A Reminder of What Ugly Really Is, and in Turn How to Find the Beauty
April 21, 2019
I downloaded this book as part of World Book Day. I read two sentences and wanted to read more. I couldn't put it down. The translation was eloquent. I can't think of how else to say it. It was like taking a spring swim in a lake of soft beautiful words. I read until I couldn't hold my eyes open, and then I read some more. Each of the characters had such touching stories. You will read it until you hurt, and only then will you realize you've been holding your breath. I love to read, but reading this book was like watching someone paint a beautiful masterpiece. The pain and sadness, the hurt and contempt, and the warped view of the coyote are all nice reminders to look for the humanity, and never let your guard down. People who aren't willing to accept fault need someone to blame and that is often the misunderstood. I can't guarantee you will love it as much as me, but I hope you will. Plenty of lovely descriptions out there if you want a synopsis of the story.
