    Paperbackà The Colour Kindle ç colour ebok, The Colour ePUBHaving finished this book I have decided to rewrite the review Here is what I like about this writer and this novelFirst of all I am impressed with the author's ability to create this story from nothing The story seems so real the people seem real Out of nothing she has created a world that has never existed I usually find non fiction better than fiction Fiction never feels genuine but this novel doesWhat I like most about this book is the way the author has an idea and then says it with a few simple words that feel utterly perfect I fear that if I extract those sentences out of the n

    Paperbackà The Colour Kindle ç colour ebok, The Colour ePUBGold RushRush don't walk or even run to buy this book In this magnificent novel of the New Zealand gold rush of the 1860s epic in scope but intimate in texture Rose Tremain shows a power that her most recent book The Road Home only hints at although her central concern of humanity triumphing through struggle remains the sameThe colour is the miners' term for that gleam of gold that may—or may not—indicate the presence of a seam It is a madness a seduction that seldom brings satisfaction Joseph Blackstone newly arrived from England glimpses the colour by a stream on the hardscrabble property he has bought near Christchurch on the east coast of the South Island It seduces him into scanting on the proper establishment of his farm failing to replace the temporary sod house by a permanent structure fit for

    Paperbackà The Colour Kindle ç colour ebok, The Colour ePUBUgh This was one of those books that had a good beginning about 70 pages or so and then went tremendously downhillThe novel follows a husband and wife who have decided to start anew in New Zealand in the mid nineteenth century only to be thwarted at every turn and estranged Blah blah blahSo if that WAS the story it might have been an ok read The writing was nothing impressive but the initial renderings of the characters was well doneAnd then the author sort of goes beserk She adds a dash of completely ill fitting magical realism in the relationsh

    Paperbackà The Colour Kindle ç colour ebok, The Colour ePUBI chose Rose Tremain's The Colour for the penultimate stop on my Around the World in 80 Books challenge Set in New Zealand The Colour is the first of Tremain's novels which I have read; before this I had only encountered one of her short story collections The Daily Telegraph calls her 'one of the finest writers in English' and this sentiment seems to be echoed by many reviewersThe central characters in The Colour are married couple Joseph and Harriet Blackstone They choose to migrate from Norfolk to New Zealand in 1864 along with Joseph's mother Lilian 'in search of new beginnings and prosperity' Soon after they construct their house Joseph finds small pieces of gold in the local creek and is 'seized by a rapturous obsession with the voluptuous riches awaiting him deep in the earth' He then sets off alone with the destination of New Zealand's Southern Alps on his mind; there are a series of newly discovered goldfields

    Paperbackà The Colour Kindle ç colour ebok, The Colour ePUBI think I'll be happy reading anything Tremain writes This had me in New Zealand in the 1850s and the gold rush Joseph Blackstone has a past which is revealed to us in bits over the course of 300 plus pages Harriet Salt Blackstone has a simple past of having been a governess which she so desperately wanted to put behind her that she willingly entered a loveless marriage Together they have left England behind to farm in the New WorldThere is a good plot here which doesn't get in the way of good characterization of the two main characters The time period is done well enough but as I don'
