    One thought on “Golf Interrupted”

    1. Golf Interrupted is as much a philosophical novella as a police mystery, with an unlikely cast of characters There is a foursome of golfers who play a round on the clifftop links course on Desolation Point Sebastian, a forensic psychiatrist and expert in hostage negotiations, Brian, the Irish dentist, Stefan, a professor of moral philosophy who lectures and publishes on death, suicide and euthanasia, and the Rabbi whose main occupation seems to be burying his congregation s Holocaust survivors T [...]

    2. Such an interesting premise a day told over a round of golf with the constant companion of Donnie the pelican With echoes of Zen the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, this uses golf as a lens through which the author asks us to meditate with him on life, loss healing There s no mistaking the author s love of the sport on these pages, but it s a psychologist s view rather than a sports fan Surprising and inspiring.

    3. A Rabbi, a forensic psychiatrist, a philosopher and a dentist walked onto a golf course I was worried when i saw the title because i m not a golfer I don t understand the frustrations of a game that could spoil a good walk But a friend gave me a copy When i started reading, i was greatly relieved because i realised the book is about the interruptions and less about the golf It s about setting out to do one thing, and what actually happens along the way It is about life, death, and rebelling ag [...]

    4. Golf Interrupted what can I say Do yourself a favour, and get a copy It was an original concept, and I must say, I wasn t sure if it was my cup of tea golf is not my thing , but after reading it, I am recommending it to all The authors passion was evident, the characters were lively and well rounded and the book was highly thought provoking and honestly surprising Add it to your list NOW

    5. Golf Interrupted is a great read This is a creative and original piece of work with both realist and absurdist elements The context for this story is an attempted terrorist attack and the police response to it, and the novela examines the various central characters involved in one way or another, and what brought each of them there Deftly combining the personal with the political, this piece of writing explores themes of loss and grief, hope and and despair, and healing and redemption It s both [...]

    6. I enjoyed reading about the characters in this book It was intriuging and even though I am not a golfing fan, I wanted to keep reading Pick it up and have a read of Golf Interrupted

    7. I can say that golf is definitely not my game, I thought it was just hitting a white ball with a stick I was mistaken Golf is really a metaphor for coping with the ups and downs of life and the importance of the people we choose to accompany us on the journey.a great read
