    2018 CARNEGIE LONGLIST BOOK 15 20Looking back, I m changing my rating to two stars, because this book realy was not exceptional, and there were a load of things that annoyed me about itI do think that this was an interesting idea But I could kind of tell it was a debut novel It felt like there wasto give,to come, and that s okay, because first novels aren t always perfect I feel like this was maybe not as powerful as it could have been And I found it hard to separate the 2018 CARNEGIE LONGLIST BOOK 15 20Looking back, I m changing my rating to two stars, because this book realy was not exceptional, and there were a load of things that annoyed me about itI do think that this was an interesting idea But I could kind of tell it was a debut novel It felt like there wasto give,to come, and that s okay, because first novels aren t always perfect I feel like this was maybe not as powerful as it could have been And I found it hard to separate the sciency stuff from the magicy stuff It didn t really work for me personally The story is definitely quite dark Pip is a black boy in America at the highest point of racial tension This book covers topics such as racism, and the KKK I don t really know enough about this subject to comment on it, but I do think this book does a good job enlightening people to it and its horrors The book wasn t problematic in any way, and I really liked the themes of hope and the fact that not all the characters are horrible It made the book apleasant experience I do have mixed opinions on the characters, though I really love Lilabelle or is it Lilybelle and her unending positivity She is a very inspirational character I also really liked Hannah The short chapter poem things from her POV are a really nice addition to the book They were both sweet and sad I found Pip a bit flat, but the character who really rubbed me off the wrong way was Jack Morrow I don t know why I think it was maybe just the way his voice spoke in his first person narrative, but he was justreally annoyingSorry, Jack Also, I wasn t enamoured with the fact that the book kept changing POV I think I would have enjoyed the bookhad it just been in the third person all the way through Maybe that is just because I prefer third person, or maybe because I really disliked the way that Jack came across in his chapters, but it would have honestly improved the book so much for me, personally I find it irritating when a book changes POV because there always seems to be one you dislike in most cases which can dampen your enjoyment of the story And I wasn t 100% keen on the hypnotism thing Yes, I hear you saying, THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT OF THE BOOK, but I guess it is just personal taste And I lost my taste for it through the ever irritating Jack Morrow or doctor jack morrow to use his full moniker yes this is very annoying after he has said it about 10 times So yeah, this was interesting, but not exceptional But I feel like this is a case of me, not the book So no hard feelings This is a heavy book that some readers might find disturbing, so I will give you that warning before you go into it But if this sounds like your kind of thing, go for it

    Quite a combination of elements They work though A very different book, The Cure for Dreaming, combined female emancipation and hypnotism in a story of women s rights in the early 20th century.Here we are placed in the 1960s, in a time and place where Jim Crow rules, where the KKK work discreetly with violence to instil fear An orphaned black boy, Pip named after his schoolteacher m

    This book is very different from most of the others, and I cant believe it myself but I am almost pitying Erwin, for his mental instability However that does not mean in any way I pity him, I pity his family, I pity his victims And I feel like this book is pitiful Jack, or Doctor Jack Morrow to use his full moniker, starts off being very funny, and very enjoyable to listen to I didn

    When Pip is bought and paid for at an orphanage, he is worried for his future But the worn, skinny old man called Mr Zachary who adopts him seems kind enough on the long drive back to his farm, as he explains what he wants Pip to do Since Pip was the only boy who could read at the orphanage, he was the perfect candidate to read to Zachary s bed ridden wife Lillybelle.Pip is shocked whe

    Set in the Deep South of the American 1960 s, a black orphan boy, a mute Native American servant girl and an Irish Neurology professor are an unlikely squad In a society overwhelmed by prejudice, they must employ all of their courage, cunning and wit to free themselves from their oppressors.This book is amazing Here at Book Box Club we loved it so much we featured it in our Freedom Squa

    A powerful book If I d had time to read it in one session I would have done so It was interesting to read that the author s family, Jews from Persia who fled the country as refugees from racist policies in the 17th century, came from the town of Shushan Susa where the story of Esther, the heroine who saved her people from the racist vizier Haman, is set Anyway, this and his father s expe

    I am not able to give this book a rating, as I didn t finish it However, from the parts I did read I can tell you It is well written Fx I sometimes struggle when writers decide to write out drawls and accents, but in this book it was just alright The Main Characters are all really interesting Every one from the Caucasian Irish Neurology Professor, to the Black Orphan teenager, and the Mut

    I think this probably could have been a good story, but it s so badly written It s disjointed and sloppy It even changes tense for a chapter The lessons it seeks to teach are very heavy handed, and all it does is cheapen the writing Still, my biggest problem is Jack Not only is he annoying as hell, but the book beats you over the head with his Irishness, but it s clear that very little res
