Andrew Sean Greer Ø 4 Summary

The Confessions of Max Tivoli review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Fiecare dintre noi este iubirea vietii cuiva Astfel incep confesiunile lui Max Tivoli personaj aflat la granita omenescului cu monstruosul si poate de aceea cu atat mai uman victima a unei cumplite dispute cu timpul Exista insa vreo fiinta omeneasca ce poate iubi monstrul Ca un duh din vechile legend. The Curious Case of Benjamin Button revamped reworked in a very satisfying if melancholy wayThis earlier book by Greer whose Less becomes memorable as time passes likens the aging in reverse weeper of an affliction with homosexuality For there are monstrosities in the human pool slightly MORE human solely because of their scourge and plight The confessionary is self serving for good reason an intimate deconstruction of the theme which Oscar Wilde explored at the time that this novel takes place at the switch over of the centuriesThis is better than the Brad Pitt film in color almost a companion piece Both Button and Tivoli could be side by side not only in the theme of literature but as clinical studies Like why do we cringe at getting closer to death Artists ponder This is a work about that fear but also about love That the maternal kind and the romantic are interchangeable though this may probably be my only aversion to this very emotional novel

The Confessions of Max Tivoli review ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook E daneze Max se naste cu infatisarea unui batran de 70 de ani; creste apoi impotriva timpului imbatranind spiritual pe masura ce an de an trupul ii intinereste Ca o piesa in trei acte romanul urmareste cele trei mari intalniri ale lui Max cu femeia pe care o iubeste de la batranul indragostit de o fe. Max Tivoli was born looking like a 70 year old man with white hair wrinkled skin and liver spots Though his mind ages normally his body grows younger with each passing yearAs I read or listened to this book I couldn t help but wonder how it compares to F Scott Fitzgerald s The Curious Case of Benjamin Button which is essentially from what I understand the same story I ve yet to read Benjamin Button but I would assume that Andrew Sean Greer borrowed heavily from Fitzgerald even if only in concept Actually I ve since learned that this is not the case oddly enough Greer got the idea from a Bob Dylan songAnyway The Confessions of Max Tivoli begins when Max is nearing 60 years old but looks to be a boy of 10 or 12 Knowing he is in the last years of his life he decides to write his life story He does this in part to confess his secrets to the woman he loves and in part so that his son who is unaware that Max is his father since he appears to be a boy of the same age will someday discover the truth What follows is a tale of love sort of loss and self reflectionUnfortunately I didn t find Max to be a particularly likable man Often selfish and full of melancholy over his predicament he seems to lack any interest in life outside of one single obsession his love for a girl named AliceWhen Max first meets Alice she is 14 years old and thinks Max is a man in his 60s though he is actually only 17 at the time We are I think supposed to feel sorry for Max for what he cannot have but Max does such a good job at this himself that I found it hard to be as sympathetic as I might otherwise have beenI also didn t feel that Max s love for Alice was genuine It seemed like a destructive life long infatuation a desire for someone simply because that person is out of one s reach At one point Max himself says to the reader You are thinking this is not love This sounds like a wretchedly broken heart Indeed that is precisely what I was thinkingFor these reasons I had a hard time getting fully absorbed into the story I grew so tired of Max s incessant woefulness that I felt myself distancing from him and as the story went on Despite all this though there were some aspects I enjoyed The book is well written with rich prose and a lovely descriptive styleWith my own health struggles I could definitely relate to the idea of being trapped in a body that doesn t function properly and all the frustrations that come with that I think most of us even when healthy can relate to the sense that our body rarely matches the age we feel in our mind and soul I remember when my late grandmother turned 80 she told my mom she didn t feel like she was 80 Time has a way of slipping by uickly than we want or expect it to whether it is moving forward or in Max s case backwardsOverall this was an interesting and well presented concept but the characters simply didn t resonate with me as much as I d hoped It did make me all the curious sorry to read Benjamin Button though
