Read at your own risk. This book comes from Visit to find out more or support the author. License/5(). Half a Life is another of Naipaul’s stories of alienation. In this case, however, the central character is not merely frustrated in his efforts to attain a particular goal; when the book ends.

    Half a Life is an unusually honest, thoughtful and unsettling memoir, which readers and critics are destined to call 'brave'—for it is brave. But the book is more than simply brave, it is a searingly self-disciplined work of literature, and of self-examination. Darin Strauss does not permit himself even one sentence, even one moment, of lazy thinking, or mitigating excuses. The book begins by starting off with the life story of Willie Chandran's dad, in India. Willie Chandran's father was part of an affluent family with positions high up in the government, starting from when his grandfather first landed a job working for the king, which was then succeeded by that grandfather's son, which was finally supposed to be.

    The Washington Post wrote that Half a Life has a universal appeal, calling it a "penetrating, thought-provoking examination of the human mind." Do you think it has a message for people beyond the narrow, car-cash one? If so, what is it? Strauss's parents are quite present in the early part of the book; less so as the story progresses.   His dating life — until meeting his wife — was rife with doubts about whether and when to share his secret. But Strauss is not a showy writer, and “Half a Life” is not trivial Author: Dani Shapiro.

Naipaul. We listened to the first Episode of Half Share today and it was the same wonderful style and narration that we loved in the first book. I will have to pre-listen for the PG content, I guess, before allowing her to hear the episodes but we have listened to QS three time right through and it was a joy every time, so I doubt it will be a chore!.

Quarter share was not a bad book and I had hopes for this series but Half Share turned from OK into nothing more than the main character preening over his looks (and discovering who he wants to be as a man through purchasing the right clothes - ugh, give me a break) and girls fawning all over him.If that were the plot by itself, then.
