    PDF/EPUB David Vann ✓ PDF/EPUB Caribou Island ePUB Á ✓ ant web.co caribou download, island ebok, Caribou Island PDF/EPUB Because you can choose who you'll be with but you can't choose who they'll becomeThis is a story of Gary and Irene not of an island The island exists physically and figuratively but this is a story of them Their love envy and hatred of one another His failings and her failure to realize it too uicklyThey've been together for thirty years both in their middle 50's and retired; they have 2 children one that loves and one that ignores The men in the family have always done what they wanted to do walking out under pressure The women tagging along while they live their life through their men being the doormat of their existence; the welcome sign shining always on the outside but furious

    PDF/EPUB David Vann ✓ PDF/EPUB Caribou Island ePUB Á ✓ ant web.co caribou download, island ebok, Caribou Island PDF/EPUBDavid Vann uses no uotation marks throughout this bleak depressing read Is his refusal to use uotation marks supposed to be some new Style of writing like texting? Why not just throw out all punctuation? We could all write in one long rambling paragraph Eventually we could even leave out the spacing between words I HATE what is being done to literature by those too lazy or too unlearned to write properly Vann's imagination is just so bleak so depressing he should see a doctor He obviously thinks everyone feels this way What a revelation it would be for him to get on medication discover there are things to like and love about life I certainly can believe he wrote Legend of a Suicide because this book sounds like he is suicidal The only reason I finished reading it was because I kept hoping there would be some meaning or some revelation for these characters What a waste of my time reading this was It's been a very long time since I waded through anything so useless
