review Spring author David Szalay 103 ô ❰Read❯ ➭ Spring Author David Szalay – The US debut of leading UK author David Szalay named one of The Daily Telegraph's twenty best British novelists under fortyJames is a man with a checkered past—sporadic entrepreneur one time film pr The US debut of leading UKRs of depth to the hesitations missteps and tensions as James tries to win Katherine James's other pursuit is money and Spring follows his investments and schemes from a half share in a thoroughbred to a suit and tie day job he's taken to pay the bills Spring is a sharply tuned novel so nuanced and precise in its psychology that it establishes Szalay as a major talent. One of the 2013 Granta best young British novelists I'd never heard of him so decided to try this his most recent novel Hmm Just ok The two main characters engaged in a doomed love affair at the center of the book are not terribly illuminated and the dialogue I found really immature Here are two people in their thirties with lots of life experience marriages career changes far flung travel and yet they seem unable to communicate with each other Not in a profound difference of personalitychemistry mismatch no that would be interesting but its page after page of 'do you want to meet up tomorrow' 'do you want to' 'what do you think' 'no what do you think' 'I'm not sure call me later' Frustrating like listening in to a teenage cell phone call

I gave up with 100 pages to go Our main narrator is a sad sap who you just wish would make a decent decision I didn't want to spend time with him and I couldn't see why Katherine didn't cut him loose The point of view is totally unbalanced and what made me finally throw in the towel was when the POV shifted 160 some pages in to a character we'd never even met before

Around two thirds of this was very good astute and beautifully observed descriptions of the relationship between two flawed people in London very saddening and slightly frustrating at times but with merit and aspects that will resonate with other readers as it did with myself The miserable nature did leave me a little dissatisfied but it was an involving and interesting story in that sense I found the remainder poorly delineated flashbacks nostalgia changes in POV and time irritating I got nothing from descriptions of people with money than sense wasting their and my time on flights of fancy and get rich uick schemes I cared little for too much of this shirt novel as a conseuence sharp contrast with the ordinary realism of a man and a woman not communicating with each other and struggling to find a balance between fun and contentment Oh and the author over used the word ‘evanescence’ which jarred
