    PDF/EPUB Bonheur D'occasion MOBI Ü à 59pic.co à bonheur kindle, d'occasion pdf, Bonheur D'occasion EpubThis is a book that got stronger as I read further into it The novel takes place right at the end of the depression and the beginning of WWII The LaCosse family at the center of the novel has gotten poorer as the years and the children added up It was this poverty that that prevailedShe was brooding over the fact that poverty is like a pain dormant and not unbearable as long as you don't move about too much You grow used to it you end up by paying no attention to it But once you presume to bring it out in the daylight it becomes terrifying you see it at last in all its sualor and you shrink from exposing it to the sunI might have wanted from the prose and I was tempted to blame the translator Then I remembered that I'm not likely to give the translator credit when

How does it affect one's psyche? The author of this book shows the devastating affects of poverty on one family but the author does it in a loving way I read this book through many tearsAnother theme is war Why do the poor fight? It can't for loyalty to the country who has crushed their dreams in the past Who benefits from war? Is it the soldiers or is the ones who stay home and make money? The book was originally written in French but my translation is so good that I found it hard to believe it wasn't written in English Highly recommended

    PDF/EPUB Bonheur D'occasion MOBI Ü à 59pic.co à bonheur kindle, d'occasion pdf, Bonheur D'occasion EpubGabrielle Roy has marvelous powers of description that make winter wind snow cold and choking city smoke descend and engulf the reader as well as her fictional characters Just as invasive are her powers of discernment which take the reader right inside the thoughts and desperation of a family caught inside the slums of Montreal during the depression that preceded world war two This is a Canadian classic one of the finest books ever written However don't expect to lift your head from its last page feeling any optimistic about life than you did before

    PDF/EPUB Bonheur D'occasion MOBI Ü à 59pic.co à bonheur kindle, d'occasion pdf, Bonheur D'occasion EpubThis book really surprised me I feel like not a lot happens and a lot of the characters aren't very likeable but I really liked this book The language is incredibly artful and I found myself just underlining random sections of the page that struck me as being particularly beautiful The depiction of the poor was very heart wrenching and combined with some of the sentimental familylove stuff and the french flavour of Montreal makes this book feel like a Canadian version of Les Miserables my favourite book The early WWII atmosphere with the recruitment efforts and characters leaving to join the army does a great job of affecting my emotions as I read it It's just the tragedy of war mixed with the thrill of adventure the sense of duty and the need for money by any means really combine to make a good emotional cocktail in a story that already does a good job of touching emotionsAs far as characters go I wasn't a big fan of Florentine or Jean I found both of them to
