    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFI was looking forward to reading this novel for some time I read LaRose and thought it uite good very realistic and a story that left you thinking about some important human issues But for me this story started off well and then deteriorated as it went along I am all for uirky characters but this novel is nothing but uirky characters Not a single person here that I could truly connect with; not a moment in which I wanted to nod my head and say “yes that is a situation or reaction I can relate to” I neither liked nor disliked these people and that leaves one dissatisfiedRight to the end I kept looking for something I could hold onto as a theme a current that might run between these characters but speak to us all They were all isolated for different but largely self imposed reasons They all seemed terr

    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFOne of Erdrich's best just shy of Plague of Doves and The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse It's remarkable that this is just her second Although still episodic The Beet ueen has a strong narrative flow and a great symmetry to the story that I found most satisfying Other things I loved fabulous uirky characters including three especially strong female characters I'm drawing a blank right now whether we meet Mary Adare anywhere else or Dot I think for sure the latter gorgeous poetic language the most powerful opening chapter I've read in a long time writers take note some gentle magical realism not as much as in her others but there is less spiritualityCatholicism here overall compared to her later works a ton of humour this might be one of her funniest Almost slapstick in places; very physical and dark too I clearly need to go back and read these in the order she wrote themI adore how Erdrich writes these women and men all of whom are misfits socially emotion

    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFFrom the very first page I was reminded why I added all Louise Erdrich's books to my list after reading Love Medicine the characters The people who are fabulous than 'real' the people who Erdrich has not so much created as set in motion and followed perhaps sometimes in horror as they behave in ways we and I suspect she and they did not expect The sheer exhilaration of knowing these people is a tonic to the jaded reader and knowing other people always enables me to know myself here most uncomfortablyFor example the first segments introduce Adelaide and her two children Karl and Mary Mary is a practical per

    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFThere is no one for creating rich unpredictable maddening hilarious and heartbreaking characters like Louise Erdrich To read her is to study the craft of creating uniue voices each of her characters and there are so very many in The Beet ueen takes three dimensional Technicolor shape in your mind Within The Beet ueen are familiar names and faces such that I encourage any reader to begin with Love Medicine to get the full scope of the Kashpaw history but it's not necessary to wring full satisfaction out of this novel It may seem that three stars is a low rating but I assign this within the context of the other Erdrich novels I have read The Beet ueen didn't elicit th

    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFI loved the first section of The Beet ueen I was intrigued by the characters the situations they found themselves in and their reactions to those situations; I was captivated by the luminous beauty of Erdrich's prose I loved the beginning so much in fact that I figured I couldn't help but love the rest of the book as wellBut I didn't Rather than develop and grow the characters seemed to wizen and warp as they aged Erdrich lavished attention on the minute details of 1960s cooking but as the book progresses there's so little attention to anything that mi

    PDF/EPUB Louise Erdrich ½ ½ The Beet ueen PDF ↠ The Beet ePUB ↠ beet download, ueen book, The Beet kindle, The Beet ueen PDFMy latest read is The Beet ueen by Louise Erdrich a uniue tale and I must honestly say that I'm not sure how I feel about itIt starts out by introducing us to Adelaide a kept woman who has three children to a married man When this man suddenly dies it is a catastrophe for her and one day she abandons her three children in a most unusual and surreal way Those children Karl Mary and a baby boy end up going three separate ways So in the beginning anything can happen to these three children; the future is full of both danger and potential Because of the way they were abandoned I expected the rest of the story to be something akin to a folktale such as Water for Chocolate but I was wrong The story is told by several characters in turn and all of them are people who have made very strange decisions in their lives Actually I felt that both Karl and Mary were released into the world to become blights on other people's
