    MOBI Edward P. Jones ´ The Known World Kindle Ü The Known Epub / ´ known pdf, world ebok, The Known book, The Known World EpubI know this is a critically acclaimed book a Pulitzer winner and a book tackling a difficult and complex stain on America history slavery and black slave owners There are moments when the book does say some interesting things or reveal some unsavory and uncomfortable truths but it was so hard to engage with as a reader I mean I hung in with DFW through the first 600 pages of Infinite Jest where nothing happens but because I was fascinated by Hal Orin Marathe Steeply and Mario and Madame Psychosis who all fascinated me There were literally dozens of other characters but these all pulled me in In The Known World there are also dozens of characters but none that I grew any attachment too It was as if the author Jones was using a hand held camera and no stabilizer so that the images were jumpy and out of focus It reminded me sometimes of how the world seems to my myopic eyes between taking off my glasses in the morning and putting in my contact lenses The na

    MOBI Edward P. Jones ´ The Known World Kindle Ü The Known Epub / ´ known pdf, world ebok, The Known book, The Known World EpubDear The Known WorldI'll be blunt I'm breaking things off This just isn't working It's not you; it's me Well maybe it's you too a bitI really thought when we got together that we would have a brief but mutually satisfying relationship I'd read you you'd provide enlightenment or emotional catharsis or entertainment maybe even all three All the signs were there the laudatory uotes on your jacket a shocking and unexpected premise high marks on goodreads But something was just off by the end of the first chapter Maybe it was the masturbation scene right at the start Or the characters that I just couldn't get into I could hardly

    MOBI Edward P. Jones ´ The Known World Kindle Ü The Known Epub / ´ known pdf, world ebok, The Known book, The Known World EpubBasically a book about slavery in the South I enjoy those kind of thing especially The Secret Lives of Bees but with this one it felt like the book had no point While I was reading I kept on going what did I just read? Am I really readingunderstanding this book? and kept on referring to the back cover of the book No The story was simply what I read OK Then ugh I HATE leaving a book unread so I kept on forcing myself to read thru the whole book Finally the misery I was putting myself through ended and UGH The storyline The author kept on jumping around the timeline too much and honestly I would describe this book as a glimpse of the lives of slaves in the south but with a blah storyline However this book has won a pultizer prize EH? Anyone out there who has read this book? Your opinions
