    PDF/EPUB David Bergen å Leaving Tomorrow Kindle µ å leaving pdf, tomorrow kindle, Leaving Tomorrow KindleOkay David Bergen we get it You read a lot of books You know a lot of things You are really really fond of describing young women's breasts David Bergen is obviously a gifted writer I don't so much read his books as devour them whole but the problem is that it's almost like binging on candy ie it's empty reading calories I found myself often rolling my eyes at Arthur Wohlegmuht or at the way the women in this book are written David Bergen writes women in ways that rarely feel entirely fleshed out or real like they're just caricatures of what the author thinks women must be like I would say it's just the narrator who doesn't see women as whole people but after reading almost all of David Bergen's oeuvre I have

    PDF/EPUB David Bergen å Leaving Tomorrow Kindle µ å leaving pdf, tomorrow kindle, Leaving Tomorrow KindleThis was a slog for me to read I hated that Arthur remembered his wet nurse is he omniscient no just epileptic? No one was likeable or even seemed to grow which is odd for something that is ostensibly a coming of age novelThe only parts I enjoyed were those touches of Alberta as not many novels are set here I also liked the inclusion of other writers uotes which in itself is a telling statement

    PDF/EPUB David Bergen å Leaving Tomorrow Kindle µ å leaving pdf, tomorrow kindle, Leaving Tomorrow KindleThis book was recommended to me so I decided to give it a try I'm not sure that I liked it all that much but it is well written so therefore I've given it 3 stars Bergen is a Giller prize winning author for his book The Time In Between which I read 3 or 4 years ago There are similarities to this book as Bergen talks about the Vietnam war and he also explores someone who is suffering from post traumatic stress He did this in The Time In Between as well but I think he did a better job of it then This book is a coming of age novel about young Arthur Wohlegmuht a young Alberta Mennonite boy Arthur is a thoughtful young man but he also has an inflated opinion of his own worth Rather than looking for and falling in love with real women who live laugh and cry he puts all the women he meets on a pedestal and attempts to worship at their feet As you can imagine this doesn't go well with the women and Arthur finds himself perpetually

    PDF/EPUB David Bergen å Leaving Tomorrow Kindle µ å leaving pdf, tomorrow kindle, Leaving Tomorrow KindleI was disappointed with this story Not only did Leaving Tomorrow struggle with a lack of direction in the plot but the characters were simply not that exciting either The protagonist Arthur was difficult to really like; he was for the most part self absorbed and seemed to feel he was better than his family and the people of Tomorrow Alberta His uest to find himself in France where he was certain he would find fame as a gifted writer simply went nowhere either If I had to sum up the book I would simply say it went nowhere
