    eBook Robert Graves ð ð Seven Days in New Crete MOBI ☆ Seven Days PDF or in seven free, days pdf, crete book, Seven Days pdf, in New pdf, Days in New download, Seven Days in New Crete PDF/EPUBI love Robert Graves and really wanted to love this book but I just couldn't Unlike his historical fiction masterpiece I CLAUDIUS this book is a futuristic flight of fancy that is untethered from any recognizable version of actual human experience Don't get me wrong I love good fantasy and science fiction but this book is a good illustration of the truth that the further removed the plot and setting of a story is from what we might call objective reality the grounded it needs to be in terms of sentence and scene level emotional and sensory accuracy The book's fanciful story world and highly implausible premise reuire suspension of disbelief on nearly every page and Graves makes little to no effort to meet the reader halfway An amusing diversion at best

    eBook Robert Graves ð ð Seven Days in New Crete MOBI ☆ Seven Days PDF or in seven free, days pdf, crete book, Seven Days pdf, in New pdf, Days in New download, Seven Days in New Crete PDF/EPUBObscure long out of print minor novel Really enjoyed it Who knew Graves had a sense of humor? He pokes uite a bit of fun at academics himself included The only reason the book was the least bit intelligible to me is because I know Graves' peculiar and complex take on Greek mythology and European pre Christian religion One erudite reviewer on GoodReads began his 1 star critiue with This is a profoundly stupid book That made me laugh as much as the book did Because the man is right If you read the story from a modern POV it is incomprehensible

    eBook Robert Graves ð ð Seven Days in New Crete MOBI ☆ Seven Days PDF or in seven free, days pdf, crete book, Seven Days pdf, in New pdf, Days in New download, Seven Days in New Crete PDF/EPUBI don't often read the blurb on the back of a book before reading because if I trust a recommendation to read a book in the first place then I prefer to know as little as possible about it in advance However I didn't pick this up on a recommendation; rather I stumbled upon it in a library Too often the blurb on the back can throw spoilers at you that I would rather avoid but that was not the case this time uite the opposite It lead me to expect something rather different from what I got uite misleading in fact While reading a book with inappropriate expectations is not as annoying as accidentally encountering spoilers in this case it proved rather annoying as the story was far less interesting that the blurb on the back led me to believe it

    eBook Robert Graves ð ð Seven Days in New Crete MOBI ☆ Seven Days PDF or in seven free, days pdf, crete book, Seven Days pdf, in New pdf, Days in New download, Seven Days in New Crete PDF/EPUBThis is a profoundly stupid book The problem that is the thing that makes it so stupid is that Robert Graves as will be well known to anyone who has ploughed their way through 'The White Goddess' or any of his other extraordinary Goddess influenced works was a man of strong convictions who had no use for any form of reason doubt or introspection And so in this book which purports to be yet another in the series of literary anti utopians what strikes one most is not the reflected critiue of contemporary society or of the ideals of some in contemporary society but Graves' extraordinary assumptions which are unapologetically on display for all to seeThus we learn that it is natural that the 'common herd' of humanity are inferior beings unfitted to governing themselve
