    Hoffman is in familiar, magical turf in this collection of charming and engaging, if not always happy stories The unifying core is the history of a town, from founding, as Bearsville, which includes a very significant nod to Romulus and Remus, to present, Blackwell, MA, and particularly with a special garden behind the founder s house, the Red Garden of the title It has some lightly m

    DNF page 106I tried, guys I really did But at just over 100 pages, the story still didn t grab me Which is a shame because I ve read some really thoughtful reviews of this book that made me interested in the first place The thing was that I found this just to be too rambly and depressing, not to mention that the story still wasn t going anywhere at nearly 40% in.Honestly, there are only so

    I m new to Alice Hoffman and starting out with her lesser known books This was the perfect book to read early on It s a series of linked short stories taking place in the town of Blackwell, Massachusetts over a span of 300 years A few of the stories were so fascinating I wanted to hear From only a few of Hoffman s books, I can see the magical realism is strong which I love I m not sure why bu

    Writers have this hankering to create fictional landscapes and populate them with characters who cut across narratives Marquez s Macondo, Faulkner s Yoknapatawpha County and Hardy s Wessex are examples which readily spring to mind Over the course of many stories, these countries of the imagination take on a life of their own and will generate their own myths, histories and legends living on even a

    While I enjoyed each individual story, the 2 star rating comes mostly from the frustration I had due to the fact that the stories were just far apart enough in time and with just similar enough names given names as well as surnames that I was never sure who was related to whom and what the lineage was Two things that could have helped with this would have been a to make the stories just a bit closer i

    What another joy it was to read The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman its only short 270 pages but again she takes on a magical journey of the descendants of Blackwell Massachusetts it was formally known as Bears Ville for the obvious reasons, Miss Hoffman opens up with 4 families who risk all in the coldest winter William brady is looking for a wife he meets Hallie who was an orphan she was 14 he was 40 they m

    Due to my busy schedule, I often read right before I go to bed So for me, the mark of a good book is one that I pick up about half an hour before bedtime, and refuse to put down until my eyes are absolutely closing with fatigue The Red Garden is such a book It s magical, whimsical, powerful Although the stories making up a patchwork history of Blackwell, MA are set in different times with mostly different cas

    Most reviews of The Red Garden see it as a series of linked stories covering the history of small Blackwell, MA aka Bearville from its founding in 1750 to almost the present day 1990s I began reading the book this way but it started to feel repetitious The stories are too tenuously connected to be read as a novel like series of linked stories The sister of a character in one story may appear on the fringes of the

    My low rating of this book probably stems from having just read Jhumpa Lahiri s beautiful and haunting short stories The Red Garden is also broken into stories, connected through a town s lineage with characters appearing at different ages in different stories For some reason, I could not connect with this book at all While her writing style was appealing and easy to listen to, the plot and characters felt distant an

    Did not finish DNF 17%It s always so sad to DNF a book by one of your favorite authors But I just couldn t get into this one at all I ve been trying to make myself read it since July, and it s October Let s face it, it s just not working out.I think the reason I couldn t get into it is the same reason I find it hard to read short stories I get used to the character, and bam they re gone This was just like that Okay, so m
