FREE READ Milkman By Anna Burns Anna Burns É 1 DOWNLOAD READ ´ ASICSRUNNINGSHOESOUTLET.US É Anna Burns About her encounter with Milkman But when first brother in law sniffs out her struggle and rumours start to swell middle sister becomes 'interesting' The last thing she ever wanted to be T. This book is a current favorite for winning the Man Booker Prize in 2018 Its fame comes from the distinctive Voice of Middle Sister So it s a voice book that makes me think of others the brogue of Swing Hammer Swing by Jeff Torrington or The Oldest Living Confederate Widow Tells All by Allan Gurganus At the time I write early 2019 the book already has 13000 rating on GR and than 2200 reviews So I ll go easy on the summary You ll probably like it or you won t as there is a dichotomy in the reviews with mostly 4 s and 5 s but many 1 s and 2 s with a lot of DNFsThe Voice this isn t a uote but a list of vocabulary to give an example Ach aye yeah middle sister wee sisters my maybe boyfriend his maybe girlfriend renouncers the opposite religion over the water over the border this side of the road that side of the road it s not wee buns ach aye no Here s an example of the voice from a passage where her mother talks to her about her deceased father She meant depressions for da had had them big massive scudding whooping black cloud infectious crow raven jackdaw coffin upon coffin catacomb upon catacomb skeletons upon skulls upon bones crawling along the ground to the grave type of depressions There is very little back and forth dialog but passages of conversation are included in the one paragraph per page structure The story is all centered on the euphemistically called Troubles in Northern Ireland especially from the late 60 s through 1988 The author was born in 1962 so she lived in the Belfast during all this time and was ten at the time of peak violence 1972 More than 3500 people were killed in the violence from shootings and bombings or shot by British soldiers or by paramilitary groups on each side Catholic and Protestant her opposite religions This is a huge amount of deaths for a city the size of say Toledo Ohio or Plymouth UKEvery family in the story is touched by the violence in some way and in those days Catholics had large families In the main character s family she has had a brother shot and a brother in law killed by a car bomb Another brother is on the run because he is wanted for violence by the police an older sister can never return because she married someone of the opposite religion and went to live in England Daily life is shaped by the conflict Her maybe boyfriend is in trouble for holding on to a British made car part There are our shops and their shops the right kind of butter the TV shows you can and can t watch James Bond movies are out the right and wrong kind of tea and first names for boys no Clive Wilfred Norman Keith Edgar Clifford or a dozen others Paramilitary guys on each side hold kangaroo courts to keep their people in line You don t call the police or an ambulance that gets you notice from the authorities and it s likely they won t come anyway for fear of an ambush There are constant camera clicks as authorities take pictures from behind trees and in parked cars Middle Sister is odd and stands out a mistake in that environment She jogs and she reads while she walks She attracts the attention of a paramilitary guy know as the Milkman who stalks her She s18 and her mother has been after her since she turned 16 to do the proper thing and get married and start having kids There s good writing No one has ever come across a cat apologizing and if a cat did it would be patently obvious it was not being sincere I opened my mouth not sure to say something or maybe just to have it hang open I liked I gave it a 4 rather than a 5 It was uite good but it did seem to drag out a bit

Man Booker 2018 WINNER So well deserved congrats Anna Burns I loved Milkman but it s so painfully niche I can t think of anyone I d personally recommend it to Set in an unnamed city that s probably Belfast in the 1970s Milkman follows an unnamed narrator who s believed by her community to be having an affair with a man known only as the milkman who isn t actually a milkman Told in stream of consciousness prose and set against the backdrop of the Troubles Milkman doesn t offer much of a plot but it does provide a perceptive and intelligent look at a community under duress and constant surveillance It also starts with these stellar opening lines The day Somebody McSomebody put a gun to my breast and called me a cat and threatened to shoot me was the same day the milkman died He had been shot by one of the state hit suads and I did not care about the shooting of this man Others did care though and some were those who in the parlance knew me to see but not to speak to and I was being talked about because there was a rumour started by them or likely by first brother in law that I had been having an affair with this milkman and that I was eighteen and he was forty one But this book is hard work I will readily admit that Though I loved the narrator s sharp observational commentary even I found the narrative style painfully long winded at times Paragraphs go on for pages chapters go on for hours the kind of concentration it takes to really immerse yourself in this novel can be draining This is not what anyone would describe as an easy read and I think it s the kind of book that s going to fall under the category of I appreciated it but I didn t like it for a lot of people This line of thought actually made me reflect on what it means to like a book because I wouldn t describe my reading experience as fun necessarily but despite that I found Milkman incredibly rewarding Anna Burns deftly crafts a living breathing community and paints a portrait of the realities of living in a city torn apart by civil unrest Rumors and false perceptions dog these characters and our narrator in particular who s considered an oddity a beyond the pale due to the fact that she often reads while walking In order to fit in in a society like this every time you leave the house you have to bury a part of yourself and Milkman incisively and comprehensively examines the toll that takes I don t know if I ve ever read another novel that so expertly evokes the kind of anxiety that comes from the inability to trust your neighbor or even your own family Characters in this novel operate under a veil of formality that you as a reader want to peel back to reveal their genuine hopes and fears and aspirations but of course all you re able to do is mutely watch them navigate social situations while unable to truly express themselves This book can be infuriating because of that but it s supposed to be There s also an undeniably feminist undercurrent to the whole thing as the narrator laments the difficulties uniue to women during this time though it remains a subtle element throughout Though it s ultimately of a psychological story than a historical one drawing obvious parallels to any number of totalitarian regimes across history Milkman does feel firmly rooted in its Northern Irish setting This is a recognizably Irish novel from its stream of consciousness prose to its pitch black humor and there s no uestion that that played a huge role in my ultimate enjoyment of it so above all else I think I d recommend this to anyone who loves Irish lit and Irish history but who can tolerate a lack of plot and likes their novels a bit on the philosophical side Personally I ll be thrilled if this is shortlisted for the Booker but I also doubt that likelihood as it s not the kind of novel that s destined to reach a wide audience not that the Booker necessarily prioritizes accessibility but I would just find it unlikely if all five judges are in complete agreement about this one s merits enough to advance it But who knows This had already been on my radar before the longlist announcement but I m very happy that it pushed me to read it sooner than I
