    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts ‘’Rollrock is a lonely island of cliffs and storms blunt fishermen and their fierce wives Life is hard for the families who must wring a poor living from the stormy seas But Rollrock is also a place of magic’’When I read and adored Kirsty Logan’s The Gloaming my dear friend Marina recommended Margo Lanagan’s The Brides of Rollrock Island because she knows how much I love myths islands and selkies I can honestly say one time that Marina knows me frighteningly well If you love island communities the Scottish landscape myths and tales witches weird births seals and selkies or if you just need to read a uality tale then you need this book in your lifeIn an island that definitely resembles the Scottish Hebrides a community is torn asunder by Misskaella’s abilities to turn seals into beautiful

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts If you have any expectations of what this book will be like based on the cover throw them away You won't find a dreamy romantic fairy tale retelling here It's like this type of crazy business going onRecipe for a twisted dark fairy tale 1 One crazy witch2 Stupid men who think with the wrong head3 Seals I'm being serious the actual sea creatures4 Blank eyed women who are willing to serve their men Stepford Wife style Confused yet? Trust me I was confused for the first couple of chapters Once I started figuring out what was going on I found myself disturbingly aroused uh scared uh interested Basically this nasty crazy witch woman can call up seals and cut them open These seals then pop out these extremely sensual looking women who are willing to cling to the first person they seebond with Yes it's like mail order brides except of a local affair Needless to say the men were ALL over this trend Islander number 1 Hey F

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea HeartsThere’s no uestion in my mind that this book is brilliantly written I’ve been consistently impressed and moved by Margo Lanagan’s prose since my first experience with her work a few years ago and this book does not disappoint in that regard However and this will actually be a positive for many readers – this book is far tame and accessible than Tender Morsels It’s even accessible than the short story of hers that I read in Zombies vs Unicorns last year And that’s not to say that this book is all softness and happiness and rainbows – far from it But compared to the other t

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts45 stars”Was she beautiful the sea maid? Fair strange Doris had said and I thought that was a fine assessment Fair strange I think that’s a fine assessment of Sea Hearts too beautiful in or for its unusualnessIt’s proving extremely difficult to review Sea Hearts titled The Brides of Rollrock Island in the US in isolation and not hold it up against Lanagan’s previous novel Tender Morsels Though I read the latter earlier this year I still haven’t been able to wrangle my thoughts into review form beyond being able to say that it’s one of the most powerful di

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts The Brides of Rollrock Island is one of those novels that left me with the thought that there is no possible word in the English language that could even attempt to summon up the strange ethereal and mystifying experience that is chronicled in this book As my first venture into Lanagan’s world I have to admit that Brides simply blew me away leaving me utterly breathless It is a slow intriguing tale that often reminded me of Darwin’s An Origin of Species since in

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea HeartsThe back of the book says we see the deepest of human cruelty but also of love Wrong there is no love in this bookIf you like the last episode of Twin Peaks you'll like this book That's not exactly a good thing This novel takes 'cerebral' to a whole other degreeFirst off there's a difference between throwing your reader into a novel's world no holds bar and throwing a reader into a world and not caring if they understand what on earth is going on Only half way through the book will you begin to even become comfortable in the world about 200 or so pages in which is no

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts45 StarsMelancholy If I had to capture Margo Lanagan’s The Brides of Rollrock Island in one word melancholy would be the one Melancholy is sad but also thoughtful; beautiful and heartbreaking–as was this tale The Brides of Rollrock Island isn’t a streamlined book Told from six varying points of view our tale begins in the middle reverses to the beginning and moves forward to the end with a motion that indicates that this is a story that has happened before and one that can happen again The age old adage that history is doomed to repeat itself is ever present in Lanagan’s book–we know roughly what will happen because it has all happened before and we end with the unshakable knowledge that it is only a matter of time before events take a

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea HeartsWhen you read a Margo Lanagan book you expect it to both confuse and enthrall you And THE BRIDES OF ROLLROCK ISLAND delivers that head spinning gut churning fizzy brained mixture of “what in the world is going on?” and “did she really go there?” and “oh my go

    MOBI ☆ DOC Sea Hearts Paperback FREE ☆ CITYBELLS Sea Hearts I got this on audio from AudioBookSync Wow this book is weird There's something peculiarly haunting about selkie folklore I can picture a careworn exhausted mother telling the story to her daughter Once the women could swim free before they were robbed of their skins I can see a father still mourning the loss of his wife from childbirth telling it to his young son The women don't want to leave their husbands and children but they're torn and the sea is in their nature and someday they must return to it The symbolism of the story is so very direct when the man sees the selkie women carefree and beautiful and happy he is enchanted and his enchantment uickly turns to acuisitive lust He steals a skin and t
