Reviews of : Carnival by Compton MacKenzie PDF Book
Inside this Book – It is the story of Jennie, a young girl growing up in Scotland. What she grows up to is a mystery to me. Remember that I didn’t finish the book. We meet her when she is an infant, and follow her through the stage of baby talk that seems to go on for many chapters. If this doesn’t get you, then the saccharine views she expresses about the world around her later certainly will. I’m reminded of Dorothy Parker’s review of “Winnie The Pooh,” where she makes the comment: “I’m sorry dear weader, but this book makes this rewiewer want to thwo up.” This edition contains an introduction by the author. He expresses his dismay at the book being dismissed by The Times Literary Supplement, but he is happy when he received favorable comments from J. M. Barrie and Yeats. I suspect he misinterpr
Inside this book –Carnival PDF Book by Compton MacKenzie – I chose Carnival as I had yet to read anything by this author. I knew the television series ‘Monarch of the Glenn’ is loosely based on one of his works, and I love the series- somehow I couldn’t find that literary work in the freebies, so I tried Carnival. I did not love this book, I did stick with it as the main character obtained my pity and I wanted to find out how life turned out for her. Jenny (the main character) lacks wisdom and is crass (compared to well bred women of the day, but not really by today’s standards), and you see she is formed by her environment. Another look at the class system, but this young woman has a mode (dancing) to break out of her life which may have otherwise kept her without opportunity, as a good education was not provided. I rooted for her, but a big part of me did not care. I mostly kept with Jenny for curiosity sake. C. Mackenzie’s writing was what kept me coming back, and his descriptions of the life Jenny is surrounded by and the other characters was more interesting than Jenny herself.
