    Summary Paradise News 108 Paradise NewsI was wondering round the park taking in the running styles of the dogs and the man practising Tai Chi with a pair of wooden cutlasses and who may or may not have been arrested shortly after by the plain clothes police I saw putting on stab proof vests by the park entrances and I thought that I probably haven't read enough nineteenth century English literature to have much to say about this nice middle aged book in which a Priest comes to terms with his loss of faith and succeeds in finding love and a flavour to life At which point it struck me that while I can't point to specific novels and allusions What is the crisis of faith but the great nineteenth century theme in this novel we might say that the experience of Catholic migrants to England catches up with the nat

    Summary Paradise News 108 Paradise NewsHawaii with its sun sand pristine beaches and promises of romance is made out to be paradise on earth but is it really a facade after all—construction all over the place commercialisation with the same old McDonalds and KFC hordes of tourists in search of paradise and residents dissatisfied either with the monotony or lack of substance or the change from the “paradise” it once was This book essentially follows the journey of Bernard Walsh a former minister who is travelling with his father to help broker a reconciliation of sorts with his father’s estranged sister who is now on her deathbed His very first day finds things taking an unanticipated turn with his father meeting with an accident and landing in hospital Still the place despite not being the travel brochure kind of paradise seems to work some magic for him—he finds himself able to help his aunt and with a l

    Summary Paradise News 108 Paradise NewsWhat did I learn from Paradise NewsSeveral things Now I can nonchalantly use terms like lei pupu and moo moo in any conversation about Hawaii Not that I had or will have many Apropos don't you have the impression that Hawaii are out of fashion Personally I don't know anyone who went there And even the fact of being the accidental birthplace of Barack Obama is not helping as much as it could Why don't I see any hula dancers parading in the English streetsWhere are the pale tourists wearing Maui and Sons t shirt When the last eruc
