    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversInstead of posting a typical review I'm going to post the letter that I wrote to Marc after I finished reading The Grievers I hope he won't mind that I'm doing this Marc I finished The Grievers – all in one sitting five straight hours with a short pause for dinner First I want to thank you for letting me read the book in advance of its release Second I would like to share some thoughts that I hope you don’t mind reading I’m going to go out on a limb and assume that this story – some or all – happened to you in real life I know it’s not very academic to conflate the author and the narrator but I’m going to defy convention and

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversSchuster's novel provides readers with a mirror of those aspects of themselves with which they may have trouble dealing Charley Schwartz the protagonist is stuck in a limbo of sorts between childhood and adulthood He has assumed a variety of adult responsibilities but he continues to approach them with a very childlike or at least adolesent like naivete He refuses to take things seriously when he should and he takes too seriously the very things he shouldn't While in theory this may seem an annoying habit it actually makes Charley endearing to readers We find in him someone with whom we can empathize someone on whose side we want to be There is a character for everyone in this book All readers will be able to see parts of themselves in one character or another which makes this book one with which we can commiserate rather than one

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversLike the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral Marc Schuster’s The Grievers blends the post juvenile humor of adults refusing to grow up with aching pathos and biting touches of genius By the final memorial service for Billy Chin the reader knows everything is bound to go wrong and that somehow it will all turn out right We’re reading We trust the writer and driver of this tale And dysfunctional Charley’s finally taking the wheelA satisfying story on many different levels The Grievers starts with a phone call from Billy

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversEvery time I start a book there is always a sense of anticipation This was particularly so for this book I knew about this book for over a year before it was released And sometimes when you look forward to something for so long there is a greater chance for being let down; for the book not living up to the hype that you built for itI am happy to say that there was no let down in The Grievers Marc Schuster tells a great story about the coming of age of Charley Schwartz a 28 year old man who spends his time not working on his dissertation not taking his menial job seriously not doing a very good job of helping his wife rehab their home and not being a very good friend Schwartz begins his journey when he finds out that an old friend from high school had killed him

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversAn interesting and thought provoking book with some subtle and classy humor where you least anticipate it I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw it advertised as a coming of age novel about a generation that never grew up but that is exactly what it is Protagonist Charley Schwartz St Leo's high school class of 1991 has arrived at 2012 by doing the least amount of work possible starting but never finishing project after project Despite the fact that he holds a Master's Degree his friends are his high school classmates who have accomplished little than Charley has The class of '91 as a group seems incapable of viewing their current existence through anything other than the lens of their high school experience even though many of them hold jobs that would suggest they should have matured since then The book begins with Charley learning something surprising about the death of an Asian classmate Billy Billy who lived only on the fringes of t

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversI won this book in the Goodreads giveaway and this is my honest opinion of the book I just finished reading this book today and I think myself of being very fortunate to be able to win the chance to read such a wonderful book There are so many strong points that Schuster has applied to make this book an unforgetable experience For one it was really funny The entire book was very sarcastic with darkly implied satirical humor I found myself laughing out loud while I was reading this novella and half the time I forget that I'm reading this novella at all because it felt as if I w

    review The Grievers Ø eBook or Kindle ePUB The GrieversA friend of mine had recently won this book in the Goodreads Giveaways and her review of it made me sure I needed to read it Thankfully she was kind enough to loan me the book I read this book in one sitting The Grievers is a very compelling story mostly due to its highly relatable content As a person in their mid twenties I can only laugh at how accurately Marc Schuster portrayed what I’ve come to realize is my uarter life crisis We’re all stuck in our own heads and only perceive things most importantly ourselves as we perceive them Too many times we fail to see our decisions our attitude and how they affect others around us Charley is a shining example of our twenty something selfishness and his story is one that I am not likely to f
