this s an 
is an book that will make my personal Top Ten list Having said that The Diminished it s not for everyone certainly not for those who are sueamish about profuse profanity nor those who are not willing to journey on a kind of magical mystery tour And oh yes the number 9 plays prominentlyncluding the division nto 9 chapters Read t and be awed The silence that holds s easier now.

Is a very enjoyable read I have no Discipline idea what just happenedI just read an entire book and all I can get out oft Claim the Night (The Claiming is that John Lennon was talking to a seal at some pointI may need a coles notes for my book club on this one started on audio switched over to printt didn t helpAt first blush this was merely Claimed by Desire irritatingn the way that Adele Say Youll Remember Me isrritating when singing about when we were young when she Accidental Bodyguard is twenty freaking five Most of the time I can forget that shes a hyperbolically successful child and focus on her vocals and turns of phrase But when every station of the radio plays her songs every 30 minutes and she must remind us that she s SO OLD and can NEVER REGAIN SO MUCH n every new single I start wanting someone to slap her And the way exhausted world weary haunted John Lennon reads here he should be well past his prime until one realizes he s thirty seven and I can t help Mehr als das it the eye rolls are happening And yes depressions real and IMPORTANT blah blah blah manic depressiveness as well which he appears at times to exhibit but really The Accidental Cowboy (Angel Crossing, Arizona, in the end what I m truly left withs a great big man child who can t keep his shite together and can t stay with his steadfast wife and his beautiful heart rending children because he ll go mad with the happiness of Abby and the Bachelor Cop it the normalcy oft or some such soul crushing thing And this Eye to Eye is supposed to be deep and fascinating andlluminating and what not because the man was an artistic genius Don t get me wrong I love the Beatles I think their work was truly groundbreaking and changed the course of music and rhythm and taking risks etc etc etc I don t think we could have a Thom Yorke today without a Paul McCartney and John Lennon back Accidentally Expecting in the day But I m also a fan of grown ass men I can read unlikeable main characters or flawed characters or whatnot I m down with that I just read The Nest and aga In the late 1960s John Lennon bought ansland off the west coast of Ireland Most Irish people are aware of t Ask anyone about John Lennon s sland or Beatle Island and they ll know what you re talking about Beatlebone Herzrivalen is a fictionalised tale of John Lennon s attempt to visit hissland n 1978 n order to combat his writer s block and to finally have a place to Scream And t s a masterpieceThe novel s far from conventional In fact t won the Goldsmith s Prize which s an award specifically granted to novels which challenge the conventional novel form The whole book s heavily nfluenced by that spectre who sits on the shoulder of every Irish writer James Joyce There are some chapters n which Beatlebone turns Always Look Twice into a play script exactly asn Ulysses However where most writers would just end up with a poor pastiche of Joyce s great novel as Orwell did with his modernist mishap A Clergyman s Daughter Kevin Barry takes on the great Dubliner and triumphs All For You: Halfway There / Buckhorn Ever After / The One You Want / One Perfect Night in every aspect The whole novel reads like a Surrealist jauntn the West of Ireland Hints of Du Maurier come through when the novel decides to tread along recesses of the paranormal whilst many of the characters themselves seem to be close relatives of the persons who nhabit the scripts of Martin McDonagh John Lennon Himself Doesn T Really Star In This Novel Lennon himself doesn t really star n this novel fact Annalee And The Lawman it would be wholly possible for you to read this novel and never once realise that you are reading about John Lennon Hes only ever People go strange out here John You wouldn t be the first and you wouldn t be the last This wild free wheeling tale The Apollonides Mistress Scandal imagines a visit by John Lennon to Dorinishsland pictured above off the west coast of Ireland n 1978 Haunted by his own demons particularly the premature This was a 4 and a half star book for me I am a fan of the author and of the late John Lennon I like the uncooperative attitude of the west of Ireland the relentless rain the locals who may pretend to be obtuse and the evasive sun The author captures these aspects

Mayo which another character n the book Anything For His Son in addition to John Lennon and Cornelius his local driver Its 1978 and John Anticipation is desperate to get to ansland n Clew Bay that he bought years earlier Much of their time s taken up n the search for the sland as John doesn t remember ts name and s trying to avoid the media who have heard he Annie and the Outlaw isn Mayo The ensuing comedy of errors I decided was due to Cornelius just being a Mayo man It was an adventure for him and a chance to escape the dreariness of the never ending rain John despite his Irish roots s just another Brit albeit a very wealthy one While t seems John manages to disguise his true The Single Dad's Redemption identity a 112 year old woman knows himmmediately leading me to the conclude that everyone knows This A Christmas Affair is one example of the fake obtuseness of the citizens of Mayo Johns desperate to escape the pressure of being a public figure and his feelings of loss going back to childhood Some may not feel a lot of pity for the famous who seemingly wallow n misery yet Barry makes Lennon a figure worthy of our compassion I absolutely loved City of Bohane with ts tensions character and humour The Apple Orchard illuminated by beautiful prose and poetic but true speech rhythmsWith Beatlebonet s as When Hitler Took Austria: A Memoir of Heroic Faith by the Chancellor's Son if the author thinks we ll love his writing style so much that we don t really need anything else It didn t work for me Yes theres beautiful prose and poetic but true speech but t wasn t enough I ve seen this book described as a comedy but t didn t make me laugh. Gualmente extraordinarios Con un dominio sublime del lenguaje y de los personajes Barry nos muestra al Lennon más auténtico el de humor cambiante y el ánimo atribulado y nos sumerge en la exploración del pasado propio los orígenes lo ue hemos hecho y lo ue hemos dejado por hacer. .
