    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBPerhaps it’s not being so stuffy to admit that a collaborative novel especially when it involves seven collaborators doesn’t sound terribly appealing After all writing isn’t a democratic enterprise and novels are fitful fragile creations They can too easily cave in under the weight of a gimmick or come apart without the adhesion of a single author’s vision Which only makes Finbar’s Hotel impressive If collaboration is a risk that invites disaster then it must also make room for triumphOK “triumph” may be stretching it a bit but Finbar’s Hotel really is quite good The brainchild of Irish writer and editor Dermot Bolger it features the work of such Irish literati as the Booker Prize winning Roddy Doyle author behind such screen hits as The Commitments and The Snapper Joseph O’Connor whose claim to fame is making fun of Irish manhood and being Sinead’s brother as well as Jennifer Johnston Ann Enright Hugo Hamilton and Col

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBI like that the short stories both stand alone and create a tapestry Creating together a much richer understanding of Finbar's and gives extra glimpses of the CharactersI re read like mad but this one is always an extra sweet re read surpriseNot the most interesting or original idea but it certainly works well for what it does One thing that does upset me is that the reader is not told who authors each of the sections so I can't stalk the author of the stories I like the best

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBOne or 2 of the stories were slightly interesting the rest were slightly or very disturbing A few seemed to have really no point at all or maybe I was just too dense to read into what the author was trying to convey I kept hoping it would get better and that the next author would come up with a creative story but each time the stories were disappointing Too bad because the book had such potential to be a great insight into some different personalities Most of the stories were a little too depressing for my taste

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBThis was a 4 purchase at an old used book barn which intrigued me with the blurb on the page proceeding the title page about the authors being listed alphabetically but with no attribution to each story I'm a sucker for a good mystery and being the geek that I am I did a little research on the development of this book I learned that it began with an idea and each author in an unknown order read the previous authors' stories and ran with their own idea By this time I am totally into the

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBThis is an interesting idea Seven short stories all based at Finbar’s Hotel Dublin which is shortly to be closed down and renovated Each story is written by a different Irish writer and is based on an occupant in one of the rooms We are not told which writer wrote which story However each writer has also picked up from the previous story and so even as they introduce a new character the various characters featured in the other tales may appear too as “bit players” The stories also reveal something of the lives of the staff and the history of the hotel As someone who hates lack of continuity this led to a lot of looking back to see if the mention of someone in one story tied in with what it said previously I really liked this concept but unfortunately was not

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUB“The seven voices represented here are distinct but the very occasional jolts that come when one chapter ends and the next begins are than offset by the sustained excellence of the writing Dermot Bolger not only contributed one of these chapters perhaps the opening story about the hapless husband Benny? but is also credited with having devised and edited the entire volume He has done a superb job of allowing his colleagues their freedom while at the same time imposing enough structure to make the whole greater than the sum of its parts”New York Times—Katharine Weber whose novel ''The Music Lesson'' is set in County Cork teaches fiction writing at YaleDermot Bolger Roddy Doyle Anne Enright Hugo Hamilton Jennifer Johnston Joseph O'Connor Colm Tóibín have each written a chapter in this book

    Paperback · Finbar's Hotel PDF ´ finbar's epub, hotel book, Finbar's Hotel PDFEPUBI read this book for a book club my neighbor invited me to attend When I finished the book I felt like there had been no point in reading it Because it consists of 7 short stories there was not enough time in each to build up a plot It wasn't uplifting I didn't learn anything It was filled with trash such as adultery rape stealing etc I was not impressed It was a waste of my time
