    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDF The Explorer felt like Maugham the playwright rather than Maughham the novilist By this I mean that playwrights have the ability to narrate the behaviors of the actors and rely upon the actors to communicate the emotions of the characters The novilist however needs to place his readers inside his characters if their emotions are to be effectively felt With The Explorer the characters are described in various emotional states but I was never placed inside of them I never had the opportunity to walk in their shoes so to speakThen there is the unsympathetic plot The term First World Problems comes to mind in that the characters are the upper crust of English society The problems that drive this book develop from injuries that affect the characters’ social standing and the pride that

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFThis book was written by Maugham when he was 25 and it is obvious that the author was a very young man because his characters never change throughout time that is at that time WSM did not know yet that a person when she is 25 is different from when she is 29 Two people passionately in love with each other separate for four years and when they meet again everything seems to be just like when they last saw each other Albeit

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFI am dismayed by this book for being so mediocre The antiuated storyline is rather tedious and tiresome The tone shifted from righteous seriousness to outright flippancy without managing to be smooth The characters are uite simply archtypicals without much depth and nunancesIt is an English tragedy and a comedy and a romance thrown together a salad with ill looking leaves and a few long dead shrimps and a few surprisingly fresh looking grapes This is not an impressive work

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFI have somewhat mixed feelings about this book It's cut from the same cloth as Mrs Craddock and Maugham's other pre Of Human Bondage novels in that the prose is a bit on the flowery side and the tone somewhat melodramatic compared to his later work If anything it feels even like a 19th Century novel than Mrs Craddock does with so much of the plot centered on marriage proposals and such It's also unusual for a Maugham book in that it becomes obvious pretty early on what the main conflict is going to be so early on that it's almost tedious waiting for it to come Or would be tedious

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDF‘The Explorer’ may not be Maugham’s most memorable work but you’ll still find his signature well drawn characters and elegant prose in this novel he penned when he was a mere 25 years old It’s hard to believe someone so young could write so well And could anyone else make passive voice sound so stylishThe story is strong if uneven with the most compelling thread that of

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFI was not expecting much from this novel If it were any good I would have heard about it I cannot remember Maugham talking about it in any of his autobiographical writingsAnd indeed it is rather weak We have our heroine Alice who comes straight from the 18th century She comes from a well respected old family Unfortunately father wastes the family fortune and ends up in prison for some bucket shopping whatever

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFI consider Somerset Maugham as one of my favorite authors The Explorer was a nice diversion The story was classic in that it bordered on melodramatic and the outcomes were somewhat predictable When something happened as a twist to the story I generally nodded as if to say Yes I could see that coming There were passages that engaged the mind in reflection which is what I value most about reading and often find in Maugham's writing This book was a good distraction much like watching Downton Abbey on a Sunday evening

    The Explorer Epub æ Paperback explorer ebok, The Explorer PDFSomehow in 'The Explorer' I sorely missed the cold ruthless analysis of love and emotions thats so typical of Maugham's works This one's a straight story of a daring British explorer in Africa whose reputation gets tarnished on his return costing him the trust of his beloved The
