Veronica Chambers: The Go Between

Free Pdf The Go Between ↠ Veronica Chambers –

I think my main problem with this novel was that it wasn t story it was long essay The book is written in the perspective of Camilla Mexican girl who has recently immigrated to the US Left Fur Dead and the storytelling style while in the first person is freuently in the past tensend goes off into tangents It felt devoted to dumping s much information on Mexican culture in one novel s possible rather than story bout Death by Tea a girl who needed to check her privilege Camilla liesbout her parents in n effort to see how racist her classmates can be because she was surprised to find that it is so Which makes me uestion how she could have been surprised when she herself says that she watches lot of American media I could tell you how racist people I ssume re in the US towards Indians just by the portrayal of Indian American characters Ignoring the fact that she doesn t even try to correct them By Way Of A Wager and let racist stereotypes be perpetrated most of this goes unchallenged by her own brother who is concerned with her lying than the fact that she is doing the former In fact with the exception of Milly no one else tries to correct her on that frontnd her racist so called friends had only been so because they wanted to have diverse friend in their group I m so out of eyerolls t this moment because the book before this had put me in bad mood The book while trying to be culturally inclusive is wrapped in the bland package of trying too hard nd mediocre descriptive writing My only consolation over it ll was that it was only When Kingdom Comes a blessed 200 pages I couldn t have been happier to see the last chapter well until I realized it was preachy thank you speech of sorts While the cultural diversity in the book comes through there was one point in the book when Camilla joked that she was possibly schizophrenic excuse me being liar who leads double life doesn t make you schizophrenic The Wayward Bride (Besotted Scots, and it is insensitive to paint mental illness in such manner Camilla s mother s nxiety was mostly Such a Dance abandonedfter that plot point was made nd it served mostly s plot initiator than plot rcOverall the book is blandly written nd boring nd even the lush details on Mexican culture can t make up for that fact Received n La bte du marais advance reader copy in exchange for fair review from Random House Children s via
