    PDF/EPUB Illumination Night Kindle Ã × tripzmode.co illumination book, night mobile, Illumination Night PDFEPUBFor a book called Illumination Night there sure is a shadow over this story The majority of the time the characters are all in significant inner turmoil They have their brief glimpses of joy but then the perspective shifts back to another character in angst I also find the dolefulness of the characters overly contrived for the sake of soap opera esue melodrama It evoked for me the mental eye rolling previously reserved for the Twilight series The book plays out somewhat like a fairytale for adults in its telling though without the magic Also it doesn't seem like a cohesive story so much as a snapshot of a year or so of the characters' lives and personalities The majority of my time spent listening to audio books is while I'm exercising During this one I found myself checking how much time I had left in the workouts much freuently than usual and counting down the tracks until t

    PDF/EPUB Illumination Night Kindle Ã × tripzmode.co illumination book, night mobile, Illumination Night PDFEPUBone of my favorite alice hoffman books aside from the river king her old stuff is soooooooo much better than the newso much betteranyhow it takes place on the vineyard which was excellent becuase i could picture everything in my brain also her imagery and prose is aMAZing; it's like one really long poem rahter than a novel the characers are facinating too they are flawed but you love them and you hurt for them and you wish they were actual people that lived next door and then you cry when everyone is redeemed but not in a suishy free love sort of way in a real way ps sometimes i get way too into books anyhow it has hoffman's signature mystical aura but unlike her later works it kind of takes a back seat to the character development i loved it and will read it againfin

    PDF/EPUB Illumination Night Kindle Ã × tripzmode.co illumination book, night mobile, Illumination Night PDFEPUBNothing magical in this book by magical realism author Alice Hoffman Basically a two year chronicle of people living on Martha's Vineyard Illumination Nights is a lesson in tediumFirst we have Vonny who is treated horribly by her father a stereotypical New York millionaire but never deals or reacts to it except to develop a crushing case of agarophobia Vonny is married to Andre a man who doesn't communicate They have a son Simon who goes from 4 6 with all of the baggage of a toddler and little of the charmThe next door neighbor is sinking into blindness and dementia Her grandaughter a 16 year old tramp moves in with her and does little besid
