Talk about Monkeys


Lonesome Orange Kid
I read Evening a while ago and so I expected a richer story from Monkeys. I should have realized from the length of the book that this was a different approach. There is a lot to which Minot alludes but too much is left out for me to care deeply for the monkeys.Others, though, have said that the story is a touching picture of one family.
Qag
Wonderfully crafted story of a large (seven children), privileged family through the decades of the 50s through perhaps 80s. The work is roughly autobiographical, capturing quite believably the characters and interaction within this tribe.
Yojin
Life is too short for bad fiction. There is no character development, no plot, no sense of place or time and nothing to draw in the reader. Move on to something else.
Wild Python
Loved this book - right up there as one of my favorites. A quick read - short stories that give snap shots into these kids lives. Very nostalgic - a wonderful summer read!
AnnyMars
Poor character development. Rambles. I had to force myself to finish the book and did so mostly because I paid for it.

Quit after the first chapter. If you have not hooked the reader by then, you better start over.

This book was very well written. I enjoyed the characters and their experiences. Great and easy read for those who want something different.
The story was one I could relate to. Large family and their upbringing .Unexpected things happen within the family. Very much what life is about.
