives And this is because the writer didn t make it easy for me to relate to them Le is an excellent writer but a horrilbe story teller He never drew me in for a second and I m not one to easily get bored with books One of the writers uoted in the back of the book says The Boat will be read as long as people read books Good God I hope not which really is sad because this could ve been a really good book given Le s talent but it comes off forcedit s no surprise his friends tell him he needs to write about his family s life in Vietnam instead of old rich men in Manhattan To get a taste of Le s talent without having to read the whole thing read the New York Times book review and read the excerpt from the first story L'Aiguillle creuse is an extraordinary work of fiction that takes us to the heart of what Remote Viewers The Secret History of America's Psychic Spies it means to be human and announces a writer of astonishing gif.

Free read å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ó Nam Le Free read The Boat 107 A stunningly inventive deeply moving fiction debut stories that take us from the slums of Colombia to the streets of Tehran; from New York City to Iowa City; from a tiny fishing village in Australia to a foundering vessel in the South China Sea in a masterly display of literary virtuosity and feeling In the magnificent opening story Love and Honor and Pity and Pride and Compassion and Sacrifice a young writer is urged by his friends to mine his father. The production uality art direction sound design and every other thoughtful decision that went into crafting this interactive web comic is what pushes this story to 5 stars I think if I had read this story in a traditional format with just the text I would have rated it 3 stars because the short length and choppy writing don t provide much context for the historical setting or enough to make me emotionally connected to the characters However the craft truly enhanced the story to make it feel visceral and immersive and from my POV as an art director I m impressed enough with the work on a technical level to give it the full 5 stars I appreciate how the music and sound effects create a claustrophobic atmosphere and that there were so many little details like having the comic panels tilt around the screen when the boat is rocking around The emotional beats were executed well such as showing starvation through art that diminishes as you scroll down These nuances make it clear that there was a lot of time care and thought put into this I totally get why people might rate this 3 stars due to lack of historical context provided and not having much of an emotional connection but I think if you come from a design background you will appreciate the craft and if you are of Vietnamese heritage it ll be a sobering story to think about

Free read å eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ó Nam Le Free read The Boat 107 's experiences in Vietnam and what seems at first a satire of turning one's life into literary commerce becomes a transcendent exploration of homeland and the ties between father and son Cartagena provides a visceral glimpse of life in Colombia as it enters the mind of a fourteen year old hit man facing the ultimate test In Meeting Elise an aging New York painter mourns his body's decline as he prepares to meet his daughter on the eve of her Carnegie. dnf at page 205 with 2 short stories to goI read the first story in this collection for uni and I really liked it I wanted to read of Nam Le s short stories because why wouldn t you when you really liked one I can say for me the first short story the one I d already read is the best one It gripped me and piued my interest and I ve actually read it 3 or 4 times now Really like itBut none of the other stories were really grabbing my interest And the thing is there s no doubt Nam Le is a good writer His words are beautiful and he captures so many different people and puts down such an interesting take on them all But something wasn t grabbing me I was increasingly disengaged and this is the year I ve told myself I m not going to force myself to finish things I m not lovingThere will definitely be stories in here people will like The second story probably my favourite beside the first follows Columbian spies the third story Halfhead Bay follows an Australian surfer who s story is reminiscent of the ones Tim Winton writes If you like Winton you ll like that oneIt is unfortunate I wasn t finding something to grab me here I think it was the characters none of these short story characters really made me want to read on But I don t think this is a bad collection and I think Nam Le is a beautiful writer someone mentioned he s a poetry writer makes senseSo overall this is good but it wasn t for me
