Tu AUTHOR Patricia Grace Read õ 104 Download Ò PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook  Patricia Grace review Tu AUTHOR Patricia Grace و ترك ابوها مفكرة صغيرة و بعض الصور اعتمدت عليها فى روايتها كما رجعت للارشيفات و المتاحف و مكتبات الموسيقى و الاغانى الشعبية لتصوغ لنا رواية نابضة بالمشاعر الإنسانية تتناول الكاتبة الحرب فى هزائمها و انتصاراتها م. Te Hokowhitu a Tu is named after the Maori god of war and thus it makes sense that he follows his brothers Pita and Rangi into the midst of WWII and joins the Maori Battalion His story begins with a letter and with enclosed journal entries from overseas and there are details in them that none of us ever speak about 12 In many senses this story could belong to any solider of WWII Yet this story is uniuely different as it follows three brothers and uncovers deeper secrets than those harbored in the war When Tu s family relocates to Wellington they plan that Tu will be the brother that goes off to school and takes on the task of being a lawyer they ve put their hopes in him It is already clear that Pita and Rangi are going to join the war efforts and thus is becomes even significant for Tu to remain at home with his mother and sisters Yet Tu wrote that At seventeen I just didn t want to be a boy any longer and felt a need to break out of the family protection that has always coated me 25 There are many Maori men and youths that joined in the war effort and because casualties have been extremely high and replacements are needed recruiters were signing the Maori up at high numbers even without proof of age 33 Even though there were cases where younger brothers could be sent home in cases where they are than two from the same family Tu himself talks about knowing of where there were five but three have died already 35 Undoubtedly the conditions of WWII were awful but the one thing the brothers have going for them is that they all found each other at one point in the same company They also meet up with several cousins and other important Maori chiefs There are many culturally specific moments in the text including the art of the taiaha that are discussed and add uniue dimensions to the story The authenticity is something Patricia Grace should be praised for and in a bleak novel about war it is good to see some of the positive attributes of Maori culture shining through The chiefs Hemi and Gary are seen carving into their rifles as well as painting their faces with ornate Maori art They are also seen showing traditional warriorhood We heard him shout telling us to charge saw the arms splayed the dropped tongue the whites of eyes as we burst out from the room at a crouching run firing our guns and making as much noise as we could 193 Hoki atu ra is also talked about in terms of giving you leave so you can march out and go off to join the ancestors in that other dimension 203 Yet be warned that like most novels about war there will be many characters that you connect with on various levels that are killed Three notable deaths are view spoilerone of the chiefs Pita and Rangi hide spoiler

Tu AUTHOR Patricia Grace Read õ 104 Download Ò PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook  Patricia Grace review Tu AUTHOR Patricia Grace ؤكدة فى كل سطورها أن الحرب شرخ فى الحياة الطبيعية ، فلا شئ يعود مطلقا كما كان قبل الحربكرمت باتريشيا كأيقونة حية للفن النيوزيلندى و حصلت روايتها تيو على ميدالية ديوتيز للرواية عام 2004 ، و جائزة مونتانا للرواية عام 200. Honestly I don t have a lot to say about this book I didn t love it I didn t hate it It was just okay Up until about 60% of the way through it held very little interest for me Even though half of it was written in diary form I still felt as though I barely knew any of the characters As for the plot I ve never read a war novel but I certainly expected it to be a bit gripping Tu the author of the diary says at the end that he mostly wrote while he was waiting or resting basically just sitting around and really that s sometimes all I felt like I was reading about I don t think Patricia Grace conveyed the action or horror of war in a compelling way at all unfortunately Her writing was better suited to the chapters describing life before the war although even then I think writing about a character who seems to have little understanding of his own emotions or how to convey them Pita is setting yourself up for a challengeI guess maybe I just didn t uite get it I saw the twists if that s what they were supposed to be coming a mile off and even if I hadn t the lack of emotion I felt for any of the characters meant such revelations had little impact It was an interesting look into the effect of two world wars across the generations of a family but fell a bit flat
