free read Mourning Ruby characters Mourning Ruby ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook About thirty years ago a mother laid her newborn baby in a shoebox and left it in the backyard of an Italian restaurant Now the baby Rebecca is a mother herself A child of no one and nowhere she has. The first part of this book had me so gripped I couldn t sleep as former abandoned child Rebecca and her husband Adam mourned the loss of their only daughter But part way through it became a thoroughly weak tale written by Rebecca s friend Joe from where it descended rapidly into cliche and plot twists heralded from a mile off At one point Dun so lost interest in telling the rest of Joe s plucky prostitute in love with doomed WW1 airman story she continued it as notes The best part of the tale is that of Rebecca s boss a showman turned hotelier but it is treated as a throw away in order to get back to Joe By the end I was only continuing to see if the grizzly bears surrounding his writing retreat in Vancouver had got hungry enough to do all disgruntled readers a favour Best avoided

free read Mourning Ruby characters Mourning Ruby ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Created her own unorthodox but tender family Then this hopeful life is dealt a blow that could shatter even the strongest of ties Now Rebecca must face the future by delving into her mysterious past. How does this happen How can an author who writes such stellar books such as The Seige write a dud like Mourning RubyOne hundred pages into it and I uit counted my loss and moved along It was good enough to keep hoping that it would get better Alas I was trickedChecking other reviews I find the same thoughts as mine ie too many plots too many images that float all over kingdom come too much rambling and way too much convolutionA tragic loss of a five year old child is a substantial plot yet Dun flies all over the place with snipets of characters and their thoughts If the thoughts don t add to the story who caresI hate it when I m left feeling stupid because I didn t comprehend what the heck she was trying to sayI have no idea what Dun was hoping to accomplish If she was trying to be highly intellectual or highly artistic she failedNOT recommended

free read Mourning Ruby characters Mourning Ruby ¸ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Dun's most ambitious work to date Mourning Ruby is a meditation on memory and history both personal and public It's an unforgettable tale of love loss and the transcendent power of storytelling itsel. I didn t really enjoy this book The first section was the better bit although as the mother of children around Ruby s age I found it very hard to read and I did cry uite a bit But then it went into Joe s story that he was writing and it lost its way I m sure there was supposed to be a connection but to be honest I got to the stage where I just wanted to get it read and move on so I didn t spend to long trying to make those connectionsIt felt like a muddled book with too many ideas
