    Hardcover ☆ Touch PDF/EPUB à touch mobile, Touch KindleA very good bookAlexi Zentner’s 2012 short novel about four generations of a family in western Canada in the late 1800s reminded me of a northern One Hundred Years of Solitude While it does not have the scope or breadth of Gabriel Garcia Marquez’ masterpiece Zentner’s inspired prose was a great pleasure to readMost striking is Zentner’s use of magic realism with the raw edges of paranormal fantasy as he introduces elements of Inuit myth and legend into his frontier tale With language setting and themes reminiscent of early Jack London and Algernon Blackwood Zentner has crafted a ta

    Hardcover ☆ Touch PDF/EPUB à touch mobile, Touch KindleIt's funny I usually start out my reviews with a short little blurb of my own just rehashing the particulars of the story With 'Touch' though this story was so all over the place that I can't adequately explain it's basis it simply eludes me The official summary feels deceiving and makes it sound ripe with potential but it never lived up it that's for sure I truly feel as if I've been hoodwinked I blame the stunning cover shakes fist But honestly I recall going through this magical realism stage and added practically every book tagged as such This is one of them I'm thinking that if the author isn't Sarah Addison Allen then I apparently don't care much for magical realism It should be said that according to the Reading Group Discussion questions yeah I read them in hopes that

    Hardcover ☆ Touch PDF/EPUB à touch mobile, Touch KindleTouch is the sort of novel that Salman Rushdie might have produced if he'd been raised in the Canadian wilderness rather than India and England Alexi Zentner's descriptive writing is as evocative and passionate as Rushdie's Both authors' stories are rooted in the real world but contain

    Hardcover ☆ Touch PDF/EPUB à touch mobile, Touch KindleExcellent protrayal of what it must have been like for the first of the European immigrants to move to the further reaches of Western Canada during the times of the several gold rushes It's not about the populating of the land It's not about the finding of gold It's about the relationship of three generations of a family with an extremely harsh deadly environment and the spirits and creatures of an unknown land It's a very original style of telling that I have a hard time classifying It has elements of paranormal or perhaps fantasy or perhaps myth or perhaps one of a couple other categories but I didn't feel like it fit anywhere Those elements were important parts of the telling and important parts of the lives of the people but they weren't focal points at all They also didn't seem so paranormal or fantastical in context They seemed a tr

    Hardcover ☆ Touch PDF/EPUB à touch mobile, Touch KindleI won this book through the Goodreads giveaway and I absolutely adored it I'm not going to lie I consider a lot of Canadian fiction to be excessively drab and depressing seemingly for the sake of it but this was a breath of fresh air Certainly there are depressing parts to this story but I never felt overwhelmed by themI particularly enjoyed the mystical aspect of the book There are a lot of creatures from Native AmericanCanadian folklore scattered throughout the narrative and I think it's important that someone writes about these things Everyone knows about the Greek and Norse gods but North American mythology is someth
