Read Washington Black

Washington Black Review Ó PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Esi Edugyan Ü 2 Free download Nd finally to a remote outpost in the Arctic where Wash left on his own must invent another new life one which will propel him further across the globe From the sultry cane fields of the Caribbean to the frozen Far North Washington Black tells a story of friendship and betrayal love and redemption of a world destroyed and made whole again and asks the uestion what is true freedom. This is the Man Booker title that I was the most trepidatious about picking up this year not because I doubted its uality but just because there is nothing about a nineteenth century Caribbean and North American set historical fiction adventure tale that appeals to me So with that said I guess I did enjoy this than I expected to just not enough to really understand its inclusion on the Booker shortlist over structurally innovative and intellectually stimulating titlesThis book s greatest asset ironically ended up being a detriment for me and that was the fact that it s incredibly well written The thing that immediately struck me about this book was how incongruously poised its first person narration is Though the character Washington does show a natural intelligence throughout the story one does have to uestion where an uneducated boy born into slavery picked up vocabulary words like unconscionable inviolate incandescence leadenly and disconsolate these are only a portion of the ones I highlighted which jumped out at me and I wasn t even including dialogue from other characters So while I would describe the prose as smart and pleasurable to read and while I d seek out books by Edugyan in the future for this factor alone I don t think it suited this particular bookBut my bigger problem with Washington Black is the way that the plot seemed to drive the characters throughout the narrative and not the other way around To describe this premise and execution as contrived is an understatement As I was reading I felt like I could constantly see Edugyan s hand manipulating these characters into the situations that they found themselves in and this never ended up feeling like anything other than outlandish fiction I have no problem with coincidences and fate being used by an author deliberately and thematically see The Heart s Invisible Furies but it s a fine line to walk and if this is what Edugyan was attempting I m afraid her efforts ended up seeming to me like plot devices than divine interventionIt s a pacey and readable book from beginning to end especially the end I loved the last few chapters uite a lot but the narrative structure of character zips along from place to place encountering uirky characters who uickly come and go will never be my favorite formula and though there s occasionally incisive commentary on the relationship between white abolitionists and freed slaves in the nineteenth century none of it is really groundbreaking enough that I feel terribly enriched for having read this I could have forgiven it a lot for being an entertaining story through and through but despite the fact that I breezed through it in two days it was a thoroughly lukewarm reading experience that I doubt will stay with me in any kind of significant way
