    eBook Mary Gaitskill æ The Mare Kindle ´ æ mare free, The Mare ePUBAudiobooknarrated by Kyla Garcia Christa Lewis Sean Pratt and Nicol Zanzarellaand the physical hardcover I loved BOTH the AUDIOBOOK and THE PHYSICAL BOOK The four Audiobook narrators were each excellent telling Velvet’s story Each voice was so different and distinct adding zesty seasonings of moods emotions points of view and atmosphere enriching the novel as it unfolds The physical book was great too — allowing a different type of personal intimacy between me the reader and the characters a little deeper I was able to ‘stop’ in mid sentence and reflect easier than when the audiobook continued to run But I really Love BOTH CHOICESTHIS IS SUCH A HEARTFELT NOVELemotional in that everyone starts off so broken And everyone needs everyone This is the first book I’ve read by Mary Gaitskilland I look forward to reading of her booksWhat I especially love besides the storytelling the complexities explored was the way the author brings us into each of the characters inner dialogue

    eBook Mary Gaitskill æ The Mare Kindle ´ æ mare free, The Mare ePUB Note this book was reviewed a few years back but as talk of Fall and school starting I wanted to highlight this book which is an excellent young adult book which would be suitable for grades 6 and up highly recommend this bookThis is one of the most powerful books that I’ve read in a very long time Yes it’s a story about a girl and a horse but that is just the tip of what is going on here I hadn’t read Mary Gaitskill before so I was absolutely amazed at her writing Her prose was succinct and yet fluid I’m having trouble describing it because it was very uniue Her characters are so very believable because they are flawed and have many things that they are dealing with besides the interactions with VelvetThe story is told from four perspectives Velvet is an 11 year old from Crown Heights New York what I would refer to as the inner city really dangerous part of town She is a very intelligent but very abused Her mother Sylvia d
