There is another review I wrote a while ago that talks about how fiction is kind of a response to a feeling that hume metaphorizes as when we live we can only live a sketch, there isn t time for drafting or going back to fill in the missing pieces And basically in that review I concluded fiction was a way of trying to draft things to go and color in an experience we d never had and never will have, basically to live a different life I don t suddenly disagree with that, but reading this book I There is another review I wrote a while ago that talks about how fiction is kind of a response to a feeling that hume metaphorizes as when we live we can only live a sketch, there isn t time for drafting or going back to fill in the missing pieces And basically in that review I concluded fiction was a way of trying to draft things to go and color in an experience we d never had and never will have, basically to live a different life I don t suddenly disagree with that, but reading this book I think it might also be a way of retraumatizing, or even reliving trauma when you can control it I don t mean to say that I think the things in this book really happened to lindsay hunter because I have no way of knowing that But I do think this book leaks pain in a
We wouldn t mention how glamorous it felt to say we were bored, and how in the dark we got chill bumps up and down our arms at the idea that this was life, and life smelled like peach carpet spray and cinnamon chewing gum and cheap flavored wine, all backwashed up. The stories in Daddy s are like diamonds tiny, rock hard, but dazzling or sparklers bright, brief, dangerous if you get too close They could be summed up by picking any line out at random, but the above the concluding sentence We wouldn t mention how glamorous it felt to say we were bored, and how in the dark we got chill bumps up and down our arms at the idea that this was life, and life smelled like peach carpet spray and cinnamon chewing gum and cheap flavored wine, all backwashed up.

All of the five star reviews for this are warranted Hunter is fearless when it comes to content AND the style that she dresses it in There are moments in this beautifully designed book that threaten to go over the top and sure, it probably does but sometimes great books do that The envelope is not just pushed, but it s pulled as well Torn apart with wild spasms Hunter should be read widely and she should be watched closely I will bet that she fucks shit up for a long time At least I h All of the five star reviews for this are warranted Hunter is fearless when it comes to content AND the style that she dresses it in There are moments in this beautifully designed book that threaten to go over the top and sure, it probably does but sometimes great books do that The envelope is
thought girls were to grow out of this phase of angst in their mid late teens when they run away from home, drink to justify opening legs to older men then sit in coffeeshops and write in journals about it all so much of these stories seem from that stereotype of an era, albethem tolerably better written in verbiage if not construct.and it reinforces the fact that genders should rarely write from the POV of another s here, they come across as base and insipid however, and this is why it thought girls were to grow out of this phase of angst in their mid late teens when they run away from home, drink to justify opening legs to older men then sit in coffeesh
I d like to lock myself in a room with Goodreads for a week I ve read so many great books in the past year and I want to write about them, to spread the good word So many books, so little time, and I ve let that hugeness and those annoying Goodreads s star ratings overwhelm me.Star ratings are hard I prefer to discuss a book rather than rate it, but everyone else has to work with those sc
It took me a long time to read this, although the entire book is short and each story within it very short It s just so repulsive I felt genuinely sick reading each story The characters are spiteful, petty, cruel, and I bet they haven t showered or brushed their teeth for a while I often read while eating, and this book is absolutely not recommended for that If this sounds like I didn t enjoy the book quite the opposite I loved it and have dogeared just about every page Hunter has an i It took
