    eBook Michael Cunningham µ µ The Hours PDF/EPUB ï hours ebok, The Hours Epub”We throw our parties; we struggle to write books that do not change the world despite our gifts and our unstinting efforts our most extravagant hopes We live our lives do whatever we do and then we sleep it’s as simple and ordinary as that A few jump out of windows or drown themselves or take pills; die by accident; and most of us the vast majority are slowly devoured by some disease or if we’ve very fortunate by time itself”It’s about the hours right? Those few precious hours over a lifetime when we feel we have a chance to do something special to prove that we can do something that will forever immortalize us as someone exceptional It was Charlotte who pressed this book upon me We were at a party conducted by a Mrs Clarissa Galloway “I hear

    eBook Michael Cunningham µ µ The Hours PDF/EPUB ï hours ebok, The Hours EpubI hesitated between 3 and 4 stars for this book It was beautifully written and has a somewhat unexpected and yet unsurprising ending The references to Virginia Woolf are omnipresent as she also comes to life under Cunningham's pen along with Mrs Brown and Mrs Dalloway Yes it did relight a flame in me to read the primary Woolf works Orlando Mrs Dalloway To The Lighthouse The Waves and reminded me of the one I did read A Room of One's Own but still something about it felt a little superficial Was it the length just 220 pages and the relative ease with which I read it less than 2 hours? Or perhaps the heavily laden sentences that perhaps dipped low towards being pretentious? No I have never seen the movie And yes perhaps I should But as a standalone novel I have a hard time underst

    eBook Michael Cunningham µ µ The Hours PDF/EPUB ï hours ebok, The Hours Epub“We want so much don’t we?”“The Hours” is one of the best books I have read this year It is astounding I was drawn in from the first page; the writing is just beautiful proseThe setup of the novel is that we drop into the lives of 3 woman Virginia Woolf while she is beginning to write her novel “Mrs Dalloway” in 1923 Laura Brown a housewife reading “Mrs Dalloway” in LA in 1949 and Clarissa a woman who seems to be a real life Mrs Dalloway in current NYC Although this premise is intriguing it pales in comparison to what the author Michael Cunningham does with it Interesting side note the ever shifting point of view in this text is not limited to these three characters We get into the heads of uite a few people in this book and Cunningham does this at times when the novel needs that shift in perspective It is a wonderful technical achievementIn one early

    eBook Michael Cunningham µ µ The Hours PDF/EPUB ï hours ebok, The Hours EpubIn 1941 Virginia Woolf put rocks in her coat pockets waded into a river and drowned herself That was the prologue – a disuieting start to The Hours a book I started reading with nary an inkling of its subject matter Little did I know that The Hours was anchored in the life of Virginia Woolf and that of Mrs Dalloway one of her fictional characters I read To the Lighthouse and Mrs Dalloway when I was too young to grasp the awe accorded to them; all I recalled at the time of reading was the certain hunch I had that Woolf must have had a mental breakdown at some point in her life All the wonder surrounding the stream of consciousness eluded me at that time And I have been afraid of Virginia Woolf ever sinceIt was with trepidation that I dipped my toes into the chilling waters of The Hours I emerged from the haunting deep darkness of this book with the exhilaration of a survivor I saw brilliance and b
