Summary Ý PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ↠ Roddy Doyle

Oh Play That ThingEd Louis Armstrong Henry finds he cannot escape his pastA highly entertaining cross country epic and a magnificent follow up to A Star Called Henry this prodigious energetic sexy novel is another Roddy Doyle trium. It's no wonder that Doyle's novel and seuel to A Star Called Henry features the father of jazz Louis Armstrong Oh Play That Things finds Doyle in improvisational mode It's his jazz novel about Henry's experiences in America between the warsThe best thing that can be said about Play is that it's a page turner sort of in the Dickensian sense Henry is larger than life and he meets and becomes entangled with many of the key players from the age including Armstrong Al Capone John Ford and othersBut every page while entertaining seems implausible especially when read in relation to Henry The encounters with historical and fictional characters are coincidental and therefore Doyle seems to have no idea where he's going with the plotIn other words there are too many chance encounters to make the plot what there is of one plausibleThis isn't necessarily a drawback Doyle's a great writer and his sentences are fine So the book works as an uncontrolled rollicking readBut if you're the kind of reader who can't suspend disbelief and the suspension of disbelief is VERY hard in this novel Play isn't for youI also have to say that Play stands in stark contrast to Star in that Doyle's knowledge of American history is cursory at best whereas his knowledge of Irish history is amazing Whereas Star shines in historical range Play doesn't reveal anything new about AmericaWord has it that the third installment in the trilogy The Dead Republic is a return to the heights of Star I'm looking forward to it
