    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFBookended between the ivory tower academic solitude of Stoner and the desperate plight of the forgotten poor of Mumbai in A Fine Balance I have discovered another kind of loneliness between the pages of James Leo Herlihy It is the loneliness of a Forest Gump unrelieved by the sort saccharine fairytale happy endings that pulled this particular movie down for me Instead of a box of chocolates Life has given Joe Buck only sour lemons One night he dreamed a dream that would become recurrent a dream of an endless chain of people marching across the side of the world From his vantage point in some chill and dark and silent corner he could see them coming up from over the eastern horizon all joined at the bellybutton by a golden rope of light and walking to a rousing march beat an

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFThis was hard to read Really hard Authors like Cormac McCarthy seem to want to sink into and wallow in depressing and disheartening; Herlihy was just handing me a world and saying here here is how it is and something about that was cutting me on every single page I actually took a break from this book for a day or two because I wasn't ready to be brought back into Joe Buck's mindHerlihy demonstrated a great ability to write compact straightfoward prose I was amazed by the way he showed me Joe Buck's helplessness and confusion without suggesting I look down on him or pity him It's obvious that Joe is not intelligent but Herlihy doesn't say he's dumb or even show him doing stupid things he just gives us a character that's unable to process the world to make contact with anything realHaving seen the movie which is remarkably faithful to the book I knew what was coming at the end but as always the book contained so much I wanted to stop reading I wanted to escape th

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFThe 1969 film version of Midnight Cowboy is an absolute classic one of my favourite films ever so I approached James Leo Herlihy's original story with a little trepidation However his novel made me smile feel for the characters right from the opening paragraph when Joe Buck walks out of a shop wearing his new bootsThe prose is wonderful

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFThere was no way I could relate or even care about the tale of a naïve guy in the 1960s with rose colored dreams of taking New York City by storm as a male prostitute I mean those aren't shoes I walk in or have even come close to walking by Yet James Leo Herlihy makes me walk in them makes me become involved as after being sucked into Joe Buck’s lonely seedy and reckless world meeting the depressing little lump that is Rico “Ratso” Rizzo thrown about the underworld of New York’s shivering and starving nights and then being released from all of that confusion and soil with a hard shove out the door by novel’s end I was nodding my head I got it I understood I formed compassion and in a lot of ways I related I got it all completely and now I’m left feeling numb and consumed by this classic tale of friendship hard lessons and isolationThis is an extremely H E A V Y story Sorry for the caps but it has to be emphasized that this is

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFI have never seen the film of 'Midnight Cowboy' and I was happy that I had not seen the film when I started reading the book I could see the characters as I would see them as opposed to two actors on a screen 'Midnight Cowboy' is the story of two very different but ultimately lonely men who become to depend on each other both Joe and Rizzo grew up in families where they were forgotten so they are both looking for something Joe for someone to love and someone to love him Rizzo to be accepted he has always survived on his wits and shows Joe all the tricks of the trade and Joe shows Rizzo friendship and compassion The book is also about a ever changing America and what the America dream is for both characters a sad book in so many ways but also funny at times especially the b

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFMidnight Cowboy is one of those books that has not profited from the reputation of its far better known movie version Almost everyone has seen the great John Schlessinger movie of the sixties but very few have read the source novel also called Midnight Cowboy And what a shame Herlihy’s novel is so beautifully written and executed that you fall into its spell with the first sad story of the Texan loner Joe Buck and his long voyage to the mean streets of New York City Every incident and characterization is perfectly rendered and the reader instantly forgets that he or she is reading a novel That is the highest praise a novel can receive Herlihy’s reputation as one of America’s finest novelists would probably have been better served if the movie had been less successful and people had read the book There’s still time to change all that

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFHaving seen and loved the movie Midnight Cowboy I was curious to read the book on which it was based This is a terrific novel about an amazingly neglected man child trying to find his way in the world The whole first part of the novel was left out of the movie which begins with Joe Buck's arrival in New York City and it is important to make real sense of some of the chara

    MOBI James Leo Herlihy ô Midnight Cowboy PDF/EPUB õ ô midnight pdf, cowboy download, Midnight Cowboy PDFVery interesting read The book was much different in tone than I was expecting I have not seen the movie but knew the bare bones of the plot from various clips of the film I had seen on TV The characters were very relatable the various settings were very well done and I felt it was very well written the author's style did not overwhelm the story
