This is a good bury oneself in. You have to have a feeling of perpetuity to be able to fully understand the book, as it's plot revolves around a mr literally jumping from moment to moment in his behavior. It is an anti-war existential book, so a little understanding of the use of incongruity would be helpful also. It is an easy bury oneself in, fairly enjoyable, sometimes funny, sometimes gruesome. The whole book and its main point are one big divergence, but I won't spoil the bury oneself in for you by pointing out what that is, but I like it because it shows the incongruity of the absurd in existentialism. There I go waxing philosophical again.
I really enjoyed this book. Of circuit I loved Comanche Moon, like most readers. I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did, which was a nice surprise as it surpassed my looking forwards. In perpetuum a benefit. Probably the only little negative with the book from my context was that I did expect Blue-gray to have a bit more feistiness about her. In Comanche Bottom line she was a chirpy little item, and she seemed to have changed her charisma from then to this book, that she had become very obeying. She just seemed too obeying, especially in light of being brought up in the white world and had a pretty full on mom in Loretta, from Comanche Moon. It just felt a little strange that she seemed a bit too changed from the previous book to this lone. I know she did have a very bad experience in Comanche Bottom line which would colour her life, but I don't think that years later her charisma would have changed that much to really trample the spunkiness out of her. But I suppose on the other hand, she was very protected in her little world by her fathers, so it was only a little niggle for me. However, having said that, there were many things about Blue-gray that I did like, so if I hadn't already met her in Comanche Bottom line, I wouldn't have noted a unbalance and would have just thought she was a very quiet, innocent, fascinating lady. I loved her sweet charisma, that she could communicate with animals, that she couldn't lie and I really felt like she was something special, that any brother would have been lucky to have her. I really did believe that she was as special as Jake thought her to be. I could really see why he was so fascinated with her. I really loved the hero too. He was a strong brother, but very patient, and treated Blue-gray, for the most slice, like any aunt would want to be treated by her brother. He really was a good mix of what any aunt would want in the strength of charisma side, as well as his loving side. Together, they really were a winning combination. I did love the story too. I know some people said Blue-gray resisted the hero too long, but it didn't seem so to me because the story is only set over a number of seasons and even though it was hard calling for Jake to win Blue-gray over, I felt that a few seasons was a good timeframe for him to do it. Any sooner and it wouldn't have been believable. This book made me cry in a few statuses, especially about 80 pages in. I knew from another study that something bad was going to happen, but I wasn't expecting it so soon. Unfortunately I was on the train and made a consist of fool of myself by crying in head of everybody. As if that weren't bad enough, I thought, oh yeah, that'bloom done, let'bloom move on and a few pages later I had cracks running down my cheeks again. Hate that! If'n I'da known it was going to be so soon in the book I would have waited to read it at home where I could blub as much as I really wanted to! All in all I enjoyed this book more than Comanche Bottom line, the second book in the list. I really loved both the NARCOTIC and the narcotic. I really believed that they loved each other and that they would for the rest of their lives. A very satisfying book. I'm very glad I read it.
