    Epub Douglas Kennedy   The Pursuit of Happiness Kindle ´ The Pursuit eBook pursuit pdf, happiness epub, The Pursuit mobile, The Pursuit of Happiness Epub45 starsBefore reading The Pursuit of Happiness I had almost no idea about the American political landscape of the 1950's and though I may have heard of McCarthyism I certainly couldn't have said what it was Though this theme was prevalent in Douglas Kennedy's novel I wouldn't describe it as a political novel At its core it was a tragic love story written in a most compelling manner and I was fabulously impressed by this reading experienceThe story opens in 2001 at Kate's mothers funeral Naturally she's not happy on this day but she struck me as a generally unhappy character As a single mother overworked with a strained relationship with her ex husband and her brother she was described as having a real talent for unhappiness So when approached by a mysterious stranger at the funeral it was hardly surprising that Kate was uninterested even angry at what this stranger Sara had to sayThe vast majority of the st

    Epub Douglas Kennedy   The Pursuit of Happiness Kindle ´ The Pursuit eBook pursuit pdf, happiness epub, The Pursuit mobile, The Pursuit of Happiness EpubThe story starts with Kate at her mother’s funeral and a stranger who appears at the funeral Then it goes back to tell is who this woman is why she came to the funeral and what her interest is in Kate I liked the way the story went back to fill in the background and history of Sara Smythe and Jack Malone This is a story of choices and conseuences that have far reaching effects on others The characters are complex and well portrayed Even if I didn’t agree with their choices it was easy to understand how they arrived at them The writer has a good understanding of what motivates people and the way they will react to events Three uotes that particularly appealed to me and in a way sum up the novel for me are‘I think that is the hardest thing about bereavement – coming to terms with what might have been if only you’d been able to get it right’‘Forgiven

    Epub Douglas Kennedy   The Pursuit of Happiness Kindle ´ The Pursuit eBook pursuit pdf, happiness epub, The Pursuit mobile, The Pursuit of Happiness EpubAwful preppy girl meets awful smug guy falls in love then spends the rest of the novel reflecting on it over coffee It's an 'epic' so expect awful kids to grow up into awful people too There is a section where the nightmare of Kate's domestic situation is played out as Gothic melodrama in a tiny village under the watchful eye of the mother in law from hell which is fantastic; as is the part exposing the pomposity and callousness of the HUAC After that it's all downhillWe are constantly told how funny the three central characters are but believe me they hide it well My biggest beef though is with Kate she writes one short story one and is compared to Hemingway; people remember it for years she even lands an internationally read column on the back of it If she could only have mustered up the energy to write one or maybe just a poem they would have given her a Pulitzer but she was too
