    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The Shorei chose this book thinking it was going to have a Winesburg Ohio vibe a series of linked stories that make up a larger novel feel in which desperate characters both love and resent their isolated hometowns and suffer beautifullyand in some ways that expectation panned out structurally it holds up although this is definitely novel than short story collection although it is made up of short self contained vignettes they would lose something if this had been marketed as a collection there is too much foreshadowing that will pay off in later narratives and there are little aha moments peppered throughout that would be overlooked if these were read as stories in isolationand these characters do indeed suffer this is an unremittingly bleak novel and i think it is a lot grimmer than anything in winesburg so be prepared for that

    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The ShoreI don't read short stories as a rule and I know I am missing out on some really good writing but once in a while I take the leap especially if the stories are connected That's the next best thing to a novel for me and this collection felt like a novel sort of It would have felt so if the stories in this book were in chronological order ; then the changes in the narratives spanning over 250 years might not have been as confusing However the appearance of people mentioned in one story in another story which takes places years or a century before was a clever mechanism that hooked me The structure of the book made for a little work to piece things together and several times I had

    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The ShoreSouthern grit lit at its best If you like generations of a very disturbed and disturbing family in your reading selections this fits the bill Murder mayhem mysticism meth heads and malevolence fill the chaptersThe lay out of the chapters really interconnected vignettes would be what I first disliked and then ended up much appreciating by the end This book makes your brain work Something like 20 characters are introduced at different points in their lives not chronologically and without much explanation of to whom or how they are related Since neither my ARC nor my ebook included a family tree in the front I think the finished book does I took many notes on each chapter and referred back often It became

    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The ShoreRarely do I finish a book and have so little to say about it I enjoyed The Shore and I wanted to write an in depth review but I've been struggling for days with what I have to say and even what I remember about the story The way I felt about this reminds me of the way I felt about Hannah Kent's Burial Rites which was published and which I read in 2013 both books gathered a word of mouth

    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The ShoreNearly 45 Gritty and virtuosic this novel in 13 stories imagines 250 years of history on a set of islands off the coast of Virginia As a Maryland native I think of Chincoteague and Assateague as vacation destinations but Taylor definitely focuses on their dark side here industrial scale chicken farms unwanted pregnancies domestic violence bootleg liuor gang rape murders and meth labs There’s a core of narratives set in the 1980s–90s that could easily form a novel on their own but these are interspersed with vignettes stretching from 1876 to 2143 Dirty realism thus shares space with historical fiction and dystopia while first person narration about one third trades off with third pers

    ePub Ë The Shore ñ HardcoverDownload  SaraTaylor The ShoreThere are many characters that populate this very assured debut novel but none of them is enduring and unforgettable than the shore itself Within these chapters characters ebb and flow like the ocean itself plunging in head first to reveal themselves to the reader and then receding to safe or not so safe shoreIndeed the structure of the book follows this ebb and flow starting in current times withdrawing to 1876 advancing to a horrific dystopian future in 2143 introducing different “players” almost willy nilly If you enjoy linear books this is not a novel for you However if you have
