review The Bean Trees

review The Bean Trees Barbara Kingsolver Ñ 4 characters review Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ñ Barbara Kingsolver Lahoma to Tucson Arizona half Cherokee Taylor and her charge search for a new life in the WestWritten with humor and pathos this highly praised novel focuses on love and friendship abandonment and belonging as Taylor out of money and seemingly out of options settles in dusty Tucson and begins working at Jesus Is Lord Used Tires while trying to make a life for hersel. I uite liked this though it s obvious that this was Kingsolver s first novel The main character Taylor is unevenly developed she s too mutable changing to fit what Kingsolver wants to say or how she wants to say it at various points in the book and many of the other characters are types not people however finely observed The plotline involving the refugees from Guatemala in particular was a little too anvilicious And while it s set very definitely in the American South the novel didn t seem reminiscent of it I never really got a picture of Tuscon or Oklahoma in my head because there was description but no feel What drew me into this book though were the hints of how vivid her writing would become by the time of The Poisonwood Bible there are some really sharp and oddly beautiful observations and when she s not trying too hard to drive home a point her dialogue is nicely observed Interesting too to see that is a book in which men are characterised almost solely by their absence Enjoyable for the style and the promise but not for the substance I think

review The Bean Trees Barbara Kingsolver Ñ 4 characters review Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ñ Barbara Kingsolver The Bean Trees is bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver’s first novel now widely regarded as a modern classic It is the charming engrossing tale of rural Kentucky native Taylor Greer who only wants to get away from her roots and avoid getting pregnant She succeeds but inherits a 3 year old native American little girl named Turtle along the way and together from Ok. My stepmother was the type of woman who painted the walls in our house eighteen different colors and wore turuoise encrusted Kokopelli jewelry to show how in tune she was with the local culture She hung Frida Khalo prints on the bedroom walls and thought that speaking Food Spanish to waiters made her nearly fluent She also compelled my sister and me to read a lot of Tony Hillerman paperbacks and other local literature which I am now almost positive included The Bean Trees Because after reading the first chapter of this book I got the strangest sense of de ja vu This is probably appropriate in its way given that the reason I picked it up in the first place was to suppress a bit of homesickness Because a couple times a year amidst the April snowstorms and one too many guys on the subway who splay themselves across two seats while playing audio enabled Snood on their cell phones I start pining for the homeland I turned to this book hoping to get a good dose of Tucsonan flavor to keep me going until I had the time and money to go home and remember why I left in the first place I have to say though The Bean Trees didn t really do the trick Because even though I appreciate details about the Sun Tran bus line and the way it smells in the desert when it rains the thing I miss the most about Tucson there s to invoking a landscape than just listing of things that are really there A good book about New York for instance isn t good because it mentions the Empire State Building or talks about people taking taxis It is a major and freuent misstep in novels to try and just be factually accurate about a place without ever getting into how it really feels there To be fair though while the landscape wasn t terribly reminiscent of Arizona the writing style really was in its own probably accidental way Because Ms Kingsolver really illuminates that deep Southwestern flare for characters and culture a fondness for highlighting how darn uirky desert folk really are and a gringo s deep and abiding love of all things latino As a side note though if we re going to just start dropping real places into the book for authenticity I would have swapped the Jesus Is Lord tire place for the church that has Happiness is Submission to God painted on it a slogan which often gets altered to Happiness is Submission to Godzilla by persistent neighborhood delinuents
