    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, 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

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?

    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, Men in Space EpubI loved Tom McCarthy's Remainder and his Tintin and the Secret of Literature so I was looking forward to this and wasn't disappointed It's an often disjointed story set in Prague featuring British and American expats a rather self conscious group of Czech artists and literal Bohemians and local and Bulgarian gangsters A stolen icon forms the focus for this disparate group of people So far so thriller ish from my description here but Tom McCarthy raises his work above genre he shows that all characters don't have to interract for events to impact on them Some characters seem to peter out but they are still there in the background going obliviously about their lives or you have to assume seeing them fall to pieces or change for the better It helped maybe

    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, 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

    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, 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 question here he can write and well but he chooses to forgo convention in favor ofthe heavily stylized studiedly flat disjointed narratives of it the all but ignored basic plot which has something to do with a copying and redistribution of a stolen icon and the European art world in general set around the separation of Czechoslovakia the general lack of coherencycohesivenessthe deliberation behind it all reminds one of cubism or something like that taking something of substance and tossing it into unrecognition for style's sake It occasionally works for art for fiction which requires hours of readers' time not so muc

    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, Men in Space EpubTwo mentions First this is of a three and half rating than a three rating but closer to three than four hence the rating Second I am a fan of McCarthy There is an ease to McCarthy's writing like smooth jazz Unlike his other works it lacked both poetry and ingenuity This is a collection of stories tied together with some cohesion but little The author admits to such at the end In any event I enjoyed the book I wanted writing depth But I'll take what I can get

    Men in Space eBook å Men in PDF/EPUB ² space mobile, Men in free, 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 transcendence and that one could deem this melding of style and theme commendable yet too much of the book was merely episodic thrown together blasé vignettes stitched up as an after
