    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookI don’t care for addiction fiction I pretty much hated this book Repetitive Nothing particularly new There are indeed some good lines and some humor The ending is interesting in what it doesn’t offer The misogyny is so thick it’s almost funny Almost People are terrible and it’s great when they are free to be terrible in fiction s

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookI have a lot in common with Nico Walker author of the recently released debut novel Cherry We both partied too hard and failed out of college in the early 2000’s both then enlisting in the wartime army at twenty years old After basic training we were both stationed at Fort Hood Texas We didn’t know each other but it is possible we rubbed shoulders in one of the nightclubs in Killeen or at the 24 hour gas station near the entrance of post where you could buy liquor and smokes at any hour of the day or night We would have appeared as two pissed off looking kids sunburned in desert camo waiting in line after work to buy some relief from boredom and toil No one in a position to make such judgments would have pegged us as budding literary novelistsIt would have been in 2005 that our p

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookThese sentences come at you like rapid fire and it took several pages for me to fall into the cadence This is a story of love war drug addiction and crime A fictionalized account of the author’s life written while in prison it is deeply depressing although not without flashes of humor The author’s back story makes me wonder how he survived to write this novel Walker took part in over 250 missions as a combat medic and is highly decorated The publicist has a lot to work with hereThe war scenes are gruesome and the agonizing PTSD inevitable The unnamed main character is unable to find his footing as a civilian and turns to drugs to ease his anguish The life of a drug addict is a never ending cycle of scrounging for money buying drugs administering drugs rinse and repeat Robbing banks became a way of procuring money as well as placing hims

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookNot bad It's written well enough and the story is compelling but yeesh what a groveling complaining myopic narrator Let's call a spade a spade here this is an autobiography with the names changed This is Nico Walker's story And although it is well told it is a dismal story of decline that is hard to empathize with In a way it's existential Like Meursault from The Stranger our self loathing protagonist doesn't really care about anything or anybody but himself and even then not so much Why try? Why be loyal? Why be courageous or caring or considerate? Having not found satisfying answers to these questions Nico decides to take the path of least resistance to gratification without regard to the wellbeing of any other humanOverall I liked it It was like a nonfiction version of Catch 22 We live in an absurd world and Mr Walker captures that well albeit with a pretty bad attitude

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookNico Walker isn't your typical novelist For one he wrote his debut novel Cherry in prison Not only that but he remains in prison to this day In his expletive ridden Hunter S Thompson esque Ernest Hemingway ish autobiographical novel he tells us the story of how he got there In this starkly honest middle American romp Walker truly impresses with his ability to put words to the images of his memory The prose is not sophisticated flowery or complex—it's better than all that Reading this book fee

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookNico Walker is currently serving time in prison for bank robbery his debut novel Cherry is essentially his fictionalized autobiography in which the unnamed narrator dispassionately recounts dropping out of college enlisting in the army shipping out to Iraq serving as an army medic returning home and developing PTSD as well as an opioid addiction Cherry is a deeply uncomfortable book to read on just about every level The war scenes and depictions of drug abuse are graphic the language is relentlessly profane the narrator's pervasive misogyny goes unchallenged This is not a book about redemption or remorse or lessons learned or new beginnings it's about waste and abuse and mutually destructive relationships and squandered potential This narrator hits rock bottom so many times that 'rock bottom' loses all meaning and as he isn't guided by any kind of recog

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBookThis debut novel is advertised as a work of fiction but it is clearly at least partly autobiographical it's pretty hard to find out how big the overlap between the unnamed narrator and the author is though as Nico Walker is still in jail serving an eleven year sentence for bank robbery That's also where he wrote this novel about a guy who dropped out of college joined the army served as a medic in Iraq consequently suffered from severe PTSD self medicated with heroin and short of money and with an expensive addiction to support became a bank robber all of this happened to Nico Walker himself The fact that the protagonist is also the narrator gives it an even memoir ish feel Long before Walker wrote the book some media outlets reported on the author's life story and it's very interesting to read especially Scott Johnson's article from 2013 because readers of Cherry will recognize par

    Hardcover Ò Cherry eBook ï cherry epub, Cherry eBook 35 An incredibly tough read and also near impossible for me to write a review of because it feels akin to reviewing someones life This is auto fiction and as such I am fighting my nature to want to untangle the fact from the fiction but that way lies madnessIf there is one reason to pick up this novel then it is for the sections set in Iraq Walker gives
