    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubThis is a book like no other that I have read before It is so uniue at so many levelsThis time around I am not going to give a summary of the book in my review as I fear that one I will give out spoilers and two I feel that I will not be able to do justice to the book Instead all I will say is that the last line of the book blurb it is a very modern novel about a very modern life sums up the book just perfectlyLet me start with the things that make this book stand out First of all there are no chapters in the book Yes that s right The whole big is just one BIG chapter Add the author s informal and friendly narration style this book feels like a conversation between buddies Then there s the matter of the title not that I expect many people to agree with me on this but to me it felt like a title of a classic book with heavy content that fire debates and discussion Well the second part about heavy content and firing dis

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubI m not a young bloke any being a Flemish author of nearly 62 having traditionally published than 30 books in Holland and Belgium but I can still be pleasantly surprised by debuts of young authors One of these is definitely Matthew Selwyn His debut novel The Anatomy of Melancholy kept me enthralled from start to finish The novel develops a disturbing very modern and ambiguous theme evoking the sinister lonely wolf eat wolf lifestyle of young people in the 21th century Gradually the dark humour and the cynical view on life evolve in something deeper a hidden melancholy a muffled cry of pain The mysterious girlfriend Lexi fades slowly into a pixel portrait the protagonist into a young man who s nearly cracking under the load of the digital world s demands and illusions And then there s the style the icing on the cake for me from laconic to Hollywood blockb

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubThis review has been crossposted from my blog at The Cosy Dragon Please head there for in depth reviews by me which appear on a timely scheduleSex it s the new currency Men reign supreme Women are simply boobs on sticks Warning this is a bad novel I m sure you think I didn t finish this novel But I persevered I hoped for something redeeming But there just wasn t anything there worth savingThe author has a fabulous grasp of both inventive high profile vocabulary with a mix of swear and slang words spread in It seems as if he s taken the dictionary and swallowed it That being said I could see this style working in a structured and focussed novelI just couldn t get away from the confusing bubble of words being constantly spat at me The characters were one dimensional which was fine because they were supposed to be women in their place The protagonist came through as a man stroking his own ego a

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubThis is an outstanding debut The direction is expertly delivered and our protagonist befriends the reader as a novice Though somewhat misguided to throw us from the reality of his situation the truth is revealed in a most genius mannerWe live in a world where technology is king and our younger generation has become victim to the ease or should I say addiction of having the world at their fingertips This tends to make one less inclined to involve themselves in actual social situations Much like Robert Burton our narrator rants about life and its inhabitants with superior prose He s vulgar sexist ob

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubThis was a disappointing read I really wanted to like this book especially as it was written by a young and obviously talented author The book while very well written is mostly a rant dealing with sex and violence with allusions or direct references to American Psycho Lolita A Clockwork Orange and Fight Club I found approximately the first half of the book redundant But then at some point nearing the second half I realized that the events depicted were being told by an unreliable narrator and that this young Brit was a self deluded loser unemployed hanging out with his mates having cyber sex with his girlfriend Lexi and living with Mum and Dad He also was being counseled and given meds by a mental health therapist I kept waiting for something anything to happen a revelation on his part a breakdown a breakthrough But there wa

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubDNF at 25%At first I thought this was going to be similar with one of my favorite books Catcher in the rye but a modern version of it but after the author keeps on talking only about sex and how great his c k is and how he gets sex here and everywhere I got uite bored with the subject I understand that young males only think about sex and this book might be on point that doesn t excuse the dullness of the subject at least for me

    MOBI ****eBook ↠  blackswanteacouk  **** pdf, **** EpubThis review and on So Bookalicious The Anatomy of Melancholy is a book that stands out from anything else that I have ever read before It is so uniue in many different ways The book was an eye opener for me where it concerns modern society It portrays modern youth that grew up in a digital age in a captivating way The book tells us exactly what goes on in daily life through the eyes of the narrator Sex drugs violence sadly it is all part of modern society and a lot of it is fueled by the unrealistic expectations that are created by the internet and TV The narrator s perspective on women and life is offensive To be honest at the beginning of this book I was a bit shocked by the outlook he had on life Be prepared to find a very unlikable characte
