    Hardcoverñ The Lacuna PDF EPUB ↠ lacuna download, The Lacuna MOBI The Lacuna is really two books One the latter is uite engaging with a well written historical perspective emotional content a bit of action The other is an overlong back story very light on involvement written as if the author was watching the events and characters from behind a cloud Considering that the stable of characters includes Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo it takes some effort to make them dull Barbara Kingsolver image from OfficeOnlinecom The Lacuna is Kingsolver’s attempt at a grand historical novel She begins in 1929 in Mexico introducing Harrison William Shepherd son of an American father and a Mexican mother as a young lad dragged along by mom to live with her boyfriend on an island off the Mexican coast We follow him through adolescence through his association with Diego Rivera Frida Kahlo Leon Trotsky and a host of lesser characters He connects briefly with his father in Washington DC and

    Hardcoverñ The Lacuna PDF EPUB ↠ lacuna download, The Lacuna MOBII had the privilege of listening to Kingsolver read this aloud as well as reading the printI love her Her voice and her style of narration her perfectly articulated words and sounds all captivated me instantly Hearing VB's voice as Kingsolver intended it is what made me want to just hug Violet Brown The characters were so lovable even though I'd never want to hang out with Harrison or Violet in real life but Trotsky definitelyI have heard people say that this book had a political agenda I have to disagree I believe that this novel although centered around politics is about humans while politics never seem to be This novel did not turn me into a socialist a communist an anti communist or a hater of capitalism but it did make me want to embrace all kinds of people It made me yearn to learn about and to listen to people I don't know and especially those that I think I know about Because I don't really The best part about someone is that which you don't know Thinking about that recurrin

    Hardcoverñ The Lacuna PDF EPUB ↠ lacuna download, The Lacuna MOBIPlaced in context with Kingsolver's other books this is essentially worthless She turns Freida Kahlo into the most magical pixie dream girl ever and gives us a main character so thoroughly desexed and generally grey that one sort of imagines him as a Ken doll completely generic and non threating in every possible way And I KNOW that's sort of the point of the main character but still he is pretty much one of the least enjoyable protagonists I've ever read since all you do is spend time with his guilt and boring unhappiness Additionally and you may not have known this brace yourselves but the House Un American Activities Committee was BAD NOOOooooooo I've blown your mind Also bad newspapers and media Good Trotsky and NOTHING ELSE Especially Americans unless you are a hillperson I do admire how with the Violet Brown character Kingsolver has reconfigured the Noble Sava
