    PDF Howard Spring ä PDF O Absalom PDF EPUB ì ä kdglasscouk absalom mobile, O Absalom PDFEPUBMy son gave me this book he found at a used bookstore He knew I'd love it because it had an inscription written it It was dated Christmas 1939 He knows I collect books like that They fascinate me But I'd never read anything by Howard Spring and had no idea what it was about I was hooked from the beginning And just like someone else on here said good or bad you are the product of how you were raised Great book that everyone should read I'd have loved it as a teenager and wish I'd known about it then I'd like to know what I thought about it then compared to now reading it as an adult

    PDF Howard Spring ä PDF O Absalom PDF EPUB ì ä kdglasscouk absalom mobile, O Absalom PDFEPUBI bought it due to the book design catching my eye and then by the blurb on the back I had this book sitting on my shelf for a while until I finally picked it up intending to just read a chunk of it and save the rest for laterI read it all in one sitting so enthralled I was by the straight forward and somewhat soapy saga of two friends who end up raising two sons that for better or for worse end up twisting their father's legacies for themIt can get melodramatic at places and the ending despite being expected was still a kicker I'm glad that I came across the Apollo imprint because I wouldn't have known this book existed Well written and uietly emotional Loved it

    PDF Howard Spring ä PDF O Absalom PDF EPUB ì ä kdglasscouk absalom mobile, O Absalom PDFEPUBI have an old copy of his book that I remember buying in a used book store at the beach about 45 years ago I had read several novels by Howard Spring during the past year and so was interested in this one I remembered liking it a lot and so pulled it out to reread last week Published in 1938 it’s an absorbing story of two families and especially of the love of two fathers for their sons I particularly loved the first half of the book when the narrator William Essex was growing up in Manchester and making his way from an impoverished childhood to becoming a prosperous novelist The second half of the book is a bit too melodramatic for me but always interesting Since the history of the time—it spans the years from 1870 to 1922– plays such an important part of the story I was surprised there was no mention of the flu pandemic of 1918 19
