BEST BOOK IN THE WORLD ITbook in the world It a humourous take on writing but also on the people involved in the world of a book from editors and critics to librarians and book owners The plot is face paced and has some unexpected twists along the way Overall it s an enjoyable well thought out read It was likable even funny at uite a few places eg Lenny the rocker who has Tourette syndrome the customized computer that senses if you re Shakespeare drunk and shutsown etc but the writing style is obviously underdeveloped I also read it in Hungarian translation which might have contributed to the style problems The ending is completely unnecessary it makes you lose all the sympathy you have built up for the main characters and all respect for the writer really The twist turns out to be an overused tiresome trope and the reader feels let BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) downAt the end it always comesown to whether you ve liked a book enough to be willing to read from the writer In this case I think I will try other Scandinavian authors I received my copy from the publisher through NudgeLet s start this review at the very beginning with a look at the title It is an incredibly smart title for a book of course I Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy dare any reader to stumble upon this book somewhere and not take a closer look at it out of pure curiosity How could you possibly not investigate a book with a title like this A title like The Best Book in the World warrants a closer look at the blurb at the very least And what makes this title extra clever is that the labeloes Caveman Alien’s Riddle (Caveman Aliens, describe the contents exactly This is a book about the best book in the worldDuring a literary festival two authors getrunk together One is the young popular successful and charming poet Eddie X The other Titus Jensen is older He has a successful career as an author of literary fiction behind him and now spends his time mostly Teaching white South African literature in high school drunk reading outrageous passages from obscure books at festivals Titus is well on his way to becoming a washed out has been During theirrunken conversation Titus comes up with the idea of writing a genre transcending book A single book that is all the other books at the same time Titus Jensen knows that The Best Book in the World is his last chance If he can t write it he ll be an alcoholic has been for the rest of his life If he can t sober up now he ll never be a serious writer again but be condemned to making a fool of himself at festivals foreverDespite this idea having sprung from a very intoxicated mind Titus enlists his publishers assistance and proceeds on a very strict writing regime His life style is changed alcohol banned and his writing monitored And much to everybody surprise Titus makes great progress with his project about an overweight and charismatic A Wish Your Heart Makes detective chief inspector who has cracked an important slimming code and will change the world s view of leadership On top of that he has a polished serial killer a frightfully tasty pizza and the best artist in the world throughout the ages his soul mate Salvador Dali But as Titus writing goes from strength to strength he can t help worrying about Eddie X He told the young poet about his idea and he is convinced that Eddie is not only working on a similar project but also trying to get his hands on Titus work in progress And that is a very worrying prospect because The best book in the world can give eternal life But only to one of them The race is onIn many ways this is a very clever book In order to write a book about an author who tries to write a book that encompasses several if not all genres Peter Stjernstr m had to write a book that covers severalifferent genres So while we have a fascinating and at times very funny novel to enjoy here we also get a lot of non fictional information about pizza art Sweden and writing among other topics And for the most part the balance between story line and oth. N A radical poet and regular on the festival circuit he can't help thinking there has to be to life for a talented good looking man like himself One night after a successful event Titus reads from The Diseases of Swedish Monarchs and Eddie X waxes lyrical to the thrashing tones of metal band The Tourettes the unlikely pair get horribly runk together and hatch a plan to achieve worldwide recognition The answer is to write the best book in the world a book. Er information is very well struck and fits the story
Perfectly The One Thing I Was Less Happy About WasThe one thing I was less happy about was final part of the book It is only a few pages long but manages to put everything that has gone before on its head I can t help feeling that Stjernstr m was trying to be a bit too clever there and am convinced that this book would have been as good if not better if that last part had been left outThose last few pages not withstanding this was a very enjoyable and anything #But Predictable Read And While A Book #predictable read And while a book holds so many ifferent facets might sound like hard work for the reader this is in fact a surprisingly easy to read story The narrative flows nicely factual insertions never take the pace out of the story and although there is an awful lot going on there isn t a Loves Abuse Warrior Camp dull moment in this book the story line is easy to follow until you get to those last few pages There is a lot to be found in this book for those who pay attention with a recipe for the perfect pizza as one of the highlights The writeroesn t shy away from kicking a few hobby horses while he s at it The publishing industry is given a closer look and a not too subtle Contemporary African literature dig at Paulo Coelho may well offend some of his numerous fans And I can t help wondering with a big grin on my face how many authors like Titus in this book have wished they could put something like the following in their foreword and now Iemand of you you pathetic clown of a reviewer that you read this magnificent book with the most open attitude that your withered and poisoned brain is capable of May you burn in hell if you are incapable of appreciating the magnificence of this innovative work of literature This may not be the best book in the world it 120 Content Strategies for English Language Learners definitely is a very original and enjoyable way to spend a few of your reading hours I received this book via a Goodreads giveawayThere were several things I liked about this book The idea behind the plot is intriguing two authors competing to write a book that will top the bestseller lists in every category thereby becoming the writer of the best book in the world It s also got plenty of irreverent and satirical observations about modern life and I enjoyed theescriptions of Stockholm and Swedish life and culture The first half of the book felt rather slow even though there was clearly meant to be a sense of urgency in what Titus was Making Me Crazy (Multicultural Romance Series: NHL Billionaire Meets African American Beauty Book 1) doing but I m glad I kept reading as itefinitely improves in pace and plot as it goes onHowever there were a few things about this book which niggled me Although I liked Titus the characters felt under Alt 38 Environmental Transformations developed Astra and Evitaon t really Academic Skills develop beyond being pretty publishing types It is never made clear how Titus ended up as a washed out alcoholic and the change in Eddie X s character towards the end of the book feels both unexpected and unexplained I found the final chapter thoroughly confusing it felt unnecessary and for me the penultimate chapter would have made a satisfying ending In short I liked this book but Iidn t love it The second half of the book is much better than the first and overall it s enjoyable if at times a little silly I Before the Door Closes didn t think this would be so bad But it is written in present tense which to me means it starts off as a maximum book I reallyon t get it why authors use present tense it only fits a few special cases as any editor knows so if PS knows editors so much surely he knows at least one good one who could have told him soI was reading this on an excursion right while we were taking a 20 minutes Action Inquiry: The Secret of Timely and Transforming Leadership drive to the country and thenid a walk And i finished it I remember I was on page 52 when I wanted to hurl it over the fence of the house we were walking by it hurt it was so not for present tense I We Are Each Others Harvest didn t throw it away because 1 I would have had no other book left with me 2 it was a present from my husband who was with meAnd then it just never got exciting or interesting Wanting to write the BBitW by mixing genres together Nope No effing way as any editor would tell you Target audience must be laser sharp targetedThe only good twist was the last few pages though I stillon t get it why strong women would want to make out with female ish colourful haired boys Good but not great because it They Left Great Marks on Me drags in the middle The idea is clever and the execution predictable my hunches about the plot twists were correct I enjoyed it butidn t love it. So amazing that it will end up on all the bestseller lists in every category imaginable thriller self help cooking business ieting a book that combines everything in one But there can only be one such book and as the alcohol induced haze clears both men realize they are not willing to share the limelight Hilariously uirky and witty this novel will take readers on a meandering race to the finish line throwing plenty of satirical punches along the way. Is it possible to write a book that hits the bestseller charts in every category That s the idea washed up author Titus Jensen and radical poet Eddie X come up with whilst than a little runk In the cold light of Talking About Trees day Titus takes the idea to his editor behind Eddie s back The race is on to write the best book in the worldbut is Titus really the man too itThe breathalyser laptop had me laughing out loud for real I would say read this book just for those bits genius I loved Astra his editor She wasn t convinced Titus
Could Cope But She Wanted The Bookcope but she wanted The Book gave him a good Alien Contact dose of tough love I think if you follow any number of publishers andor authors there s plenty in this satire to amuse There are many stories about writers but probably none that come this close to the truth Itoes make me wonder how many books start off as The Rules of Engagement for Overcoming Your Past drunken ideasThe reading out from old booksidn t uite work I can imagine it being entertaining in person but in the book it is just like a passage from a random book This caused the pace to rag in places although I think it could work well in audio format with the right narrator There were other segments that were potentially interesting such as a lesson in Dali if you re interested in Dali But again it etracts a little from the plot I suppose it s be trying to mirror its fictional counterpart be as many genres as possible by sneaking in art history and poetry and whatever else I Hair Raising: Beauty, Culture, and African American Women did like the cookery element where he s trying to work out the four season pizza though and the thriller bits work wellThe title in itself will have people picking up the book to find out It may not be the best book in the world but it s certainly an interesting read for anyone interested in booksReview copy provided by publisher This book iseliciously Say It Plain A Century of Great African American Speeches different it is filled with Swedish humour and it s clever I read the last chapter and may have called the author a crafty swine out loud To punish him because I loved Titus so I am withholding one star When and if I forgive him I will give it him back He can win me over by writing books Soon The Best Book in The World may not live up to its name but it is fun silly and lighthearted Unfortunately it s the ending that lets itown which is the reason for this book receiving 3 starsYou can see my full review on my blog here I m not a freuent literary fiction reader but when I o read lit fic I make sure it s like The Best Book in the World readable accessible but meaty in all the right placesThe premise is simple Two authors one young and successful one old and regressive talk about the book of all books A book that would be a best seller in every category from self help to thriller Not wanting to share the fame they both set out to write the Best Book in the WorldOn the surface the book is an enjoyable romp through bizarre situations and crazy characters including a rock band filled with people suffering from Tourette s including the singer and a therapist that tried all of his alternative methods on himself first Narratively speaking The Best Book in the World is very interesting and layered I loved the frame within a frame within a frame even though I get that it might get confusing When reading a literary book I always make sure to keep an eye out for narrative techniues and small hints that will reveal what is really going on Even though I was reading so attentively I still thought the final chapter the main source of confusion could have been a bit longer The characters were great exactly like I want them I love reading about eccentric and weird people and the characters in The Best Book in the World certainly fit the bill They might not necessarily all be three imensional but their truthful ticks and habits made up for that The Best Book in the World is a translated work and sometimes translated works have stocky or unnatural prose I idn t notice any unnatural turns of phrase in the book and I thought Mr Stjernstr m s language translated beautifully I also uite appreciated that all the Stockholm neighbourhoods were kept in their Swedish name I loved the Stockholm setting I ve barely read any Scandinavian books and I thought it was great to see Stockholm through a native s eyes It might not be the best book in the world but The Best Book in the World is a great book that I very much enjoyed reading Recommended for lighter literary Who will win the race to write the best book in the world and to what unimaginable lengths will they go to get there first A hilarious tale of authorly competitionTitus Jensen is middle aged has a fondness for alcohol and makes ends meet by giving public readings from obscure books at festivals across Sweden He can't help thinking there has to be to life for an author of his uality Eddie X is hip a hit with the ladies and loves being the center of attentio. .
