Doctorow º º Ragtime PDF/EPUB ê ragtime book, Ragtime PDFEPUBNo One Ever Drove This Fast BeforeThe most startling thing about Ragtime is the pace of the narrative It never slackens even to allow direct speech It moves relentlessly from place to place person to person with non stop description assertion connection reversal There are crowds and traffic and excitement wherever you look If there is temporary euilibrium it is fragile a tour boat listing first to starboard then to port; a motor car belching steam at the crest of a hill a chau

    ePUB E.L. Doctorow º º Ragtime PDF/EPUB ê ragtime book, Ragtime PDFEPUBSometime early in his career EL Doctorow figured out a great formula for historical fiction He takes real life iconic figures from whatever era he’s covering and has them interact in believable ways with his fictional characters It makes for a “show don’t tell” scenario that brings history alive With Ragtime we get to peek inside the heads of Houdini Freud JP Morgan Emma Goldman Henry Ford and others In the process we learn the issues of the day and get an authentic feel for the setting We can appreciate the context and connections that animate his stories Ragtime is set in the decade leading up to WWI There was a lot going on in those days especially in a place like New York It was a period of social unrest brought on no doubt by the great divide between the haves

    ePUB E.L. Doctorow º º Ragtime PDF/EPUB ê ragtime book, Ragtime PDFEPUBWhen we read history books we are given a rather wide view of a tapestry of interconnected events what Doctorow did with Ragtime is to take a magnifying glass to that intricate tapestry to give the reader a much much closer look at some events that we thought we were familiar with As such it's a bit hard to summarize we follow some episodes of the lives of a Upstate New York family and how their existence is linked to such famous figures as Harry Houdini Henry Ford Emma Goldman Evelyn Nesbit Sigmund Freud etcThe writing style is very simple and clean which makes Ragtime a fast read and it also strikes a very pleasant storytelling tone But that tone is also a bit impersonal and while I enjoyed this visit to early 20th century America I'm not sure that I loved it I never really felt transported to the setting nor especially invested in the stories of the various characters Which is weird because I am fascinated
