    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleGirls A Novel by Frederick Busch is a 2011 Ballantine publicationThis is an older novel which was recommended to me from a book group I decided to join The synopsis sounded different but promising While the book is absorbing in many ways the focus is mostly centered on Jack and Fanny’s relationship and grief and less on the missing girls for the most part The last uarter of the book does begin to concentrate on that thread but the relationship issues are still overpowering As the story progresses it becomes darker and very disturbing

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleI’ve always liked the way that Joyce Carol Oates has been able to capture the “uiet desperation” of muddling through in the average lives of New England and New York I had never read anything of Frederick Busch before and this story of a nearly broken former cop turned security guard and his near obsessive investigation into the disappearance of a local girl is impressively hauntingNot really a whodunit – the investigation is almost secondary – but the book follows the protagonist's inexorable drag into obsession and its effects on him his marriage and his life Real and raw – and with amazing

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleI wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get into it At first it was the subject matter because I hate dead baby things but then I didn't care for the protagonist The big reveals were so drawn out and late that I guessed them; that always puts me a little out I felt like I was walking through an architecture museum beautiful examples of structure and counterbalance and fascia but nothing wholly formed to transport me to another place

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleTo call a novel messy may be an unusual way to compliment it but that word comes to mind after I read “Girls A Novel” by Frederick Busch What I liked about this 1996 novel is that many of its components are messy The weather – upstate N

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleThe best word I can think of to describe Frederick Busch’s novel Girls is muscular The novel has certainly received much higher praise than that Glamour Magazine called it “powerful” and went on to describe it as an intriguing crime story although the novel’s real strength lay with the main character’s “growing insight about his marriage his town and himself which transforms this page turner about lost children into a tender and elouent examination of the even greater mystery that is the human heart”Jack is a somewhat cantankerous Vietnam veteran who is currently a campus cop at a small college in upstate New York His wife Fanny is an emergency room nurse Jack and Fanny are mourning the recent loss of their infant daughter Hannah They can barely be in the same room with each other and so they work opposite shifts drifting past each other in a haze of exhaustion and griefThen a local girl goes missing and som

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleThis is the only Frederick Busch book that I've read so I wasn't sure what to expect His writing style reminds me a bit of Cormac McCarthy in that both of them can convey so MUCH with so FEW words It's a gift to find a writer that with a single sentence gives you the feeling of being kicked in the gut with its power and it happened with this book numerous times The subject matter that of the disapperance of a young girl and the toll it takes on her family and our protagonist Jack is very dark and difficult to think about let alone be will

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleOverall I just think I didn't really like the narrator of this book and that's the real reason I didn't enjoy it I loved that it was set at my alma mater and I really wanted to love the whole book since the author is a Colgate professor but I just didn't enjoy reading it

    Epub Frederick Busch  Girls Epub ß Â girls mobile, Girls KindleI liked it but I probably won't read another As a mystery it's not too puzzling The author flagged whodunnit well before the protagonist figured it out The character was interesting up to a point By the end I kind of had him figured out too He's not that different from the good but broken man with a dark past in a lot of other books Maybe better written than most I think some of the books appeal was that in my youth I was one of those simple but good hearted townies portrayed in the book different college but not too far from thi
