The Western Scar: The Theme of the Been-To in West African Fiction dT when faced with the burden of having toon the role "Again Decides That She Must "decides that she must the change that needs to happen in the world Now whether it s for good or bad I can t say because of spoilers but all I will say is that my heart went out to LuBen s journey is also one that is rendered with hardship and the conflict with his father is coming to a head It s from Ben s perspective that I think readers get to see of the internal religious struggle of a young man who s lost his faith but also understands how completely Understanding Shutter Speed dismantling the system could have traumatic conseuences Of all the characters he embodied the most caring spirit in my opinion I also felt like he had the softest of love interestsespite his rough exteriorVex certainly struggled with a lot of things and because I would spoil the story if I talked about it I ll stop here However I will say that I loved how his relationship with Edda and Nayeli was explored in The Mother I Carry: A Memoir of Healing from Emotional Abuse depth Edda s especially felt heartwarming I felt like his crew came off as rough raider s ready to blow everything out of the water in the first book but seeing this new side to them really helped round them out I felt that Nayeli grew the most and her relationship with Cansuefinitely blossomed into a complicated romanceWith all the intense conflicts happening in this story it s hard to imagine the romance being anything else And yet the romances in this story provided this soft respite that I think readers need before they continue on this story of war Each relationship is cultivated on eual terms in my opinion and they help each other grow and understand the world in a new perspective I honestly wish there were some fan art out there because I am all for these relationshipsI perspective I honestly wish there were some fan art out there because I am all for these relationshipsI that the pacing was good although some readers might Anthology of Articles on African Linguistics and Literature disagree with me There s a lot ofensity within the book that needs to be processed and while I m a reader that tends to process the whole of a book once I ve finished it some might need to set the book own to think about what they ve read before they continue on One thing that I Did Have Trouble With And have trouble with and had to go back and read again was the perspective shifting It s not as clear as other books would be with a separate chapter but it s also like this in These Rebel Waves so I wasn t completely taken by surpriseThis book is a 910 for me It s an exceptional story and a great end to this uology I loved the characters and their journeys although they could be a little hard to read at times Like I said if you re easily triggered by torture this might not be the book for you However if this Agricultural Engineering doesn teter you I encourage you to pick up this book It s such a great addition to any shelf and I can t wait for it to come out That ending of the first book fucking Distant Echoes Finding Keys To Life After Abuse destroyed me I NEED ANSWERS OKAY Vexmy boo I ll be patiently waiting for you.
