    PDF/EPUB The Swimming Pool Library Kindle ä The Swimming ã shop peters.de ã swimming book, pool kindle, library mobile, The Swimming free, The Swimming Pool Library PDFThe plot was only intermittently absorbing but the narrator's tones are utterly addictive I can't get enough of Hollingburst's style It can delicately register so many things shades of emotion nuances of intellection as well as symphonies of physical movement as in the suburban boxing tournament but never sounds fussy or over elaborate; very solid and uick a model for anyone I wasn't sure if the rather stark contrast between the rich emotion of Lord Nantwich's old diaries and the senile muddled form he took during the present day of the narration was intentional or not Nantwich never caught on with me he seemed so blurry and not there; but as I said maybe that was the point Hollinghurst wishing to remind us that complex submerged past lives lie beneath the vague blandness of manner exhibited by the elderly The samples of Nantwich's diaries can b

    PDF/EPUB The Swimming Pool Library Kindle ä The Swimming ã shop peters.de ã swimming book, pool kindle, library mobile, The Swimming free, The Swimming Pool Library PDFThis book is tricksily misleading on a number of fronts It has been described as deeply thrilling and darkly erotic I think I might have missed something then at first appearance it's a breezy but self obsessed commentary by flirtatious man about town William Beckwith; young moneyed unscrupulous charming and gay The narrative is archly upper class with freuent references to private mens clubs such as the Corinthian and the Athenaeum The characters are foppish and callow self serving and frivolous This is the sort of thing you can get away with when you're hideously moneyed apparently The prose is written in such a way that it took me about 50 pages until the mention of Bucks Fizz the pop group not the drink to work out that this book is set in the 1980's The plumy language and old school tie networking really leads you to believe that the setting is the 1920's or 30's and the lives loves and language would not be out of place in an Evelyn Waugh novel Or maybe that

    PDF/EPUB The Swimming Pool Library Kindle ä The Swimming ã shop peters.de ã swimming book, pool kindle, library mobile, The Swimming free, The Swimming Pool Library PDFThis book is extremely good written Very erotic and very gay ish It could have had 50 pages less or 100 pages it wouldn't have had any influence on the storylineWhat a storyline?It doesn't have a typical beginning culminating and endingHere the journey itself is a destination It is for sure a book I'd like to re read some day and invest time in it

    PDF/EPUB The Swimming Pool Library Kindle ä The Swimming ã shop peters.de ã swimming book, pool kindle, library mobile, The Swimming free, The Swimming Pool Library PDFGiven the number of sex scenes that Alan Hollinghurst crams into his books approximately one every other page you'd think it would be enjoyable for him as well as the reader to inject a bit of variation In fact they all follow broadly the same template lingering description of a younger man's abschestarse; comparative analysis of cock size and appearance; followed by a rough penetration in which the narcissistic central character is invariably in the active role

    PDF/EPUB The Swimming Pool Library Kindle ä The Swimming ã shop peters.de ã swimming book, pool kindle, library mobile, The Swimming free, The Swimming Pool Library PDFI found Hollinghurst's novel to be very enthralling and wonderfully erotic It's such a fantastic exploration of what it was like to be a part of the gay community in the early 1980s before AIDS altered the community and its image foreverFrom my perspective very recently influenced by some serious thought about the West Indian community in London The Swimming Pool Library struck me as a fascinating perspective how did the majority view the other especially an other that was as highly sexualized as West Indians in London? It seems that both men and women
