    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, The Beet ueen PDFFrom as early as middle school I shared library books with my mother There might have been a forerunner to a young adult section at our library but I felt most comfortable reading the leading authors of the generation who are still prominent today Other than an occasional foray to teenaged themed books I read through Allende Alvarez Tan and Erdrich Louise Erdrich today is considered the leading writer on Native American issues having inspired new generations of Native writers Her writing is complex and woven in a web of characters and themes and looking back I do not know how my still developing mind could grasp the prose Over the last few years I have made it a goal to revisit the books I read as a teen when I did not yet have the life experience to appreciate the all the books that my comprehension level said I could handle A few years ago I got to Love Medicine Erdr

    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, 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 person who capably cares for and p

    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, 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 might matter to these characters outside of their bitter ties to one another Their worlds shrink and become too small for things like hope and forgiveness; they interact with such a limited range of people And all those people are so broken that they don't even aspire to happiness They ended up seeming like caricatures of small town

    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, 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 a

    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, The Beet ueen PDFThis book was easier to follow than its predecessor Love Medicine Unfortunately it also had an incorrect family tree It drove me battyAccording to this one there's a Montana Kashpaw brother of Eli Eli is in Love Medicine along with his brother not Montana so where did he come from Then Russell is mentioned as a half brother to Eli but according to the family tree he's the son of Montana I depended heavily on the family tree in Love Medicine so I kept going back to it here and trying to understand I just drove myself crazy insteadThis story takes place alongside the events of Love Medicine Some of the characters are the same and all of the families from Love Medicine are in here It is different family members though so I don't know that it's necessary to know the prior story It gives some added depth to the world but not to the sto

    The Beet ueen eBook Ê The Beet PDF \ Paperback beet pdf, ueen epub, The Beet ebok, The Beet ueen PDFThis is of a confession about my neglect than a review of the novel When Erdrich burst on the broad stage of acclaimed writers back in the 1980's with her Love Medicine I sidestepped and have done so ever since then Published in 1986 The Beet ueen contains flashes of brilliance and attempts at it My problem was that I could not see the purpose for the multi narrative structure Time leaps narrator shifts functioned for their own sake than f
