    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookI swore to myself I would write a proper in depth meaningful review of Lamb something that actually had some meat and substance to it not one of the one paragraph rush jobs I've often done when I don't have the time or inclination to get into a proper write up Something that would make people sit up take notice and think 'wow I really want to read this book'Of course it hasn't materialised yet because I find it really hard to write about books I love And I don't know

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookBonnie Nazdam's dual degree in literature and environmental studies shines in her debut novel about human desire and dependency and about the beauty and decline of the landscape resplendent in its rawness and fragile vulnerability Nature and humanity form a synergistic elixir that permeates the pores of the storyDavid Lamb is a disturbed fifty something man whose private aches are both diminishing and conuering him His life collides with Tommie who is only eleven years old when she approaches him on a dare in a parking lot Soon after that he has abducted her through his calculated and unctuous intrusions but she believes in her prepubescent mind that she has consensually agreed to his proposals He offers to show her the true beauty of nature and they abscond on a ro

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookClosing the last page of Lamb – Bonnie Nadzam’s psychological thriller – I realized I had been holding my breath for the final half hour It’s that kind of booksimilar to a one act play where the narrative keeps getting racheted up and screwed tighter and the audience can never ever even conceive of an intermissionDavid Lamb – an innocuous and gentle name if I’ve ever heard one – is a seductive narcissistic and damaged man on the sunny side of 50 who is experiencing

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookThis is a sick making book It’s about a child molester named David Lamb who kidnaps an eleven year old girl named Tommie It’s inevitable that with this theme Nadzam’s “Lamb” will be compared to Nabokov and his “Lolita”

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookLamb was a very disturbing book to read On the surface it appeared to be a story about a connection between a middle age man and a 12 year old girl There was no overt sexual abuse involved But under the surface Lamb was a pedophile He stalked and subseuently took a vulnerable 12 girl to groo

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookI’m not sure words can accurately depict how I feel about this novel other than to say that I really liked it DESPITE its severely disturbing nature Nadzam’s literary voice is stunning; I’ve never read a novel that so accurately characterized its cast through mostly short snappy dialogue It was utterly genius because the purpose it served was to truly illustrate the manipulative nature of child predators That Nadzam was able to get into the mind of someone this twisted and illustrate his beguiling nature is rather incredible to meI was eually awestruck by the lovely moving descriptions of the Midwest and the Rockies – such beaut

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookThe fact that so many readers here note the unsettling experience of this book speaks to successful writing The only way you won't feel a visceral reaction to Lamb is if you're not paying attention or not reading thoughtfully This book is just the perfect proportion of fuckedupedness to gorgeousness and totally riveting As I neared the end I kept rationing my reading so it wouldn't be over so uickly Thank you Bonnie Nadzam for such an amazing reading experience and kudos on the Flaherty Dunnan First Novel Prize

    Lamb PDF/EPUB ½ ¹ PDF/EPUB s2baby.co lamb kindle, Lamb eBookI also read this on the recommendation of the bookstore employees and now I am thinking that I don't trust them any When I read Nabokov's Lolita and here the comparisons are inevitable I was stunned that a pedophile could make a sympathetic character In Lamb it's unclear if sex with a child actually occurs though there's no uestion that the relationship at hand in inappropriate Perhaps it's the shock of the subject matter that makes this book alluring because it's definitely not the characters At times the writing is lovely when Nadzam is describing the countryside or when Lamb slips into storytelling mode Lamb is an aging man who is having an affair with a younger woman at the firm where he has worked for nearly twenty years His wife has left him and he goes on a three week leave from work to let things cool off He lies to everyone his former wife his boss the younger woman the child he meets and ultimately hims
