THE LESSER BOEHEMIANS BY Eimear McBride—

LESSER BOHEMIANS is one messed up book which makes for a great book! . I thoroughly enjoyed when the author truly got into telling stories inside the main story of an 18 year old Irish girl living on her own, going to school for acting and going out and doing what young adults do. They go out get drunk, find someone to have sex with and have major sex in strange places. The descriptions of the sexual liaisons, and of Eily meeting her much older boyfriend who has major life problems of his own, take on a life of their own.

MESSED UP STORY ABOUT MESSED UP GIRL MADE FOR GREAT BOOK!

Eimear McBride writes Bohemians in the weirdest way ever. There aren’t any chapters. There aren’t any breaks, pictures, paragraphs, mostly one long page after another of story telling. It takes some getting used to. When McBride breaks from the continual bar hopping, drinking, wandering through the streets of London, and truly gets into storytelling, then Lesser Bohemians takes on a strong life-force of its own. It becomes a great book to read.

McBride writes Lesser bohemians from the perspective of Eily, as if we are witnessing what is happening through the main character’s eyes. McBride describes everything in this format. Sentences are mixed up, some long, some just a word. Words are misplaced. I read one review where the person said the book was written in prose. No it is not! It is written in a storytelling strange way where everything that is happening, the character’s feelings, her everything come out. It makes for interesting reading , actually. When Eily loses her virginity it is all described. When Eily gets drunk and is raped it is described. Eily’s older boyfriend describes his childhood and how he was abused by his mother.

I enjoyed the Lesser Bohemians, but it was most definitely a weird, non traditional book. Momzinga.com.
Oh, and I have to add, read The Lesser Bohemians very fast to get what is going on. Don’t take your time with it, read fast, then you get what is going on.
