    If Nick Harkaway sounds like the made up name of a superhero, you re half right He is a super writer, and that comic book inspired name is the pseudonym of Nicholas Cornwell, who s the son of John le Carr , which is the pseudonym of David John Moore Cornwell, who once worked for MI5 and MI6 so who knows if any of this is actually true.Trust me, though, when I say that Harkaway s new novel, Tigerman, is an irresistible delight, something like Major Pettigrew s Last Stand as played by Jam If Nick Harkaway sounds like the made up name of a superhero, you re half right He is a super writer, and that comic book inspired name is the pseudonym of Nicholas Cornwell, who s the son of John le Carr , which is the pseudonym of David John Moore Cornwell, who once worked for MI5 and MI6 so who knows if any of this is actually true.Trust me, though, when I say that Harkaway s new novel, Tigerman, is an irresistible delight, something like Major...

    Tigerman is about a sergeant in The British Army, nearing retirement and charged with one last deployment, seeing the former British colony of Mancreu through to its destruction This was following a combination of industrial waste and volcanic activity, rendering it a Biohazard Eco disaster Mancreu also has its share of drug factories, dealers, money laundering, and torture centres For me this book started off really slowly, almost lethargic, but I suppose given the fact that the sergeant in Tigerman is about a sergeant in The British Army, nearing retirement and charged with one last deployment, seeing the former British colony of Mancreu through to its destruction This was following a combination of industrial waste and volcanic activity, rendering it a Biohazard Eco disaster Mancreu also has its share of drug factories, dealers, ...

    I loved The Gone Away World, really liked Angelmaker but was not as interested by this one.It started well and I was really enjoying the characters of the Sergeant and the boy and the relationship between them The island life style was well described too especially the way the potential disaster situation was affecting the inhabitants Everything seemed to be going well and then about half way through things seemed to falter and I found myself losing interest A lot of fighting ensued and some I loved The Gone Away World, really liked Angelmaker but was not as interested by this one.It started well and I was really enjoying the characters of the Sergeant and the boy and the relationship b...

    This is a very different book than Harkaway s previous two works of fiction It doesn t have the breakneck pace that The Gone Away World and Angelmaker did, but the tradeoff seems to be aemotionally resonant heart to the book His books have a fascinating combination of different components international skulduggery, loneliness, loyalty, and the quiet well, not so quiet in this particular book heroism of ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances So, to sum up, while there aren t a This is a very different book than Harkaway s previous two works of fiction It doesn t have the breakneck pace that The Gone Away World and Angelmaker did, but the tradeoff seems to be aemotionally resonant heart to the book His books have a fascinating combination of different components international skulduggery, loneliness, loyalty, and the quiet well, not so quiet in this particular book heroism of ordinary people in extraordinary...

    Ahhhhhhhh You ever read a book and think, Meh, that was nice But then after you close it, it just builds on you There was something between the lines that planted a seed in you and it grew and grew and grew That s what happened to me with Nick Harkaway s TIGERMAN I was ready to give it a four star rating, walk away, and call it good Nope.First, Harkaway knows me He s one of my people As soon as I saw him mention gold farming I knew In game chat channels, leet speak, comic culture a Ahhhhhhhh You ever read a book and think, Meh, that was nice But then after you close it, it just builds on you There was something between the lines that planted a seed in you and it grew and grew and grew That s what happened to me with Nick Harkaway s TIGERMAN I was ready to give it a four star rating, walk away, and call it good Nope.First, Harkaway knows me He s one of my people As soon as I saw him mention gold farming I knew In game chat channels, leet speak, comic culture all my people s language So that was nice As Harkaway writes, it had a digital flavor, merry and modern Second, there s the island as a character Right away we witness a pelican swallowing a pigeon Amusing But then it dawned on me later, Hey That was symbolic, wasn t it On one hand, we see an island lose its culture and people, being assimilated into the larger world soc...

    I had no idea what to expect from Tigerman All I knew is that Nick Harkaway has a new book out, and so I wanted to read it At first it seemed like this was a pleasant, slightly uneven postcolonial story of an old soldier bonding with a boy on a doomed island Gradually, I came to understand that there is muchhappening beneath the surface Tigerman lacks a lot of the flamboyant absurdity of Angelmaker , and it hewsclosely to the recognizable tropes of literary realism But the resu I had no idea what to expect from Tigerman All I knew is that Nick Harkaway has a new book out, and so I wanted to read it At first it seemed like this was a pleasant, slightly uneven postcolonial story of an old soldier bonding with a boy on a doomed island Gradually, I came to understand that there is muchhappening beneath the surface Tigerman lacks a lot of the flamboyant absurdity of Angelmaker , and it hewsclosely to the recognizable tropes of literary realism But the result is just as surreal and evocative as anything else Harkaway has written.With a name like Tigerman, I kind of wondered if Lester would turn out to be some kin...

    Got a signed copy for my birthday As per the comments below, Harkaway did not balls up the final act something chronic, and this steamrollered a 5 star rating.The bar has now been set all other books read in 2015 will be measured against Tigerman.
