[ Pdf Still Life with Woodpecker õ quilting PDF ] by Tom Robbins Í I remember over the years, I would come across Still Life with Woodpecker every now and then in bookshops and book bazaars Each time, I would take it in my hands, read the backcover and put it back on the shelve I don t know why, although it seemed interesting to me, something always stopped me from buying it Of course I was aware of all the praise about it but that is never enough for me to want to read a book.
I think I get why it became such a big success all over the world Its romantic and at the same time cynical aura can be appealing to people of both sexes But let s face it people It s not a masterpiece While it s full of cheesy themes and everyday philosophy, it lacks the ingredients that make a Reading this book is like being invited over to someone s house for dinner, and finding that they re serving you a buffet of artisanal maraschino cherries they ve made At first you re like, Oh, how whimsical Then you re like Oh, and you flavored this one with cardamom How clever of you And then you re like Oh, another one I really shouldn t and as your host just keeps piling on artisanal maraschino cherries they crafted from hand telling you how each one corresponds to an orgasm by a famous historical figure, you re like No dude seriously, this is getting fucking irritating That was this book for me No denying Robbins has a way with words, but the way is over engineered, contrived, and extremely irritating.
Also, the way he writes about female genitalia grosses me out It reminds me of how an 14yo honors student virginal boy would talk about genitals Impeccably worde Still Life with Woodpecker Is A Sort Of A Love Story That Takes Place Inside A Pack Of Camel Cigarettes It Reveals The Purpose Of The Moon, Explains The Difference Between Criminals And Outlaws, Examines The Conflict Between Social Activism And Romantic Individualism, And Paints A Portrait Of Contemporary Society That Includes Powerful Arabs, Exiled Royalty, And Pregnant Cheerleaders It Also Deals With The Problem Of Redheads I learned that if you have red hair you can write a crappy book and people will love it I could have written this book in college The jokes were forced, the premise was too ridiculous to take seriously, and the payoff was weak, weak, weak It was little than a sophmoric creative writing assignment taken, like, way too far Plus if you can t write female characters to be anything then complex sexual fantasies you should just not even try I got the sense that the lengthy passages discussing the main characters flower were written johnson in hand In fact mastubatory would be a good word to describe this crap both literary and otherwise.
The most important thing is love, said Leigh Cheri I know that now There s no point in saving the world if it means losing the moon Leigh Cheri sent that message to Bernard through his attorney The message continued, I m not quite 20, but, thanks to you, I ve learned something that many women these days never learn Prince Charming really is a toad And the Beautiful Princess has halitosis The bottom line is that a people are never perfect, but love can be, b that is the one and only way that the mediocre and the vile can be transformed, and c doing that makes it that Loving makes love Loving makes itself We waste time looking for the perfect lover instead of creating the perfect love Wouldn t that be the way to make love stay The next day, Bernard s attorney delivered to her this reply Love is the ultimate outlaw It just won t adhere to any rules The most any of us can do is to As my lack of stars indicate, this book is ok However, the Best thing about the book is the following quote one of the most influential in my life How can one person be real than any other Well, some people do hide and others seek Maybe those who are in hiding escaping encounters, avoiding surprises, protecting their property, ignoring their fantasies, restricting their feelings, sitting out the Pan pipe hootchy kootch of experience maybe those people, people who won t talk to rednecks, or if they re rednecks won t talk to intellectuals, people who re afraid to get their shoes muddy or their noses wet, afraid to eat what they crave, afraid to drink Mexican water, afraid to bet a long shot to win, afraid to hitch My favorite book of all time I used a quote from this book in my wedding vows It is funny, silly, and romantic.
gotta say this is my favorite book of all time, expertly written like prose than an actual novel who can resist a book whose first sentence is if this typewriter can t do it, then fuck it, it can t be done
Let me first tell you that I dislike modern jazz You know the type the free form kind that only musicians can appreciate I dislike it because it abandons all the structural qualities that I find appealing about old fashioned jazz and is all about technical skill What does this have to do with this book The comparison came to me early on in reading this book which I begrudgingly forced myself to finish I liken modern jazz to watching a performer masturbate musically on stage, getting off on playing his crazy stuff and proving he s really talented, but ultimately seeming to be having fun than his audience Reading Still Life with Woodpecker felt kind of like watching Tom Robbins masturbate And with the narrative flowing regularly into explicit and colorful descriptions Who knows how to make love stay 1 Tell love you are going to the Junior s Deli on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn to pick up a cheesecake, and if love stays, it can have half It will stay.
2 Tell love you want a memento of it and obtain a lock of its hair Burn the hair in a dime store incense burner with yin yang symbols on three sides Face southwest Talk fast over the burning hair in a convincingly exotic language Remove the ashes of the burnt hair and use them to paint a mustache on your face Find love Tell it you are someone new It will stay.
3 Wake love up in the middle of the night Tell it the world is on fire Dash to the bedroom window and pee out of it Casually return to bed and assure love that everything is going to be all right Fall asleep Love will
