Nightwoods Characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Before the children Luce was content with the reimbursements of the rich Appalachian lands I was disappointed over how little this one sticks in my mind a month after reading it That I felt no urge to say something about it at its completion is another personal testament The art of Frazier s language is alive as is his wonderful skills at conveying a sense of place here Appalachian North Carolina Unlike Cold Mountain and Thirteen Moons the setting is contemporary But through a bit of magic on the part of the omniscient narrator there is a sense of ancient mythic forces at play in the tale Luce is a caretaker of a remote run down lodge on a lake who has taken custody of her sister s two young kids after she is murdered by her husband The children are so traumatized they no longer speak to adults have a limited sense of right and wrong and a dangerous love of the power of fire She has her hands full with the godlike task of teaching them to become human and find their voices again She barely has any voice any herself a victim of a violent crime that did not find justice Fortunately the new owner of the lodge Stubblefield arrives on the scene having moved back to the area to oversee his inherited properties When Luce s murderer beats his case the kids as witnesses to his crime become his targets This force of pure evil meets with the resilient resources of the apparently weak provisional family Much action takes place in the deep dark woods as if nature itself and the spirits of Native Americans are witnesses to the drama at play There is some of the Gothic feel of John Connolly at play but without the usual action heroes Just a bit too rich for my blood Sarah of the Moon evil meets with the resilient resources of the apparently weak provisional family Much action takes place in the deep dark woods as if nature itself and the spirits of Native Americans are witnesses to the drama at play There is some of the Gothic feel of John Connolly at play but without the usual action heroes Just a bit too rich for my blood

Nightwoods Characters ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Dren changes everything cracking open her solitary life in difficult hopeful dangerous way I love Charles Frazier Cold Mountain the novel was amazing Forget the movie Thirteen Moons was under appreciated because Cold Mountain was so huge He just gets to something in his characters that no one else does in uite the same way Possibly it is a Southern thing but also it is just purely great writing from a guy who has the soul of a poet Both of the previous novels were historical Civil War and Trail of Tears but I don t think it was from history that he derived his power as a writer but from the depth and breadth of his characterizations and his ability to bring the natural world surrounding those characters so vividly to life Though Nightwoods takes place in the 1960s he has lost none of that powerLit and Lola Lit is that kind of soldier who never moves on World War II and its grueling mix of boredom discomfort and violence have never been matched since then for Lit not to mention the uality of the drugs available Lola is the teen bride and mother who would rather drink party and fight with her husband than raise babiesLuce and Lily The daughters of these two who were abandoned by their mother and neglected by their father who grew up destined to be harmed by menSuch potential caricatures of dysfunctional life take on roles suitable for a parable in the hands of Frazier When Lily s husband Bud a character straight out of Flannery O Connor territory kills her in cold blood the state dumps Lily s fraternal twin youngsters on Luce These kids have obvious signs of abuse something to which Luce is no stranger She herself is living practically like a hermit in a rundown former summer lodge as a nominal caretaker wanting nothing than to be left alone When she learns that Bud has been acuitted of the murder she knows such will not be her destinyCharles Frazier takes a good half of the novel setting this up but every few pages he drops in another startling fact By the time it becomes clear that Bud is the psychopath bent on ruining Luce s entire family I was so wrought up and unbalanced there was nothing left to do but read on never knowing who would live and who would dieThe problem then was that Frazier s writing is so fine it needs to be savored These people are as uniue as all human beings are not one of them can be wholly admired or detested The mountains the weather the flora close around the story as much a part of the tale as any other aspect And those kids my goodnessThe uestion in all of Charles Frazier s novels has to do with how our humanity to others can possibly survive when one insanely evil person can ruin it for everyone around him Bud was made to go to church as a child where his natural born criminal instincts left him open to the message that the sacred shedding of blood mattered above all else The proffered answer in Nightwoods is that shared blood can redeem a lost soul now and then but not always and not for good Vargens lilla lamm everything cracking open her solitary life in difficult hopeful dangerous way I love Charles Frazier
