    MOBI tyrakel.de ☆ Brooklyn Epub µ brooklyn free, Brooklyn KindleThis is a charming simple story about a sweet straightforward young woman – until the final section when it sears the reader’s heart and soars into another realmThe first part is a delightful picture of small town Ireland in the 1950s The middle two parts chart Eilis’ arrival and settling in to life and study in Brooklyn Not much happens It’s well done but I couldn’t see what all the fuss was about Then she is unexpectedly summoned home The situation and dilemmas arising could be crass predictable and dull or overly sentimental or just implausible They are none of those things The ending was brave and brilliant and pushed the book from 35 to 5 The most powerful aspect for me was view spoilerbig spoiler comin

    MOBI tyrakel.de ☆ Brooklyn Epub µ brooklyn free, Brooklyn Kindle Brooklyn starts out as a nice little slice of life in Ireland in the early 50’s Then Eilis the younger of two sisters living at home with their mother has a whole new life arranged for her in New York It took rather a stiff upper lip for a young woman to cross the stormy seas and settle in a foreign land where the only person she knew was the priest who arranged the whole thing Sea sickness gave way to homesickness but her strength of character prevailed The story then settled into how she built her new life complete with a job at a clothing store night classes to learn bookkeeping relations with her catty fellow boarders and ultimately with Tony his brothers and the Dodgers It was a innocent era even in the big city At that point I was wondering if it was possible to be nostalgic for a time and place you’ve never experienced People were generally nicer; thoughtful Then again I wondered whether an era like that when polite behavior and higher standards wer
