Cuốn sách rất mạnh mẽ theo ý kiến của tôi. Đó là về cậu bé bị lôi ra trại tập trung. Xem những gì đấu tranh này mang lại cho anh ta khi bạn đọc nó. Tôi rất muốn giới thiệu nó cho mọi người ở mọi lứa tuổi miễn là họ có thể đọc. Họ chắc chắn sẽ thích nó.
An easy fun read - I picked the twist fairly early on, but probably because I've seen it so many times before. Her characters are interesting, and I would have liked to spend more time with them, as the ending seemed a little bit hurried, as well as not quite connected with the main part of the story. Recommended for girls who want their princesess to be more empowered and independent.
Bishop Latour looks back on his life... the book is drenched in a clear, golden light, probably very similar to the light in New Mexico. Lawrence Weschler recently observed that there is a Willa Cather resurgence going on. It makes sense. Cather has a talent for arc--she compresses an incredible range of emotion, a whole short story, into a memory that takes up two paragraphs. There are also longer stories embedded within the narrative--a character will just pause to recount something, and that vignette will stay in your mind forever and if you're not careful, you'll forget where you read it and you might think it came from the most perfectly-crafted dream you ever had. Read My Antonia as well--the story of the wolves happened to me as I describe above. Cather's pacing is superb. I enjoyed the moments of reflection and pause in this book even more than the action.
