As you might expect from the title this books gets a little dark but because it is by Coe there is also a lightness and a depth to it that you might not expect William is a not very mature loser not the most sympathetic of characters but the 200 pages you spend in his company are gripping enough to keep you going till the end And this is in my few the point where the book shows its weakness To me the ending is tied up a little too uickly and in not enough details Although it is possible that exposure of too many details would also reveal insurmountable flaws in the plot line Best perhaps to leave it a little vague It's mostly fluffy and certainly entertaining in any case

William é um rapaz sensível e um eterno incompreendido ue chega a Londres para tentar a sua sorte no meio musical Mas a sua vida dividida entre os clubes de Jazz londrinos The Dwarves PDF e auilo a ue se chama lar é uma longa cadeia de frustrações a bela Madeline por uem está apa. William is a young keyboardist in London trying to make it in the music biz But on the night of his first rehearsal with a new punk band it’s the ‘80s he witnesses the lead singer getting murderized by two dwarves Could William be next and whydunit The Dwarves of Death is my least favourite Jonathan Coe novel that I’ve read so far It starts well the premise is intriguing and ends sorta ok but despite it being relatively short at just over 200 pages barely anything happens in between to justify its length William has a crap relationship with his girlfriend Madeline he tries to write music he writes notes to his flatmate Tina and that’s about it Thinking about it I’m amazed Coe was able to write so much about so little The ending is rushed and hella contrived with the motives appearing out of nowhere in a failed attempt to give the largely directionless story some kind of narrative cohesiveness The dialogue was good and some lines made me chuckle “And if we leave this life with dignity what is there to regret” “That’s very true” said Tony “How did your father die” “Gangrene of the scrotum” p42And Coe’s prose is smooth even though this is only his third published novel But as a novel it’s much too long and lacking in substance for me too much of not enough Cut out most of the waffle leaving the beginning and end and you’ve got a decent short story As it is The Dwarves of Death isn’t worth bothering with even for fans of the author

REVIEW ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ï Jonathan Coe

The Dwarves of DeathIxonado mostra se inacessível não consegue evitar ue a sua banda destrua sistematicamente os seus poemas e melodias transformando os em paródias grotescas e inaudíveis e o vazio ue sente faz com ue até um simples tempo de espera numa paragem de autocarro pareça ser um desesperado. Coe characters challenge your own self esteem so directly
