    A Novel of Short StoriesAdam Thorpe s first novel Ulverton comprises twelve chapters Each of these chapters is a short story set in the fictional English town of Ulverton Ordered chronologically these stories span the last three and a half centuries of English history It is the common factors of geographical location and shared historical events that bi

    Stylistically stunning and very clever I cannot believe this didn t getprizes when it came out A kind of Akenfield rural documentary meets Cloud Atlas shifting eras, narrators and connections meets polemic Firstly, it s brilliant pastiche conveying the language, the reimagined dialect and the medium of the different eras For doing this so well even read

    When this is good it s very good, when it s bad it s unreadable, literally if you re reading it on a kindle as the last chapter is in tiny, tiny print and I couldn t adjust it Also some chapters are written in very heavy dialect and frankly I just skipped those chapters with a feeling that life is too short, what a waste of money, should have borrowed it

    I love, love, love this book The village of Ulverton is visited across centuries as the reader hears the stories of various of its inhabitants At first these stories seem random, but asis learnedis understood, and they all weave in together to form a whole the history and meaning of the village through its heterogeneous people.There is something of Alan Ga

    Did not make it past page 160 The story could not hold my attention This only happens to me once every few years, but so many books, so little time..

    Ok so the good things about this novel I love the sense of the change of time over the centuries in one small village like the changing of the seasons I love how as you go through the centuries the language in the book changes with each new decade though I found the last part of the book incredibly irritating and just plain batty also I couldn t actually read

    2.5 really Although some of the individual passages were well written, I really didn t enjoy this at all The sections with local dialect were just too challenging to read for very little return to the reader I like the premise of the book, with the same place featuring through time from 17oo s until the present day, but found it focusedon the people rather than

    This is the first book that I remember not finishing.Honestly, I ve not read such self aggrandising, pretentious twattery in my life and I had to do a literary fiction module full of angsty white middle aged authors projecting onto their characters at uni
