    MOBI The Slap eBook ☆ É 11th century.co É slap ebok, The Slap eBookI do not consider The Slap to be a great piece of writing I feel it was created to provide mass appeal I found the uality of writing a little patchy and in places offensive The basic premise is an interesting one the incident at the party and how it affects the lives of the people involved which in turn leads to a description history and character study of a group of loosely interrelated people The big moral uestion of whether the actions and reactions following the Slap were necessary and appropriate is an interesting one but one that I have no trouble answering No As a parent I have no hestitation in saying that if I was in a similar positon and somebody slapped my son for appalling behaviour I would have no problem whatsoever and my wife agrees Whilst I am against corporal punishment an occasional un premeditated impulsive slap whilst u

    MOBI The Slap eBook ☆ É 11th century.co É slap ebok, The Slap eBookHaving seen this spoken of so highly and having read the initial idea of how one instant can change so many lives i thought i'd give it a try i was disappointed Tsiolkas has an appalling view of humankind The way people think of each other and treat each other and stick with each other for the most ludicrous of reasons in his universe is depressing in the extreme The characters are all eithe

    MOBI The Slap eBook ☆ É 11th century.co É slap ebok, The Slap eBookI positively HATED that book I only finished it because when I start a book well I just finish itFirst of all Language There is at least one occurrence of the word “fuck” “fucking” or even “cunt” I am no prude but in this case it was way too often and totally unnecessary That was one of the first thing that ruined this book for me Especially when you have the 70 something greek granddad talking to his long lost friends and saying” hello you cocksucker” totally unrealistic and again why? Or when Aisha who is perceived by all the other characters as the most elegant refined women they know is having a torrid affair and thinks in the crudest language possible again the scene was ruined and the character as wellI do concede that Christos Tsiolkas manages very well to immerse you the life of each of his 8 characters and

    MOBI The Slap eBook ☆ É 11th century.co É slap ebok, The Slap eBookThis was one of the best books I've read in a long time Filled with despicable but ultimately somehow sympathetic characters a microcosm of friends and family becomes a commentary on the social make up of the city of Melbourne the country of Australia and perhaps the world That the story is told from multiple perspectives but still chronologically ie the episode around which the plot is centred isn't retold again and again is genius and the complex nuanced emotions of reactions to and repercussions of a single event are ably described and brought to life by Tsiolkas An uncomfortable but highly recommended read
