    Paperback ☆ Stoner PDF À stoner mobile, Stoner MOBII read Stoner after I saw that almost all my friends on GR had read it It’s an impressive work which I finished months ago but hard a hard time figuring out what to say about it with thousands of reviews already out there Stoner is the life story of an unremarkable man and the consensus seems to be “he did his best” He came from a Missouri farm family and a poor background but manages to become an English professor at the university One theme is the ‘loneliness’ and ‘distant courtesy’ of many of the characters which I think applies to Stoner himself This

Plenty of benevolent advices and platitudes will whizz around your ears to help you to bounce back Remember it is all in your mind Happiness is the result of your approach to life not of what happens to you Revolt anger complaining or denial won’t change anything Focus on what is instead of on what should be Accept accept accept Take one step at time keep moving keep working to what you want in lifeIn our times of voluntarist belief in shaping our own destiny only fools refuse or refrain to act or at least to try to take control of their own lifeBut perhaps the only sensible thing to do is keep breathing Minimal action minimal reaction Just embrace plain and simple old fashioned and untimely Stoicism L

    Paperback ☆ Stoner PDF À stoner mobile, Stoner MOBII was going to start out this review of Stoner by feigning comic incredulity that the former conductor of the Boston Pops wrote a novel about potheads but that is far far too obvious and unsatisfying even for the likes of me Instead I am going to confess that I read only half of it and thereby my ignorance has been properly disclaimed but that this aborted reading filled me with such unmitigated contempt for the author that I plan on mounting every soapbox if soapboxes haven't been technologically obviated by now from here to the Great Barrier Reef condemning this plodding tiresome amateurish book with an antagonistic passion that literature hasn't evoked in me since Cambridge's A Concise History of France wherein concision meant excising significant historical events in favor of agricultural data and a dimly Marxist perspective but I digress as alwaysI

    Paperback ☆ Stoner PDF À stoner mobile, Stoner MOBI a quiet sadness for the common plight was never far beneath any moment of his livingThis novel damn near broke my heart Come to think of it it did break my heart I’ve been picking up the pieces and trying to put them back together for the past eleven days since finishing it I don’t know what else to say that hasn’t already been said about this exceptional piece of writing We are William Stoner Isn’t there a piece of him in every single one of us? We go about our lives with the best intentions Looking for friendship Searching for love Thinking we’ve found it and then not exactly knowing what to do with it Making mistakes and yet enduring Sometimes doing battle but mostly resolving ourselves to our individual circumstances The past gathered out of the darkness where it stayed and the dead raised themselves to live before him and the past and the dead flowed into the present among the alive so that he had for an intense
