motion in the winter (Pablo D'Stair)
Literary Fitcion. I am a huge fan of Pablo D'Stair and I truly loved this current book. One man wonders , What if someone who is no one just disappears. Would anyone look for him? What if that someone was himself. What if he were the one to (try) to find that someone.Or what if he were to just disappear. What if one line on a slip of paper, I killed a man, appeared. Would there be an investigation? Would anyone care? Take a dark, intense and fascinating journe

Motion in the Winter by Pablo D’Stair

Stream of consciousness is a style of writing that reveals the character’s thoughts and feelings as they develop. It’s not a style of writing I have ever enjoyed and Motion in the Winter certainly didn’t do anything to change my mind. I had a hard time getting into the book, because there really isn’t a plot or storyline. It’s just a nameless character rambling for 120 pages about being known versus being unknown.

I had a really hard time reading this book. I

An exhaustive and unpleasant look into the manic thought processes of a nameless, homeless vagabond as he attempts to analyze the nature of existence and of being a "nobody." His thoughts are uncontrolled by reason and he is without comforting circumstances or prospects. He spends his life in pointlessly tiresome wandering. As the title suggests, there is a disconsolate winter landscape. In the beginning, I felt it had a reminiscent odor of "The Stranger" by Albert Camus and was concerned that t ...more

“You can’t disappear if you basically already have without even trying.” is the first line of "Motion in the Winter" by Pablo D’Stair, setting the stage for how a mind wanders when left to its own devises while pondering the question “What if?”

Have you ever thought of yourself as a quasi detective? Motion in the Winter finds the narrator thinking about how his life is basically one of an unknown, invisible person, like so many others. Through his inquisitive thoughts on the invisibility of an un

This book really made me think some very deep thoughts, Pablo, about what makes us matter to someone else..what makes us real. It's viscerally philosophical with many mentionable lines. I found I often had to re-read sections to get the gist of what you were saying. I had to almost slowly digest what this character's thought process was. It has the resonating feel that all your books do of someone who slowly turns to a madness they bring about to themselves. Within this story, I see some really ...more
