    MOBI Christos Tsiolkas Ä The Slap Epub à Ä slap free, The Slap eBookThank you Christos Tsiolkas you finally made my mind up for me and I have flung your horrid novel away from me in a graceless convulsion which mixed repulsion and depression in equal parts with a dash of glee Because for many pages I was desperately seeking a casus belli Something I could put my finger on I was a closet Slap hater at this point I couldn't quite admit the horror of this novel to myself I needed to find something definite a line in the print where I could say thus far and no fartherOn and on I read And finally one such moment arrived on page 225 The scene is the grimy household of Rosie and Gary and their son Hugo who is somewhere between three and four years of age Hugo is the slapee of the story Now one of the things about Hugo is that he's still suckling at his mother's breast which everyone thinks is a bit gross because he's nearly four you know and I was agreeing with this since every single time Hugo hove into v

    MOBI Christos Tsiolkas Ä The Slap Epub à Ä slap free, The Slap eBookI do not consider The Slap to be a great piece of writing I feel it was created to provide mass appeal I found the quality of writing a little patchy and in places offensive The basic premise is an interesting one the incident at the party and how it affects the lives of the people involved which in turn leads to a description history and character study of a group of loosely interrelated people The big moral question of whether the actions and reactions following the Slap were necessary and appropriate is an interesting on

    MOBI Christos Tsiolkas Ä The Slap Epub à Ä slap free, The Slap eBookI read this book a few years ago and thought I would write a review as I recently watched the US TV mini series based on the book I also watched the series a couple of years ago that was filmed in Australia I love the fact that Melissa George was cast as Rosie in both versions First off I hate this cover The one I have is a bit different I just don't like seeing a child on the ground obviously upset and crying When I picked it up in the bookstore and read the back I thought the premise was fantastic and original A man slaps a child Hugo at a friends and family barbecue Hugo is not his child and the book explores how this event affects everyone that was in attendance at the barbecue I was very intriguedThe book was compelling to say the least While there is a varied cast of characters in the book it is written from the viewpoints of eight characters All of these characters were present

    MOBI Christos Tsiolkas Ä The Slap Epub à Ä slap free, The Slap eBookHaving seen this spoken of so highly and having read the initial idea of how one instant can change so many lives i thought i'd give it a try i was disappointed Tsiolkas has an appalling view of humankind The way people think of each other and treat each other and stick with each other for the most ludicrous of reasons in his universe is depressing in the extreme The characters are all either racist sexist drunken or sluts or indeed in a few cases all of the aboveThe idea of tracing the lives of witnesses to the slap in question would have been interesting if a they had been believable and not monstrous caricatures bYou felt any fellow feeling for them at all c the slap had had an effect on their lives which reading the novel it didn't Tsolkias attempts to use it as the hook on which to place the unravel

    MOBI Christos Tsiolkas Ä The Slap Epub à Ä slap free, The Slap eBookThis was one of the best books I've read in a long time Filled with despicable but ultimately somehow sympathetic characters a microcosm of friends and family becomes a commentary on the social make up of the city of Melbourne the country of Australia and perhaps the world That the story is told from multiple perspectives but still chronologically ie the episode around which the plot is centred isn't retold again and again is genius and the complex nuanced emotions of reactions to and repercussions of a single event are ably described and brought to life by Tsiolkas An uncomfortable but highly recommended read
