In the meantime I have read Inferno by Dante as well, which made some of the things in this book clearer or put it imto more context than before. You know, I actually wanted to like it. The car is falling into the pit of Dante’s hell and the burn victim’s bed is in the belly of a bleached white skeleton. The Gargoyle, is a story about redemption. I was not prepared. Jul 24, Amy rated it it was amazing Shelves: The contemporary tale was particularly slow. Intelligent, sarcastic, cynical, and, toward the end, a believable change in his perspective without succumbing to maudlin sentimentality.

Also, a devil of a snake has inhabited his spine, hissing evil thoughts.

This is Davidson’s first book, and we will ,a hearing abdrew, much more about him in the coming years–he is a story teller extraordinaire. Published August 5th by Doubleday first published The redemptive nature and the well developed characters more than make up for the queasy stomach I briefly endured. He subsequently starts hallucinating and to avoid the burning arrows flying at his car drives off the road.

The problem gwrgola, one of the problems was–that I found them to be more interesting than her own stor I gave this almost pages to win me over since it has been hyped so much and everyone seems to love it, but I had to give up on it and move on.

The story is told in first person.

This book is quite graphic in it’s detail of the care of burn victims and in it’s depiction of violence, so it isn’t for the faint at heart.

Reading this book felt like sorting through a wondrous box of treasure–there are well researched intellectual prizes, laugh out loud humor advice–carefully read the menu for Christmas dinnertear jerking moments that take the breath away, love that creates a longing in the heart, physical pain that davidsno the body recoil at the reading There is beautiful imagery throughout the book, easy to picture and sometimes painful to read.

The Gargoyle by Andrew Davidson

We were given word meanings that would’ve impressed Mr. This Book is Beautiful Beyond Words!!! He’s addicted to drugs, drinks too much and all of this leads to him to a horrific car accident in which he is horribly burned over most of his body, even going so far as to burn and The unnamed narrator of Andrew Davidson’s debut novel “The Gargoyle” may be beautiful to the world but internally, his life is a mess.

Alas, this wasn’t it. I am about halfway through dwvidson and I keep making me put garyola down because I dread it ending. These things were davidso of the story, but important. Brilliantly written, engaging, unusual and an unconventional introduction to Dante Alighieri! The next time they will meet outright.

The Gargoyle

She reveals that she was a nun in 14th Century Germany when she met him. Pleasssssse, someone set my dumb ass straight. Among her tales of love stories, she also reveals that they have a “past”.


I like that word. Before the accident, the narrator was a young, handsome porn star who spent his days seducing beautiful ls, and getting high on drugs and alcohol. Or did bargola die after regular lifespans and keep getting reborn? I don’t want to say anything more because I don’t want to spoil anything.

What if, say, you’re me, and you’re about to review Andrew Davidson’s The Gargoyleaka “The Little Book That Could,” that came out of obscurity earlier this year to become the most heavily hyped new novel of the entire fall season? I went from reading a fictional story to studying a theology text book. The accident was caused by an alcohol and drug induced hallucination. Maybe they did and I just didn’t feel it.

She proceeds to tell N that she has known him for years, that he has been burned before and that they were once lovers in medieval Germany where she was a nun and he was a wounded solider. But all is not well. I will never be able to hear about a burn victim again without cringing and thinking back to this book. There were pages plural of food listed. Mar 02, El rated it it was ok Shelves: This book was grgola and executed as such!

Realmente la historia me ha sorprendido! Gargolla – yes, he can. View all 9 comments.

And what was the purpose of the gargoyles statues?
