    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBWhen I began reading this story I was barely trudging through and then the appearance of gems which I plucked in the form of sentences that suddenly changed the tone of the entire book for me This strange novel pulled me in and it was a slow bleedFirst I have to address the feelings of frustration

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBPOSSIBLE SPOILERSSeductive prose that reflects the themes and conceits of the novel The ocean in the rhythms its tides and currents and strange depths is turned into flowing language and cadences Somehow Lori Baker also manages to marry art and science in her language at times the poetic and dreamlike language becomes analytical almost taxonomic such as in the long lists that appear on a page Beautiful synchronicity of style and themeI loved the settings of the ship of scientific endeavour in the 1840s ploughing the waves in exotic climes then the return to cold and claustrophobic Victorian Whitby with its narrow twisting steepnesses and the cold dark torrent flowing beneath the Birdcage Birdcage prison? sanctuary? So much that one could unpick

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBThis has to be one of the most beautifully written books I’ve read so far this year The prose’s lushness left me stunned many times and the story itself is delicately written I loved the way the story was told with the narrator weaving the plot along almost making it happen as she imagines it There were so many fabulous details of the Victorian period including details to do with ships and seafaring that the reader really felt immersed in the age The story is like an old kind of worn piece of lace that is lightly yellowing intricate and pungent The characters especially Clotilde are fascinating The author manages to bring them to life in such a way that they are never overwhelmed by the atmosphere or the details This is not easy to achieve in s

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBPerhaps one of best and smartest books I've read the quality of the writing is amazing and the narrative shook me Carlotta is trying to find her way in the face of being abandoned by both her mother and her father and to understand their obsessions their reasons for doing something so unthinkable She is an empathic narrator she has empathy even to the point where she tries to understand the actions that hurt her to the core Even to the point is the wonder of the world she describes the sea voyage glassmaking the world of Victorian naturalists and then the magical world that glimmers just beyond This book requires attentive reading A friend of mine who gave me the book told me that she rea

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBThis is an exquisite and harrowing work of literary fiction So many images and passages will stay with me I grew to care deeply for each of the three main characters – the heartbreaking narrator and her two exceptional parents – even when I did not always like what they did I found myself marveling at the beautiful quality and control of language – on par with the best lyrical fiction — and the remarkably rich sensory world I have to say that Lori Baker's ability to bring art and science to life made this book a particular favorite This is one of those rare books where I was emotionally spent when I finished – it was a truly beautiful and cathartic experience

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBI received a copy of this book through a Goodreads giveawayThe beginning of this novel began slowly for me At first I had to push myself to keep reading a little bit every night until finally the story picked up in the second section After that I found the book to be a wonderful escape I could very easily place myself in the world Lori Baker created around the lives of several tragic characters The middle of the book for me was fast reading and thoroughly enjoyable The end slowed down a bit again but was nonetheless essential to the telling of the storyThe characters are certainly

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBFascinating story based on quirky obsessive real people The point of view was bizarre inconsistent the narrator speaks from the POV of an unborn child who somehow can see everything about her parents' lives and be inside their minds before she was even conceived That was hard to take but the characters are portrayed with passion and subtlety I'd put it halfway into the magical realism genre but also squarely into historical fiction with gorgeous period detail

    PDF The Glass Ocean eBook #231; The Glass PDFEPUB ² #8608; uroturkinfo #8608; glass ebok, ocean book, The Glass free, The Glass Ocean ePUBThis is a slow book One that allows the beauty of the language to tell the story without giving too much away Carlotta is an orphan that creates the story of her parents as she tells it imagining what they would have felt or said or done Although a sad story it is beautifully written and one that I am very glad to have immersed myself in This was a Goodreads Giveaway
