    eBook Rose Tremain ó eBook The road home Kindle  The road PDF/EPUB or ó padreramon.co road book, home mobile, The road pdf, The road home PDF/EPUBFiction so convincing that it could be a true storyThe journey begins with Lev's bus journey from his home in Eastern Europe to the loneliness of impersonal London Lev is into his early forties has recently lost his wife to cancer and believes that the only way that he can support his very young daughter and his mother is to find himself a job in London His life long friend who supposedly knows such things has told Lev that he should be able to get by in London on £20 a week The truth becomes apparent within 24 hours of his arrival at Victoria Bus Terminus when he finds out how much it's going to cost for one night

    eBook Rose Tremain ó eBook The road home Kindle  The road PDF/EPUB or ó padreramon.co road book, home mobile, The road pdf, The road home PDF/EPUBI ordered The Road Home with the usual expectations that one would have for a book by an admired author But oh dear It is unbelievable at so many levels as well as schematic and sentimental There are irritating little mistakes of fact that Rose Tremain shouldn't make London underground trains running on Christmas Day; a man's mobile is stolen he gets another and is instantly rung on it even though of course the sim card will have remained in the stolen phone so no one would know his new numberand so on But then take her main character Lev who comes from an unnamed Baltic country which has just become an EU accession state he was latterly a manual worker in a wood mill until it closed because there were no trees left to process yet his speech patterns in his native tongue veer from the almost stupid to the incredibly wordy; his inner life doesn't seem to belong to a man of his life experience and background He falls for a young plump kitchen worker in an upmarket restaurant
