review Mulheres de Cinza Free read Mulheres de Cinza 100 Read ´ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ Mia Couto Do grande adversário de Portugal restam areias recolhidas em solo portuguêsEsta narrativa é uma recreação ficcional inspirada em factos e personagens reaisServiram de fonte de informação uma extensa documentação produzida em Moçambiue e em Portugal e mais importante ainda diversas entrevistas efectuadas em Maputo e Inhamba. This book is interesting for how it goes back and forth between a Black African teenage girl Imani and a white Portuguese Seargent Germano The two voices were distinct and he definitely did a great job of showing their different worldviews He also picked a setting that is not covered much in my experience Mozambiue at the end of the 1800 s It seems the author did a lot of research to connect the events in the book to historical events I enjoyed the book and its style reminded me of other African authors such as Alan Paton but it ended with such a lack of resolution that I wasn t really sure what the point of the book was Definitely it was about two people who are stuck in the middle and don t feel like they belong in one world or the other but the whole deal with the Seargent s letters being read by someone other than who he meant them to go to and the deception by that other person totally flew over my head The events were a little fuzzy and I didn t understand the characters motives a lot of the time It wasn t a bad book just confusing I liked parts of it a lot but I m not sure I liked it as a whole

Written words are mighty spells capable of potent magicWow I just read my first novel from Mozambiue and the story sucked me in entranced me messed with my head made me uestion what I know about literature hit me over the head with an unexpected finale and spat me out Now I m dizzy and I think I need a witch doctor Until 1975 Mozambiue was a Portuguese colony and this book s author Mia Couto b 1955 is the son of Portuguese settlers When his parents went back to Portugal he and his siblings decided to stay in their native country and Couto is now one of the most important writers in Mozambiue This background info is relevant for the story he is telling in this historical novel In 1894 Portuguese Sergeant Germano de Melo is court martialed after an attempted military revolt and as his punishment is posted to the village of Nkokolani to oversee the Portuguese conuest of territory claimed by Ngungunyane the last of the leaders of the Gaza Empire Gaza 1824 1895 was the second largest empire led by an African the Republican revolt against the Portuguese King also really happenedIn the village he meets 15 year old Imani whom he hires as an interpreter She belongs to a tribe that sided with the Portuguese but her own family is torn between the Crown and the African Emperor Between Germano and Imani a curious dynamic unfolds and by telling the story about the destiny of this contested village and its people Couto meditates on Mozambiue Portugal colonialism racism and literature The story is told in alternating voices by Imani and Germano and draws its poetic strength from this juxtaposition Imani talks about the history customs and beliefs of her people telling many folkloric tales and employing lots of magical realism to bring her very real points across while Germano desperately tries to cling to so called reason and reality until he cannot uphold appearances any The truth his nation defends is no truth at all Germano starts to lose his mind and the Emperor of Gaza is progressingThis book is full of piercing metaphors and moving images and I especially liked the role that words language and literature itself play in the book Eg while Germano admires Imani s beautiful spoken Portuguese he can hardly tolerate to watch her write because of the power she acuires by doing this Imani knows about that power and she uses it by writing her story This is the story of the rivers The greedy may steal their water until they run dry But they won t steal their history In the dust and ashes I write the names of the dead So that they may be born again from the footprints we leave If you like me think that this is some powerful writing read that book it is full of passages like this one I can t help myself I have to add in one uote My father was a tuner of the infinite marimba that is the world wow Couto just wow Highly recommended

    E–pub/E–book (Mulheres de Cinza) This is a different kind of story a narrative that purposefully euivocates between mysticism and objectivity A character out of his element trying to bridge the chasm that separates him from the world in which he is placed while simultaneously clinging to his own culture Although written in 2015 the events take place at the end of the nineteenth century in colonial Africa Portuguese Mozambiue In this respect it shares a certain fe
