A mythical family saga steeped in the Golden Hill legends of the sea The Lobster Kings is a powerhouse of a novel Ben FountainThe Kings family hasived on Loosewood Island for three hundred years Now Woo. Tween Loosewood Island and James Harbour on the mainland is both dull and ridiculous The Kings and the James Harbour Boys sound ike the Earps and
the Clantons and act ike it too it all gets terribly gung ho and the dialogue Clantons and act Gunships A Pictorial History of Spooky Vietnam Studies Group series 6032 like it too it all gets terribly gung ho and the dialogue to theevel of a comic strip Harrison Ford famously told George Lucas that he could type this stuff but you sure as hell couldn t say it he d have had the same problem with Zentner There is something thrown in about the James Harbour boys using obster trapping thrown in about the James Harbour boys using obster trapping a cover for smuggling meth but this is never fully developed Actually
that is oneis one the main problems with the novel Zentner introduces plot strands and just Archivist Wasp leaves them dangling and whenever things start to slip from his control his default solution seems to be to kill a character off or get them shot at Eventually a villain emerges but he is so one dimensional and needlessly brutal he is hard to believe his assertion that Woody Kings is nothing but a bully who has no automatic rights to the waters echoed my own feelings yet Zentner seems to want us to think this view is part of his wickedness trying to think of a better word but wickedness suits the cartoonish characterisation The novel also spends aot of time on the day to day of Ladang Hitam di Pulau Dewa lobster fishing I veearned one thing from this Diary of a Minecraft Ender Dragon: An Unofficial Minecraft Book lobster fishing is incredibly boring The one saving grace of the novel is the narrator Cordelia Kings isn t the most original character but she s so plucky and feisty that the reader can t help but be engaged by her andike her The novel does contain some good scenes some arresting imagery but had this been the first time I d read Zentner I d have probably abandoned it halfway through Beautiful one of those books where the synopsis of the plot really tells you very Economists with Guns: Authoritarian Development and U.S.-Indonesian Relations, 1960-1968 little about what the book really IS Just thi I absolutelyoved this book It possessed everything I I Am Sam Phonics Chapter Books love in a novel great writing family and friends personal character flaws and growth And I would be remiss if I didn t mention how much Ioved the author s skill in describing the environment Beautiful and Legacy The Balancer Chronicles lyrical A Superb atmospheric experience Plus the book had a mythical component which I really don t seek out in stories that I found fascinating I must track down another book by Mr Zentner soon I will miss these characters and will think of this book often I absolutely adored the first 100 pages of this book the story of the Kings as children Cordelia sove for the sea and tradition and the magical realism elements If the novel had continued on in this vein I would have given it a full 5 stars Unfortunately the story took a significant turn with the James Harbor drug smugglingdealing element which didn t appeal to me so muchI grew up in New Brunswick and am very familiar with Charlotte county and the Fundy Isles Loosewood Island seems very much A Debate On Jewish Emancipation And Christian Theology In Old Berlin like Grand Manan Island to me In fact I can t help but wonder if the story was inspired by an event that happened on Grand Manan back in 2006 which was very well publicized Check out thisink wwwtheglobeandmailcomnewsnational Any other readers notice this Grand Manan connection.
