    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted KindleOther reviews have commented on the style of this book in a negative way It is true that the narrator is pompous idiotic and boring He is also written about in a flat way and it's difficult to feel any empathy for him I believe this is intentional however and it demonstrates the author's skill The protagonist moves from being a bore to an audacious oaf to a despicable human being The book is written in memoir form and the fact that the entire novel is written from only his point of view demonstrates how shallow he is as a man No other character is developed very little is seen of the numerous people because the narrator has a microscope through which he views themhow he can get all he ever wanted A bit of irony exists in that the man is journaling his life but there is little if any introspection This beauty of this book is subtle the li

    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted Kindle'All He Ever Wanted' by Anita Shrive is described by the publisher as a novel about 'obsessive love' and although I find using the word 'obsessive' to describe love problematic I have to admit that I was transfixed by this story from the first page The novel is narrated by 64 year old antagonist Nicholas Van Tassel He relates his story to readers over the course of a train ride he is taking from New England to Florida to att

    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted KindleNever judge a book by itstitleNever having the pleasure of reading any of Shreve’s works prior to delving into “All He Ever Wanted” I admittedly formed an unfair and premature opinion of the novel based on its somewhat flimsy melodramatic title However I was soon to discover that it is definitely a fitting and descriptive cover for the thespian narrative that unravels within I was also taken unaware that this was a period piece set in New England in the early part of the 20th Century a fact I was all too happy to uncover as I am an aficionado of period works“All He Ever Wanted” is a heart wrenching account of unreuited love obsession jealousy and betrayal exploring the most intense and at times darkest workings o

    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted KindleAs my reviews always include spoilers I am warning the reader now This book was aptly titled It uite literally is about the things that he wanted and what he did to get them The book reads like a memoir as Van Tessal narrates to the reader his love affair with Etna Bliss Interwoven with this story is his own admonitions opinions and current status on a train to Florida to attend his sister's

    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted KindleI listened to this book on tape and have to say i wasn't into it at all during the first chapters However i stuck with it and was so glad that i did This book is a fascinating examination of the general s and attitudes of the late Victorian era i say this because i feel that the leading character Nicholas Van Tassel is very much a product of that time rather than the era in which the narrative actually occurs When one translates the Victorian Era to a stiff and stilted New England college town disaster occurs Actually set from the late 1890's through the early 1930's it is also a tale of how a man's obsession can lead him to unspeakable acts both in his personal life and in his career The genius of the author is that one can still f

    MOBI Anita Shreve ↠ MOBI All He Ever Wanted eBook Ø All He Kindle - ↠ bitcoinshirts.co ever epub, wanted ebok, All He epub, All He Ever Wanted KindleAfter I read the first chapter of this book I almost decided not to keep going The language just really got on my nerves Also annoying at LEAST once per page there is a section in parentheses For some reason this really got under my skin Needless to say I decided to give it a better chance I got used to both of these things and was able to finish itI think that the thing that I didn't like about this story is that the main character is so unlikable that it makes it hard to read I felt anger towards him and just sorry for him the whole time How obsessed and manipulative he was with his co workers and his family was unsettling t
