Gregory Maguire ¿ 5 review

review Hiddensee ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Gregory Maguire In this imaginative novel rooted in the rich soil of early nineteenth century German Romanticism beloved New York Times bestselling author Gregory Maguire twins an origin legend of the famous Nutcracker with the life of Drosselmeier the toymaker who carves himGregory Maguire’s novels have been called bewitching remarkable extraordinary engrossing amazing and delicious Having brought his legions of devoted readers to Oz in Wicked Wonderland in After Alice and Dickensian London in Lost Maguire now takes us to the Black Forest of Ba. Rating 255 starsI picked up this book because I was looking for a retelling of the Nutcracker to get me in the Christmas spirit I should ve known better than to trust Maguire to instill holiday cheer into anything he writes I was definitely not filled with cheer and goodwill while reading this which was a disappointment I should ve seen comingWas this a bad book No It retold a familiar story in a new and unfamiliar way from the perspective of Drosselmeier the toy maker who crafted the eponymous Nutcracker And Drosselmeier s story was an interesting one But just as he had an incredibly difficult time connecting emotionally to other people so did I with his story I found it intellectually compelling but emotionally unsatisfying I ve enjoyed Maguire s work in the past Wicked was in my opinion an incredibly original retelling of a story that has been told so often that it lost a bit of its life and flavor Wicked revitalized the Wizard of Oz for me giving it a depth that I had missed Elphaba was a far richer character than I would have expected and I always enjoy seeing both heroes and villains in a different light as Maguire presented both Dorothy and the Wicked Witch along with various other characters made famous in the original That s what I was hoping for from Hiddensee but it s not what I got I wanted depth and richness added to a tale I love And indeed Maguire did add aspects to the old tale that were interesting as I said before But I just didn t care about Drosselmeier like I yearned to I didn t see the Nutcracker in a new light that surprised and delighted me I saw him given a new purpose but he was lifeless in the pages of this book And honestly the tone of this book reminded me of Uprooted which I hated If you loved Uprooted you might really enjoy this bookOne of the amazing things about fairy tales and folk tales is their ability to entrance us and move us in a very limited number of pages Hiddensee felt both too long for a fairy tale and too short for a deeper compelling novel leaving it on a shaky middle ground where it was unable to keep its footing Of course this is a personal opinion as all of my reviews are But now I feel the need to track down the original story to rid myself of the sour residue left by Maguire s book so I can reclaim a story I love If anyone has another retelling of this story that they love please share it with me I don t want my vision of the Nutcracker to stiffen with age Original review can be found at Booknest Sunjata Penguin Classics yearned to I didn t see the Nutcracker in a new light that surprised and delighted me I saw him given a new purpose but he was lifeless in the pages of this book And honestly the tone of this book reminded me of Uprooted which I hated If geoff buda ve ben you loved Uprooted Perky you might really enjoy this bookOne of the amazing things about fairy tales and folk tales is their ability to entrance us and move us in a very limited number of pages Hiddensee felt both too long for a fairy tale and too short for a deeper compelling novel leaving it on a shaky middle ground where it was unable to keep its footing Of course this is a personal opinion as all of my reviews are But now I feel the need to track down the original story to rid myself of the sour residue left by Maguire s book so I can reclaim a story I love If anyone has another retelling of this story that they love please share it with me I don t want my vision of the Nutcracker to stiffen with age Original review can be found at Booknest

Hiddensee

review Hiddensee ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Gregory Maguire Varia and Munich of the Brothers Grimm and E T A Hoffman Hiddensee recreates the backstory of the Nutcracker reimaging how this entrancing creature came to be carved and how it magically guided an ailing little girl named Klara through a dreamy paradise on a snowy Christmas Eve It also brings to life the mysterious godfather Drosselmeier the ominous canny one eyed toymaker made immortal by Petipa and Tchaikovsky’s ballet who presents the once and future Nutcracker to Klara his goddaughterBut Hiddensee is not just a retelling of a. Young Herr Drosselmeyer travels around meeting people some are interesting most are not Klara shows up in the last few pages a sickly ray of sunshine but by then it s too late I kept wondering why the author wanted to revisit this tale if he couldn t be bothered to breathe a little life into the story The Coda however was lovely and almost but not uite made me want to tack on an extra star

Summary Hiddensee

review Hiddensee ë PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Download ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ¿ Gregory Maguire Classic story Maguire discovers in the flowering of German Romanticism a migrating strain of a Hellenic mystery cult and ponders a profound uestion how a person who is abused by life short changed and challenged can access secrets that benefit the disadvantaged and powerless Ultimately Hiddensee offers a message of hope If the compromised Godfather Drosselmeier can bring an enchanted Nutcracker to a young girl in distress perhaps everyone however lonely or marginalized on the eve of a winter holiday has something precious to share. CRAP CRAP CRAP Why did I trick myself into reading this utter nonsense Why After Alice his Alice in Wonderland adaptation was bad enough another 1 star review but I was lured in by the premise of a backstory to the nutcracker I m an idiot I should have stayed clear My god this story hardly anything to do with the nutcracker and the first 200 pages was about a boy named Dirk wandering the countryside no mention of A nutcracker or THE nutcracker OR Christmas NOTHING ZILCH Literally dumb I hate this I m never tricking myself into reading his stuff again Avoid if you know what s good for you
