I remember reading this book about five or six years ago as it was on a recommended books list and loving it and thinking it was the best book ever written and voting for it as the best book on the listI also remember immediately forgetting what it was about except that it was narrated by a young girl who painted umbrellas silk ones too And I remember remembering it about twice a year since I created my Goodreads account two years ago this month and a few times before that But then I'd just look at it and go Oh right that book What was it about again Well I guess it doesn't matter anywayWell I guess it does matter if I'm changing my rating policy so that next to nothing is rated five starsThus I checked the book out of the library and re read it It's a uick read which I uickly remembered especially since I'd already read the slim novel 131 pages by my copy and with very large print and margins True to my memory it is indeed a good book simply written with beautiful metaphors woven inThe thing is I don't think I understood most of the deeply thought out metaphors I don't remember the book being brilliant I remember it being merely beautiful The problem is it's a simple book simply written as if aimed at second graders The plot is slightly engaging also simple as it is told by an eleven year old who is moderately protected by her family and never really thinks for pages and pages or ages and ages but older than the writing itself There are money troubles and the narrator's sister is sent to work at a factory Noi the narrator herself worries that she too will be sent to the factory and won't be able to paint umbrellas like she's always wanted to The grandmother gets sick There are even a few mild arguments between relativesBut there's nothing all that intense Nothing supremely gripping It is a children's book though I can't honestly expect it to still hold the same kind of magic it did when I was its intended audience when the next book I finished was The Perks Of Being A Wallflower I still felt the urge to dock a star though because while the book feels like it's written for a seven year old it isn't really A seven year old can like it but they would most likely react the way I did I love this book because it's pretty What next And then forget about it A seven year old wouldn't understand the metaphors the way someone older would Of course any child about the age of five or so could read it just to enjoy it or for school as I did or even for a way to gently introduce a book where not everyone is happy with everythingIn conclusionBeautifully written but similar to a shallow pool in that it's very pretty and nice to cool off in but don't try diving in or you'll end up whacking your head on the bottom
