Sam Savage Ò 6 summary

review Firmin Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife Sam Savage Ò 6 summary Firmin Adventures of a Metropolitan Lowlife free read ´ 6 Savage erzählt in diesem gefeierten Kultbuch die traurig charmante Geschichte eines verkannten Außenseite. This book had all the ingredients to make me like it a lot and yet it was just a little above the OK read A rat that lives in a bookshop and learns to read is undoubtedly an interesting theme However I found some parts of the book dragging for too long than once making me feel sleepy On the other hand all the references to books were interesting the account of the slow degradation of the neighborhood is very well achieved the friendship of Firmin with the unsuccessful writer is funny and touching and even the end of the story though a bit sad couldn t probably be very different But for some reason which I still haven t uite realised what it is this book hasn t really resonated with me
