    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleI first read this book during unfortunate personal circumstances circa 1993 It immediately resonated with the 25 year old rebel that I considered myself to be at the time Over the years I've read this book about once every five years and am currently on my 4th copy after giving it to a number of folks with the understanding that they were to pass it along A lot of the reviews here want to make comparisons to cuckoo and notion For the life of me I can't understand why Sailor Song is an animal of it's own species Fantastic characters great story within a story and wonderful locations work together to form what continues to be one of my all time favorite bits of societal reflection Get over the ending folks That magnetic polar swapping stuff is all the rage these days Not to mention that watching and waiting for the sea to give up her dead or living for that matter is as archetypica

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleOne Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Sometimes a Great Notion are two of the greatest novels I've read Like those two Kesey's Sailor Song is full of memorable characters and a wonderful imaginative plot that keeps the reader intrigued Lots of social commentary mixed in too which holds up two decades after the book was writtenProblem is with a massive book like this the reader would expect a great payoff Kesey keeps the reader in suspense presenting a number of possible outcomes yet in the end throws the entire plot out the window This one is a huge disappointment I feel like Kesey backed himself into a corner with this one and simply couldn't figure out how to properly end itThe execution is classic Kesey Reading this book is a pleasure and it's enjoyable to be pulled into the Alaskan village he's created But tread carefully by picking this book up you are setting yourself up for disappointment If you've not read Cuckoo's Nes

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleThis book seemed much longer than it really was Other than the run in with Greener and the last two chapters not much interesting happened Any comparison with McMurphy and Sallas can only be found with two people on opposite ends of the spectrum Many reviews I read made them sound like the same person No colorful personalities in this town either Just a cast of trite characters in a rundown muddy hovel of a town But still not a bad book I loved how the last two chapters ran everyone's stories together with nothing than a paragraph break each time Before I read this I went out and bought Sea Lion so I could be familiar with the premise of this book not knowing that the Sea Lion is printed in it's entirety in Sailor Song

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleThe phrase I was searching for throughout Sailor Song was wish fulfillment It's difficult to read the protagonist Ike Sallas as anything but the man hero that Kesey constructed in McMurphy of One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest and really anything but a stand in for the agonized activist Kesey himself I'm loathe to draw comparisons between authors and their subjects but Ike Sallas is simply not a believable character and if he's just a construct well then I guess that's the only option we've gotThere's going to be a lot of discussion of the ending of the book a lot of angry confusion that at first gives you the sensation you're at the wrong end of a prank But in a strange way the ending works in a novel about futility and failure Sure the book is merry enough along the way with a wildly constructed future of Alaska featuring eternally burning garbage heaps overweight Irishmen dancing with their own bellies sudecitiveinnocent primitive beauties high flying adventu

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleChances are you've only read One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest Chances are you have no intention of reading this last Ken Kesey novel I'm not about to change either of those probabilitiesThis isn't even that long at 529 pages hardcover yet it feels bloated It reminds one of the reason that clarity is such an important attribute for writing to say nothing of the entertainment value It ultimately reads kind of like a joke that only the joke teller finds funny and the he laughs at it the less likely you are to join him in laughing There's a bit too much isn't this clever alliteration going on especially in the names of the characters Alice the Angry Aleut and while I admire some of Kesey's imagery and left field metaphors I really just wanted a stronger shorter clearer storyI'm still glad I finally read it however It's

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleWow I really liked this book for like 78's of the way through Kesey paints a wonderful picture of a small coastal Alaskan fishing village full of colorful characters that come into good fortune brought on by big business hollywood types There was just the right amount of salty sea anecdotes heroes dressed in middle class garb villains with suspicious motives vigilante religiosity paranoid drug pushers and reformed drunks all working the various angles of dealing with the draw of moneytourism to small town communities that made for an enjoyable read for most of the novel The ending really blew this book for me and left me frustrated with the author The novel seemed to be building toward revealing itself to be either a great tale of misfortune of the life of small fishing towns in the age of big business or a triumph of the spirit of a small town against its' own greed lead by heroic characters that we had grown to love Instead the ending twist left me as a reader

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleI never finished reading this but I watched Kesey write it at the Dirty D in Astoria When he held a book singing at the Maritime Museum after completing the book for the first and only timefor myself I went to get an author's signature on a book I once went to a book signing for a Star Wars book as a gift for my cousin Pete who loves Star Wars and liked that particular author I remember particularly the effort that Kesey put into personalizing each book He didn't just have a pen Best Wishes Ken he had an assortment of magic markers in various colors glue sticks glitter and other sparkly things and he would take a moment to talk to each person and then create a uniue signature in colored inks and sparkle I was surprised; if he took that much time with each person who wanted a signed book how long would it take for him to complete his book tour Other uestions aside the effo

    Sailor Song PDF EPUB ↠ Paperback sailor download, song ebok, Sailor Song KindleKen Kesey is one of the great riffers in the history of American letters Unfortunately this novel reveals itself in the end as nothing but one long riff with many sub riffs along the way – no plot no point no plan nothing but high wire literary acrobaticsWell okay not nothing Kesey has a gift for crafting memorable characters and although his literary voice can be tough and sardonic it can also be surprisingly empathetic Sailor Song has moments of great pathos and beauty along with moments of surreal invention and winning freewheeling humor What it doesn't have is an ending It's as if Kesey gave up on his own story and just hoped we wouldn't notice
