    MOBI stroyki.pro ´ Lamb PDF/EPUB ✓ lamb kindle, Lamb eBookThis novel written by MacLaverty in 1980 is very different from his other famous book from that era 'Cal' but eually good and almost as depressingThe book tells the story of Brother Sebastian Michael Lamb in 'civilian' life a woodwork teacher in a remote borstal in Donegal who has just lost his father and is having doubts about his vocation At the same time he has serious reservations about the treatment of Owen an epileptic troubled and troublesome 12 year old pupil at the hands of the establishment's head Brother Benedict Armed with part of his inheritance he suggests to Owen that they abscond to London which they do posing as father and sonEven in 1980 such an event makes headline news and despite the 'innocence' of the relationship unsurprisingly it is uickly established that the pair are being sought While 'on the run' Michael's paternal love for the child is evident and MacLaverty tells the tale with sympathy some suspense and a bit of humour However things take a somewhat p

    MOBI stroyki.pro ´ Lamb PDF/EPUB ✓ lamb kindle, Lamb eBookWhat a horrible dark depressing fascinating deadening emotional wonderfully written book Someone once told me that all literature is ultimately either about God or about the absence of God I'd put this in the latter category Do you ever read something and you're kind of mesmerized by it but you get to the end and think WTF was that? Well that's how I felt about Lamb

    MOBI stroyki.pro ´ Lamb PDF/EPUB ✓ lamb kindle, Lamb eBookA well written book that aimed beyond Ireland with all its way too obvious symbolism and what not but never reached my continental heart I wish Michael killed Owen two chapters into the book It made me annoyed to go through all the fuss of Michael taking the boy from Ireland to London and back The naïvety of the main hero just made me hate priests even than I already did

    MOBI stroyki.pro ´ Lamb PDF/EPUB ✓ lamb kindle, Lamb eBookA straightforward plot with such economic writing style and short accessible chapters that made me want to read all of MacLaverty's works this was my first In my mind this book was 5 stars for much of the way through but there were just a couple of things that caught me off guard towards the end First the main character Michael Lamb at times I felt that his motives could have been explained a bit MacLaverty greatly emphasizes the love that Michael has for the teenage Owen but he doesn't give as lengthy an explanation about why Michael cares so much even amidst realizing he doesn't care about the belief system he's chosen to live out as a Catholic teacher Secondly while I read much of this book I was amazed by how contemporary the writing felt I'm still shocked in some ways that it's a nearly 40 year old book The prose is elegant and still feels as if it were written today However at the end the characterization of Haddock gave a clear sign of the time the book
