    PaperbackÖ Snow Angels Epub ↠ snow mobile, angels kindle, Snow Angels PDFThis is the second novel I've read by Stewart O'Nan after Last Night at the Lobster While I enjoyed Lobster it really is a trifle compared to Snow Angels which is an immensely uiet powerful book Essentially it tells the story of two relationships both disintegrating set against the backdrop of rural Pennsylvania in the 70's my onetime hometown of Bloomington MN makes an appearance as does that pansy Fran Tarkenton getting chased down by the Steelers D In it's way Snow Angels reminded me of Edith Wharton's Ethan Frome with the small town and big secrets; the insular lives; the omnipresent snow and cold; the lonely single road that leads to Tragedy The story is told in part by Arthur Parkinson who relates the story in flashback He tells his own story of his parent's divorce of his first love Lila and his memories of Annie his one time babysitter who is murdered

    PaperbackÖ Snow Angels Epub ↠ snow mobile, angels kindle, Snow Angels PDFArthur Parkinson was 14 when his former beloved babysitter Annie was murdered This we discover at the outset of this book The story is narrated throughout by the adult Arthur and some of the other prime characters It focuses on the period surrounding this slaying and also the traumatic divorce of the young Artie O'Nan proficiently conveyed the emotional impact that each person was experiencing His handling of the actions and behavior of this adolescent boy was particularly vivid and astute For the most part the characters in this novel residents of a small Western Pennsyvania town lived grueling hand to mouth existences Each seemed to lack the inner resources to deal with problematic interpersonal relationshipsproblem solving or worse with profound tragedy The lat

    PaperbackÖ Snow Angels Epub ↠ snow mobile, angels kindle, Snow Angels PDFA good book to read if you want to see how elastic point of view can become in the hands of a skillful writer O'Nan easily moves from the rotating third person often distant to the point of omniscience present tense viewpoint of one storyline that of the multiple tragedies that befall Glenn and Annie Marchand to the first person past tense account of 14 year old Arthur Parkinson narrating at a remove of some decades the ordinary tragedy of his parents' unraveling marriage after 23 years All of this takes place in a marvelously evoked late 1970s setting of small town PennsylvaniaAt the book's midpoint O'Nan delivers the first of two almost unbearable scenes proving the maxim that extreme emotion is best portrayed by paradoxically using neutral language He also shifts briefly into the future tense moving to the story present of middle aged Arthur as he looks back on t

    PaperbackÖ Snow Angels Epub ↠ snow mobile, angels kindle, Snow Angels PDFMy first impression of this book was that it was meant for 6th graders The font size used was huge and made it appear as if it had 10 words per pageOnce I started reading it I realized I wasn't too far off While the subject matter is too much of a downer for a nine year old the way the story was written would have made them feel right at home The sentences were choppy and had no weight to themThere were so many missed opportunities that could have made this book a knockout but were simply washed away The deaths of several characters were described in at most 2 simply written paragraphs I was left with a feeling of wanting or really SOMETHING and getting handed simply a statementYou don't

    PaperbackÖ Snow Angels Epub ↠ snow mobile, angels kindle, Snow Angels PDFI really enjoyed O' Nan's non fiction so I was excited to read this If you are looking for a book that will make you feel warm and fuzzy has a moral or is inspiring this is not itThis book was dark and depressing Nothing turned out well for any of the charactersAfter I finished it I was like what was the point of that I felt it kind of left you up in the air and nothing was resolved O'Nan writes well just not a very uplifting story
