    1. This book was my introduction to Michael Cunningham, and when I finished it I cried And then went out and bought everything he d ever written I fell in love with this book At that time in my life I could relate to its characters and their story in a unique way, but it was also Cunningham s writing spare, lovely, gorgeously aware of minutiae, devastatingly honest There is a sadness in his work that fills me with a profound loneliness that I find myself both overwhelmed by and grateful for A Home [...]

    2. This is the Less than Zero ish novel of the popular NYC writer, and just like Bret Easton Ellis depiction of the derelict children of sunny Cali in the 80 s, Cunningham encapsulates the latter 80 s in the East Village and early 60 s, 70 s in the stark midwest with lost souls and unique individuals.The plot is this Two guys and a gal play house together because they are equally in love.Obviously there is to it, as it differs somewhat from the pretty damn good movie with an additional character E [...]

    3. Directly after I ve finished the book THAT, my friends, is an excellent example of a literary fiction And it is not easy to rate the books of the genre They could be everything from 2 to 5 stars Well, I have to decide between 4 or 5 in this specific case, but it won t be easier to write a review for it The reason WHY I love literary fiction it makes you not only feel, but think, think a lot Oh, yes, it can even detect our hidden individual talent for philosophy.Now I ll go into my tub to think a [...]

    4. You don t necessarily meet a lot of people in this world This is the first of Michael Cunningham s books I ve read, but I will be reading all of them He just flat gets it By the time I was halfway through, I or less disliked two of the three main characters, but I wasn t tired of reading about them I wanted to figure them out I wanted to like them and if I didn t, I wanted to understand why This is one of those books that you read a sentence or a paragraph or a scene and it hits you deep down, [...]

    5. I only sort of liked this, so I honestly don t have too much to say about it It wasn t remarkable, but it wasn t awful.It basically follows a set of three friends one women, two men and examines their relationships, both with each other, and with people from the outside world mothers, fathers, girlfriends, boyfriends.It reads almost a little blandly I suppose you could say it s of a character study and less about the plot But then I couldn t say that it was very successful, because I didn t fee [...]

    6. Fiction This is the story of Bobby and Jonathan best friends, almost brothers, almost in love how they grow up together, how they grow apart, how they meet Clare, and how they all try to make a home together It sounds cozy I love self made families but this is an exceedingly lonely book No one s able to make any lasting connections and everyone s alone in one way or another It s sad, but written so well Cunningham has an easy way with language his prose is simple and honest, with wonderful spots [...]

    7. A couple of jumbled thoughtsI found this to be quite an introspective character focused novel It s plot is sort used as a backdrop to the characters working through their insecurities about relationships, loneliness, and the expectations they have about their life Not a lot happens plot wise really, it s about what is going on within the heads of the characters Sometimes I was completely enthralled with them The first half is especially engaging with the dynamic between the boys and Johnathan s [...]

    8. I think I m experiencing Cunningham Fatigue I ve read four of his novels in the last two years and they are starting to run together He does seem to work with very similar themes in his works, something I actually like about him This novel reminds me a lot of his most recent novel, The Snow Queen, another story about a trio, quartet if you want to count Alice in this novel, and Liz in the other novel Liz is very similar to Clare, I should add It feels like Cunningham uses his novels to work thro [...]

    9. The story of a relationship between two childhood friends and a woman who enters their lives in adulthood, A Home at the End of the World is difficult to summarize because its plot is wide, rambling, and only half the point Meandering from the childhood deaths that leave Bobby bereft, distant, and desperate for connection, to Jonathan s burgeoning sexuality and his fixation on Bobby, to the entrance of world weary Clare and the fragile three way relationship that forms on the basis of the shared [...]

    10. Well there are a couple of really good lines in this book, but they are almost invariably followed by something truly horrible and trite, expanding upon the theme and beating it into your head So the prose is overwritten and labored and sometimes mannered and affected , but as a reader of Victorian literature, I could probably forgive that Hardy has committed greater sins, and I have read and enjoyed those sins as committed by by lesser writers than Hardy but the problem with A Home at the End o [...]

    14. a me di questo libro piaciuta solo la colonna sonora I personaggi girano attorno al loro ombelico, convinti che sia al centro del mondo , incapaci di crescere, e l unico con un po di attenzione verso gli altri, che sa farsi carico del dolore altrui, ovvero Bobby, guardato con affettuosa sufficienza, come fosse l adorato cane di casa.

    15. A Home at the End of the World was my first Cunningham s book and I can already say that it s not going to be the last one The book is evolving slowly, and my reading was slowed down even , because I was traveling while I was reading it I am glad about it, as it seemed to require time to think it over and digest it The first thing that comes to mind when I think about A Home at the End of the World is that it is an awkward book It is awkward, because it is too real, too intimate, too raw It does [...]

    16. I wish we could do half stars I would like to give this book 2.5 stars to rate it a C.I really wanted to like it than I did however, I felt there was not enough internal distinction among the characters to make the shifting viewpoints work Each person s narrative voice sounded like all the others, resulting in homogenous characters that did not seem sufficiently fleshed out.

    17. I really fucking liked this It has lots of my favorite things in a novel New York, suburban malaise, love, the 80s, parenting It is the story of two boys and their families It follows them into their adulthood where they meet the third character, Clare, and fall in love with her The chapters are narrated by a different character, which can be annoying I think Cunningham pulls it off Each time a chapter started I would think oh good this character is really my favorite I loved Alice s chapters ne [...]

    19. Se dovessi definire questo romanzo con una sola parola, userei inevitabilmente il termine strano.Strani sono i personaggi, tanto per cominciare due gay poco convinti ed una donna divorziata che accetta un manage a trois con loro Strana la vicenda, strani sono i ragionamenti dei personaggi, con il loro contraddirsi continuamente, partire, fuggire, tornare, fuggire di nuovo E strana la via che scelgono, tutti e tre, per il loro futuro Strani sono agli occhi della gente normale , perch loro sono tu [...]

    20. A really amazing book about human connections of all kinds, a unique family epic and about all types of love The people were so well written that they could be totally 3 dimensional, where the can irritate you and make you love them I loved the end But I wanted about Alice and Bobby Lastly, I know it s my mantra but it was too long, or too short, in the wrong places.

    21. I love New York stories, I love the 80s The plot is captivating, and for someone coming from Eastern Europe, such a story taking place while they grew up, in a different part of the world, of course seems pretty unbelievable.

    22. I started out enjoying the book very much But somewhere along the line, I stopped recognizing motivations of the characters They re supposed to be unconventional, but I couldn t figure out why they were so There was something opaque about each of the main trio Jon, Bobby Clare Bobby, to begin with seems a very observant young person He says of his father buying a Cadillac, that he was as skeptical as his older brother was thrilled If his father was the kind of person who bought a car on a street [...]

    23. A Home at the End of The Worldis a love story A convoluted, unbalanced, discombobulated love story, but a love story nonetheless.Jonathan meets Bobby in the eighth grade, and to call what forms between them a simple friendship would be to apply a cheap misnomer They bond over weed, music, angst and rebellion They discover physical sex together They become defined by the other, a pair united by some commensal inner turmoil that seems incapable to define And then they graduate high school, and wha [...]

    24. A una prima parte accattivante ne segue una dove la storia ristagna per poi riprendersi un po nella conclusione una lettura che mi sono trascinato per quasi tutto novembre, vuoi per gli impegni, vuoi perch la parte centrale mi stava deprimendo come poche cose al mondo E poi c tutto un discorso sullo stile, discorso che nascer da una specie di deformazione professionale e che non interesser a nessuno, ma che faccio lo stesso 1 Ogni volta che ci sono pi punti di vista e la storia scritta in prima [...]

    25. One of my favorite movies from the new millennium has been the 2002 film The Hours starring Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Ed Harris, Allison Janney and John C Reilly While I have not as yet read the 1999 Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Michael Cunningham upon which it was based I have seen the film twice and loved it both times In the event that you have neither read the book nor seen the movie the plot centers around three different stories each taking place in a different era, 1 [...]

    26. I listened to most of this on our way to Orangeville to put my father s ashes into a cubby thing tm , and most of the ride back The fact that the gay character has to decide what to do with his father s ashes was a bit of an ironic twist to our selection, but otherwise, this was what I d call a character study novel, in that the plot itself doesn t really go anywhere.Basically, you follow the lives of four people, Jonathan the gay fellow , his mother Alison a New Orleans girl who married a fairl [...]

    27. This is the story of four people who call themselves family, set in late 1970 early 1980 Cleveland, NYC, and Phoenix.Bobby, childhood friends with Jonathan, has lost his immediate family brother, mother, and father within a very short time Jonathan, emotionally detached and searching for that click into the presentAlice, Jonathan s mother, married and started a family for the simple fact that there really was no reason not to.And Clare, hippie wanna be Woodstock goer, failed in an earlier marria [...]

    28. Most humans need family, but that family needn t be a grouping of parents and cbildren Humans need love as well, but it need not be sexual Most humans want sex as well, heterosexual, homosexual or bisexual, but sex is apart from love.Cunningham has written an elegant and heartbreaking novel of both the breakup of family and the formation of a new one, new in all its meanings The new family is bonded by love, each love different from the other There are parental love, children s love, love betwee [...]

    29. What I like about Michael Cunningham s books is that they are so different Even though they deal with the same or at least similar themes each book is a unique read.A Home at the End of the World is sometimes disgusting but beautiful story about love, friendship and looking for a place to belong Throughout the story we follow lives of our four main characters Each of them has a unique set of issues that he or she tries to overcome.It s hard to write about this book and not spoil anything so I m [...]
