John Boyne ↠ 6 characters

review Beneath the Earth characters Ô PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ John Boyne John Boyne ↠ 6 characters Hitman – Boyne examines the hopeful and the damaged without prejudice or judgementThis his first collection of short stories is some of John Boyne’s finest writing to date It includes ‘Rest Day’ which won the 2015 Writingie Short Story of the Year award in Irelan This was a really compelling short story collection and it was fun to read one of my favorite authors in a different medium My personal favorites were Haystack Girl Rest Day The Vespa and Araby which is a modern retelling of the beloved Joyce story my favorite from Dubliners this time about a young boy coming to terms with his sexuality falling for the older neighbor boy and being invited to his rugby match it perfectly captures the wistful sadness of the original I will admit I don t love them uite as much as his novels Most of the stories were uite dark and while Boyne is no stranger to darkness in his work I found many of the characters in these stories unsympathetic as compared to the characters in his novels that I love dearly I know lots of people enjoy unsympathetic protagonists but it s not my favorite Regardless the stories were great and I finished the entire collection in only a few hours
