Encounters Free download ¸ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Jason Wallace í 5 characters Free read Í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free í Jason Wallace Zimbabwe 1994 A group of children spot peculiar lights in the sky over the grounds of their school From this moment on six young people's lives are changed forever Gary hides the anguish he feels now his mum's left acting out in fury and hatred Chloe has no words for the thing she fears most ever. 2018 CARNEGIE LONGLIST BOOK 1620 This is my winner Or so far anyway No doubt about it this by far the best book that I have read on this longlist apart from maybe Release by Patrick Ness But I loved this a lot It was creepy and unusual and altogether a perfect blend of greatness And that cover I am obsessed and I m not sure why And it is based on true events Which I think was handled really well I ll go into that in a minute The book has six parts plus a really short bit at the end which are each narrated by a different character I personally really liked this it made the book a slow unravelling small things were picked up with every new part and you learn all different sides of each character both from their own POV and other s I will admit it did have a few problems each part overlapped and then carried on the story a little further and in places conversations were repeated without giving much insight but I didn t really mind this very much I think my favourite part was Chloe s This was the darkest and creepiest part of the book and it really does leave you uite scared when you finish it Chloe was also my favourite character I didn t like Gary though I do think that his part was important to be in there and another thing that ruined him for me was that I swear instead of the word said EVERY SINGLE TIME the author used tuned I don t know why it was only in Gary s part But then I have visions of people just singing conversations and I don t know I don t really mind as this was only in the first part of the book What I also love is the way the author handled the fact that this is based on true events I don t think anyone really knows what the children saw that day and I like how Jason Wallace neither confirms nor denies anything There are also some super awesome talks about the universe and all these big uestions we ask ourselves and it was just really interesting to read about The whole concept of this book is interesting and even though it is based on true events it feels original This book gave me shivers and I left it feeling distinctly creeped out But at the same time I think the story was really clever and I definitely think that this one should have made the shortlist It is the best one of the lot that I have read so far and I think it is uniue and clever and thoughtful and in places shocking Definitely something that I would recommend Conversations With James Baldwin Literary Conversations Series young people's lives are changed forever Gary hides the anguish he feels now his mum's left acting out in fury and hatred Chloe has no words for the thing she fears most ever. 2018 CARNEGIE LONGLIST BOOK 1620 This is my winner Or so far anyway No doubt about it this by far the best book that

Encounters by Jason Wallace Andersen is a story of layers and discovery Each chapter covers the same time period told from the point of view of different characters Their stories overlap and as a reader you learn details as you see events from different perspectives It raises the uestion of reliable witnesses and trustworthy storytellers and reminds you that each character is telling their story from their own ideological viewpoint It s an interesting techniue that I found challenging as a reader the first character was particularly unlikeable and hard to read and there were other characters I didn t want to leave behind but it was ultimately rewarding as all the viewpoints built and layered drawing you further into the story Zimbabwe 1994 A group of children spot peculiar lights in the sky over the grounds of their school From this moment on six young people s lives are changed forever Gary hides the anguish he feels now his mum s left acting out in fury and hatred Chloe has no words for the thing she fears most every day Karl is the headmaster s son now fallen from grace Tendai knows he can never live up to his grieving father s ideals And Sixpence watches all knowing he ll never be like these other children All of them have seen something they can t explain In amongst these tangled tortured lives comes a group of psychologists to verify the spookily similar claims of every witness Their daughter Holly can tell there s to it than aliens or mass hysteria can she reveal the dark truths that haunt them Inspired by true accounts this is the long awaited new novel from Costa award winner Jason Wallace Encounters is full of ideas of abuse and trauma and ineuality It doesn t provide answers rather it shows how people s lives are affected It lays the foundations and lets the reader find their own position This is by no means an easy book to read At times it is almost Brechtian in it s difficulties But it has a lot to say and it has left me thoughtful and wiser and glad that I gave it the time it deserved Source review e copy kindly sent by Penguin Random House
