    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFThis was hard to read Really hard Authors like Cormac McCarthy seem to want to sink into and wallow in depressing and disheartening; Herlihy was just handing me a world and saying here here is how it is and something about that was cutting me on every single page I actually took a break from this book for a day or two because I wasn't ready to be brought back into Joe Buck's mindHerlihy demonstrated a great ability to write compact straightfoward prose I was amazed by the way he showed me Joe Buck's helplessness and confusion without suggesting I look down on him or pity him It's obvious that Joe is not intelligent but Herlihy doesn't say he's dumb or even show him doing stupid things he just gives us a character that's unable to process the world to make contact with anything realHaving seen the movie whic

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFGreat moments in feline cinema #2 Sure everyone knows the movie But I didn't even know it was originally a novel until uite recently That is unfortunate because the novel is a brilliant portrayal of down and outers Herlihy's tale of dreams and struggles in unforgiving New York is as relentless as it can be but there is a certain poetry in the characters of Buck and Ratso The biggest difference in book from film is that we find a out a lot about Buck; his upbringing his torments and why the likable but not so bright

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFThe 1969 film version of Midnight Cowboy is an absolute classic one of my favourite films ever so I approached James Leo Herlihy's original story with a little trepidation However his novel made me smile feel for the characters right from the opening paragraph when Joe Buck walks out of a shop wearing his new bootsThe prose is wonderful although I did find it impossible to get Jon Voight Dustin Hoffman out of my mind as I read A superb book that became a classic film

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFThere was no way I could relate or even care about the tale of a naïve guy in the 1960s with rose colored dreams of taking New York City by storm as a male prostitute I mean those aren't shoes I walk in or have even come close to walking by Yet James Leo Herlihy makes me walk in them makes me become involved as after being sucked into Joe Buck’s lonely seedy and reckless world meeting the depressing little lump that is Rico “Ratso” Rizzo thrown about the underworld of New Y

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFMidnight Cowboy is one of those books that has not profited from the reputation of its far better known movie version Almost everyone has seen the great John Schlessinger movie of the sixties but very few have read the source novel also called Midnight Cowboy And what a shame Herlihy’s novel is so beautifully written and executed that you fall into its spell with the first sad story of the Texan loner Joe Buck and his long voyage to the mean streets of New York City Every incident and characterization is perfectly rendered and the reader instantly forgets that he or she is reading a novel That is the highest praise a novel can receive Herlihy’s reputation as one of America’s finest novelists would probably have been better served if the movie had been less successful and people

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFAs promised our hero is young dumb and full of cum He may not be a real cowboy but he's certainly from Mishima Country But the rest of the story was a bit of a disappointment There's not as much sex as you'd think the violence is weird there's a really boring scene at Warhol's Factory or similar and I found it hard to care about Ratso

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFHaving seen and loved the movie Midnight Cowboy I was curious to read the book on which it was based This is a terrific novel about an amazingly neglected man child trying to find his way in the world The whole first part of the novel was left out of the movie which begins with Joe Buck's arrival in New York City and it is important to make real sense of some of the character's ideas like that he could make a living off of grateful women since NYC is filled with faggots In the movie he was played as just plain dumb but in reading the book I had the sense that he was a person who had received so little guidance from or connection with other human beings that he knew very little except for what was in his own head Like Of Mice and Men this book

    Paperback☆ Midnight Cowboy PDF ↠ midnight ebok, cowboy book, Midnight Cowboy PDFVery interesting read The book was much different in tone than I was expecting I have not seen the movie but knew the bare bones of the plot from various clips of the film I had seen on TV The characters were very relatable the various settings were very well done and I felt it was very well written the author's style did not overwhelm the story
