    Hardcover✓ Caribou Island Epub ç caribou download, island epub, Caribou Island PDFEPUB Caribou Island is a masterpiece Set in the remote bleakness of water soaked small town Alaska this is a tale of desperation failure of man versus nature but also of man so arrogant and self involved so removed from reality that he does not bother to properly prepare for the battle Some hope is gleaned some battles are won but the war seen here is a dark suffocating presence Alaska felt like the end of the world a place of exile Those who couldn’t fit anywhere else came here and if they couldn't cling to anything here they just fell off the edge These tiny towns in a great expanse enclaves of despair Whereas most fiction floats atop a watery base of prose Vann’s characters and story sit amidst a thick stew of imagery His writing has the density the economy of a short story No event occurs that does not contribute to the underlying momentum or to enhancing our

    Hardcover✓ Caribou Island Epub ç caribou download, island epub, Caribou Island PDFEPUBDark ity dark dark dark The beautiful Alaskan wilderness was as much a part of this story as its characters a couple in their mid 50s setting about building and arguing over a tiny cabin and about their adult children These people were drawn with outstanding depth and tone and that is true for even sideline characters the four friends and lovers who meander in and out of the tale Aside from Rhoda the gentle hearted daughter and a sweet side character named Carl we see shards of the rotten and the kind in practically every person detailed here This makes the dark story extremely believable and engages the reader tightly The black moods that percolate through from time to time are relieved by the 20 something goofiness of the adult son Mark and his entourage I've read three of Vann's novels so far and this one is by far the most realistic and with characters that were easy to relate to Auarium featur

    Hardcover✓ Caribou Island Epub ç caribou download, island epub, Caribou Island PDFEPUBNot long ago I was mesmerized by David Vann’s exceptional and perceptive collection Legend of a Suicide – a mythology of his father’s death I wondered whether his first full length novel would capture the magic and raw energy of that astonishing bookThe answer I’m pleased to say is yesBeware Caribou Island is NOT for readers who are looking for “likeable characters” and Hollywood type endings It ventures into dark emotional territory that’s not always comfortable to reside in – the same type of territory that’s inhabited by say Martha and George in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolff In other words it packs a wallopGary and Irene are a couple who have lived for years in Alaska “an open space an opportunity to forget about something as small as heartache” There’s a juxtaposition of Alaska as a grand and v
