    Scribbling the Cat free read ´ 6 Scribbling the CatThis is the only author that I have given every single one of the books they have written five stars What is amazing then Her writing Every line reads like poetry The content There is so much to think about in Fuller's books Only on the surface did this book concern the Rhodesian War It is much about making sense of our lives about terror and promises and love How low can a human being go And how do we then pick ourselves up and go on We all have our own demons how do we get beyond them And there is no one pat solution for all of us The book description states it is about K well it is just as much an introspective look at the author too And you And me The emotional impact If you can read this book calmly without getting upset then you are a stone I guarantee you will both

    Scribbling the Cat free read ´ 6 Scribbling the CatScribbling the Cat Travels with an African Soldier draws the reader in with a dose of the familiar Bobo her Mom and Dad drinking together in Africa But no this isn't another Fuller family memoir it is a collection of confessions by K a former Rhodesian soldier K is a very strange man I never could get a handle on where he was coming from He clearly suffered from guilt of his past confusion of where he wanted his life to go and what he believed K could cuss and praise God in the same sentence He could reflect fondly on his soldier life and regret it in the same minute He was a multitude of conflicts K and Bobo trek through Zambia and Mozambiue following his course as a soldier allowing K to reflect on his pastOn the other hand Fuller writes with a delightful mix of African words and her fun style Africa is brought to life in all its vividness uirks and un

    Scribbling the Cat free read ´ 6 Scribbling the CatDNF No rating as I didn’t finish itInitially I thought this would be good but as I read through the book I got and sceptical of K’s background story An absolute procession of horrors and tragedies left me thinking “Is this for real” This was all before we had even got to his experiences in the Rhodesian Bush WarOf course K’s stories might be true None of the individual events were implausible in themselves it was the sheer number of them happening to a single pers

    Scribbling the Cat free read ´ 6 Scribbling the CatI read this book in one day a long day of traveling actually so maybe that was just a fluke If i hadn't had anything else to read and if my iPod hadn't died some days before I probably would have put this down long before finishingI'm still processing this book I think what bothered me about it was the fact that while I was reading it i kept thinking Why on earth was this book even written As some kind of catharsis for the author and basically that's probably the case Fuller gets herself into a mess of trouble with a former soldier who fought in the Rhodesian wars and tries to make this guy referred to only as K into something humanUltimately this is a story of pain and suffering though whose remains unclear K is not supposed to be a figure of sympathy in my estimation and Fuller gets mixed up in this guy's history

    Scribbling the Cat free read ´ 6 Scribbling the CatAlexandra Fuller is such a talented writer and funny Smart and funny a wonderful combination Scribbling the Cat is her description of K a man she pursues as a writer someone she wants to write about K is a white African soldier struggling through his memories and experiences of the Rhodesian War By necessity the author only gets at the surface of things She is with K a relatively short time She never knows him well So we never do either It's all impressionistic anecdotal fleeting All the characters including Fuller herself are flawed Even the landscape which is also a character is flawed A little mean Malarial This worries me a bit when I think of going to Malawi this fall in pursuit of my own writing project A lot of things worry me about this of course and I can't say that reading this book made me worry less I don't imagine I will ever get much closer than this to the Rhodesian War in which a minority of white Africans
