REVIEW Ì The Stone Carvers In 1867 a good natured Bavarian priest is sent by God and mad King Ludwig to the wilds of North America Soon the backwoods are transformed into a parish and the settlers into a congregati. YukI ve probably just experienced my cynicism in a purer form than at any other time during the year I thought this was a literary novel not romantic escapist fiction Pumped full of artificial sweeteners and melodrama and exalted feelings described in flowery prose there was barely anything I found credible in this book Early on a young boy is chained up in a barn without so much as a disapproving frown from the author with regards to his jailor parents He escapes and becomes a hobo his experiences like some scenic coach tour sponsored by the Canadian tourist board My incredulousness though peaked when a woman who has never carved marble in her life sneaks onto a war monument and begins carving the face of her lost lover onto one of the archetypal statues It would be a great scene in a comic novel The architect though loves what she does so it s all good Everything is ultimately all good in this novel I loathed it ゆらぎ荘の幽奈さん 1 sent by God and mad King Ludwig to the wilds of North America Soon the backwoods are transformed into a parish and the Liam’s Unexpected Alpha Lupinville #1 settlers into a congregati.

REVIEW Ì The Stone Carvers Talent and has a surfeit of what the local nuns call a fondness for men's work Untamed she falls in love with an Irish boy Eamon O'Sullivan only to have him leave to fight in the Great Wa. Did not finish in time for my office book club and will have to leave it unfinished just over the 100 page mark I don t want to hate on CanLit but this is also what I hate about CanLit Everything about it rubbed me the wrong way and it shocks me how much praise it was given when the prose was unforgivable from the overwrought depictions of Klara s wanderlust brother that scene where he is chained in the yard like a dog as his mom suffers in the house is so corny to the cringe filled sentiment of Eamon s declaration to Klara that no textbook romance novel would ever get away with Eamon was so uiet yet this was Klara s burning unreuited love At one point Eamon declares to Klara I would die of this Which yeah you re not the only one pal There s weirdness to life in the subterranean layers in even the most mundane moments to the unspoken tension behind silence but The Stone Carvers felt so contrived and trying to be than exist and is I suppose there are many overarching themes transcending grief through art but it was very treacly drama What I did enjoy from what I read was Klara s forbears settling in Ontario That was interesting from a Canadian history perspective which as many who took Canadian history know is not saying much I give it two stars because as much as it triggers me and my Canadian pride it s not the worst thing one could spend one s time with It s simply mediocre Amazon, main basse sur le futur surfeit of what the local nuns call a fondness for men's work Untamed Les Hirondelles de Kaboul she falls in love with an Irish boy Eamon O'Sullivan only to have him leave to fight in the Great Wa.
