    MOBI Lauren Groff ó Arcadia PDF/EPUB µ ó arcadia pdf, Arcadia MOBIAm I just the buzzkill who wouldn't drop acid at the party? Did someone shut off the volcano that fueled my lava lamp? How do I explain my huge disappointment in this book? I who loved The Monsters of Templeton and Delicate Edible Birds found Arcadia unreadable Why? The story is slave to the style Groff uses a floaty present tense semi random flow that very nearly resembles a plot but not uite Everything is seen through the eyes of Bit a little boy who somehow doesn't seem to be all there upstairs There's no appreciable dialogue or character development The whole thing has a sort of dreamlike uality which I suppose will appeal to some readers This is a weird book that a lot of people will like It breaks my heart to give it one star because I like Lauren Groff But I hated the book Resented it too because I was so looking forward to it Sorry folks Buzzkill over

    MOBI Lauren Groff ó Arcadia PDF/EPUB µ ó arcadia pdf, Arcadia MOBILauren Groff’s lovely and poignant Arcadia is a novel of sublime sensuality It is redolent of the ripe husky scent of pot and unwashed bodies the strumming of guitars and gasps of lovemaking the taste of warm blackberries plucked from the bush and popped into the mouth the glow of naked flesh in moonlight the feel of a mother’s soft full breast of a father’s muscled callused hands The key to the novel’s earthy nature is its narrator Bit who begins his story at the age of

    MOBI Lauren Groff ó Arcadia PDF/EPUB µ ó arcadia pdf, Arcadia MOBIOh what a fine novel this is one of the few I feel is worthy of the 5 star rating This is a book that leaves you sad because it has ended but also happy because you have read it and got to know Bit his mother Hannah and his father Abe whom I wish could be real people who are greatly admired friends of mine living their lives of clarity and substance somewhere in the wilds of upstate New York not so far from meThis is a finely crafted exuisitely written and particularly interesting novel especially to those of us of a certain age who grew up among idealistic people searching for a better and peaceful life people known then as hippies People who like many of the characters in this book may have found that the dreamed for utopia isn't always much of a utopia Lauren Groff's literary gifts are evident in this book and the pleasure of them is all ours I am shouting from the rooft
