    I generally look over other people s reviews to refresh myself before I add a book I read a long time ago I was genuinely surprised to see how many people hated this book It seems like people either got it and loved it like me , or didn t get it and simply hated it.Admittedly, the story is far fetched You must suspend disbelief in order to swallow the premise of the story, which is of an impoverished Irish boy doomed to live forever until he is able to avenge a wrong done to his family If y I generally look over other people s reviews to refresh myself before I add a book I read a long time ago...

    Forever is one of the best books I have read in a very long time I closed the book with a feeling of regret knowing that I wouldn t read a story this good for quite some time It s a beautifully written and haunting story that is deeply rooted in the heart of New York, but one that fundamentally speaks about the mysteries of human condition and the things we feel but cannot fully articulate This remarkable hybrid is an absorbing, satisfying read and the story stays with you a long time after y Forever is one of the best books I have read in a very long time I closed the book with a feeling of regret knowing that I wouldn t read a story this good for quite some time It s a beautifully written and haunting story that is deeply rooted in the heart of New York, but one that fundamentally speaks about the mysteries of human condition and the things we feel but cannot fully articulate This remarkable hybrid is an absorbing, satisfying read and the story stays with ...

    This was not the book that I expected it to be Every plot summary of this novel describes it as a history of New York City as experienced by a man who is granted immortality only so long as he never leaves the island of Manhattan Granted, that does happen, but first you have to slog through an annoying, pr...

    I am a bit offended by the current number one review that says people either get this book or hate it Just because I hate it does not mean I did not get it A book that is about a man who lives forever is going to face challenges It is either going to be epicly long or going to skim and jump without real depth, or some combination of the two This book mostly jumped and skipped This made it hard to become emotionally involved with the book Because of this, I was planning to give the book I am a bit offended by the current number one review that says people either get this book or hate it Just because I hate it does not mean I did not get it A book that is about a man who lives forever is going to face challenges It is either going to be epicly long or going to skim and jump without real depth, or some combination of the two This book mostly jumped and skipped This made it hard to become emotionally involved with the book Because of this, I was planning to give the book two stars, until I got to the end The biggest ...

    This book had me from the first page It starts in Ireland in the 1700s and takes us on a fantastic journey ending in New York in 2001 Through the protagonist s eyes we see the humble beginnings of New York City in its infancy and watch as it transforms over the centuries to the mighty metropolis it is today Saying anything else would be spoiling I certainly recommend this book if you are a New Yorker like me It has been said that we are the most forgetful when it comes to our own history an This book had me from the first page It starts in Ireland in the 1700s and takes us on a fantastic journey ending in New York in 2001 Through the protagonist s eyes we see the humble beginnings of New York City in its infancy and watch as it transforms ove...

    Conceptually I liked this book, though it lost something in the execution Exploring New York through the eyes of a single character is interesting, but in order to do it justice the book needed about 1,000pages at least If this novel was a five book series toldslowly it would have worked much better.I found the 9 11 chapter a bit forced There was way too much foreshadowing We know what s ahead of us and yet the Hamill can t resist mentioning low flying planes and looming t Conceptually I liked this book, though it lost something in the execution Exploring New York through the eyes of a single character is interesting, but in order to do it justice the book needed about 1,000pages ...

    Part of my disappointment in Pete Hamill s Forever is probably based on the fact that I had different expectations when I began reading There was an extremely misleading quote on the back cover comparing the book favorably to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter I also expected the book to focus on New York City, which is does, but only well after a hundred pages based in Ireland.Okay The book did have its good points I thought the concept was fantastic immortal man witnesses the evolut Part of my disappointment in Pete Hamill s Forever is probably based on the fact that I had different expectations when I began reading There was an extremely misleading quote on the back cover comparing the book favorably to Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter I also expected the book to focus on New York City, which is does, but only well after a hundred pages based in Ireland.Okay The book did have its good points I thought the concept was fantastic immortal man witnesses the evolution of a city The characters were robust and intriguing Hamill presented interesting, well researched tidbits from New York City s history I especially loved the section set during the city s fetid period And although I wasn t expecting such an extended portion of the book to be set in Ireland, that section was actually my favorite He really placed me in the setting with the mist rolling off the green fields and the mystical lore of the native Irish He should have ex...

    I have mixed feelings about this novel The beginning one third of the story was very captivating and moving I thought the author did a great job with character development and drawing the reader into an intriguing plot laced with bits of Irish folklore and Celtic Mythology Somewhere around the middle, however, the story began to drag for me and became quite overrun with characters to follow An account that takes place overthan two centuries, ending after the events of 9 11 01, lends it I have mixed feelings about this novel The beginning one third of the story was very captivating and moving I thought the author did a great job with character development and drawing the reader into an intriguing plot laced with bits of Irish folklore and Celtic Mythology Somewhere around the middle, however, the story began to drag for me and became quite overrun with characters to follow An account that takes place overthan two centuries, ending afte...

    The idea of a first person account of the whole history of Manhattan was really intriguing to me, so I was really excited to read this book, and assumed that the whole you re immortal but you can t leave Manhattan thing was just a weird plot device in order to make this first person narrative make sense Instead, the opposite seemed to be true the history of Manhattan seemed to be just a setting for the whole strange spiritual mythological side of the story That said, I loved the first 1 3 o The idea of a first person account of the whole history of Manhattan was really intriguing to me, so I was really excited to read this book, and assumed that the whole you re immortal but you can t leave Ma...

    Caution spoilers All in all an uneven read Fun, if you aren t critical, but lots to take issue with The main character is given the gift of eternal life, with conditions The first quarter of the book which takes place in Ireland, is better, though a bit stereotypical of Irish culture The plot sounds fun, but in truth makes the main character less than completely sympathetic Somehow he manages to be consumed by revenge, yet is bland and boring The sections of the book are vignettes of dif Caution spoilers All in all an uneven read Fun, if you aren t critical, but lots to take issue with The main character is given the gift of eternal life, with conditions The first quarter of the book which takes place in Ireland, is better, though a bit stereotypical of Irish culture The plot sounds fun, but in truth makes the main character less than completely sympathetic Somehow he manages to be consumed by revenge, yet is bland and boring The sections of the book are vignettes of different times in NYC, but don t have a consistency of writing Hamill says he took back the completed book after the Trade Center disaster and added a section In my opinion, that shows, the book would have been better without it Deus ex machina rules in this book, with the main characte...
