    Epub Closed Doors PDF è ´ academics20193.co closed epub, doors epub, Closed Doors KindleInteresting plot in a small struggling Scottish town a young woman is raped and badly beating while walking home from work one night and her shame prevents her from going to the police Thus the townspeople assume her husband has beat her she goes through intense depression which worsens when the rapist attacks a teen and then a pregnant neighbor As her family is destroyed she struggles with the horror of what she has gone through and what she has put others throughButthe narrator is the 11 year old son of the woman who was raped first While some writers have told a story successfully through a child's voice Room or even a dog's Art of Racing in the Rain this does not ring true at all I had thought both from the cover and from the immaturity of the character that the narrator was about 8 years old until it was his 12th birthday The rage the boy is supposed to feel

    Epub Closed Doors PDF è ´ academics20193.co closed epub, doors epub, Closed Doors KindleI loved CLOSED DOORS and was enchanted by the voice of 11 year old Michael and his interpretation of the world around him As with DEATH OF BEES O'Donnell successfully pulls the reader into the universe of her characters with sensitivity spot on storytelling and humor

    Epub Closed Doors PDF è ´ academics20193.co closed epub, doors epub, Closed Doors KindleI like coming of age stories and the stream of consciousness that is the narrator's voice It works well and though there were a few inconsistencies with Michael's maturity level and some repetition the thoughts were believably both perceptive and childish for a 12 year old even brought me back to my youth and trying to eavesdrop on adult conversations There's good tension throughout the book as well as a few laughs though I wasn't enad with the ending The Death of Bees by O'Donnell was better than Closed Doors in my opinion but I still flew through this book That girl was saved by God says Granny but Granny says that about everything esp
