    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBThis is absolutely one of the best books I've recently read I found myself staying up much later than usual hurrying to my lunch breaks at work and even abandoning the internet the INTERNET to finish it Several people asked me what my book was about and I was at a loss for wordsto say that it's about relationships is too narrow To say that it incorporates philosophy either directly or implied is too reductive To say that the mai

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBIn general I don't like absurdist stories but I have really enjoyed this book and that's the first time this happens to me with Baricco It’s impossible to summarize the story of this book because there isn’t a real story with the exception perhaps of the storyline around the young genius Gould That boy has a disarming charm that made me think of the Owen Meany of John Irving Gould is surrounded by some imaginary figures and moves equally imaginary through the boxing world from which we get many wide drawn out scenes Next to him stands Shatzy Shell a young lady clearly signed by life experiences and with a big amount of sobriety she tries to pilot Gould through his difficult puberty she also takes us through an imaginary world that of the westerns with a few ingenious and above all beautiful stories that or less stand on their own And then there are a number of professors that bring some interesting philosophical musings among other things about the relation

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBOh oh oh it almost hurts me how much I love this book Baricco can make anything anything into gorgeousness City is a brilliant amalgam of stories including a comic book a boxing match lectures by myriad professors on things like curves in nature or Monet's Waterlillies or intellectual dishonesty and of course the main story which is about a boy genius his two imaginary friends a giant and a bald mute his absent military father and his institutionalized mother and his kooky fantastic governess who is writing a Western Yes yes a Western which in i

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBBarrico's 'City' seems in all its fragmented splendour a thoroughly modern book Yet at the same time it casts a long glance back to the origins of the novel as a Western cultural invention emulating the picaresque models of Cervantes and Rabelais or the 'sentimental' journeys of Laurence Sterne Barrico says he has conceived of the book as the plan of a European town with its irregular organically grown quarters streets buildings Reading the book then amounts to an exploratory ramble through this city with sudden twists

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBSo I finally finished this book I REALLY wanted to like it The idea of the book is great and I think the overarching story is the best part of the book by far For me the stories within the story weren't nearly as good They felt like a slow distraction and they were just kind of silly I guess they were insights into the characters who wrote them but the subject matter of those sto

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBKids need certaintiesCity is everything but a novel about a city about an urban space of any kind Baricco says it all in his cryptic description stories are neighborhoods characters are streets The rest is time as it passes a willingness to wander and a need to look In this novel Baricco uses his lyrical non linear style to describe the interweaving stories of Gould a young and misunderstood prodigy who is alone ex

    Paperback ¶ City MOBI ó city book, City PDFEPUBI don't know why either but I've attempted this one twice and can never seem to see it through to the end The concept is really nice the writing is good but I think the story and the intertwining dialogue confused me than anything Another case of bad timing or just not something for me I am still not sure
