Conhecimento Comum



British Author Challenge June 2022: Jackie Kay & E. F. Benson em 75 Books Challenge for 2022 (Agosto 2022)


I loved it. I will listen to it again and I highly recommend it. If you're someone who enjoys audio books, I suggest that route.

Here's a link to a more complete review but it says pretty much the same thing.

Promising plot waylaid by too much introspection excusing all the years of lies.

For no good reason, trumpeterJoss Moody and Millie drop their major betrayal on their adopted son, Colman.
Readers may well wish he just took the richly well deserved money for the book and relaxed into a new life.
Sophie Stone's exploitation of his grief translates into a release from his desire for revenge.

The many perspectives of Moody's death are pretty depressing, with Big Red the outstanding character.

While we wonder why Joss never retuned to fully care for his aging Mother,
we may still hope that Colman goes back to help her instead of placating his Mother .

Readers will want to hear that storybook TRUMPET play!!!

Descriptions of house and dark and land and sea and moon and wind in Torr are compelling.

Interesting I need to listen to her songs
MiriamL | Nov 24, 2021 |
This collection of poems has a number that feature relationship breakdown—most of them are devastating in a simple turn of a phrase. Some poems explore the voice's relationship with her father and her African heritage.
