    PDFEPUB Jane Smiley È PDFEPUB Moo Kindle À È nuiunde Moo ePUBWow can I give less than 1 star? This is going in to that rare list of books I cannot even get through It makes me very sad that this woman can get published and apparently won an award at some point in her life and I have friends who can actually WRITE who cannot Imagine if the author of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil had written his 150 pages of character development but hadn't actually been able to make you care about any of the characters Or in fact been able to convince you read past the first 50 pages And trust me I was bored enough at work that night that I would have read ANYTHING but it was pretty much sheer horror that got me that far in to the book To be fair it wasn't entirely Ms Smiley's writing that made this book a complete dud Her

    PDFEPUB Jane Smiley È PDFEPUB Moo Kindle À È nuiunde Moo ePUBThese days I am working mainly on the group of print books that I picked out to reread while I was sorting through my library Some I don't remember anything about although I have read all of them in the past I'm concentrating on them because I want the shelf space and I know some will be taking a short hike to the library donation bin I've read at least one other by Jane Smiley and I remember I bought this one because of how much I enjoyed the other And name recognition of course That's important at a used book saleBut I can't put up with this book this time around Too many characters too much going on and yet at the same time nothing happening just yet I've puttered along for almost 100 pages and the third time I had to stop and think 'Wait Who Are These People' was once too oftenI remember thinking it was pretty cool back about 20 years ago when I first read it but obviously my tastes have changed s

    PDFEPUB Jane Smiley È PDFEPUB Moo Kindle À È nuiunde Moo ePUBListen Jane Smiley is a fucking straight up genius and MOO is a hilarious intricate and brilliant send up of academia She effortlessly weaves together dozens of character viewpoints all while keeping a sort of empathetic humor at a slow boil throughout all of it It's really impressiveIt's also very interesting to me to see the very polarizing reviews of this book on one hand I can see how it's not that interesting to some people it is after all set in an agricultural college in the early 1990s but the author's voice and deftness seems irrefutable to me Aca

    PDFEPUB Jane Smiley È PDFEPUB Moo Kindle À È nuiunde Moo ePUBMy response to Smiley's novel was contradictory On the one hand I liked her ambitious attempt at depicting the entirety of a college campus covering students faculty and administration On the other hand there were just too many characters for any of them to be sufficiently developed I could never keep straight the four female students sharing the dorm in part due to the cutesy rhyming names thing but mostly due to the fact that Smiley didn't do a great job of distinguishing them from one another Similarly

    PDFEPUB Jane Smiley È PDFEPUB Moo Kindle À È nuiunde Moo ePUBThis book had a lot of potential A great storyline an interesting setting a talented writer But it was entirely disappointing The problem is with the characters NO ONE IS INTERESTING And yet the book contains detail after detail about the characters There are a lot of them One could anticipate this from the book's jacket Never raising her voice giving everybody his or her or its due Jane Smiley lets no one escape That is an understatement Each character is just as dull as the next and yet their flawed humanity is somehow supposed to be funny? Moo is choppy and uninspiring
