[Free Kindle] ♼ Critical Injuries ☪ After Years Of Trauma And Disappointment, Year Old Isla Is Finally Content In Her Second Marriage To Lyle Year Old Roddy Is A Faltering Student And Occasional Shoplifter Simply Trying To Make Sense Of His Past Their Worlds Collide One Hot August Afternoon When A Fake Robbery Goes Wrong I did like this book, but not as much as the reviews led me to believe I would I really didn t find it funny at all, except once in a while with a smart ass comment by the main character, Isla The alternating chapters by Isla and Roddy were interesting, but I did not find the 17 year old Roddy s voice very authentic He was way too introspective for a goalless teen with serious impulse control problems. I enjoyed reading this book i liked how the chapters were divided between the two main characters, but I think that this will be one that I will quickly forget I was also disappointed that Roddys voice wasn t included at the end, especially because I found his struggle to be the most interesting. ,. I remember starting this book in the spring of 94 when I was away with my daughter in Elora, Ontario.It held my interest and I finished it when I got homeOctober 2k10 I discarded the book moving. I didn t think much of it I felt the story didn t really go anywhere and didn t have much substance, nor did much happen throughout I would not recommend this book Surprised it was a Booker Award Book. Parallel stories of two people a 17 year old boy and the 49 year old woman he inadvertently shot while committing a robbery He is condemned to jail while she is condemned to life in a wheelchair The story moves back and forth between them It s about loss, loyalty, coincidences, consequences and the possibility of redemption The woman s daughter she calls herself Starglow has a need to bring them together, to make everything okay in her own cosmic way.It s an interesting story, in part because it doesn t even flirt with sentimentality. I thought the book was well written and held my attention but I think I was expecting.
