REVIEW æ White Elephant Julie Langsdorf â 9 REVIEW READ White Elephant Not so harmless prank Newcomers and longtime residents alike clash in conflicting pursuits of the American Dream with trees mysteriously uprooted fingers pointed and lines drawnWhite Elephant is a tangled web tale of a community on the verge and its all too human inhabitants who long to connect but can’t seem to find the words It's a story about opposing sides struggling to find a middle ground a parable for our tim. Oh what to say about white elephant It was a pretty ok book I didn t hate it but I also didn t love it It felt like someone took a typical contemporary formula filled in all of the reuired areas and put it together So in that respect it works From the beginning there seem to be too many characters jumping around in the narration This does eventually work itself out but I wasn t even sure that some of the characters were the children until later into the story so that could have been better explained in the beginning The story line is an obsession with first world problems and a weird obsession with trees and the hatred of a large eye sore of a house In and of itself it s not a horrible premise but the emotion was lackluster at best The only real emotion I felt was angry at the horrible teenager towards the end of the book Otherwise there wasn t a lot to make this book stand out other than a bit of an exploration into the male characters when a lot of books of this type place almost all emphasis on the female characters This was a fine book nothing glaring was wrong with it but there just wasn t any wow factor for me Solid at 3 stars The Fire Starters prank Newcomers and longtime residents alike clash in conflicting Millennial Teacher Identity Discourses pursuits of the American Dream with trees mysteriously uprooted fingers Single Session Therapy pointed and lines drawnWhite Elephant is a tangled web tale of a community on the verge and its all too human inhabitants who long to connect but can’t seem to find the words It's a story about opposing sides struggling to find a middle ground a Heart And Soul Like Constructs Across Languages Cultures and Epochs parable for our tim.
