    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubThis is really good especially for a first novel McCarthy exerts a whole lot of control over both his characters and his prose which isn't always a great thing but works well here One of the main characters spends a portion of the book forging a painting and at one point McCarthy lists all the things he needs in order to do it whiting powder rabbit skin glue methylated spirits cotton wool ketone resin crystals white spirit beeswax jelly wire wool sandpaper carbon paper purified water garli

According to the blurb this is about a group of people chasing a stolen icon painting from Sofia to Prague and onwards Not technically a lie as there is a stolen icon but it spends about 90% of the book in Prague and we see very little of the chasing of it 'onwards' And the book itself wastes about 40% of its pages describing various people taking various drugs and having sex Why the editor didn't take the first 100 pages or so to the shredder is a mystery I get it's supposed to be about people making journeys but how many journeys can McCarthy try to fit into a 270 page book?

    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubThe Lit major in me wants to give McCarthy's MEN IN SPACE five stars for its detailed symbolism its highly intricate analogies and its artistic complexity The lover of stories in me however wants to give it two stars for its almost aggressively dense plotting its alienating cartography and its oh so palpable disdain for anything even approaching entertainment Let's call it an even 35 and round upThis is the third McCarthy book I've read As a overt puzzle novel ASIN0307388212 C exhausted me and although its opaueness kept me at a distance its overall shape and weft was obviously the work of genius Even accessible ASIN0307278352 Remainder did get repetitive and tiresome but the writing flowed so uickly and with such sumptu

    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubA bit of disappointment after the brilliant Remainder by the same author Apparently he wrote this book long before The Remainder while living in Czech Republic in the early 1990s Detective story framed against the fall of communism it would have been a hit back then in the sagging 90's Today it feels out of time certainly not timeless

    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubI chose this one based on McCarthy's Remainder which I really enjoyed odd as it was Had I read Men in Space first I don't think I'd want to explore any books by the author Mind you McCarthy's literary talent isn't in uestion here he can write and well but he chooses to forgo convention in favor ofthe heavily s

    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubMcCarthy is unuestionably a genius The problem is he is the type of genius who speaks too fast for other people to listen He's so filled with knowledge and details and facts and apocrypha and anecdotes and jokes and stories within stories that it can make your head spin But that's not so much McCarthy's problem as it is my problemIf the disjointed narratives and voices in this book I especially loved the segments about the art world and in particular the meticulously researched section on the forging of a particular painting I loved the bohemian plot lines I was less charmed by the Delillo esue crime caper plot lines I couldn't keep track of the Bulgarians never really felt like I was with them didn't really care what happened to themThis books I crammed with such mind boggling detail that it's hard to believe it all physically fits into a book less than 300

    MOBI Tom McCarthy ↠ ↠ Men in Space ePUB Ì Men in PDF \ space book, Men in ebok, Men in Space EpubThe fact that I have little to say about this novel has induced an irrational compulsion to justify such a tepid response Perhaps expectations were too high going in I've been on a solid string of great new authors—thanks Goodreaders but I come away from this rather underwhelmed Not that anything was wrong with it per se; it simply remained flat nothing stood out during the read and nothing aside from the aforementioned compulsion lingered afterwards I understand that that could be interpreted as McCarthy’s attempt to literally—if laboriously—demonstrate the theme of failed tra
