    A Slipping Down Life eBook ¶ A Slipping PDF/EPUB ² slipping epub, down kindle, life download, A Slipping free, A Slipping Down Life PDFIt was really interesting to read one of her early novels her third published in 1970 when she was 29 Crazy that she’s the same age as Bob Dylan And that she’s basically Peggy’s age in Mad Men Anyway this was a fun read Really fun quirky dialogue the best friend Violet in particular is crazy It’s even a bit zany in parts I thought an updated version of this story would be really interesting and probably a lot darker as it deals with fans and their obsessions Would the modern day version have a Justin Bieber esque character rather than a rockstar? Rock is truly dead sigh I had a lot of sympathy for the main character and her drab life and the weird fucked up way s

    A Slipping Down Life eBook ¶ A Slipping PDF/EPUB ² slipping epub, down kindle, life download, A Slipping free, A Slipping Down Life PDFIf you are wanting to read any Anne Tyler novels do NOT start with this one I would encourage you to check out her later works and after you've read a few then you should read this and her earlier two works In an interview Tyler mentioned that she does not really acknowledge these first three books and I can see why While they are not that great they do play a role in helping the reader to see the evolution of a novelist In this novel as well as If Morning Every Comes and The Tin Can Tree we see Tyler exploring the narratives structures that will become paramount to her later works but she is still learning her way through the form As to this novel specifically it is rather boring I know that sounds weird to say about a novel centering around a girl who becomes obsessed with a local band and its lead singer to the

    A Slipping Down Life eBook ¶ A Slipping PDF/EPUB ² slipping epub, down kindle, life download, A Slipping free, A Slipping Down Life PDFI am a huge fan of Anne Tyler's She writes about quirky characters with such art fleshing out their traits and circumstances I wouldn't hesitate recommending her works but this one did not resonate with me I think it's because both the main characters the girl who's an outsider at school and the boy a musician who has a habit of blurting out sentences that make little or no sense are apathetic They both have caring parents and yet there seems to be no connection with them no love or anger shown Maybe in their passivity at home Yes the girl acts out in a major way which I won't reveal and that is startling But on the whole since the main characters didn't

    A Slipping Down Life eBook ¶ A Slipping PDF/EPUB ² slipping epub, down kindle, life download, A Slipping free, A Slipping Down Life PDFThis was a curious compelling little read Teenager Evie becomes obsessed with a local singer Drum Casey their lives become entwined after she carves his name on her forehead or does she? I'm not quite clear on that Evie's only goal seems to be furthering Drum's career they seem to have a strange relationship which results in their marriage despite the apparent lack of real affection between them The story concludes with the death of Evie's father the unsurprising to me anyhow break up of their marriage with Evie returning to her father's home alone pregnant However this does seem to bring things full circle with Evie potentially bringing up a child alone as her father did A sad but at times sweet yet unsettling story while I liked it I can't help feeling I've missed the point of it

    A Slipping Down Life eBook ¶ A Slipping PDF/EPUB ² slipping epub, down kindle, life download, A Slipping free, A Slipping Down Life PDF35 starsA very eccentric tale about a 17 year old plump average looking girl who is apparently obsessed with a struggling guitarist nicknamed Drum and carves his name on her forehead Therein starts a slow and steady drumroll of events which culminate abruptly This is not a love story neither is it a story progression I couldn't fully fathom the emotions of the two main characters Clotilia the maid and Mr Dekker the father thouh secondary characters were powerfully portrayed This was a slow paced but highly entertaining short novelWould recommend this to anyone who likes out of the way themes
