    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBThis was a masterful yarn about a complex relationship between mother and daughter It was about the loss of self the journey of finding oneself and most importantly the resilience of the human spirit This wasn't a tale of any ordinary bond between mother and daughter this was a story of the severe dysfunction that occurs when a mother Ingrid is imprisoned for murder and

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBDark depressing disturbing and so beautiful When the author described the August summer heat I felt it like hot breath on my neck I fell in love with Ingrid and her beauty and ideas of the world Then I became Astrid and I felt how much she loved her and how bad it hurt to also hate her but hate Ingrid I did I would walk away from long reading sessions feeling hardened and detached It's not an easy read but I find literature that can make me feel so strongly well

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBThis is Astrid’s storyWe meet her first when she is twelve and in Ingrid’s her mother careIngrid is a woman of such rare unearthly beauty as to be most likely found in dreams Fitch describes her through Astrid’s eyes gradually poetically using very sparse language as the story unfolds with words that sing the pages glistening with the image reflected from her eyes The Santa Anas blew in hot from the desert shrivelling the last of the spring grass into whiskers of pale straw Only the oleanders thrived their delicate poisonous blossoms t

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBI have many thoughts that I'm having trouble putting into words Before reading the final chapter of the book I had to put it down lean my head back against the couch and think about the experience I've had while reading this book Astrid's journey her development from girl to woman is remarkably crafted Fitch's writing paints the arid desert and mountain brush in such fine detail Atmospherically this story was superb I was totally immersed in the story in the physical spaces that Astrid inhabits through her 390 page life My only ualm was that I wish there had been a bit explanation from her mother's perspective But that final interaction in the prison wow Just wow It took my breath away If you're struggling to get into this book for the first one or two hundred pages just keep going It's completely worth it

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBthis is a horrifying book not necessarily for the story's content which IS horrifying but for it's plot execution characterization and particularly its overcooked writing some observations 1 astrid the novel's protagonist a fourteen year old girl is a thoroughly contradictory character some people have written that astrid is not your 'average' teenage girl and that she is 'gifted' if she were such a girl i would expect much of her i'm not a psychologist nor have i ever been shot but i suspect any fourteen year old girl who's mother was sent to prison for murder who offered herself sexually to a man three times her age is

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBThere must be a reason why I've been able to recall many of the books I've read over the years but that it took me until one of my most restless and procrastibatory nights in front of the blank Word doc to dredge this one up from the recesses of memory even though I read it within the past year or twoI'm pretty sure I know what that reason is too it's because on some level I'm embarrassed that I read this book and that I actually really liked itI'm pretty sure I know where that embarrassment

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBAfter reading her scorching short story in Los Angeles Noir I smoked a cigarette I don't smoke napped and reached for a novel by Janet Fitch Round 2 is White Oleander which Oprah's Book Club made a sweepstakes winner at the time of its publication in 1999 and for good reason This is fiction at its most intoxicating with boozy prose but also beautifully woven narrative without a single lull in story or a character who fails to make a mark Its vision and breadth reminded me of W Somerset Maugham's Of Human Bondage with a teenage girl in Los Angeles surviving a s

    Kindle White Oleander Kindle ↠ ↠ bunatime.co white book, oleander ebok, White Oleander ePUBI am appalled by the worldview presented in this book Yet the circumstances surrounding Ingrid a poetess who goes to prison for murder are so artificialI don't want to suirm when I'm reading and I read for pleasure Is there a market for books like this? Of course there is And I've got nothing against people who like this book But should they lap it up like it's licorice?The book is also about foster homes and what can go wrong I just don't think that the author should be so fake in her plotting in an attempt to fake verisimilitude I did like it on some levelThis book is similar to books by Khaled Hosseini It's a compliment but at the same time a denial
