I assume there's going to be a third book detailing the fall of our friend Tom Cromwell, and until then this account of the machinations employed to dethrone Anne Boleyn is terrific. It has the feel of a second book in a trilogy -- a feeling which is both supported and dashed by the awesome last line of the book. Not quite as intricate and overwhelming as "Wolf Hall" but terrific in its own right and totally engrossing.
One detail I found very funny: it took me a little while to get wrapped up in "Wolf Hall", and one of my main complaints was the confusing pronoun usage (so many "he"s and TO WHOM DO THEY REFER FOR CHRISSAKES?!). In "Bring up the Bodies", if Mantel uses a "he" in a sentence, she frequently ends it with "...; he, Cromwell." I guess she got a lot of complaints like mine!
I just got the new 8th Printing "Millennium Edition" of this wonderful book. This new edition is clearer than previous editions and includes valuable Internet resources for support, recipes, success stories, and more.
I took drugs for 15+ years to battle my Crohn's. Nothing really worked. I finally started the SCD four years ago and have been able to maintain a controlled remission, drug free, since 1997! This diet has changed my life! For me, this diet provides better results than the drugs ever did, without the long-term side effects. After 1.5 years on the SCD I finally allowed my doc to perform a colonoscopy. The results: "We got all the way to the cecum. No evidence at all of Crohns. No scars. No inflammation. Nothing. You look completely normal." (Ahem - and this from a doctor who previously claimed diet had nothing to do with IBD.)
My recommendation to IBD sufferers: get this book and start the down the path to sustainable remission. Diet has everything to do with getting better--find a new, more supportive doc if yours disagrees or learned otherwise!
My only regret is not having started this regimen sooner!
Do not, I repeat, DO NOT handle this cable without wearing the "3 Wolf Moon Shirt" one size smaller than what you normally wear (to allow it to mold to your awesome form). Once you have the cable in hand, fashion it into a neck chain and allow the "Denon Ethernet Neck-Cable" to properly amplify the awesomeness of the shirt, the cable should be just the right size and if correctly used it will make it look like the Neck-Cable is holding up the moon which the wolves crave. Once you have this delicate balance in place, have a glass of Tuscan Whole Milk. You now have the irresistible "Aura Of Awesomeness"TM that will last for at least 3 hours.
Once under the "Aura Of Awesomeness"TM you may experience that women in pickups are strangely drawn to you, you will get "secret" discounts if shopping at Wal-Mart and you will be given free admission and VIP to any local monster truck rally; best of all you will now understand why you need the book about living with a huge ... it will all make sense.
I think Kara King is the absolute best! I mean she holds no punches and I live it , also because I was a beast when I were young juggling many not being obligated to no one. All of a sudden I marries this awful man who changed my life in the worst way because of his deception, five years later divorced ,single and happy I still need to brush up on those skills I used to have and I will with much determination. I thank you so much Kara King.
This truly is not like any biography that has been written before. Dozens of voices coalesce to tell the narrative of Salinger’s life. Sometimes the voices contradict one another on this or that point, but it only adds to the richness of the story. I can’t imagine how much effort it took to comb through the letters, interviews, etc. in order to piece together this narrative.
It’s not only a story about the life of a reclusive writer; it’s a reflection of much that happened in America during Salinger’s life. The first third of the book focuses on World War II and the devastation inflicted upon the American (and German) army. Voices from the war portray its horrors as vividly as I’ve read in some of the best WWII novels. Regarding the infamous Battle of the Bulge, the authors quoted none other than Ernest Hemingway when he said of the German attack, “There’s been a complete breakthrough, kid. This thing could cost us the works. Their armor is pouring in. They’re taking no prisoners.” After the war, Salinger writes of the war in a letter, “What a tricky, dreary farce, and how many men are dead.”
From WWII, we see how Salinger completes and publishes The Catcher in the Rye, and subsequently begins to withdraw from public life. I enjoyed The Catcher in the Rye when I first read it in middle school, but loved it when I had to read it for English class in high school. I had a particularly good teacher, one whose words have stuck with me through and beyond college, and he turned the book inside out for me to really understand and think critically about. What I love about this biography is that at particular points in the narrative of Salinger’s life the authors insert quotes from Catcher that connect that story to what happened his life, so that the reader can see the direct influence of Salinger’s experiences on his writing.
From the various anecdotes in the book I got the impression that Salinger was an overall unpleasant man and I feel relieved to have never met him. He seems to have enjoyed lecturing others and blaming them for any misfortune that had ever befallen him. I do sympathize with him, as he suffered from severe PTSD and was shafted early on by the only woman he ever really loved (while he was at war, no less). Still, I can’t help but see him as terrible grouch, neglectful of his friends and family and self-absorbed beyond understanding.
Great props to David Shields and Shane Salerno, and even greater thanks to those who contributed to this astoundingly rich biography.
