DOWNLOAD æ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ½ Pat Barker SUMMARY ä Another World Home As Nick's suburban family loses control over their world Nick begins to learn his grandfather's buried secrets and comes to understand the power of old wounds to leak into t. Another World by Pat Barker takes place in the current day with a big portion of the story occurring in the memories of the old man who fought in WW1 Our main characters are Nick and his grandfather Geordie Nick is a university professor who is there to help care for his grandpa who is at the end of his life Geordie is a 101 year old man in his last days and a veteran of the first world war Although many other members of the family are present they are mostly unimportant and part of the backgroundThe story is really about memory How does trauma affect it What about age Is Geordie s memory stronger as he nears his death or is it less reliable I like how the author uestions the permanence and reliability of memory She uses her characters to show us how memory is colored by our personal views and experiences Memory changes and adapts It is about perception What we value at one point in our life differs from other times and those values affect what we remember and how we see things And sometimes the memories are also affected by the stories we hear from others They intertwine and meld together changing the storyBut for me the power of this book was about its exploration of death and grief These moments between Nick and Geordie were uite beautiful The emotions were real and raw and brought to my mind my own feelings about the last week of my father s life I found myself wishing that he had been alert and verbal during that time so that I could relive it and ask him a million uestions probing his memory regardless of its malleability Explorations of death always resonate with me It is one experience that we will all face Losing a person we loved is a universal experience and the emotions that are triggered are parallel to those of others in the similar place

    Another World E–book/E–pub Another World by Pat Barker is a novel whose parts do not add up to the sum of the whole There is no getting there in this novel for there is nowhere to go With the past dripping into the present through a ghost and a hidden mural in the family's home the novel has enough of the past to create interest; yet it does not The characters are well drawn but there is no follow through and the reader is left wondering what to make of it all This
