Traplines [E–pub READ]


Of the demographic of the book s

intended target audience 
target audience is I found some of the stories rather drawn out and pointless The best story in the collection is Dogs in Winter Although I am at a loss as to why it is called that Maybe I m missing some vital reference ere If I am and all you sharp and attentive people CEO Muscle haven t I apologize for my obtuseness The story concerns itself with the unimaginable effect on a young girl ofaving a serial killer for a mother What I like about this one is the fact that Robinson tells it in a non linear fashion She gives us tantalizing flashes of "key incidents without any attempt to spoon feed the reader The lack of "incidents without any attempt to spoon feed the reader The lack of may be confusing and disorientating at first glance but everything comes together with a very satisfying click and even then there are some uestions purposely left unanswered that just add to the strangeness of it all Contact Sports is the longest tale in the book and the only one that in my opinion could be defined as a proper novella I got the impression that this was perhaps intended as the The Mad Wolf's Daughter high point of the collection It started off intriguingly enough with an epilepticigh school student awaiting the arrival of Hawkes Prey Sonny Hawke Thriller his older cousin a young man who recently suffered a dishonorable discharge from the military and now onis way to Vancouver to find something else to do It was not very clear at least to me what exactly is purpose was another example of my obtuseness But although the narrative came on like a rampant lion it soon resembled a little whipped cur with its tail between its legs It carried on for far too long and did not say all that much in the end The remaining novellas the title piece Traplines and the concluding story ueen of the North ad two protagonists eking out intolerable existences in less than ideal circumstances The first one featured a set of parents not worthy of the name while the second one was enhanced by a sadly ironic ending Very few short stories in this collection In fact one is 100 pages More of a novella It was apparently combined or used for another book This BC noir First Nations writer No Prisoners Star Wars The Clone Wars has so many acclaims that I was daunted to rate this book only three stars Kidding I monest to a fault sometimes I did enjoy the stories but they didn t Husband for Hire have meankering to An Egg Is Quiet hunt down everything she s ever written The stories were raw sometimes funny but just didn t grab me like I thought they would I friggin love this book When I read it in uni for whatever reason it felt like one of the mostonest and Cinque indagini romane per Rocco Schiavone (Il vicequestore Rocco Schiavone Vol. 6) harditting books I d ever read I think I devoured it in one sitting Robinson focuses suarely on issues relating to teenagers growing up in rural communities specifically the simple fact that no matter what bad things are Professor Astro Cat's Human Body Odyssey happening to you youave literally nowhere to go to get away because you re surrounded by nothing Her spare and direct style drives this point into your gut whenever you watch the characters sublimating themselves to their Squash Basics - How To Play Squash horrible situations because theyave no way outA must read Admittedly I liked the least by far the longest story of the collection ie Contact Sports which at 100 pages seems to lose its strength a little towards the end However all four stories were amazing Gritty bloody and powerful they were teeming with the often not so uiet desparation of abused youth Highly recommended and without doubt Traplines will be one of my favourite books of the year. N techniues range from grand theft to omicide; kids who ave nowhere to go and a lifetime to get there. There are four short stories in Traplines the first two Traplines and Dogs in Winter I found to be a bit bland but Contact Sports the original basis for the later book Blood Sports is a fucking ride and ueen of the North is cathartic and a joy to read as well One of the things I would note about Robinson s writing is that it s often as gripping as any thriller but also socially conscious and thought provoking regardless of whether or not a reader immediately recognizes the context out of which Robinson is writing I would recommend er work to students of literature and self described common folk
