    There are a hundred ways to make a man into a bomb But can a bomb become a person I really loved this book I received it as a first reads giveaway and am providing an honest review I read it in small pieces, a chapter or two each night Each chapter was a gem I saw that some people consider this book to be magical realism, but I don t think that s the right term for it Magical realism is about the blurring of the line between imagination and reality and argues that what we imagine is just as real as anything else In most MR books, though, there is someone doing the imagining FMLB is much existential If we really need to categorize this book, let s call it an allegory Fat Man and Little Boy are the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and in this story they take on lives of their own They become people, brothers, who must make their way out of the wreckage of Japan and into the further consequences of their creation All of us live with the consequences of having been made, and none of us had any choice in the matter The fathers of these bombs gave them human names, if impersonal ones Language is funny this way We can t help but picture things that are named If the universal pronoun is he, then those who read he on the page will picture someone male, or at least will fail to picture someone female, x ing half the race out of the universal A little boy is different from a fat man...

    I won this in a First Reads Giveaway Thank You Oh yes, this was the novel that took me way too long to finish, longer than any book below 600 pages I shouldn t be ashamed of it, but this is usually the type of book that I would devour in two weeks Those who are college students, readers, and bloggers, you would probably know that those gaps of silence are usually because it s a rough semester This was a rough novel, with tiny patches of softness, little dots of hope in the middle of something wide and hard, something dark and dreary Now that metaphor crap is out of the way, lets put a synopsis If I try to write it on my own, it would be a disaster.Two bombs over Japan Two shells One called Little Boy, one called Fat Man Three days apart The one implicit in the other Brothers.As you can already tell, this is going to be one weird trip, it takes place in a world that seems to be so off kilter in its sanity Nobody seems to know why these guys exist and why they have all these weird quirks, such as not having real ...

    I struggled to assign meanings to characters and events in Fat Man and Little Boy, all the while aware that attempting to do so was wrong headed and futile Little Boy and Fat Man, the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atom bombs, born as human brothers at the moment of their detonations, three days apart Sure Extinguished Japanese souls attempting to be reborn, literally under the brothers feet Okay But what am I to make of the policemen, the short and the tall one What do they represent And for that matter why France, why Masumi, why Rosie and Magnolia and Able and Baker What if this were a straight novel about odd, parentless, horribly filthy brothers who move from wartime Japan to post war France, find a family and gradually become functioning humans, then take a short vacation in Hollywood It wouldn t pass muster It wouldn t be interesting It wouldn t justify its own existence The conceit of atomic bombs exploding and being born as human brothers is what makes this novel worth reading But where is Meginnis going with this conceit Questions upon questions Fat Man lives with guilt, but why doesn t Little Boy Or are Little Boy s physical failings the manifestation of guilt The profuse life Fat Man and Little Boy spread about them is at...

    Fat Man and Little Boy is going on the shortlist of the best books that I have read in 2014 It is difficult to believe that the novel is Mike Meginnis debut, for it is a rather stunning first in its language, story, and plot I congratulated Mr Meginnis at the publisher s table in the Brooklyn Book Festival just a few weeks ago for being the proud author of a published book, but hearty congratulations are in order in view of the contents of his novel.The plot of Fat Man and Little Boy is, among other things, surreal Not that the events that take place are unbelievable, for except for the bombs being born onto Earth as human beings, most of what takes place is normal life like stuff that has been the subject of many works of fiction But there is a pervasive feeling of disbelief that stems from the disbelief that such atrocities as in so many indiscriminately obliterated into charred dust by two atom bombs indeed took place, a feeling that thinly covers the prose as if to muffle it, as if to mute its impact, punctuated only by the uncommon moments of sharp acknowledgement of guilt and perversion and the passing of time It is this disbelief that Meginnis weaves into every turn of event, that seeps out of every character one way or another, that in its persistence...

  5. Jessica Smith Jessica Smith says:

    Truly unique in it s story line, Fat Man And Little Boy takes a subject that we all know something about and turns it into that just history, it makes it relatable on a human level, letting the reader inside the minds and feelings of the two humanized brother bombs.The two atom bombs dropped on Japan become born into human for upon their landing They are transformed into exactly what they sound like a fat man and a little boy The two brothers know who they are, how they were made, and most importantly what they ve done As they travel together they are forced to witness the aftermath caused by their birth and the repercussions it s had on the Japanese people Poignant and at times incredibly graphic some of it was a little much for me However, that s what makes a good read in ...

  6. Jeanette Jeanette says:

    This was an incredibly imaginative novel The two brother bombs try to live in the world after their explosions This alternate world not so far from reality that we forget the sadness, anxiety, devastation of war is intriguing I was captivated throughout.This was a Goodreads First Reads.

  7. Madolyn R. Madolyn R. says:

    Definitely one of the interesting and unique books I ve ever read It s hard for me to describe how I feel about this book.just read it If you like magical paranormal Maybe this fits mixed with realism, read it.

  8. P.S. Winn P.S. Winn says:

    Take a step into history and never forget, lest we do something like ths again extraordinary journey to the past and how our world changed,

  9. Jonathan Gruber Jonathan Gruber says:

    interesting premise but didn t do enough with it I gave up after 100 pages

  10. Sarah-Hope Sarah-Hope says:

    Imagine that each of the two atomic bombs the U.S dropped on Japan during World War II begat a human being or a being near human upon impact That s the premise behind Mike Meginnis s Fat Man and Little Boy Yes, Fat Man he changes his name to John is fat and, yes, Little Boy later Matthew is little In an ironic touch, however, Little Boy is the big brother, born three days before Fat Man.Fat Man and Little Boy travel, first across Japan, later about the world, trying to figure out who they are Each remembers coming into being during an explosion, but has very little sense of self beyond that Strange things happen where they travel women and animals conceive and give birth in a matter of weeks, sometimes to healthy offspring, sometimes to deformed or incomplete creatures strange molds grow at an unnatural rate wherever they are.This concept is brilliant, but I enjoyed the book less than I thought I would The prose is crisp, but I found I couldn t stay engaged eno...
