    Download Book ¸ SandkasteleImaginings of Sand Ê Paperback Ò Srlltd SandkasteleImaginings of SandI am the biggest Brink Fan on the planet He is my favourite author so I am biased with all of his work Don't expect a balanced review from me As with all Brinks work the backdrop is apartheid South Africa and the stuggles of white and black alike

    Download Book ¸ SandkasteleImaginings of Sand Ê Paperback Ò Srlltd SandkasteleImaginings of Sand contains spoiler An admirable effort However Brink is not always successful in capturing a woman's voice or experience Only men are uite so contemptuous of older women's bodies here alternately described as faded saggy bulbous elephantine While I liked that he tried to avoid creating stereotypical mothers as madonnas he swings the other way by describing generation after generation of horrible mothers albeit mothers whose own sufferings led them to their behaviour Finally while women do kill it is overwhelmingly the case that women who try to leave abusive relationships and their children are killed by men and diverging from this statistic for variety's sake strikes a false note in any story that is overtly trying to paint an accurate p

    Download Book ¸ SandkasteleImaginings of Sand Ê Paperback Ò Srlltd SandkasteleImaginings of SandI found myself skipping over paragraphs almost from the beginning which is never a good sign I thought the author made far too much out of the fact that the protagonist is good looking first the two men groping her on the airplane then her brother in law hitting on her then her own sister admiring her in the bath 80 pages into the book I'm still finding it difficult to relate to or enjoy the characters who have been introduced Finally while I thought it was ambitious to tackle themes of racism and misogyny at the same time the way that they were explored was similar to someone blowing a bullhorn at odd moments rather than creating a pervasive sense of imbalance and tension
