(Days Without End) [Read] ✓ Sebastian Barry

Were possible A wonderfully poetic book about a violent period in America s istory I would compare it to McCarthy s Blood Meridian although different in style But both bloody stories told in the poetic voice of two different authors A contradiction of poetry and bloody war which in a weird way works delivering a Jeou p'ou t'ouan ou la chair comme tapis de prire heartfelt book Not an easy read for me but beautifully written Focus was essential for me to really appreciate the story Because of study and work I wasn t able to do so at first and oh the book Iad was so tiny and the pages crammed with text But once past this barrier the story came alive and the reading needs to be slow to really appreciate this story Four poetic stars My friend Wyndy recommended this book to me and in Frankenstein; or The Modern Prometheus her own review said that she didn t write well enough to do justice to this book The truth is that no one does It contains worlds but at it seart is the story of 3 people coming together to make a family It is told through the eyes and in the words of Thomas McNulty and is language carries you away like a river I give you some of is words We were two wood shavings of Do No Harm humanity in a rough world Man we was so clean and nice I wished I couldave met myself A man s memory might The Poseidon Adventure have only aundred clear days in it and How to Stop Drinking Alcohol and End Drug Addiction heas lived thousands Can t do much about that We Le tour du monde en uatre vingts jours have our store of days and we spend them like forgetful drunkards I ain t got no argument with it just saying it is so There s old sorrow in your blood like second nature and new sorrow that maddens thealls of sense Causes an uproar there Killing The Iron Raven (The Iron Fey: Evenfall, hurts theeart and soils the soul In my exaltation I forget I ain t got a bean of money but it don t concern me and I know I can rely on the kindness of folk along the way The ones that don t try to rob me will feed me That s The Kindest Lie how it is in America I never felt such joy ofeart as in those days traipsing southward I could give you many because Uncivil Rites honestly every sentence in this novel sparkles with beauty at the same time it grabs you by the throat An unbelievable tale of the building of America andow in the end love really is the only thing that matters Fabulous storytelling and narrative voice The excitement of this novel told in feverish lyrical prose is unrelenting We get an intimate first Ethnic Minorities and the Media Issues in Cultural and Media Studies hand account of the plains wars with the Sioux the civil war and the lawlessness of the settler towns in the wild west There s barely a page in this novel where you re not fearing for the lives of the novel s three central characters who form a misfit family two male lovers and their adopted Indian child The surface of this novel is dazzlingBeneath the surface it wasn t perhaps uite so successful There s so much action in this novel that the characters barelyave time to talk to each other which means we don t get to know them very well And the narrator doesn t do nuance where Kraken: An Anatomy his friends are concerned He s unremittingly generous Therefore we learn little aboutis companions except that they are flawless The Best I Can Be human beings deserving of our full sympathy In this respect I couldn telp comparing it a little unfavorably with Peter Carey s True History of the Kelly Gang another novel narrated lyrically by a semi educated outcast with lots of exciting plot but also with some great character development something this novel does lack For example the Sioux girl the two men adopt Killers of the Flower Moon : Oil, Money, Murder and the Birth of the FBI has little personality than a domestic pet She adapts toer new life like a domestic pet as well as if she Daughter of the Alien Warrior Treasured by the Alien has no long term memory She s there to make us feel protective of the characters and though this works as a device one never really seeser or believes much in Fire on the Water her The depiction of the Sioux in general was rather lazy expedient and erroneously cliched Barry invents a chief who behavesow the plot needs Once Upon an Eid him to behave I ve read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee and watched the excellent TV series Into the West and as far as I recall the real chief at that time wouldave been Red Cloud who was a lot savvy and onorable than Barry s rather slapstick Caught His Horse First However these are small gripes as Days Without End is a riveting read from start to finish For those who ve already read and loved this I d recommend True History of the Kelly Gang Sometimes you know

If it weren t for the glowing reviews of some trusted Goodreads friends I may ROMANCE have skipped this and I m so glad I didn t because this book works so well on so many levels First and foremost it was the writing with language that soars in its simplicity Secondly Barry gives us big slice of Americanistory in such a small volume which is powerful and painful to read at times This is not for the
