    read The Final Passage mobi  Paperback The Final Passage35Utterly depressing but at the same time very human There's no doubt that Caryl Phillips is a gifted writer It took me a couple of pages to get used to the narrative style because the author started the story right at the beginning of the final passage But I was soon catching up with the story and the protagonist's sufferingsWhy Leila wanted to marry Michael is an absolute mystery to me He didn't care for her at all Disaster was bound to happen Did Leila behave the way she did because her mom was emotionally distant? Does that explain why she didn't know how to assess other people's feelings towards her?Another theme dealt with in this book is immigration 9 months ago I moved to a different country so I could totally relate to the protagonist's feelings and thoughts was it right to move away or should I have stayed? I thought the ending was good even though it was uite open and some readers may be annoyed that there's not a defi

    read The Final Passage mobi  Paperback The Final PassageTell each other not the readerThe Final Passage is a thoroughly engrossing story encapsulating the fragility of a dream and the decision to mature out of it not just for one’s self but for the people one holds dear There are so many heart wrenching scenes where characters could open their hearts and express emotion but instead their tightly guarded thoughts are only communicated to the reader not each other so this is a record of the frustrations of life and fear that has no place to dissipate so it builds up and takes over cutting off everything else that could exist I hated this story but loved the author’s depiction of it I will look up his other books now

    read The Final Passage mobi  Paperback The Final PassageI would like to make it clear that I thought this book was well written I enjoyed the imagery as well as Phillips' narrative style I also enjoyed Bradeth and Millie and was sad that I did not get to spend time with them I gave this book two stars only because it left me feeling depressed While I sympathized with Leila's situation distant mother absent husband foreign land I could not help but wish she would have tried a little to stand up for herself Granted this is set in the late 50s and I have no frame of reference as to what it was like to be a West Indies woman living in London I think I will try to give this book another go at a later date and see if I can find something new between the pages

    read The Final Passage mobi  Paperback The Final PassageVery well written but just so bleak I kept wanting to shake several of the characters they are just so human so completely flawed

    read The Final Passage mobi  Paperback The Final Passage#33 Saint Kitts and Nevis West Indies This is the story of Leila a young woman emigrating from a little Caribbean island to England with her child and her poor excuse for a husband The first part of the book is about the life on the island and the reasons she decided to leave her home In the second part she's trying to adapt to her life in London The story is beautifully written and getting Leila's point of view was very interesting It is also depressing as she learns that poverty may even be harder in a country so different from hers In the end it all comes down to the destructive impact of colonization
