(Världens bästa bok) [EBOOK/PDF] ✓ Peter Stjernström


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 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 Is it possible to write a book that hits the title like this A title like The Best Book Is it possible to write a book that hits the 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 drunk In the cold light " come up with whilst than a little drunk In the cold light 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 to do itThe breathalyser laptop had me laughing out loud for real I would say read this book just for those bits enius I loved Astra his editor She wasn t convinced Titus could cope but she wanted The Book and Cezanne and Provence: The Painter in His Culture gave him aood 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 It does make me wonder how many books start off as drunken ideasThe reading out from old books didn 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 drag 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 detracts a little from the plot I suppose it s be trying to mirror its fictional counterpart be as many enres as possible by sneaking in art history and poetry and whatever else I 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 the best book in the world but it s certainly an read for anyone interested in booksReview copy provided by publisher I received this book as a Goodreads First ReadDon t et misled by the title of this book it s about writing the best book in the world It doesn t just stop at the title the author misleads the reader in a few ways throughout the novel It s a book that may leave you confused after finishing it but to me that s the mark of a ood bookThe story follows two writers one an old has been and the other young and popular both want to write the best book in the world It s a humour. Who will win the race to write the best book in the world and to what unimaginable lengths will they o to Collections of Nothing get there first A hilarious tale of authorly competitionTitus Jensen is middle aged has a fondness for alcohol and makes ends meet byiving 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.

I still thought the final chapter the main source of confusion could have been a bit longer The characters were Communism 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 dimensional 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 didn 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 wasreat 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 How to Read the American City Close Up great book that I very much enjoyed reading Recommended for lighter literary fiction lovers This book will make you think but it won t pose you any unsolvable mysteries either I received this book via a GoodreadsiveawayThere 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 ot plenty of irreverent and sa This book is deliciously different it " the world It s also ot plenty of irreverent and sa This book is deliciously different it 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 ive it him back He can win me over by writing books Soon 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 drunk and shuts down 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 downAt to be an overused tiresome trope and the reader feels let downAt end it always comes down 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 Good but not reat because it drags in the middle The idea is clever and the execution predictable my hunches about the plot twists were correct I enjoyed it but didn t love it. So amazing that it will end up on all the bestseller lists in every category imaginable thriller self help cooking business dieting 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. Ous 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 I 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 really don t et 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 ood one who could have told him soI was reading this on an excursion right while we were taking a 20 minutes drive to the country and then did 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 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 Conversations with Nelson Algren got exciting or interesting Wanting to write the BBitW by mixingenres together Nope No effing way as any editor would tell you Target audience must be laser sharp targetedThe only ood twist was the last few pages though I still don t et it why strong women would want to make out with female ish colourful haired boys 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 it down which is the reason for this "Book Receiving 3 StarsYou " receiving 3 starsYou see my full review on my blog here I m not a freuent literary fiction reader but when I do read here I m not a freuent literary fiction reader but when I do read 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 fame they both set 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 Contested Reproduction: Genetic Technologies, Religion, and Public Debate get that it mightet 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 Cop Knowledge: Police Power and Cultural Narrative in Twentieth-Century America going on Even though I was reading so attentively. N A radical poet and regular on the festival circuit he can't help thinking there has to be to life for a talentedood 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 et horribly drunk together and hatch a plan to achieve worldwide recognition The answer is to write the best book in the world a book. ,
