    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingI received a copy of Howard Axelrod's The Point of Vanishing from LT's Early Reviewers program It was a book I found both boring and infuriating Axelrod a privileged guy attending Harvard loses the sight in one of his eyes at a pickup basketball game He seems to feel this is incredibly tragic and seems to have massive trouble adjusting to this despite the fact he can still read drive and uh see I have a friend who became completely blind as an adult and is off climbing Kilimanjaro at this moment it's hard to muster up a ton of sympathy for Axelrod here I get he had to make a huge adjustment

    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingThe Point of Vanishing is a very beautifully written memoir so because it's a debut  I was glad to have won a copy from LibraryThing  just  to experience Axelrod's  way with words; his vivid descriptions of nature and of his feelings are really done exuisitely  But I didn't at first get the point of the vanishing that is  Why did he do what he did?  Plus he didn't really vanish into solitude as the title suggests but house sat in a Vermont cabin in the woods for a couple of years  He still saw a few people and still talked on the phone occasionally  That's not true solitude but it certainly gave him much time for reflection and appreciating the beauty around him without the distractions of tv cell phones and computersThe why at first glance was the author's tragic sports accident that caused blindness in one eye during his college years But the author said he didn'

    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingThe perfect line to encapsulate Howard Axelrod’s The Point of Vanishing is actually a line from Fight Club “ “It's only after we've lost everything that we're free to do anything” The Point of Vanishing splits its narrative between Howard’s final year at Harvard and his move into a secluded cabin deep in the Vermont woods Axelrod finds himself uickly becoming acclimated to his new lifestyle though profoundly unable to shake his past Vivid portraits of the natural beauty surrounding the cabin are interjected with visceral memories of the freak accident that robbed him of half his eyesight during a pickup basketball game The author ruminates on lost loves familial drama and his acclimation to a world that has suddenly lost its

    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingI'm a sucker for reflections rendered through solitude Maybe because I spend a lot of time in my head so it feels familiar Maybe because I fantasize about truly experiencing solitude though I can't do than a couple of days hiking on my own But also because what is rendered strikes me as the only kind of truth worth reflecting on After a few months of solitary living in

    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingFull disclosure I've taken a class with Howard as my instructor That being said I wasn't sure what to expect from his book He hadn't talked about it much to our class so I was going in not totally clear on what I'd be reading Thankfully it includes one of my favorite places Vermont and is written as a memoir which is my favorite genreHow does one write a memoir about solitude though when there's very little action or tension? You write something like The Point of Vanishing character realizations combined with sharp prose The descriptions are lush and full giving wonderful images of the surroundings whether it be Vermont Boston or visiting his family in New York What drives the book is how well written it is It's deserving of a re read just for the prose The exploration of Howard's life during this time has him asking many uestions of himself but I still had my share of uestions I wanted answered after reading The Point of Vanishing I was curious as to what an avera

    FREE DOC Ã READER The Point of Vanishing Kindle Edition The Point of VanishingI read The Point of Vanishing while staying in a remote cottage with a wood burning stove very similar to the one Axelrod describes It should have been perfect for my contemplative mood and parts of it were yet it was hard to ignore the very first world problem ness of it all Yes losing an eye sucked As a very nearsighted person thanks reading who has had a contact go off center at inopportune times I can sympathize to a certain degree with the disorientation of seeing from just one eye But to spend two years trying to find internal euilibrium again seems a bit indulgent It probably doesn't help that I recently read naturalist Bernd Heinrich's A Year in the Maine Woods which has both actual hardship I
