Rating 35I was looking for a short audio while waiting on another book I saw this one on Hoopla and knew I had to listen to it I'm a fan of Alice Hoffman and always enjoy getting to another book of hers When I first started it said there are 11 narrators WHAT But there are 11 stories each one narrated by a different person It was done very wellThis is a series of 11 stories that are interlinked in some way Each story is uniue Sometimes a story ends rather uickly and you find out what happens through the next story I know many people of not fans of this type of story but I just love it Some of the stories really stood out such as 'The Conjurers Handbook' about a young man falling in love with a Jewish woman who survived the Holocaust Each story has some common theme a house a blackbird or whitebird the color red love family and This book is uite similar to her book The Red Garden a series of interlinked stories but this one was about a town Side note I did review this one but it's magically disappeared What's up with GR latelyAnyway another fun read from Hoffman and a uick audio that kept me interested in hearing What I love about Hoffman's books is that they are all so different and comforting

I have to be honest I read this book months ago but was unable at the time to find the words to describe this novel I just have to start by saying that it is one of the best novels I have ever read in my life and I clearly read a lot Previous to reading Blackbird House I had never picked up an Alice Hoffman novel I knew that she had written Practical Magic and some other novels in the same vein and I thought that she wouldn't be my kind of author However when I cracked the spine on the Blackbird House I wanted to slap my own wristIt is very difficult to adeuately explain this novel because it is very simple and yet some of the stories are uite complex Basically the novel is made up of short stories those of you out there who don't like short stories don't run away yet about a house on Cape Cod that was built in the 1700s There are twelve stories in the novel and each describes a new generation of the house as it is bought sold and passed down through certain generations The stories follow the characters but only as it relates to the house The true development of the book is that of the house and the times that surround each generation of owners Each owner brings a part of themselves the property which allows the house to grow with its inhabitants There is no climax or enthralling events the true satisfaction comes with the unveiling of each person and the mark they leave on the houseI simply adored this book I thought that it was beautiful in every way The characters were not always likable but they were real which I believe is far important The atmosphere was almost tangible and I felt completely engrossed with each tale There isn't a single story that I could pin point as my favorite because they were all splendidly written This is a book that I will certainly go back to over and over again and urge others to do the samewwwiamliteraryaddictedblogspotcom

I think I've never read anything so completely perfect This book was so multifaceted so enchanting magical binding freeing gut wrenchingI've always meant to read Alice Hoffman I just never go around to it But I did and now I understandYou know your going to read something that's going to change your life when the first sentence leaves you breathless I mean seriously it was perfect the syntax was perfect every sentence that she crafts could stand alone as a poemThis particular book appealed to me because I love magical realism and also because I live in New England and though I live here its elusive in a way so out or reach to me The traditions the history isolate me in the same way that they make me feel part of something And reading this really helped to remind me of why I appreciate this little corner of the worldThis book is told in the span of a hundred years they all involve this house that was built by a fishermen for his wife in the whaling days all of the stories are magical and all feature loveloss and they all conclude in the characters turning point if you will Believe me when I say that it seems as if the characters live on from the twenty something pages each little story is enclosed inI'm not going to say I have a favorite because they were all eually riveting but I will include a uote that stood out than the others for some reason It's from the story Black is the color of my true love's hairI read books as though I was eating apples core and all starved for those pages hungry for every word that told me about things I didn’t yet have but still wanted terribly wanted until it hurtI just finished this book and once I closed the last page I help up the book to my cheek to see if I could feel it pulsing It truly did seem to beat and pulse with sweet pea scented blood
