    Kindle Christos Tsiolkas ï The Slap PDF/EPUB Ã ï slap kindle, The Slap eBookThis isn't any old review My opinion on this book has sparked an idea for a discussion I'd like to have with you about offensive content in novels I'd like to know how you react to it But first let's get to my review of this bookThis book was written by a very highly acclaimed AustralianGreek author I have to say that I admire him and his blatant honesty And this is the first book I've read of his I find it hilarious how so many people who have read this book have given it bad reviews and low ratings because they believe that the characters were horrible and the language was horrible and 'why would anyone want to write about such uninteresting people?' It really makes me laugh because clearly the people who have these opinions have totally missed the point Op

    Kindle Christos Tsiolkas ï The Slap PDF/EPUB Ã ï slap kindle, The Slap eBookI do not consider The Slap to be a great piece of writing I feel it was created to provide mass appeal I found the uality of writing a little patchy and in places offensive The basic premise is an interesting one the incident at the party and how it affects the lives of the people involved which in turn leads to a description history and character study of a group of loosely interrelated people The big moral uestion of whether the actions and reactions following the Slap were necessary and appropriate is an interesting one but one that I have no

    Kindle Christos Tsiolkas ï The Slap PDF/EPUB Ã ï slap kindle, The Slap eBookI read this book a few years ago and thought I would write a review as I recently watched the US TV mini series based on the book I also watched the series a couple of years ago that was filmed in Australia I love the fact that Melissa George was cast as Rosie in both versions First off I hate this cover The one I have is a bit different I just don't like seeing a child on the ground obviously upset and crying When I picked it up in the bookstore and read the back I thought the premise was fantastic and original A man slaps a child Hugo at a friends and family

    Kindle Christos Tsiolkas ï The Slap PDF/EPUB Ã ï slap kindle, The Slap eBookHaving seen this spoken of so highly and having read the initial idea of how one instant can change so many lives i thought i'd give it a try i was disappointed Tsiolkas has an appalling view of humankind The way people think of each other and treat each other and stick with each other for the most ludicrous of reasons in his universe is depressing in the extreme The characters are all either racist sexist drunken or sluts or indeed in a few cases all of the aboveThe idea of tracing the lives of witnesses to the slap in uestion would have been interesting if a they had been believable and not monstrous caricatures bYou felt any fellow feeling for them at all c the slap had had an effect on their lives which reading the novel it didn't Tsolkias attempts to use it as the hook on which to place the unravelling or uaking of various relationships and there is a certain cleverness to the way the stories interreact and relate but the slap is of no real significance except for the tota

    Kindle Christos Tsiolkas ï The Slap PDF/EPUB Ã ï slap kindle, The Slap eBookI positively HATED that book I only finished it because when I start a book well I just finish itFirst of all Language There is at least one occurrence of the word “fuck” “fucking” or even “cunt” I am no prude but in this case it was way too often and totally unnecessary That was one of the first thing that ruined this book for me Especially when you have the 70 something greek granddad talking to his long lost friends and saying” hello you cocksucker” totally unrealistic and again why? Or when Aisha who is perceived by all the other characters as the most elegant refined women they know is having a torrid affair and thinks in the crudest language possible again the scene was ruined and the character as wellI do concede that Christos Tsiolkas manages very w
