The PrologueBefore I met all of you wonderful Goodreaders I was at the mercy of my paltry few well read friends for recommendations of new authors and books Derek Crim, childhood friend and fellow bookish enthusiast has offered up some winners Chabon before Kavalier and Clay O Brian s Aubrey Maturin series Kurlansky s non fiction In August of 2006 he gifted me a copy of this Barnes novel Immediately upon completion of its reading it became one of my life important books.The BeginningThis novel i [...]
3.5 Despite a lukewarm entry into this collection, I ended up marvelling, once again, at Barnes s ingenuity, insight and sense of humour And at his prose, which in this collection takes on many different guises from encyclopedic to shifty, from dull mostly in the beginning to dramatic increasingly When I say collection, I mean collection of mostly short stories, some which are bordering on essays and most emphatically not a novel, although the book claims to be one It is even less a novel thanFl [...]
This History turned out to be very different from what my expectations were In fact, it just marginally qualifies as a novel, but then I thought the same about Flaubert s Parrot too, so you might discount the opinion both have been booker shortlists after all It is highly entertaining and the choice of narrator in each fragment is a feat of imagination Barnes obsession with history and its telling comes out in this book too, but this time not as a doubting narrator doggedly working against stack [...]
I read most of this A few chapters I stopped reading half way through because I wasn t enjoying them as much I decided to DNF as this is a book I had to study last year and no longer need to finish it and honestly I don t have any desire to revisit the chapters I stopped partway through.

The history of the world Just voices echoing in the dark images that burn for a few centuries than fade stories, old stories that sometimes seem to overlap strange links, impertinent connections We lie here in our hospital bed of the present what nice clean sheets we get nowadays with the bubble of daily news drip fed into our arm We think we know who we are, though we don t quite know why we re here, or how long we shall be forced to stay And while we fret and writhe in bandaged uncertainty are [...]
I originally assumed, based on its title, that A History of the World in 10 1 2 chapters was actually a history of the world in 10 1 2 chapters I thought it would be a quirky, ultra condensed version of all recorded history And it IS quirky But it s actually a series of history themed short stories.I had it on my wishlist based on the rave reviews from , claiming that the book is pure genius A top review calls it a sardonic, original, and mischievous mind on a tear Too bad it bored me so much.Wi [...]
Ok, the first chapter of the book entitled The Stowaway is one of the most brilliant things i ve ever read If there ever was a intriguing hypothetical account of Noah s Ark, I haven t read it Sadly, the rest of the chapters are not as amazing They are worth reading and interesting They are engaging and inventive But, they still aren t 5 5 stars good I m a tough critic This is a solid 4 star work with some real five star moments Barnes proves he s a creative thinker and able to delve into some i [...]
A History of the World in 10 Chapters was not what I expected, but that happens a lot to me when reading Julian Barnes I like surprises, and enjoyed the book My problem is frequently uncontrolled expectations I had a similar feeling reading Flaubert s Parrot, if I remember correctly since I read both years ago It is highly entertaining and the choice of narrator in each fragment is a feat of imagination Always true with Barnes writings The story grew on me as I read on, at the same time as the n [...]
The Ship of Fools Hieronymous Bosch, c 1500A set of deliciously intertwined stories A wry humor on the nature of existence and history, and how adrift we are on it, and a poke in the eye of dogma and history as a lie We start with Noah s Ark, and dance around human history from there mad astronauts, cannibalism, and the legal defense of woodworms All the pieces matter.
I ve had A History of the World in 10 Chapters on my to read list for almost 15 years, but kept putting it off Now I know why I was dithering Despite the glowing commendations of university professors and English literature elitists, I simply could not warm to the text, clever though it was.A loosely connected series of 10 1 2 short stories, art reviews, re imagined histories, personal ramblings, epistolary travelogues and personal anecdotes, this is the epitome of post modern fiction Julian Bar [...]
Turns out the history of the world revolves around fabulation, woodworms, and love Hard to argue with that I really enjoyed this book, each of the 10 stories self contained, but threaded together, with the 1 2 chapter bringing it all together nicely Witty, educational, philosophical, self deprecating, all things I was really in the mood for while riding a bike across Quebec Favorite lines, and there were many, so just a few now so I can harken back with fondness A painting may be represented as [...]
The book is basically what it says on the cover Ten and a half short chapters, which together cover a lot of ground It is not, as you may be led to believe, a book about history, however.Rather, it is one of those books that somewhat reminds me of those Official Soundtrack albums they keep releasing Music composed for, and inspired by, X The stories are, in fact, all fiction But rather than being history, they cleverly become part of history Or they will do for anyone who reads the book It is al [...]
No, I am apparently in a minority of one but overall I find this book irritating There are some wonderful moments and one chapter in particular, Parenthesis , is a joy from start to finish 24 pages long but other chapters are tediously over written, and at times obscure, with occasional nuggets but little to detain, satisfy or inspire Can appreciate that some ideas are well crafted, and much of the writing flows, but the topics covered are dull and uninteresting and , in my case, rarely capture [...]
Julian Barnes became one of my favs after reading this book.Each chapter reads as a sperate story but connected by a religious theme in each, albeit a skewed and revisionist view of various religions Chapter one starts the book with a hilarious re telling of Noah s ark by a stowawaya woodworm Apparently the unicorn was tossed overboard because Noah became jealous of it s umhorn Chapter 3 revisits the woodworms as they are being tried for heresey after infesting the Bishop s throne, causing the l [...]

An uneven work, although the second and first half of the fifth chapters are brilliant Noah in this telling is a little like the Mel Brooks Moses who was given fifteen whoops ten commandments Here Noah loses most of his flotilla and a good part of the animal kingdom he d have been court martialled if there d been anyone around to sit on the bench And for all his bluster, he felt guilty about losing half the Ark Guilt, immaturity, the constant struggle to hold down a job beyond your capabiliti [...]
I love the story about his wife s neck and hair very romantic I believe the same wife was Martin Amis s agent and when he got a new agent J and M got in a big fight, or something Hence the three stars I m interested in his dust up with Martin Amis than his writing I suppose that s a personal problem.
For whatever reason, I like my fiction to cohere in predictable ways oftentimes when that doesn t happen, I leave a reading experience feeling less than satisfied Chalk it up to being weaned on something other than the so called postmodern novel In several ways, A History of the World in 10 Chapters complicates my expectations It can feel like a series of short stories than a traditional novel however, one cannot avoid the interconnectedness they share The chapters do span the scope of what we [...]

Karl Marx once wrote History repeats itself, first time as tragedy, second as farce And essentially, that is what this book is about From Noah s Ark to modern times, Julian Barnes shows how the same themes and human desires remain constant through time in a collection of short stories It is a clever idea Which is why it is somewhat difficult to admit that this book was such a disappointment.The first chapter is told from the point of view of a stowaway on Noah s Ark which gives you the true acco [...]

I ve had this book on my shelves for somewhere in excess of fifteen years, and am not sure why I failed to read it in all that time The overarching impression of this unusual book essentially eleven short stories with a semblance of common themes Noah s ark, free will, Middle Eastern history, travelling on water, facing the unknown was that it was of very high literary quality and that Barnes writes exceedingly well.There was plenty which will stick with me as thought provoking, plenty which was [...]
This book is a mixed bag and hard to categorize I ll call it a collection of short stories and essays, some of which are interconnected For example, the theme of Noah s Ark applies to at least three of the pieces a story of the trip in which the Ark is a fleet of filthy prison like ships under the dubious leadership of a drunken Noah Then two Irish women go on an expedition to a village on Mt Ararat And an astronaut who walked on the moon abandons science for religion and searches the mountain f [...]
This was my introduction to Julian Barnes work It wasn t what I expected and maybe that s why it disappointed me I was expecting a novel that takes one from point A to Z with consistent thread this is a loosely thematic collection of short stories and essays Had I selected it knowing that, rather than expecting a conventional novel, my opinion of it might be different.Barnes is an excellent writer, no doubt about that, and obviously a deep thinker I m sure he could wax eloquently over just how d [...]
Every book by Julian Barnes manages to amaze me His proficiency with the language and his sheer ingenuity in using it to write about such diverse topics makes him one of the best and most versatile writers ever This book is a magical ride in the mind of the author as he writes connected chapters all of which have their heart and soul in an underlying idea, something that in spirit guides the reader through the marvellous journey that the author paves for us.In 300 odd pages the author manages to [...]
My relationship with this book can be best described as that between a fickle lover and her loyal sweetheart She spends many a day entranced by her quiet man s words, but the Neil Gaiman with its promises of unknown worlds is just too enigmatic to be not explored further By the time she s back after her many escapades in the London Underworld, its Angela Carter with her post apocalyptic love story of sorts that catches her fancy Finally our guilty heroine crawls back into her old familiar bed, w [...]
