free download The Book of Night Women

The Book of Night Women is a sweeping startling novel a true tour de force of both voice and storytelling It is the story of Lilith born into slavery on a Jamaican sugar plantation at the end of the eighteenth century Even at her birth the slave women around her recognize a dark power that they and she will come to both revere and fear The Night Women as they call themselves have long been plottin this book hurts in so many ways initially it hurts to get acclimated to the narrator's voice whenever i read books written in dialect it always takes me at least 40 pages to start to get the hang of it i curse you irvine welsh and then it hurts because it's such a raw and bloody depiction of the physical and emotional bullshit of slavery and then after it's all done it hurts that it's so well written you just want of it so i'm awfully glad i broke my promise about not buying any hardcover books this one is worth hardcover pricecome to my blog

Ife on the plantation is rife with dangerous secrets unspoken jealousies inhuman violence and very human emotion between slave and master between slave and overseer and among the slaves themselves Lilith finds herself at the heart of it all And all of it told in one of the boldest literary voices to grace the page recently and the secret of that voice is one of the book's most intriguing mysteries Truly powerful stuff And harrowing report of human misery The novel is literally dripping with abuse and violence both verbal and physical Directed at slaves But there is a slave and slave The book of night women is about inhuman barbarous treatment and punishing system it’s about cruelty and humiliation delivered not only by masters but also by slaves to themselves men to women women to women The story told here is a spiral of terror and brutality It’s nothing like saccharine pictures you may remember from Gone with the wind There is no trace of good missy and her faithful maid Men no matter of colour of their skin seem to think only about one thing No wonder it were women who had to take the bit in their handsLanguage is extremely rude salacious and vulgar at times primitive even additionally Marlon James uses Jamaican patois what at times may be a bit trying but after some pages you rather don't mind it at all I haven’t read much novels concerning slavery but only this year I read two books dealing with the theme This very one and generally praised The Underground Railroad It’s hard to avoid comparisons now But it was the novel by Marlon James that won me over that truly moved me that shook me to the core Some images and words still haunt me and I can’t get rid of them now The brutality and atrocity feels so painfully real and tangible that almost knock you down That choke you I thought it was bloody brilliant I mean that It was bloody It was brilliant And I believe that the plunge into that heart of darkness won't leave anyone indifferent455 Die Ermordung einer Butterblume und andere Erzählungen unspoken jealousies inhuman violence and very human emotion between slave and master between slave and overseer and among the slaves themselves Lilith finds herself at the heart of it all And all of it told in one of the boldest literary voices to grace the page recently and the secret of that voice is one of the book's most intriguing mysteries Truly powerful stuff And harrowing report of human misery The novel is literally dripping with abuse and violence both verbal and physical Directed at slaves But there is a slave and slave The book of night women is about inhuman barbarous treatment and punishing system it’s about cruelty and humiliation delivered not only by masters but also by slaves to themselves men to women women to women The story told here is a spiral of terror and brutality It’s nothing like saccharine pictures you may remember from Gone with the wind There is no trace of good missy and her faithful maid Men no matter of colour of their skin seem to think only about one thing No wonder it were women who had to take the bit in their handsLanguage is extremely rude salacious and vulgar at times primitive even additionally Marlon James Ludwigs Zimmer uses Jamaican patois what at times may be a bit trying but after some pages you rather don't mind it at all I haven’t read much novels concerning slavery but only this year I read two books dealing with the theme This very one and generally praised The Underground Railroad It’s hard to avoid comparisons now But it was the novel by Marlon James that won me over that truly moved me that shook me to the core Some images and words still haunt me and I can’t get rid of them now The brutality and atrocity feels so painfully real and tangible that almost knock you down That choke you I thought it was bloody brilliant I mean that It was bloody It was brilliant And I believe that the plunge into that heart of darkness won't leave anyone indifferent455
