So much

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, 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

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, The Glass Ocean ePUBI will not star this book because I uit at page 54 Received it in a goodreads giveawaySeems to be the type of book that wins a literary award and lingers about a century longer than it should to torment high school students by being an enforced reading assignment I have no doubt that some overeducated academic will espouse that this book is well written because of this or that; but I think it's just really wordy and obnoxiousThe author has chosen to thumb her nose at what would be considered conventionally good sentence flow by waffling between sentences that are really really long Some over 100 words Just

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, The Glass Ocean ePUBThis is an exuisite 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 uality 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 Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, 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 tell

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, The Glass Ocean ePUBThis book employs lush poetic language I would go so far as to say that the rhythms of language are central to the characterizations and setting of the book The author's work with phrasing with the momentum of clauses within a sentence and how they conjure an atmosphere era and person was a great pleasure for me though I would acknowledge that for those readers who want a plot driven novel this style might be discomfiting It's clear that an enormous amount of research went into the writing Victorian science and craftwork travel narratives and details of attire and furnishing all seem precisely depicted but Baker manages this without creating a phony or strained diction and I say this as an avid reader of Victorian novels She has the ability to see and hear a distant world despite its hardships as beautiful spooky and fu

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, The Glass Ocean ePUBFascinating story based on uirky 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 suarely into historical fiction with gorgeous period detail

    PDF Lori Baker â PDF The Glass Ocean PDF ✓ The Glass eBook Ð â academics20193.co glass ebok, ocean epub, The Glass mobile, 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
