Key Porter Books, 2007 - Fiction - 243 pages. But Davey is on a different path.
Key Porter Books, 2007 - Fiction - 243 pages. Set against the backdrop of a post-independent African country, Unfeeling is a narrative that captures the moral, political, and social complexity of a nation torn apart by violence. Sixteen-year-old Davey Baker is in the attic when the militia comes to Edenfields to "reclaim" his family's farm. Locked in shock, he witnesses the brutal murder of both his parents. From inside the book.
An uncomfortable book as its world is modern Zimbabwe seen mainly through the eyes of the 16 year old white farmer's son who survives his parents' massacre, feels responsible and has to act. A very uncomfortable book as it makes the reader aware too of the violence of the previous white rule by sjambok. A body lies heaped, face down on the carpet beside the bed. The first thing he registers is disgust at the dog licking, gnawing at the butchered mass of meat, bones sticking from the split scalp down to the lower back. There's not a patch of skin, but a wide stretch of rutted red, pink.
Read Holding On from the story Feeling by expressiveangel (ishani sharma) with 16 reads. feelings, deep, inspirational. All my thought and feelings in one book. There might be mistakes so sorry for that in advance.
Under the guise of giving the farm land back to the indiginous people, the land is forcefully taken back, regardless of the cost to the (colonial) owners. Holding does an amazing job of creating a tight timeline that jumps forwards and backwards, withholding facts until the reader absolutely needs them, and in all, creating an incredible story.
