    The Grass Dancer MOBI ç The Grass PDF/EPUB ² grass kindle, dancer epub, The Grass free, The Grass Dancer EpubI loved this book and could hardly bear to put it down In fact it is now one of my favourite magic realist books which is saying a lot this is the 116th review on this blog There are some books that you should read in one sitting or as near to one as you can get This is one such book Each chapter in the book is almost a separate story narrated by different characters at different times it is important to make a note of the year that appears under each chapter heading This patchwork of stories comes together to form the larger picture This structure is why it is important to read the book rapidly because you can lose your way if you take too long I felt very much that I was dreaming when I read the book experiencing a series of instances visions references t

    The Grass Dancer MOBI ç The Grass PDF/EPUB ² grass kindle, dancer epub, The Grass free, The Grass Dancer EpubThis book follows the lives of various members of the Sioux Nation starting in the 1980s and going back into the 18 hundreds It was very interesting reading about things that many would consider paranormal or supernatural but we're or are considered real in traditional Sioux culture One of the characters is a Sioux witch a rather evil one and there are also ghosts and a shaman Long dead ancestors still make appearances in modern lifeAt first it might seem like there are too many characters however as the story ends everything comes together All the characters and stories are interrelated and come together in a perfect whole story leaving the rea

    The Grass Dancer MOBI ç The Grass PDF/EPUB ² grass kindle, dancer epub, The Grass free, The Grass Dancer EpubThis is a beautifully written book The magical realism the character development the lyricism are all fabulous I did occasionally have trouble keeping up with who was who in the sectional changes but not enough to effect my rating

    The Grass Dancer MOBI ç The Grass PDF/EPUB ² grass kindle, dancer epub, The Grass free, The Grass Dancer EpubA terrific poetic and moving novel of resilience pride fear and raw human emotion Power’s prose is as smooth as velvet and her ability to weave a story and create such rich complex characters is fantastic The fantasy elements of the story are riveting and you can almost feel the magic that’s coursing through the narrative The alternating character viewpoints and timelines helped to keep the story fresh and allowed for backstory to be provided for every character in the novel A rich and compelling tapestry of Native American culture and beliefs in a contemporary setting

    The Grass Dancer MOBI ç The Grass PDF/EPUB ² grass kindle, dancer epub, The Grass free, The Grass Dancer EpubThis is a genuinely great bookIs it possible to be cynical about it? Yes It is a little too easy to describe this book in elevator pitch terms Michael Dorris does Wuthering Heights and it is so cinematic that one might feel it was calculated to be a movie Chuck Norris the dog was made for film But these are unfair thoughtsThe book is cinematic because Powers is that kind of writer She knows what literary allusions she is making and is in full control of them she calls out Wuthering Heights in fact She is careful about the symbolism without letting it get in the way of the book Her use of symbolic imagery makes me think of E Annie ProulxThe book works though because the characters are real wonderful and flawed and their stories gripping And there are many stories here and many categories The book almost works as a series of short stories rather than a novel think Proulx again But it's held together b
