    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBII'm new to Alice Hoffman and starting out with her lesser known books This was the perfect book to read early on It's a series of linked short stories taking place in the town of Blackwell Massachusetts over a span of 300 years A few of the stories were so fascinating I wanted to hear From only a few of Hoffman's books I can see the magical realism is strong which I love I'm not sure why but when I listen toread Hoffman's

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIWriters have this hankering to create fictional landscapes and populate them with characters who cut across narratives Maruez's Macondo Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County and Hardy's Wessex are examples which readily spring to mind Over the course of many stories these countries of the imagination take on a life of their own and will generate their own myths histories and legends living on even after their creators are no as Lovecraft's Chthulu Mythos does In this book of collected short stories Alice Hoffman creates her own landscape of the mind the town of Blackwell Massachusetts hi

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIWhile I enjoyed each individual story the 2 star rating comes mostly from the frustration I had due to the fact that the stories were just far apart enough in time and with just similar enough names given names as well as surnames that I was never sure who was related to whom and what the lineage was Two things that could have helped with this wou

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIDue to my busy schedule I often read right before I go to bed So for me the mark of a good book is one that I pick up about half an hour before bedtime and refuse to put down until my eyes are absolutely closing with fatigue The Red Garden is such a book It's magical whimsical powerful Although the stories making up a patchwork history of Blackwell MA are set in different times with mostly different casts of characters you can trace the common themes and fami

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIMost reviews of The Red Garden see it as a series of linked stories covering the history of small Blackwell MA aka Bearville from its founding in 1750 to almost the present day 1990s I began reading the book this way but it started to feel repetitious The stories are too tenuously connected to be read as a novel like series of linked stories The sister of a character in one story may appear on the fringes of the next but the significance is hard to findI enjoyed the book as I began to read it as a piece of experimental fiction a Tarot deck of about a dozen characters—human or not—that Hoffmann continually reshuffles and deals into new configurations To witThe Red Haired WomanGirlThe Solitary ManLost BoyThe LoverThe OutsiderThe NewcomerThe BearThe DogThe Eel RiverThe Apple TreeThe MeadowThe MuseumThe Red Garden aka the Private GraveThe Red

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIMy low rating of this book probably stems from having just read Jhumpa Lahiri’s beautiful and haunting short stories The Red Garden is also broken into stories connected through a town’s lineage with characters appearing at different ages in different stories For some reason I could not connect with this book at all While her writing style was appealing and easy to listen to the plot and characters felt distant and a little forced I had a hard time wrapping my bra

    eBook Alice Hoffman ☆ The Red Garden Kindle Ò The Red Kindle - ☆ garden kindle, The Red epub, The Red Garden MOBIDid not finish DNF 17%It's always so sad to DNF a book by one of your favorite authors But I just couldn't get into this one at all I've been trying to make myself read it since July and it's October Let's face it it's just not working outI think the reason I couldn't get into it is the same reason I find it hard to read short stories I get used to the character and bam they're gone This was just like that Okay so maybe she does weave a bigger tale about the whole town through the characters but I'm not okay with 5% of the book per character and then never seeing them again It's too little I can't get invested at all
