    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBCharles Portis born in 1933 in the state of Arkansas one time Marine sergeant is an American author best known for his classic Western novel True Grit Such a darn good writer who created eccentric characters and comic plots Part of the American Vintage Contemporaries series published back in the 1980s this road novel by Charles Portis features 23 year old guitar pluckin’ ex marine Norwood Pratt who lives if you call this living way down in the grit of rural East Texas For me when it comes to road novels the spice is in what prompts hitting the road in the first place and all the encounters on the trip This one penned by Sir Charles is a real doozy Since so much of the color and texture of reading Charles Portis is in his homespun down to Texas earth language by way sampling Daddy’s literary cookin’ here are a few direct uotes from the beginning of the book along with my commentsOn The Visitors Norwood Invites To Stay At His House For A Couple Of Days“Sometime du

    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBI agonized over whether to give Norwood three or four stars—which tells me three things 1 I’m prone to exaggeration; 2 I really need to get a life; and 3 Goodreads should add half star ratings instead of worrying about retarded mascot contests and adding mostly pointless Facebookish features to the site which inevitably cause that damnable Alice pictureBertrand Russell uote to show up again Get your act together Goodreads This site is too big now to be run out of somebody’s garage with a week old burrito oozing into the ventilation slits on the server This is the big league and the big league demands fractional stars—which brings me back to point number two above Norwood is another triumph of characterization knee deep in Texarkana white trash color These are people who still pepper their speech with ‘nigger’ and wear outlandish cowboy accoutrements unironically Norwood Pratt the protagonist like other Portis protagonists is a

    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBWhat can I say about Norwood? I simply adored it Portis writes the most uncluttered prose imaginable and employs a deceptively simple style yet he has the eye of a poet The writing flows with such ease it can sometimes deceive the reader into thinking that the author doesn’t seem to be working very hard at all Simple stream of consciousness stuff you may think think again Portis’ use of language is masterly the characterisations are wonderful and the dialogues his cast enter into sublime It strikes me as verging on the criminal that Norwood was actually out of print for a while Hurumph I suspect that Charles Portis is underrated because his instinct as a writer is always to make us smile and it seems to be the way that the literati only truly respect and value a w

    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBPhenomenal I don't really know what to say I've been struggling to find a novel lately that completely captured my attention and pulled me fully into its world This one did the trick Norwood hooked me from the first page and never let go The characters are uirky without being stupidly over the top The dialogue is wonderfully Southern without being overwrought It's a perfect little novel you really could read in a single sitting It took me two sitting

    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBThis is the best one to read if you only read one other Portis novel besides ‘True Grit’ Everyone should read ‘True Grit’In a charming first novel Portis establishes his mastery of language in particular the Texarkana vernacular of well chosen detail that goes beyond apparent mundane triviality and really captures the American ambience as well as the human condition and of pitch perfect dialogueNorwood Pratt—another one of Portis’s strengths is names—is the title character a poor ignorant redneck who’s also a philosopher and philanthropist After getting a hardship discharge from the Marines when his daddy dies in the early 1960s the disappointed Norwood returns to his lackluster life in Ralph Texas as a Nipper gas station attendant and caretaker for his sister Vernell whose lack of get up and go is either the result of social and cognitive impairment or just plain old ab

    Norwood Kindle ´ Ü Kindle coinfetti.co norwood pdf, Norwood ePUBI read this book in three sittings the longest while getting some shading work done a large side piece The three things that stand out is the specificity of the language the dryness of the humor and the protagonist's heroic transformation in spite of making bad decisions at every turn Norwood conducts himself with propriety which sad to say makes him something of a throwback yet one would be hard pressed to call him good natured In life I run from these kinds of people guided by other people's perceptions of the right thing to do but it's this rightness that makes the story taut A looser moral register and the story falls apart I like characters that are unnecessarily formal to the point of fussiness These kinds of characters present countless opportunities for humor This is where Charles Portis is a master There were places where I chuckled out loud which means something I thin
