CHARACTERS ☆ The Air You Breathe CHARACTERS Ó FUTBOLENTRELINEAS.CO ´ Frances de Pontes Peebles REVIEW The Air You Breathe The story of an intense female friendship fueled by affection envy and pride and each woman's fear that she would be nothing without the otherSkinny nine year old orphaned Dores is working in the kitchen of a sugar plantation in 1930s Brazil when in walks a girl who changes everything Graça the spoiled daughter of a wealthy sugar baron is clever well fed pretty and thrillingly ill behaved Born to wildly different worlds 4 nobody puts Samba in a corner stars We open with Dores an orphan living and working on a sugar plantation in Brazil To say she s had a rough go of it would the the understatement of the year Graca is the new owners daughter she is charming lively spunky sassy incredibly willful and privileged and spoiled to a fault Dores and Graca form an unlikely and unshakable bond that will carry them through the hardships of the 1930s and 40s in Brazil and Hollywood Through the rise and fall of Graca becoming an esteemed performer known as Sofia Salvador A bond that will stay with Dores for the entirety of her life despite Graca s untimely demise When we are young we give ourselves completely We allow our first friends or first lovers or first songs inside us to become a part of our unformed being without ever thinking of the conseuences or of their permanence within usThis is told solely from the POV of Dores she has aged and is facing the end of her life As she reflects back on the ups and downs the most notable contribution to her life is Graca Peebles wove two incredibly complex and layered characters Their relationship is full of juxtapositions pain and heartbreak beauty and rebirthWhile the story is told solely from Dores point of view Peebles did an excellent job of highlighting the multi dimensional character that is Graca Sofia Salvador At times she seems vain vapid and one note at others she seems to have a depth unreachable by Dores a pain only a true artist can understand and a soul that truly needs to be loved We all carry our burdens differently and in ways that surprise us The choices we make in life as in the studio are never isolated though they might appear to be as we are making them Nothing stands alone no note no melody no beat no decision they all flow together in the end They must The Air You Breathe is a supreme example of a character driven novel While the plot has its fair share of intrigue what grabs you and keeps you there is the gut wrenching story of the bonds of friendship the trials of privilege racism fame and fortune There is a heavy focus on music in general most notably the Samba and it s evident not only in the words written but in the way they were written as well To me the sign of an excellently written character driven novel is that you notice that characters come in every form Peebles created secondary characters out of music out of the Samba the setting the time period and it s impossible not to get swept up in it We all take things for granted that come too easilyThis ultimately loses a star for me because while I did feel transported and Peebles wove two intricate characters and a beautiful story things got a bit bogged down for me by the sheer amount of detail there was There were a few times throughout that I wanted to get the show on the road and have a bit forward progression in the story I think if Peebles had cut down a bit on various setting details it would ve made for a fluid and concise readThis was truly marvelous and anyone with an appreciation of historical fiction tales of friendship and betrayal or a love of music would enjoy this The story telling and prose were beautiful whimsical and solid all at the same time I am left
