    MOBI Hernán Díaz ↠ MOBI In the Distance PDF/EPUB Ö In the Kindle - ↠ chadever.co distance book, In the epub, In the Distance PDFOne of the best books I’ve read all year The story and the narrative voice is completely captivating At times Diaz gets way too enad with his talent and goes on and on about some descriptive thing or other but man the story itself and how it is told is absolutely unforgettable Imagine the movie The Revenant if it were good

    MOBI Hernán Díaz ↠ MOBI In the Distance PDF/EPUB Ö In the Kindle - ↠ chadever.co distance book, In the epub, In the Distance PDFThis is an exceptionally well written book which might have been close to perfect if it weren't for the odd pacing that haunted its chapters While entire sections of the book were given to the description of a recipe or the unhealthy state of a horse's colon the majority of the story's main turning points were limited to only one or two paragraphs One particular section the battle between a group of settlers and a band of mysterious 'brethren' should have been fascinating but in fact was over almost before it beganNevertheless this was a Western like no other I've ever read and is sure to please any fans of the genre or of Literature in general

    MOBI Hernán Díaz ↠ MOBI In the Distance PDF/EPUB Ö In the Kindle - ↠ chadever.co distance book, In the epub, In the Distance PDFThis is one of the best books of the year It's like Cormac McCarthy except good Beautiful and suspenseful and alive with some of the best landscape writing ever Nothing interrupted the mineral silence of the desert In its complete stillness the world seemed solid as if made of one single dry block Diaz cleverly uses Hakan's lack of English to heighten the tension of the scenes There's an amazing drug induced scene in which Hakan looks at his own brain And perhaps most memorable is a beautiful 14 page chapter near the end in which Hakan lives a repetitious existence in the middle of the desert during which he sees no one for years and the words literally begin to repeat themselves not since Krasznahorkai's Satantango in wh
