    Hardcover ☆ Bullfighting PDF/EPUB ¸ bullfighting book, Bullfighting PDF/EPUBVarious middle aged to older Irish men populate and narrate this collection of short stories The first few in chronological order were mostly whining husbands trapped in a plotless meandering The stories got much better with Funerals about a man taking his elderly parents to funerals once or twice a week By the next one Blood I was hooked Our protagonist there is in the cinema with his wife He'd fallen asleep during Coppola's Dracula One minute his wife was screaming grabbing his knee the next she was grabbing the same knee trying to wake him up The cinema lights were on and

    Hardcover ☆ Bullfighting PDF/EPUB ¸ bullfighting book, Bullfighting PDF/EPUBThese stories are no match for Kevin Barry's whose collection I just finished Too simple too easy too sweet The writing is common the voices in the stories are too much alike speaking in short sentences and constantly correcting themselves And that made it worse And made him annoyed And angry And stupid This thing now It was nothing The thing itself The Slave was especially boring

    Hardcover ☆ Bullfighting PDF/EPUB ¸ bullfighting book, Bullfighting PDF/EPUB“Bullfighting” is a collection of short stories mostly about Irish men nearing or in their 50s I enjoyed the “voice” I heard in these different stories The men were different but they sounded similar approaching their aging with reflection And quite often calling something “grand” that really wasn’t “Grand” is an overused exclamation here but the situations described are anything but I listened to this on audio I enjoy hearing an Irish accent and the narration by Lorcan Cranitch was very good I also enjoy the melancholy in so
