    PDF chadever.co É Norwood eBook Ú norwood kindle, Norwood ePUBI agonized over whether to give Norwood three or four stars—which tells me three things 1 I’m prone to exaggeration; 2 I really need to get a life; and 3 Goodreads should add half star ratings instead of worrying about retarded mascot contests and adding mostly pointless Facebookish features to the site which inevitably cause that damnable Alice pictureBertrand Russell uote to show up again Get your act together Goodreads This site is too big now to be run out of somebody’s garage with a week old burrito oozing into the ventilation slits on the server This is the big league and the big league demands fractional stars—which brings me back to point number two above Norwood is another triumph of characterization knee deep in Texarkana white trash color These are people who still pepper their speech with ‘nigger’ and wear outlandish cowboy accoutrements unironical

    PDF chadever.co É Norwood eBook Ú norwood kindle, Norwood ePUBHere's an eerie coinkydink I finished this almost exactly a year to the day that I finished The Dog of the South Even stranger two years ago at this time I was reading True Grit I guess there's just something about the month of May that makes me yearn for a Portis tale This one Portis's first novel reminded me SO much of The Dog of the South Our hero Norwood Pratt could have been the prototype for Dog's Raymond Earl Midge Both men are earnest and plain spoken single minded in their determination to retrieve what's rightfully theirs Norwood's seventy dollars owed to him by a military buddy and Raymond Earl's runaway cheating wife Both men embark on memorable road trips peopled by eccentric and colorful characters The humor here is fairly subtle

    PDF chadever.co É Norwood eBook Ú norwood kindle, Norwood ePUBPhenomenal I don't really know what to say I've been struggling to find a novel lately that completely captured my attention and pulled me fully into its world This one did the trick Norwood hooked me from the first page and never let go The characters are uirky without being stupidly over the top The dialogue is wonderfully Southern without being overwrought It's a perfect little novel you really could read in a single sitting It took me two sittings One thing that struck me about this novel I must say is its prodigious yet fascinatingly casual use of the 'n word' for a book published in 1966 I nkow the book is set in the mid 1950s but I still found it to be a bold but to my mind certainly not racist move during the ascendancy of the Black Power movement It certainly would have been the

    PDF chadever.co É Norwood eBook Ú norwood kindle, Norwood ePUBThis is the best one to read if you only read one other Portis novel besides ‘True Grit’ Everyone should read ‘True Grit’In a charming first novel Portis establishes his mastery of language in particular the Texarkana vernacular of well chosen detail that goes beyond apparent mundane triviality and really captures the American ambience as well as the human condition and of pitch perfect dialogueNorwood Pratt—another one of Portis’s strengths is names—is the title character a poor ignorant redneck who’s also a philosopher and philanthropist After getting a hardship discharge from the Marines when his

    PDF chadever.co É Norwood eBook Ú norwood kindle, Norwood ePUBI read this book in three sittings the longest while getting some shading work done a large side piece The three things that stand out is the specificity of the language the dryness of the humor and the protagonist's heroic transformation in spite of making bad decisions at every turn Norwood conducts himself with propriety which sad to say makes him something of a throwback yet one would be hard pressed to call him good natured In life I run from these kinds of people guided by other people's perceptions of the right thing to do but it's this rightness that makes the story taut A looser moral register and the story falls apart I like characters that are unnecessarily formal to the point of fussiness These kinds of characters present countless opportunities for humor This is where Charles Portis is a master There were places where I chuckled out loud which means something I think wh
