mobi ó The Green Man ☆ Kingsley Amis

The Green Man Î Dicate his sanity Allington strives to uncover the key to Underhill's satanic powers All the while the skeletons in the cupboard of Allington's own domestic affairs rattle to get out to For whatever reason Kingsley Amis and I seem to genuinely click At least I think so based upon the level of enjoyment I got from this unusual little book There is a genuine uality to his literary voice which when combined with his certain sense of humour very much reminds me of Kurt Vonnegut who I love I am a sucker for ghost stories but this is a ghost story with many differences The feel is entirely uniue as is the imagery I can't wait to get my hands on from this fantastic author mobi ó The Green Man ☆ Kingsley Amis

Kingsley Amis ☆ The Green Man reader

Kingsley Amis ☆ The Green Man reader Exual deviancy rumoured to have killed his wife However the landlord Maurice Allington is the sole witness to the renaissance of the malevolent Underhill Led by an anxious desire to vin There are some great things about this book The main character is strangely likeable for a disconnected alcoholic womanizing inn owner He goes through the motions of his life as things fall apart around him and he realizes that the ghost of an evil old wizard is trying to use him to come back to life Nobody uite believes him but he goes about trying to stop the ghost in between doing his daily chores trying to set up a three way with some hot friend of his and dealing with all the little hassles of life and some personal tragediesI'm sure it doesn't sound like it but the book is freuently very funny in a very dry way Some of the characters are hysterical there's a young postmodern Anglican parson in particular who always got me laughingI thought the last 40 or so pages were the best part of the bookI wouldn't necessarily recommend this as a read to everyone but if dry hud literature about a middle aged British innkeeper in a life spiral who tries to exorcise an evil ghost sounds like your thing go for it The character study alone is masterful The sex in the book feels very 60s but has some good variation in tone And the supernatural elements especially at the end offer a great dimension on top of everything else
