    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookThis is an early Bainbridge written in 1975 I'm not an expert as the only other I've read by her is the stupendous 'What Harriet Said' basically in a class of its own The opening chapters of this however are very good with our heroine Ann falling in love with the William her symptoms are similar to the flu Jokes aside the infatuation she feels the first heady passions are astutely described and then for me at least the story falls away as the focus becomes William and his hedonistic lifestyle

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBook'Sweet William' by Beryl Bainbridge 4 stars8 out of 10I have read several books by Beryl Bainbridge in the past so was pleased to have the opportunity to read this novel'Sweet William' tells the story of Ann a rather naive young woman whose life is turned upside down on meeting William a self declared playwright The story is told primarily from Ann's point of view but the reader again and again suspects and eventually knows just how much she is deluding herselfBainbridge writes with wit and verve I found the account of the harvest festival very funny and the description of Ann's Christmas with her parents displays Bainbridge's acerbic wit to its full Yet Bainbridge still allows us to develop sympathy for many of the characters in the novelFor example Ann's mother whilst she has many unsympathetic characteristics provides several poignant moments It was a pleasure to read this book and I am glad that it has been republ

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookSometimes I really enjoy Bainbridge’s sharp often acerbic short novels but at other times they just don’t work for me and I’m afraid this is one that didn’t work It’s a banal enough tale Ann is recently engaged but then is swept off her feet by the dynamic and charismatic William and suddenly all the security and certainties of her life are upended She’s powerless to resist him – and I just couldn’t see why He’s too much of a caricature to be a sympathetic character although I understand he’s based on the writer Alan Sharp with whom Bainbridge had a relationship and she claims the character is not exaggerated and I didn’t feel any empathy for Ann and her plight Well written as all Bainbridge’s novels are but this one missed the mark for me

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookThis wasn’t my favorite Bainbridge While it is written in her distinctive style with carefully observed detail I didn’t understand the characters or their motivation As a result I wanted to slap the women and run as fast as I could away from the men

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookIn Sweet William Beryl Bainbridge takes the darkly comedic tone that she previously used in her novel The Bottle Factory Outing and turns it into something even bitingly ironic and disturbing This marked change is in part due to the focused subject matter of this novel The novel’s unassertive protagonist Ann finds herself swept up into a bizarre relationship with a playwright despite being engaged to a professor I think the comedy of this novel in part stems from the fact that Ann has somehow caught the attention of two relatively intelligent and academic men despite the fact that she is relatively dull and mousy in comparison In some ways she is very

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookFor her sixth novel Bainbridge returned to one of her favourite themes the tension between the old world of traditional English values and Sixties 'permissiveness' for want of a better word Although an enticing era and one that was likely a whole lot exciting to live in than our own of iPhones JD Wetherspoon and Beyoncé the 'open mindedness' of the age was so often an excuse for men in particular to behave very selfishly and so it proves with the eponymous figure that lends this excellent character study its name Why the various women in the novel keep on forgiving and returning to the cad at the centre of the book is a mystery to all of us even if most of us have been there to lesser or greater degrees As with most Bainbridge novels I have read the opportunity to afford a book a rating of 3 and a half stars would have been welcome

    ePUB Beryl Bainbridge ô Sweet William MOBI à ô sweet epub, william pdf, Sweet William eBookI found this slim comedy at a secondhand book shop At first I wasn't sure what to make of itit seems that the author feels disdain for all of her characters and wants her readers to feel the same way Once I accepted that the story was about lousy and weak willed loser characters making bad choices and that the book is satire I really got into the story An odd but funny and mean look at the aftermath of the Sexual Revolution in the 1970s
