    PDF/EPUB nessville.me Ï The Pesthouse Kindle Ì pesthouse pdf, The Pesthouse MOBIThe story of this book had potential but unfortunately that expectation did not materialize I read this book because I liked both ‘The Gift of Stones’ and ‘Harvest’ I was especially taken by ‘The Gift of Stones’ which was a highly imaginative novel set in the Stone Age In contrast ‘The Pesthouse’ is set in the far future a future where

    PDF/EPUB nessville.me Ï The Pesthouse Kindle Ì pesthouse pdf, The Pesthouse MOBIFascinating story but somehow the pace was slow Maybe it was because there is very little dialogue in the story It's all description and for me this meant that action was low and it was hard at points to keep my interest high Storyline reminded me of Cormac McCarthy Not a bad read at all I just have the feeling that the result of this story co

    PDF/EPUB nessville.me Ï The Pesthouse Kindle Ì pesthouse pdf, The Pesthouse MOBILeave it to Jim Crace an author who typically works with something known and then presents it entirely askew to write a novel about medieval America Medieval America? Well not exactly but almost The America in The Pesthouse is set in the future but the world is entirely medieval—a premodern world of small villages in which the highest technology is metalwork The landscape is littered in places with the ruins of modernity the rusting hulks of ships for instance but we don’t know when and why the previous society collapsed It must have happened generations before the time of the nov

    PDF/EPUB nessville.me Ï The Pesthouse Kindle Ì pesthouse pdf, The Pesthouse MOBII thought Jim Crace's Being Dead was a phenomenally weird read read chock o' block with passages of eerie beauty and shivery meditations on mortality I don't think I liked it per se but I could not get it out of my head I had never read anything uite like it at the time and still haven't So I was super excited when his next novel The Pesthouse came out dealing as it does with material I'm particularly fond of post apocalyptic wasteland America maybe it's because of growing up watching Rollerball and Logan's Run and Mad Max and Escape from New York and Night of the Comet and wait it for it wait for it all you seventies babies THE DAY
