characters That Deadman Dance free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB í Kim Scott Kim Scott í 3 read Of his country That Deadman Dance is inevitably tragic as most stories of European and native contact are But through Bobby's life Kim Scott exuberantly explores a moment in time when things could have been different when black and white lived together in amazement rather than fear of the other and when the world seemed suddenly twice as large and twice as promising At once celebratory and heartbreaking this novel is a uniue and important contribution to the literature of native experience. The Deadman s dance is not a terrible book However it also wasn t a very interesting book at least to me It probably mainly has to do with my lack of interest in Australian history but even a fictional retelling of the first settlement didn t keep my interest Sadly neither did the characters They were so unbelievable that it was hard to believe they were actually people They didn t have much depth or personality They seemed like situations rather than actual peopleThere is however one good thing about the book and that is the writing Scott has a gift for writing His prose is almost perfect and the way he creates scenery imagery feeling and settings is ridiculously amazing Though the prose was flowery there was never a moment when the writing made me roll my eyes unlike with other books that tend to use flowery prose

characters That Deadman Dance free read ✓ eBook or Kindle ePUB í Kim Scott Kim Scott í 3 read Set in Western Australia in the first decades of the nineteenth century That Deadman Dance is a vast gorgeous novel about the first contact between the Aboriginal Noongar people and the new European settlersBobby Wabalanginy is a young Noongar man smart resourceful and eager to please He befriends the European arrivals joining them as they hunt whales till the land and establish their new colony He is welcomed into a prosperous white family and eventually finds himself falling in love with. I don t need to say much about the book itself because there are already than enough good reviews both here and on other forums Put simply it is the story of what might have been the story of a clash of cultures and the story of dispossession When I first finished the book I felt it was one that every Australian should read But I am saddened by some of the Goodreads reviews sure not everyone has to like a book and I agree that this one meandered through time and stories but it is essential to stand back and look at a book like this objectively to see it in the context of our history to try to understand what it is telling us By our history I don t just mean Australian history but the history of humanity How many times have we heard this story A group of people arrive in a new place and without trying to understand it tell the locals how they should live in it Oh by the way the locals no longer have any access to traditional resources This is the story of Australian white settlement and the story of European settlement all over the Americas the story of the Roman Empire at least under some of its rulers the story of Tibet It s the story of so many dispossessed peoples It s a story that is currently being acted out yet again in places like Burma Bangladesh and Syria Don t we ever learn No not while people see history as irrelevant That brings me back to some of the reviews here and elsewhere that say things like I m not really interested in history or this is about another culture so it s not relevant to me George Santayana said Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it Sadly Kim Scott shows us one terrible example of people ignoring the past

    EBOOK DOWNLOAD That Deadman Dance This is not an easy book to read the prose jumps around jarringly, requiring patience and not always in a pleasurable way.
