    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ The Canal ePUB ¹ The Canal ePUB Â canal book, The Canal kindle, The Canal PDFBooks and films about boredom tend to be boring but this bucks the trend A man bored of his job hands in his resignation to go sit on the same bench by the banks of a canal running through North London Contemplating the litter and graffiti the bird life the airplanes overhead and the windowed office block with all the wage slaves inside He credits that work and play are just time filling activities to persuade us that we are active and therefor not bored; he has seen through this and would rather own the shape of his boredom Two sections are

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ The Canal ePUB ¹ The Canal ePUB Â canal book, The Canal kindle, The Canal PDFIn this interview Lee Rourke says that The Canal is about boredom and the fetishisation of modern culture and violence especially the kind of violence that is deemed by its perpetrators to have a 'just cause' terrorism is a good example of this It is also about the Regents Canal in London; a bench; a man; a woman; a gang of youths; secrets; commuting; work; bicycle bells; canal dredgers; technology; swans; Canada geese; coots; memory; civil aircraft; the London bombers and 911 But crucially it is about the man the woman and the swan—and in particular the man's repressed desire the woman's repressed fetishism and the swan's ever present beauty That is uite a list and makes me feel like I should have liked this book than I did But before I try to explore what I l

Don't we avoid it? The unnamed narrator has left his job spending his days ruminating on life on an old bench near a canal in downtown London It's not the most scenic location dirty water a roving gang commuters and the occasional coot or swan may pass nearby but no one seems to sit Until himAs he sits he imagines the lives of the people who uite literally cross his path and he reflects on his own experiences Having the freedom to just sit is something he's not used to it's the power of everyday boredom that compels people to do things even if that something is no

    PDF tyrakel.de ☆ The Canal ePUB ¹ The Canal ePUB Â canal book, The Canal kindle, The Canal PDFI was really excited after the first few pages because I thought I was going to get a Nicholson Baker style story about a guy who is bored and has lovely thoughts about completely innocuous things that he randomly happens to look at Rourke certainly has the writing chops to pull something like that off And at times throughout this slim volume he'd go off into those types of tangents that I enjoy so much finding meaning and joy by embracing the spectacularly unspectacularWhich I think was or less one of the main themes of the book However once Rourke gets into the story parts he loses me There is a pretty ridiculous love story going on featuring a morbid version of the manic pixie dream girl trope and a lot of riddle infused dialogue that doesn't really lead anywhere particularly special It's all entertaining enough to keep the pages moving and I certainly got the impression that there could've been g
