Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet Free download ¾ 2 Seattle Nella cantina dell’hotel Panama il tempo pare essersi fermato sono passati uarant’anni ma tutto è rimasto come allora Nonostante sia coperto di polvere l’ombrellino di bambù brilla ancora rosso e bianco con il disegno di un pesce arancione A Henry Lee basta vederlo aperto per ritrovarsi di nuovo nei primi anni uaranta L’America è in guerra ed è attraversata da un razzismo strisciante Henry giovane cinese è solo un ragazzino ma conosce già da tempo l’odio e la violenza Essere picchiato e insultato a scuola è la regola ormai a parte uei pochi momenti fortunati in cui semplicemente viene ignorato Ma un giorno Henry incontra due occhi simili ai suoi lei è Keiko capelli ne. Original review posted Mar 19 09I have to admit that I did not like this book Mr Ford is a decent writer and while he did research 1942 fairly extensively he did a crappy job portraying 1986 I was alive in 86 I was ten in fact While my memory of the time is going to be different than that of a 50 year old character I wound up being very tired of the repeated anachronisms In one paragraph on page four of the book I believe the narrator tells the readers that the main character s son is seeing a grief counselor and participating in an Internet support group In 1986 that sort of thing would have been highly unlikely Further in that same paragraph he tells us the main character s deceased wife is buried in the same cemetary with Bruce and Brandon Lee and this is seven years before Brandon s deathI m not the kind of reader that gets easily annoyed by poor detail editing but I am annoyed when sloppy research or a failure to do any sort of research leads to misrepresentations of the setting I found this book to be very sloppy indeedEdit posted April 21 2013After years of getting comments and feedback on this review I will take the time to edit it for two important details 1 Many of the errors that I found irritating were fixed in the paperback edition of the book I would argue that this means that others also found the errors irritating that they were indeed errors2 Ford replies to the internet issue as one of his FA replies on his website He states I m afraid I have to reveal just how geeky I truly am I was on Compuserve in 1984 with an old coupler modem like you saw in the movie Wargames Back when you had to pay 100 to sign up and were charged by the hour Just because most people weren t online then doesn t mean no one was Just the few the proud the computer geeks You can see the comment here

Review Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet Free download ¾ 2 Ri e frangetta sbarazzina l’aria timida e smarrita È giapponese e come lui ha conosciuto il peso di avere una pelle diversa All’inizio la loro è una tenera amicizia fatta di passeggiate nel parco fughe da scuola serate ad ascoltare jazz nei locali dove di nascosto si beve lo zenzero giamaicano Ma giorno dopo giorno si trasforma in ualcosa di molto più profondo Un a innocente e spensierato Un a impossibile Perché l’ordine del governo è chiaro tutti i giapponesi dovranno essere internati e a Henry come alle comunità cinesi e del resto a tutti gli americani è assolutamente vietato avere rapporti con loro Eppure i due ragazzini sono disposti a tutto anche a sfidare i pregiudizi e le d. For me Jamie Ford s heralded multiple award winning Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was an entirely luke warm reading experience from start to finish The emotional heat that should have brewed within a story of this nature considering the volatile subject matter failed to materialize I never tasted the venom of injustice as I should have The details of Japanese internment in America during WWII was certainly interesting to read about especially since I know so little about it Seeing our country a country founded on freedom take it away from its own citizens is chilling I just didn t feel the chill in Ford s words as much as I could and should haveOtherwise it was a lovely story A uaint and well written love story indeed I did have a hard time rooting for the romantic connection between these two children They were just too young for me to think in those terms and maybe it wasn t intended to be so intimate Certainly their relationship is sweet and I felt myself pulling for them but I was pulling with all the strength and enthusiasm I would if I were pitted in a game of tug o war against a two year oldRegardless of my less than perfect reading experience I think this would be a great book for someone looking for a 20th century historical romance Perhaps someone who likes YA romance and who doesn t mind it being set against a background of truth and terror for Japanese Americans during World War II
