Read & Download Pandatage â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Free read Pandatage At the man in the panda costume is his father Afraid of disclosing his true identity Danny comforts his son But will Danny lose Will’s trust once he reveals who he is And will he be able to dance his way out of debt or be beaten up before he has a chance Filled with a colorful cast of characters Bear Necessity is a refreshingly unpretentious and ultimately uplifting story of a father and son reconnecting in the most unlikely of circumstance. For a debut novel Keeping Mum is absolutely amazing Such a truly wonderful story it had me hooked from the start Danny Malooley is a character that you will instantly fall in love with He s a hapless man with his life practically falling around at his feet Fourteen months ago the centre of his world died in a car crash His wife Liz his childhood sweetheart the mother of his son When Liz died a part of Will died that day too At the centre of this story is a heartbreaking plotline A man has lost the love of his life A son has lost his mother Neither know how to deal with their grief and this pushes them apart Will hasn t spoken since his mother died and Danny has found this hard However despite the heartache This story is uplifting and bloody hilarious I laughed so much at some of the scrapes Danny got himself into And what made this book charming were the secondary characters that were involved in Danny and Will s life Ivan Ivana and Yuri are amazing If there s ever people that you need in your life to pick you up and make you feel good or just to be there to protect you It s Ivan and his family It may not be conventional their way of helping or imparting words of wisdom but my word they were a light relief Even Reg and his sidekick Dent who were terrorising poor Danny for rent money Cue the tying him up and threatening him with a claw hammer Sounds scary Yes But the way Gould Bourn writes it just makes you smile There are times when you read a book you can just imagine how it would play out as a film I would love to see Keeping Mum on the big screen I d love to see the dancing panda get beat up by the Ukrainians I d love to see El Magnifico wearing his dressing gown I d love to see The Shark I could sit here all day and tell you about the scenes in this book that had me smiling and chuckling away to myself But that would spoil the enjoyment for you Keeping Mum will have you smiling from ear to ear It s a book that will cheer you up no end

Pandatage

Read & Download Pandatage â PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Free read Pandatage A heartwarming poignant and charming debut novel for fans of Nick Hornby and The Rosie Project about a father and son overcoming their grief in surprisingly inventive waysDanny’s life is falling apart He’s become a single father to eleven year old Will who hasn’t spoken since the death of his mother in a car crash a year earlier and Danny has just been fired from his construction job To make matters worse he’s behind on the rent and h. Danny lost his wife in a car crash and since that day his son Will hasn t spoken a word Reeling from that loss he has been keeping his head scarcely above water from one day to the next In for a rude awakening when he is fired from his construction job his landlord threatening literal bodily harm if he can t make rent Danny resolves to become a street performer This start to Bear Necessity sounds like a veritable catastrophe in the making though it becomes an unlikely boon when Will unknowingly begins to open up to his panda disguised fatherSomehow a book about a boy who will not utter a word a year after his mother s death manages to be energetic and loud Watching Will open up is less like the delicate unfurling of a rose and like a hurtle down the stairs the story propelling itself with a near unparalleled verve Of course this is achieved with the help of a stripper dance teacher a Russian friend with conspicuous hints at mafia ties and the dad who is willing to don a smelly panda costume and shake his limbs with zero dance expertise In this case you need to take overcoming their grief in surprisingly inventive ways from the blurb very literally inventive absurdto may to to mah to James Gould Bourn doesn t aim for subtle did I mention loud earlier Sometimes I feel like I m being yelled at prodded and poked by this joke or that wisecrack Then again said humor could tickle me in a most delightful way Ultimately it s childish fun and I found myself increasingly charmed the further Bear Necessity progressed There are outrageous situations and characters so over the top that I had to uestion these hyperactive adults with the energy reservoirs of sub 14 year olds There are also moments so touching that I didn t even realize I was touched until I felt a tear in the corner of my eye I wish I could strike out some of the earlier narration unnecessarily detailed Every action is commented on a lot of telling that nags and pulls you out of the scene at times Long sentences of internal musings would wander tangentially making little headway in character development and obstructing the often hilarious dialogue between characters Once Gould Bourn hits his stride though or maybe when I couldn t help but end up invested in seeing these zany characters find their resolutions I felt there was a perfect balance between laughter and poignancyI can forgive the imperfect execution and exceedingly contrived scenarios because there is ample heart and hilarity never emotionally manipulative in the way that books about grief can be Witnessing Danny get yanked out of his comfort zone while he draws Will into a safe space to flourish made this compilation of gags and heartfelt moments worth it Bear Necessity sends a message that a journey through grief is a hazy path to discern paved by love and support of others How we move forward from tragedy comes in different but eually important forms to acknowledge The way Gould Bourn sells the premise it wouldn t be so far fetched as to say a dancing panda could get involved Many thanks to Netgalley and Scribner for an ARC in exchange for an honest review
