Summary King: A Street Story John Berger ☆ 5 Free read Summary ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ John Berger Mighty Animals are not sentimental and neither is Berger His human characters are irrevocably damaged their lives verge on the unbearable and their attempts to create family and community at the edges of society are eventually thwarted There can be no happy ending to this street story but Berger is after something bigger than making his readers feel good Instead he shines a spotlight on a world we would prefer to ignore using the love that Vica Vico and King feel for each other to illuminate a humanity that is all too often overlooked King is not an easy book to read but it is impossible to forget Alix Wilb.

Summary King: A Street Story John Berger ☆ 5 Free read Summary ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ John Berger Rity among the homeless and their dog King It is King who narrates this day in the life narrative and Berger has endowed him with the ability to understand and be understood Lying beside the chestnut brazier something came to me between the ears the world is so bad God has to exist I asked Vico what he thought 'Most people' he said uickly 'would draw the opposite conclusion' What makes King such a singular creation is that despite his philosophical bent and communicative skills there is nothing anthropomorphic about him He thinks behaves and reacts like a dog albeit a dog who ponders the existence of the Al. Rating this book caused me a lot of internal conflict And now here it is with its not so fancy two star rating and you re probably wondering Well Charlie you obviously weren t impressed so why the conflictMy explanation is thisBerger is an amazing writer Some of the lines in this book are so beautifully written that I wish I d kept King at its original three star rating But the problem is that when all was said and done the uality of the writing didn t knock me over than the characters disinterested me JB gives us a handful of vagrants and tells us of their life from the perspective of a dog Well I m a cat person so shame on me and shame on Berger for not catering to that side of me Additionally we re given these characters who are sad and forgotten by society and the truth is that I WANT to want to care about them and I don t The majority of the characters are mentioned in the first chapter and that not really handled again until the end King is dog albeit a gracefully spoken and intelligent dog but therein lies the problem by being a dog he in fact lacks humanity And his owners Vico and Vica are what are they Forgettable Yes they re homeless Yes that s a shame But give me something to grasp here other than a throw away reference to not having had fire insurance and one of the character s real names from his past life Yes the characters are insightful and well spoken Yes if I was rating this book based on JB s writing alone I d probably give it a three maybe a four the guy s got a knack But in the end when I m left feeling like the book I ve just read was an unentertaining mess of characters I didn t care for in a situation I couldn t and hopefully never will have to relate to this book has earned two stars no no less
