    MOBI Glass PDF/EPUB à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk glass pdf, Glass EpubThis is the most fun I’ve had with a British debut since Ned Beauman’s Boxer Beetle came out in 2010 Christofi recounts the brief and gently tragic life of Günter Glass a milkman turned window cleaner in the cathedral town of Salisbury The comedic mock picaresue approach should appeal to fans of Beauman Joshua Ferris and Matthew uickAlthough he is a figure of fun Günter is also a sympathetic protagonist trapped in an existential search for meaning Only by scaling tall glass structures does he get closer to understanding himself His preoccupations include Wikipedia Dutch waffles sign language and the interrobang a little known punctuation mark formed by merging a uestion mark and an exclamation point On the other hand there are also the highbrow literary references the footnotes are pure David Foster Wallace and Günter’s near namesake is the Nobel Prize winning German author G

    MOBI Glass PDF/EPUB à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk glass pdf, Glass EpubA strange book that I’m still processing but was slightly underwhelmed withGlass tells the story of Gunther Glass a twenty year old ex milkman and aspiring window cleaner Sounds a bit unusual right? Well it was the main reason I was attracted to this book I’m a bit sick of characters always having the same few professions so thought this would be a nice change Anyway back to the plotGunther having a head for heights becomes a minor celebrity when he climbs the spire at Salisbury Cathedral in London to replace a light fitting After this he receives a phone call from

    MOBI Glass PDF/EPUB à ↠ chickenshedcafe.uk glass pdf, Glass EpubA coming of age story about Günter Glass an aspiring window cleaner who is too innocent and clueless for his own good Overall this isn't a bad novel it has a narrative that flows fairly well and you can't help but be amused by the scrapes Günter manages to get himself into However in my opinion it has some issuesUnfortunately this fell foul of one of my bugbears the blurb on the back shared too much of the story We know Günter will end up cleaning the Shard but the story takes too long to get there You end up impatiently egging the story on to get to its inevitable conclusionThere's very little character development Günter starts off clueless and doesn't really seem to move on from there Most of the other characters seem fairly one dimensional or just bizarre I can't recall a character that I think I really likedWhich brings me on to the final issue whilst the story wasn't bad while reading it with hindsight it was ultimately forgettable I'll remember
