Review MacCloud Falls

MacCloud Falls Characters ✓ 2 Robert Alan Jamieson Ä 2 Read & download Download Ó PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ä Robert Alan Jamieson In the summer of 2011 Gilbert Johnson an Edinburgh antiuarian bookseller suffering from cancer who has only ever travelled via books before decides to make one big journey while he is still fit enough – to British Columbia on the trail of an early settl. Unfortunately it took me forever to finish this story of a man afflicted by cancer to discover his roots In his journey from Scotland into British Columbia and parts of Canada he meets a fellow cancer patient and they strike up a bond between fellow sufferers and evolving friendship GIlbert Johnson is in search of his possible grandfather who had run away years before The possible grandfather runs to British Columbia and becomes a person who advocates the indigenous people living there as well as marrying an Indian womanWhile the descriptions of the scenery of the area is flowing and lovely I found it consumed the story The relationships that Gil establishes with the various people he encounters is a secondary part of the story but this novel is definitely scenery drivenFor me it was a chore working myself through the telling of Gil s story There were too many loose ends as Gill and Veronica the woman he meets on the plane journey through the countryside in search of information concerning the grandfather For those readers who enjoy words written that are descriptive and environmentally driven this might be the novel for you For me it was just oftentimes a chore to read chapters that were often over two hours in length So sorry that I didn t enjoy this book

This is a multi layered novel narrated in various ways and with many digressions and overall I found it rather too disjointed to fully engage me The basic storyline is uite straightforward Gilbert Johnson an antiuarian bookseller from Scotland embarks on a journey to British Columbia to trace the steps of his grandfather based on a real life explorer who became involved in the First Nations civil rights movement On his flight over he meets a fellow cancer sufferer and she becomes involved in his uest So we have uite a few strands here First a romance then the uest then the complicated exploration of the history of British Columbia and Canada in general and finally the plight of the First Nations That s a lot to encompass and there are sometimes lengthy interpolations into the narrative to explain the themes and issues including at one point even a timeline So although I enjoyed much of the book and the writing is certainly very accomplished with some evocative descriptions of the landscape these interruptions prevented me from becoming involved in the characters and I found myself skipping chunks The different elements just did not cohere satisfactorily for me
