I started reading this book planning to just read a chapter or two last night and the next thing I know i was a hundred and forty pages into it and it was four in the morning. This book is fast moving and the characters and series' overarcing plot is getting more interesting with every page. This one left me wanting to jump into the next book immediately and to see what happens.
I think I've read this book more than most people. I've read it 4 or 5 times for different classes and written as many papers. What I like about this book, is that through this multiple reading I see how it fits under many different lenses. This gives it a complexity I didn't see when I first read it for English in the 10th grade. List of lenses: 1.)Romantic Movement in Literature (10th grade) 2.) Importance of setting and surrounding (Landscape studies 1st year seminar) 3. Monster as a radicalized colonial subject (History class on British colonies) 4. Feminist work on fear of birth (European woman's history class) 5. Romantic movement again this time with emphasis on industrialization (ENG 201). Smith also has the largest collection of Frankenstein copies. So I've seen a copy of every edition. Makes the tuition bill seem completely justified now, right Mom?
"The Midwife's Apprentice" is set in an English village during the fourteenth century. A homeless orphan named "Brat" is living in a dung heap and becomes an apprentice to a bossy midwife (Jane Sharp), who renames her "Beetle." Beetle is shy, smart and very naive, but learns much from the midwife and grows into a fine young woman. She eventually chooses her own name: Alyce. She leaves for a time, but returns to Jane and embraces her future as a midwife. I really loved this book and was quite taken with the heroine. It is a quick read and I loved seeing the main character's transition from a timid orphan to a strong midwife's apprentice. I would recommend this book to all of my middle grade readers, especially those who love saga di.
A long book but worth the read if you have the time. It tells a lot about family and mental illness. The main character has a twin brother suffering from several mental illnesses and his quest to help him leaves him torn because it begins to consume his life.
A wonderful, although flawed book that is very much worth reading. The plot and prose made me stay up too late reading. Somehow, even though I clearly saw the flaws in the work I didn't care about them; this is a novel that is simultaneously entrancing and imperfect.
A book everyone SHOULD read. Tough in subject matter but necessary.
