I've just finished February and enjoyed it very much. The writing style really suits the story. It is sparse, yet deep. I loved the way two totally different conversations could be happening at the same time because of the way Ms. Moore portrayed what her characters are feeling as well as doing.
I'm not as impressed by The Age of Hope but maybe it will grow on me.
Age of Hope paints a picture of a woman, and in doing so, provides a picture of what family life was like for a generation of women. Very well written.
Now I'm on to read Indian Horse next. 2 down 3 to go!
My vote would have to go to Indian Horse. It is so reflective of Canadian life.
In 1982, an oil rig sank off the coast of Newfoundland. This book follows Helen, now a young widow, as her husband, Cal, had been working on the oil rig. Helen is left to care for four children.
It wasn’t a boring story, but the book flipped all over the place in time, mostly between 2008 and other years, looking back. Each section did introduce the year, but it was really all over the place, I thought. I didn’t care about characters, and I didn’t believe the outcome of John’s (John is one of Helen’s children, an adult in 2008) storyline. Also, what is wrong with using quotation marks?
