    eBook Esi Edugyan ´ Washington Black eBook Ö ´ washington ebok, black mobile, Washington Black eBookDespite a cover that is currently winking at me with come hither gold foiled clouds this book was one mammoth slog from beginning to end The most generous thing I can find to say is that it fairly zips along but to what purpose I am unsureMuch focus has been placed on why a crime novel like Snap is on the Man Booker longlist but at the moment I am looking askance at this middling historical fiction adventure tale I am not adverse to historical fiction Hilary Mantel being the master in my eyes nor do I distain the odd adventure story

    eBook Esi Edugyan ´ Washington Black eBook Ö ´ washington ebok, black mobile, Washington Black eBookI'm SHOCKED this is on the Man Booker ShortlistThe book has an incredibly strong opening the pacing and character development are pitch perfect a real page turner However about 150 pages in the plot dissolves and morphs into one of those clunky YA narratives this happens then this happens then this happens We're told not shown and this endless chain of events leads NO WHERE I'm pissed 🙃

    eBook Esi Edugyan ´ Washington Black eBook Ö ´ washington ebok, black mobile, Washington Black eBookI was curious about how people reviewed this book and it appears that the Goodreads consensus is a historical adventure story that gets boring as time passes and I would like to say for the record that these reviews are all wrong Yes technically I suppose you can classify this as an adventure story There are journeys across several countries and continents there are searches and escapes there is a cast of eccentric characters But I don't really care much for that kind of story I don't get much of a thrill from blimps or ships or what have you And while clearly Edugyan is piling on these Victorian adventure twists and enjoying it it is not her true purpose It's just the trappings and it seems to me especially from those who seem to find the book getting progressively less interesting that many readers haven't seen the forest for the treesBecause ultimately this is a moving and sad book about how a slave
