    eBook The Falling Woman PDF Ø The Falling Kindle - ¹ pamyatnik.pro falling pdf, woman ebok, The Falling epub, The Falling Woman PDFThe Falling Woman is a slowish atmospheric read which got hooks into me and wouldn’t let go I love the setting — the archaeological dig the tensions of the excavation team even the awkwardness between the long estranged mother and daughter It feels like the kind of site it is laden with history meaning and maybe even ghosts It’s hard to describe and to do so would be a disservice if you want to read the book I think; the whole point is the slow unwinding the building of tension and uncanniness even threatWhat’s also awesome is that this is a book populated with women — not all female characters but still a good proportion And they talk to each other about things other than men and work and get dirty and bitten by bugs and tired till they ache They like or dislike each other find it difficult to relate enjoy one another’s co

    eBook The Falling Woman PDF Ø The Falling Kindle - ¹ pamyatnik.pro falling pdf, woman ebok, The Falling epub, The Falling Woman PDFThis novel which won the Nebula Award in 1988 has a lot of promise that never uite coheres into a satisfying whole Among its strengths is an impeccably crafted sense of place; I was always vividly immersed in every locale especially the archeological dig of Mayan ruins at which most of the action occurs Another is a clear eyed intimate portrait of two women — a reluctant mother and her long a

    eBook The Falling Woman PDF Ø The Falling Kindle - ¹ pamyatnik.pro falling pdf, woman ebok, The Falling epub, The Falling Woman PDFPerhaps I'm just optimistic but I expected from an award winning book Then again maybe I should have known better; one of the comments on the back of the book was that the writing is generally above average If that's the best thing you can find to put on a book cover watch outI don't have a lot of bad things to say about the book But neither do I have a lot of good things to say about it The characters were strong but I just didn't uite care about them The details of an archaeological dig were interesting but not fully believable or compelling full disclosure; I'm an archaeology junkie who reads archaeology periodicals regularly The main character's psychological issues were well drawn but difficult to believe in or sympathize with The prose includes descriptions of
