    My generation is over saturated with scenes of violence, rape, murder, and terror, both on screen and off As an avid reader and TV junkie, I don t think I could even begin to catalogue how many times a day I see or read something deeply disturbing I think that is why The River King made such a strong ...

    In the past I have loved Alice s magical and almost poetic prose Her plots have been intriguing and always such idiosyncratic characters You know, what not to love THE RIVER KING certainly starts out in the same way though this one dark, lots of rain, twigs breaking, howling wind Something crappy is going to happen She lets us know in her own unique way and so it does And no pun intended, that is surely the case with what occurs to Gus I wish I could divide the book into two scores becau In the pas...

    I want to like Alice Hoffman books but they re really hard for me to get into I d like to think that I just read them at bad times, like when my mind is on something else But I gave this one a really good try, and I found that it wasn t too bad, once I get past all the things that don t mesh well between me and Hoffman s writing This book centers around a boarding school in New England, a quiet one where the rich kids are sent and silently scorned by the townies When a young boy is found d I want to like Alice Hoffman books but they re really hard for me to get into I d like to think that I just read them at bad times, like when my mind is on something else But I gave this one a really good try, and I found that it wasn t too bad, once I get past all the things that don t mesh well between me and Hoffman s writing This book centers around a boarding school in New England, a quiet one where the rich kids are sent and silently...

    This is one of the most poorly edited books I ve ever tried to read So many paragraphs seemed unconnected to the ones before or after them sometimes the topic seemed to shift mid paragraph In once case, a sentence contradicted the one immediately preceding it on page 74 Carlin no longer bothered to reply to her employer then she never replied to her employer Verbal clunkiness abounds.A...

    there s so much that I wanted to like about this book the characters, the story, the themes were all so layered and interesting I originally thought I would like the fluid, almost lyrical writing style, instead I was constantly wondering who s voice was leading me, and who all the varied characters were I almost put it down several times it took me weeks to read, instead of my usual couple few days but the potential resolution of the story kept me interested just not my cup of tea, I think there s so much that I wanted to like about this book the characters, the story, the themes were all so layered and interesting I originally thought I would like the fluid, almost lyrical writing style, in...

    I just finished this book, and I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed The book started off intriguingly enough with the story unfolding with the tragic local legend of Annie Howe and her untimely death Her death somewhat relates to another character in the story, and sets the stage to create a misty sad atmosphere The tension between the town folk and the Hadden School is briefly explained in the begining of the novel, and far less interesting than it promises Based on other reviews it I just finished this book, and I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed The book started off intriguingly enough with the story unfolding with the tragic local legend of Annie Howe and her untimely death Her death somewhat relates to another character in the story, and sets the stage to create a misty sad at...

    I felt correctly so that The River King would be a great choice for a Sunday afternoon I very much enjoy Hoffman s work, but hadn t read any of it for quite some time before picking this tome up Her books are rather easy reading, but are well and intelligently written They also deal with a lot of importan...
