Der Klang des Schnees eBook Ó Der Klang Kindle -

Der Klang des Schnees I read this book in grade 10 English Honors yeah that s right.I remember the author came to our classroom and we asked him about some of the metaphors our teacher told us about He told us that they weren t intended to be metaphors That s when I realized that writers write and readers find the meaning Especially if you re teaching an Honors class. I read Icefields a couple of years ago and can t honestly rememberthan a few basic details about the characters and plot But Wharton s writing perfectly matched the sparse, beautiful setting in the Canadian Rockies to take me to another place Reading the book was a meditative, spiritual experience. Rating 3.3 5In the end, there isn t really much substance here The premise is boring, and all in all this isn t ordinarily a book that I would even look twice at, but, for Canadian Lit, which I m taking as a mandatory course, I ve had to read it.To its credit, the writing style is tolerable, even though it s written in the post modernist style, which involves a lot of fragmentation in both the sentences and the narrative but, honestly, I don t know how the writer could have made a whole boo Rating 3.3 5In the end, there isn t really much substance here The premise is boring, and all in all this isn t ordinarily a book that I would even look twice at, but, for Canadian Lit, which I m taking as a mandatory course, I ve had to read it.To its credit, the writing style is tolerable, even though it s written in the post modernist style, which involves a lot of fragmentation in both the sentences and the narrative but, honestly, I don t know how the writer could have made a whole book out of this Word count wise, it probably isn t worth the 270 pages it fills up, and, if shortened on the repetitive and I don t give a shit details about the icefields themselves, it would make a better short story Some things like romance and WWI and character development is thrown in, but most of it feels like an aside, or like a last minute thought, rather than the whole point of the story Because of its connection to Native American narratives which I liked I can understand why we re studying it for this class, but that doesn t mean I like it overall Literally, just the Native American parts are what I liked, but those are over within the first third or so of the book, with the rest focusing on the white man adventurer protagonist and how obsessed he is with ice.I don t know, maybe some people are into it and like this sort of thing, but for me, I don t even plan on picking it, or anything like it, up ever again unless, of course sighs I have to for school or something I loved having this to read as we journeyed through the Canadian Rockies and the Columbia Icefield The idea for this book and the plot that resulted are fascinating Unfortunately, the writing is below par and the changes in characters and time periods is confusing I really like to read about an area that I m visiting, preferably something fictional, as I feel I get the passion of the settingclearly I did love that actual historical figures are woven into this story, and it was pretty t I loved having this to read as we journeyed through the Canadian Rockies and the Columbia Icefield The idea for this book and the plot that resulted are fascinating Unfortunately, the writing is below par and the changes in characters and time periods is confusing I really like to read about an area that I m visiting, preferably something fictional, as I feel I get the passion of the settingclearly I did love that actual historical figures are woven into this story, and it was pretty thrilling to be visiting locales that play such an important part in this novel Read this book for a university English course and must say, it was magic I absolutely loved and so has everyone I recommended it to.
