    kindle Ö Little Big Ò Mass Market Paperbackread Ø john crowley Little BigThis book astounded me Not in a good way I expected to like Little Big uite a bit from what I'd heard about it But like the Drinkwater house it looks smaller on the outside than it feels from inside Not in a good way I mean the book feels like it's a thousand pagesSome people like it as you can tell by other reviews the language is often uite clever it ends on a semi strong note and it plays with myth in some interesting ways These are all good things Bad things? Well the characters aren't compelling the clever language is often stilted and ponderously slow and almost nothing happens On top of that the fantastical aspects of this book were never surprising or especially interestingWhen it comes to the characters we run through four generations in about 600 pages This gives us slightly than a hundred pages per generation to get to know the characters and Crowley cle

    kindle Ö Little Big Ò Mass Market Paperbackread Ø john crowley Little BigThe story of a house all lit the house of four floors seven chimneys three hundred and sixty five stairs fifty two doors traveled far; they were all travelers then It met another story a story about a world elsewhere and a family whose names many knew whose house had been large and populous with griefs and happinesses that had once seemed endless but had ended or had stopped; and to those many who still dreamed of that family as often as of their own the two stories seemed one The house could be found Within the pages of this 'little' book lies a whole universe It is 'big' in concept and masterful in execution although the journey tends to be meandering and confusing at times given the Moebius strip timeline and the allegorical nature of the characters I haven't read all

    kindle Ö Little Big Ò Mass Market Paperbackread Ø john crowley Little BigWhat a terrible shame I was so set to love this book The blurb was good magical realism is one of my favourite things the book cover is so pretty I was so sure I was in for a five star read And for about 100 pages everything went well Then I realised that despite the beautiful writing style there was nothing for me to like The story was thin the characters barely existed much of the writing became incomprehensible I didn't give up and trudged on to the bitter end And I still do not understand any of it This is definitely a book you either love or hate I did not love it

    kindle Ö Little Big Ò Mass Market Paperbackread Ø john crowley Little BigI tried to read this but just couldn't slog my way through it The jacket copy sounded really intriguing but I didn't get halfway through it The biggest problem I had with this book was that I felt tried far too hard to be Airy and Phantasmagorical and Mystically Vague and forgot that a plot was actually necessary It wanders and doesn't actually get anywhere the prose was overstuffed and not a single character actually caught my attention I was disappointed beause it was a very interesting premise but the author just didn't pull it off IMO
