    MOBI Paul Theroux ↠ MOBI The Consul's File PDF ´ The Consul's PDF or ↠ chadever.co consul's book, file ebok, The Consul's pdf, The Consul's File PDFThe new American Consul arrives in Ayer Hitam Malaysia and immediately finds the expats are a mixed bunch Initially I thought Ayer Hitam was going to be a fictional place but it isn't it is a real place in the state of Johor just north of the Singapore borderThe books takes the form of chapter length short stories The are slightly interconnected in that the characters reoccur the key characters are present in almost every chapter but importantly they are told in the order they occur they are linear The closest example I can recall is Narayan's Malgudi stories set in the fictional town of Malgudi Again those stories are stand alone but interconnectedThere is a good variety of stories mostly about people but also a Christmas party visitors the drama society a murder mystery a witch doctor and a mix of other things until the consuls departure is imminent An easy s

    MOBI Paul Theroux ↠ MOBI The Consul's File PDF ´ The Consul's PDF or ↠ chadever.co consul's book, file ebok, The Consul's pdf, The Consul's File PDFSuperb collection of short stories set in the Malaysian town of Ayer Hitam in the rubber jungles of Johore Back in the 70s Paul Theroux spent a couple of years in the Far East around the time that the American military effort in Vietnam was collapsing in shame and acrimony Theroux was only 36 when he published this book but on this evidence he could have been mentioned in the same breath as Somerset Maugham and Joseph Conrad as a chronicler of the East had he been content to plough this particular furrow But that was never going to be Theroux’s style so footloose was he that he eventually came to be known as the Anglosphere’s for

    MOBI Paul Theroux ↠ MOBI The Consul's File PDF ´ The Consul's PDF or ↠ chadever.co consul's book, file ebok, The Consul's pdf, The Consul's File PDFPaul Theroux The Consul's File Ballantine 1978I know of Theroux through his wonderfully minimal little horror tale The Black House seems most people know him for travel writing This is something of which I was previously unaware but I became well acuinted with it while reading this book a loose collection of stories about the life of an American consul sent to Ayer Hitam in Malaysia to close down the consulate there As a side note Ayer Hitam is now a forest preserve maintained by the University Putra Malaysia and dropping by UPM's website to take the photo tour lends a whole other perspective into reading this bookTheroux's hapless protagonist spends his time cataloguing the odd folks to be found in and passing through Ayer Hitam and Theroux's strength lies mostly in characterization The population of Ayer Hitam eual parts indigenous Tamil and Chinese with a smattering of British expatriates is the stories' re

    MOBI Paul Theroux ↠ MOBI The Consul's File PDF ´ The Consul's PDF or ↠ chadever.co consul's book, file ebok, The Consul's pdf, The Consul's File PDFThis is a story book every chapter a different anecdote on South East Asian life as an expat It holds different writing styles horror romance travel satire Each is compelling relaying a deeper message than the story itself It can be read as a portrayal of human character and of a parable of universal dreams and flaws The writing is very fluid and pleasant Theroux doesn't spoon feed you his message the reader is left to draw her own conclusionsI loved the last chapter it's an essay about traveling life and writing in general

    MOBI Paul Theroux ↠ MOBI The Consul's File PDF ´ The Consul's PDF or ↠ chadever.co consul's book, file ebok, The Consul's pdf, The Consul's File PDFA young and sensitive diplomat arrives at Ayer Hitam a remote Malaysian town in the heart of a dwindling rubber and palm plantation region with a brief to close the American Consulate there The book is the recounting of the diplomat's experiences opinions and findings about the place and its people The events that trigger the stories are nothing if not dramatic starting with his arrival meeting with a garrulous woman who turns out to be paranoid The narrator subseuently meets ghosts encounters murders of expats witnesses the blood chilling conseuences of black magic dysfunctional marriages a kidnapping attempt and other such sensational events He also meets people like him who despite the apparent differences in style and thinking gradually convince him about their similarity at the core Here I have in mind his meeting with Sundrum the only novelist fr
