    PDF/EPUB Neil Ansell Ý PDF/EPUB Deer Island Kindle Ã Ý it ural.pro deer book, island mobile, Deer Island KindleI started Deer Island thinking I'd just read for thirty minutes before bed I put it down in the early hours when it was nearly finished and all hopes of a full night's sleep were gone and I'm still trying to define its appeal The uality of the writing certainly has something to do with it; the prose is clean and bare yet wonderfully descriptive but there is something than styleI'm also trying to define the book It doesn't fit easily with convenient labels 'Memoir' is probably the closest fit since it structured as personal recollections Ansell has lived and worked with the destitute has himself been a suatter and has wandered the wild places of the earth This slim book could also be seen as a series of vignettes; of poverty of lifestyles of places all of which are articulated with sharp clarityI think I was hooked by the way he writes with such respect even love for the kind of people most of us hurry past in the street; the alcoholics and home

    PDF/EPUB Neil Ansell Ý PDF/EPUB Deer Island Kindle Ã Ý it ural.pro deer book, island mobile, Deer Island KindleThis book is way outside the classifications I generally read In fact it is probably outside classification altogether It is a sort of social issuesnature memoirRealistically the author's life experience is way outside mine Leaving aside the two main topics of the book in the intermission as it were he is riding an ancient motorbike around the far North of the UK with his Swedish girlfriend In a rough Scottish town he is told to keep his voice down as it's a rough place and if he were noticed it would be provocative He comments he had often been told this in Belfast Harlem and Bogotà H

    PDF/EPUB Neil Ansell Ý PDF/EPUB Deer Island Kindle Ã Ý it ural.pro deer book, island mobile, Deer Island KindleThis is a memoir of a young man on the road The narrative is beautifully descriptive and it brought me into each setting gently but firmly Author Ansell’s experiences teach an important lesson Since we don’t always know the exact nature of those we meet as we follow our chosen course we should at the very least try to find something of value in everyone and use that as the basis for our interaction From life among those people considered outcasts of our society into a life with no human interaction at all Ansell shoulders his pack and travels onwards His restless wandering leads him across the UK through gritty urban alleys and broad fields

    PDF/EPUB Neil Ansell Ý PDF/EPUB Deer Island Kindle Ã Ý it ural.pro deer book, island mobile, Deer Island KindleThis was one of those serendipitous discoveries for me in my local bookshop I picked it up and noticed the name of The Simon Community on the back I lived and worked there for a few months in the early nineties so I picked up the book and paid for it It's well written and evoked the undercurrents of London life well the freedom and rootless news of a certain age and place I've never been to Jura and couldn't uite see to be honest what he was getting at by linking those two places specifically out of all the other places he's visited In that respect I felt like it missed the mark ever so slightly but maybe I'm just thick Anyway it's a short crackling read and if you ever dropped out of the world for a while and immersed yourself in travel or voluntary work you'll probably find something here that touches a chord

    PDF/EPUB Neil Ansell Ý PDF/EPUB Deer Island Kindle Ã Ý it ural.pro deer book, island mobile, Deer Island KindleI confess to a slight disappointment with this book It's a slim volume a Little Toller volume it's a memoir that's getting my expectations up high I enjoyed it but it wasn't uite what I was expecting I take no issue with the experiences Ansell writes about or the uality of the writing per se and it certainly seems a worthwhile exercise to contrast the experience of volunteering with homeless people and living in a suat in London with his time in the Scottish Isle of Jura except that he really only made two visits to Jura to judge from the book neither of them long and the book feels like he just sat down and wrote about various episodes in his life articles rather than actually constructing a book
