READ & DOWNLOAD The Shore READ & DOWNLOAD µ The Shore Nd addiction to secure a sense of well being for themselves and for those they loveTogether their stories form a deeply affecting legacy of two barrier island families illuminating 150 years of their many freedoms and constraints heartbreaks and pleasures Conjuring a wisdom and beauty all its own The Shore is a richly uniue stunning novel that will resonate with readers long after turning its final pages establishing Sara Taylor as a promising new voice in fiction. There are many characters that populate this very assured debut novel but none of them is enduring and unforgettable than the shore itself Within these chapters characters ebb and flow like the ocean itself plunging in head first to reveal themselves to the reader and then receding to safe or not so safe shoreIndeed the structure of the book follows this ebb and flow starting in current times withdrawing to 1876 advancing to a horrific dystopian future in 2143 introducing different players almost willy nilly If you enjoy linear books this is not a novel for you However if you have a high tolerance for books that flow seamlessly back and forth before revealing all their secrets you re going to love this oneMs Taylor writes The Shore is flat as a fried egg on a clear day from one upstairs porch it feels like you can see into tomorrow and usually you can just about see the smart smear that is Chincoteague Island off to the northeast We are one of three islands off the coast of Virginia and just south of Maryland trailing out into the Atlantic Ocean like someone s dripped paint The island comes alive under Ms Taylor s deft hand the smell of the salt water the crabs crawling up the shore the noxious smell of Perdue chicken from the killing factory All the while the author integrates different styles and tenses from historical to suspenseful from southern gothic to dystopian from fantastical to conventional There s also a wisp of feminism philosophy contained within many of these woman are fighting for survival and self actualization and in one case and a few have special skills such as herb doctoring and controlling the weather As the novel progresses clues are dropped how all these stories link and a universal theme is introducedOne of the reasons I chose The Shore is that it was compared to David Mitchell and Jennifer Egan s works I m a fan of both However I did not really see the connection to either except for the experimental form of storytelling If I had to compare to another author it would be Flannery O Connor with a touch of Alice Hoffman Sara Taylor knows how to tell a story to rev up the reader s interest and importantly she knows how to sock the reader right between the eyes with some of her story endings It s an imaginative novel inventive creative and beautifully controlled and paced by the author By the third or fourth chapter I was willing to suspend belief and let Sara Taylor take me anywhere she chose to go

READ & DOWNLOAD The Shore READ & DOWNLOAD µ The Shore Welcome to The Shore a collection of small islands sticking out from the coast of Virginia into the Atlantic Ocean Where clumps of evergreens meet wild ponies oyster shell roads tumble down houses unwanted pregnancies murder storm making and dark magic in the marshes Situated off the coast of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay the group of islands known as the Shore has been home to generations of fierce and resilient women Sanctuary to some but nightmare to others it's a. i chose this book thinking it was going to have a Winesburg Ohio vibe a series of linked stories that make up a larger novel feel in which desperate characters both love and resent their isolated hometowns and suffer beautifullyand in some ways that expectation panned out structurally it holds up although this is definitely novel than short story collection although it is made up of short self contained vignettes they would lose something if this had been marketed as a collection there is too much foreshadowing that will pay off in later narratives and there are little aha moments peppered throughout that would be overlooked if these were read as stories in isolationand these characters do indeed suffer this is an unremittingly bleak novel and i think it is a lot grimmer than anything in winesburg so be prepared for that this coverkind of promises a book that is somewhere between women s fiction and grit lit but even though grit lit rarely takes place on tiny islands off the coast of virginia this is definitely flying under the grit lit banner there s meth and everything this other coveris a really bad match to the book s contents and is sure to attract the wrong readers who will most likely be horrified by what transpires here it s a gorgeous cover i just worry that it doesn t scream here be horrorsedit i am only just now seeing that bloody tooth in the corner i didn t see it when it was just goodreads size on the book s page but looking at it in the larger size yeah i actually dig it disregard my complaints plzbecause there are some terrifically harsh scenes in this book the story is primarily concerned with the women who live in on the shore which is the name given to this small group of islands over the course of 250 years as the stories flit back and forth through time we will visit and revisit these women at different stages in their lives their families the conseuences of their actions coming home to roost generations later we will witness murder assault poverty addiction and smaller everyday disappointments but then other elements start to creep in sort of uiet magical realism moments and it s a little unclear at first if we are supposed to be reading them as the traditions and beliefs of an isolated population or if we are to accept them as magic exists and then all of a sudden BOOM with no warning i mean apart from the table of contents we are in 2037 and who saw that coming except for people who read the table of contents and then BOOM the final chapter takes place in 2143 so wowwith these things in mind it reads like One Hundred Years of Solitude or Cloud Atlas than winesburg but i wasn t disappointed just because my expectations weren t met i am freuently wrong in my assessments and if i had picked up that shell cover but i wouldn t because it does not speak to me at all i would have been even incorrect in my expectationsit s full of gorgeous prose and very sad stories which are my personal brand of raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens and even though i felt a little

Southern grit lit at its best If you like generations of a very disturbed and disturbing family in your reading selections this fits the bill Murder mayhem mysticism meth heads and malevolence fill the chaptersThe lay out of the chapters really interconnected vignettes would be what I first disliked and then ended up much appreciating by the end This book makes your brain work Something like 20 characters are introduced at different points in their lives not chronologically and without much explanation of to whom or how they are related Since neither my ARC nor my ebook included a family tree in the front I think the finished book does I took many notes on each chapter and referred back often It became an adventure and a uniue experience trying to figure out how each piece of the puzzle fit together And by the end chapters keeping track of the people was no longer a problemThe Shore s remote setting three islands that are part of Chesapeake Bay in Virginia is the real star with oyster shell paved paths and an underlying wildness that its inhabitants have inheritedThe ARC I received from LibraryThing literally fell apart after one chapter thus the delay in my ability to read and review this until it became available on NetGalley But from that first chapter I was intent on finishing the book an original debut sure to put Sara Taylor s name among the greats of this genre
