Summary Still Life with Tornado

Free download ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook æ A.S. King Still Life with Tornado Read & Download ☆ 104 Sixteen year old Sarah can’t draw This is a problem because as long as she can remember she has ‘done the art’ She thinks she’s having an existential crisis And she might be right; she does keep running into past and future versions of herself as she wanders the urban ruins of PhiladelphiaOr maybe she’s finally waking up to. But now it s been so long that if I bring it up I ll look like a girl who can t let go of things Teenage girls always have to let go of things If we bring up anything people say we re bitches who can t just drop it If you re familiar with AS King then you ll probably understand immediately that this book is not what it first seems If you re new to her books then expect to be taken into a weird world of existentialism and magical realism before what s really going on becomes apparent Her books are not for everyone but I personally love her fresh imaginative take on subjects that have been done to deathAbuse and family are not new topics in YA The genre is filled to the brim with many different books that deal with one or both But King doesn t play by the usual rules Still Life with Tornado is full of strangeness from the very first chapter Sarah is experiencing an existential crisis she has stopped going to school and she s obsessed with the lack of originality in the world around her She wanders around each day meeting various past and future Sarahs ten year old Sarah twenty three year old Sarah etc If this was any other author I would probably have assumed the book was all about internal teen angsting But of course it soon becomes apparent that this is not really a book about Sarah at all Or rather it s about so much than her It s about her absent brother and the reason he left It s about her mother and father and their toxic relationship It s about what happened in Mexico six years agoGradually all of this is revealed The author carefully peels back layers until a story about a teenage girl on a uest for art and originality becomes a dark haunting tale of relationships and sad secrets left festering in the closet for years Ultimately the book looks at the ways people abuse power and the devastating effects of doing so It hit me pretty hard Perhaps so because it seems so uiet and unassuming at first uite literally a still life with tornado The you realize Sarah s role in this story a role she never asked to play the sadder it becomes and I was left feeling uite hollow and drained A very effective emotional book with an experimental style that gets it JUST RIGHTBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Store

Free download ¹ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook æ A.S. King Still Life with Tornado Read & Download ☆ 104 T come to grips with years spent sleepwalking in the ruins of their toxic marriageAs Sarah herself often observes nothing about her pain is remotely original and yet it still hurtsInsightful heartbreaking and ultimately hopeful this is a vivid portrait of abuse survival resurgence that will linger with readers long after the last pag. There are far too many silent sufferers Not because they don t yearn to reach out but because they ve tried and found no one who cares Richelle E GoodrichAS King an award winning and bestselling American author pens a heart wrenching tale of abuse magical realism teenage existential crisis in her new YA novel Still Life with Tornado where the central characters of 16 years of age is a victim of existential crisis who has lost the creativity and power to imagination to create new art all the while internally suffering for the bruises that she got six years ago on a trip to Mexico and also the virulent life that is closing in on her her thereby choking her to a mental paranoia Running away seems the only answer but will all her uestions be answeredSynopsis I am sixteen years old I am a human being Actually Sarah is several human beings At once And only one of them is sixteen Her parents insist she s a gifted artist with a bright future but now she can t draw a thing not even her own hand Meanwhile there s a ten year old Sarah with a filthy mouth a bad sunburn and a clear memory of the family vacation in Mexico that ruined everything She s a ray of sunshine compared to twenty three year old Sarah who has snazzy highlights and a bad attitude And then there s forty year old Sarah makes good ueso dip doesn t wear a bra really wants sixteen year old Sarah to tell the truth about her art teacher They re all wandering Philadelphia along with a homeless artist allegedly named Earl and they re all worried about Sarah s futureBut Sarah s future isn t the problem The present is where she might be having an existential crisis Or maybe all those other Sarahs are trying to wake her up before she s lost forever in the tornado of violence and denial that is her parents marriage I am a human being I am sixteen years old That should be enough Sarah the 16 year old one is running She is not running from herself she is running away from the virulent relationship between her mother and father between whom she is trapped into Sarah faces problem with her creativity as she fails to create any original with her talent instead she follows a homeless painter Earl to a wild road trip only to find conclusion to her own future past and present But the problem lies deep within her mind and her soul where there are three Sarahs a 10 year old a 23 year old and a 40 year old who are trying to let Sarah uench her thirst for the lingering uestions for so long and to find solutions to the existing problems of her lifeSo many diverse characters lying deep within the boundary of one central character each being a stranger to one another From the synopsis itself the book enchanted me with the idea of multiple characters embodied within one but once I trod my way into the story I was taken aback with the surprise that was waiting for me in the folds of this story that is mind it not only purely dark and raw but also extremely real and painful to grasp it into our emotional systems The author s writing style is extraordinary very strong and complete with layers that are revealed one after another in a gradual flow The narrative is highly engaging right from the very beginning and holds the power to uestions it own retrospective voice all the while keeping the readers glued into its deepest core The emotions run deep raw and wild without any limitation and holds the power to drown the readers with its intensity The pacing of the story is bit moderate as the story unravels through tons of layers that only gives depth and insight into the characters lives The characters are extremely well developed with enough realism reflecting through their demeanor The central character who is a 16 year old girl has been voiced strikingly through the storm that is raging on in her mind and soul and also through the distinction among the three other characters lurking deep within herself who are diverse in their manners and behavior But what actually makes Sarah an exceptional character is not her emotional or mental turmoil but the way she handles her life after meeting Earl how she fights to bring balance in her life is brilliantly portrayed Sarah is psychologically flawed yet her flaws and darkness will keep that grip into the readers minds all throughout the story line The other characters especially the mother father lost brother and Earl all play a major role to the story which the author have smartly captivated through Sarah s tale If you think even for once that this book is about abuse then you re wrong marriage and messed up relationships play a huge part in this story while the backdrop being of teenage abuse and mental trauma Although in this story the author draws a fine line that runs closely together between imagination and reality so the readers might get lost into a seedy world of realism and imagination In a nutshell this story is uniue heart breaking enlightening and alluring enough to make the readers feel for the story as well as for the characters and I bet there are many teenager readers who are either facing the same trouble like Sarah or have faced them in the past will relate to this story stronglyVerdict A must read not for the story but for a teenage fractured protagonist Courtesy Thanks to the publishers for giving me an opportunity to read and review this book
