    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenDNF page 106I tried guys I really did But at just over 100 pages the story still didn’t grab me Which is a shame because I’ve read some really thoughtful reviews of this book that made me interested in the first place The thing was that I found this just to be too rambly and depressing not to mention that the story still wasn’t going anywhere at nearly 40% inHonestly there are only so many animal and child deaths I can read about in a book before I put it down I get that it’s a part of frontier life but come on Alice Hoffman It just seemed like each chapter was littered with some kind of tragedy to an innocentThen Johnny Appleseed just rolls through town and plants than jus

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenI'm new to Alice Hoffman and starting out with her lesser known books This was the perfect book to read early on It's a series of linked short stories taking place in the town of Blackwell Massachusetts over a span of 300 years A few of the stories were so fascinating I wanted to hear From only a few of Hoffman's books I can see the magical realism is strong which I love I'm not sure why but when I listen toread Hoffman's books I think of books by Sarah Addison Allen Both drip in magical realism I find Allen's books to

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenWriters have this hankering to create fictional landscapes and populate them with characters who cut across narratives Maruez's Macondo Faulkner's Yoknapatawpha County and Hardy's Wessex are examples which readily spring to mind Over the course of many stories these countries of the imagination take on a life of their own and will generate their own myths histories and legends living on ev

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenWhile I enjoyed each individual story the 2 star rating comes mostly from the frustration I had due to the fact that the stories were just far apart enough in time and with just similar enough names given names as well as surnames that I was never sure who was related to whom and what the lineage was Two things that could have helped with this would have been a to make the stories just a bit closer in time historically or b to provide a family tree chart at the front of the book Or both As it was I eventually stopped trying to connect everyone but it detracted from my overall enjoyment of the book I especially liked how Dead Husband's Meadow became Husband's Meadow and eventually Band's Meadow and wished there had been references like this Harr

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenDue to my busy schedule I often read right before I go to bed So for me the mark of a good book is one that I pick up about half an hour before bedtime and refuse to put down until my eyes are absolutely closing with fatigue The Red Garden is such a book It's magical whimsical powerful Although the stories making up a patchwork history of Blackwell MA are set in

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenMost reviews of The Red Garden see it as a series of linked stories covering the history of small Blackwell MA aka Bearville from its founding in 1750 to almost the present day 1990s I began reading the book this way but it started to feel repetitious The stories are too tenuously connected to be read as a novel like series of linked stories The sister of a character in one story may appear on the fringes of the next but the significance is hard to findI enjoyed the book as I began to read it as a piece of experimental fiction a Tarot deck of about a dozen characters—human or not—that Hoffmann continually reshuffles and deals into new configurations To witThe Red Haired WomanGirlThe Solitary ManLost BoyThe LoverThe Outs

    The Red Garden Book · Hardcover Æ Srlltd The Red GardenMy low rating of this book probably stems from having just read Jhumpa Lahiri’s beautiful and haunting short stories The Red Garden is also broken into stories connected through a town’s lineage with characters appearing at different ages in different stories For some reason I could not connect with this book at all While her writing style was appealing and easy to listen to the plot and characters felt distant and a little forced I had a hard time wrapping my brain around some of the connections in the stories and spent too much time pondering for example who Kate was and where she appeared in previous stories This being an audio book I couldn’t flip backward and find out and I ended up missing bits and pieces of the story I was currently listen
