This was not my book as much as i liked „the noise of time“ so much i disliked this one This is a „talmes balmes“ of intelectually constructed phrases aimed at nothing really Or the message of this book was so cryptic that i didnt get it I found it dull boring So as there are a lot of better books waiting to be read i have just turned the pages till the last one reading between the lines It started really good the first part was full of lyric And starting with the second part it got worseIt is about copying the original producing a copy which is aimed to be better than the original Ok and Is it about patriotism is it about Martha is it about sex is it about relationships is it about distorted reality I dont know really I dont know what I read At least for the first 34 of the book If you have another alternative to this book take the alternative maybe it will worth your time

Imagine being able to visit England all of England in a single weekend Big Ben the Houses of Parliament Stonehenge and Hadrian's Wall Harrods Manchester United Football Club the Tower of London and even the Royal Family all within easy distance of the each other accessible and best of all each one living up to an idealized version of itself This fantasy Britain is the very real and some would say very cynical vision of Sir Jack Pitman a monumentally egomaniacal mogul with a than passing resemblance to modern day buccaneers Sir Rupert Murdoch or Robert Maxwell 'We are not talking theme park' he began 'We are not talking heritage centre We are not talk. As much as I love Julian Barnes I am divided about England England On the one hand it illustrates in a satirical and sad way why England has such trouble finding its place in the world right now Julian Barnes undoubtedly has the intelligence and skill to write a poignant satire on the state of Englishness But maybe my timing is not the best I found myself constantly thinking that it is not funny any that it is too much to bear Maybe Julian Barnes in 1998 understood and captured the feeling of the future England 2016 and conserved it for me to suffer through at this moment in timeI read it in a couple of hours devouring it waiting for hope to appear and give me a glimpse of a better future But there is nothing but a replica of what we have already seen a million times to be expected of the same but condensed to a fun park experience and lived through in fast forward You choose what sad ingredients of English life you want to consume and Julian Barnes with all his genius is one of the many options you have He can not help making the list of the uintessentially English and neither can he help joking about it After all he is English as one of his characters conveniently states in defence of all his opinionsIt is a very readable book and very true in all its sarcastic absurdities It just made a sad and hopeless impression and I find it hard to apply the dry sense of humour of its content to the review Too serious a feeling of irrevocable loss

Considering the fact that I'm being forced to read this for my super dull post colonialism unit for college I have reluctantly grown to enjoy it But of course I will never admit it to my professor
