Little Fires Everywhere review ¶ 103 É Στο Σέικερ Χάιτς ένα ήρεμο προοδευτικό προάστιο του Κλίβελαντ όλα είναι σχεδιασμένα ως την τελευταία λεπτομέρεια – από τη χάραξη των στριφογυριστών δρόμων ως το χρώμΣτο Σέικερ Χάιτς ένα ήρεμο προοδευτικό προάστιο του Κλίβελαντ όλα είναι σχεδιασμένα ως την τελευταία λεπτομέρεια – από τη χάραξη των στριφογυριστών δρόμων ως το χρώμα των σπιτιών ως τις επιτυχημένες ζωές που πρόκειται να ζήσουν οι κάτοικοί του Και κανείς δεν ενσαρκώνει αυτό το πνεύμα καλύτερα απ’ ότι η Έλενα Ρίτσαρντσον της οποίας η βασική αρχή είναι να σέβεται πάντα. All her life she had learned that passion like fire was a dangerous thing It so easily went out of control 4 12 stars You should go into this book expecting what it is a slow moving character portrait filled with complex family dynamics and small town politics If you know what this is like with Ng's Everything I Never Told You and don't go into it expecting fast pacing and high octane drama you will probably find this uiet read to be extremely engrossing and emotionalI have to be in the mood for this kind of read but when I am it packs a powerful punch These characters are so vivid so real so caught up in the little fires of everyday life in Shaker Heights There's several stories going on in here but the book begins with literal fires lighting up the Richardson household and the knowledge that the youngest daughter Izzy the wild card has disappeared Presumably because she is guilty of the arsonThen we move back from there We start to get a portrait of the events leading up to this dramatic fire We see the poor artist Mia and her daughter Pearl move into town and the effect they have on all members of the Richardson family Further back we get the past stories of almost every character who comes into this book It is such a rich work in which the personal stories and experiences of secondary characters play a huge part in influencing how events unfoldAnd behind it all is a court case that will affect all the characters lives A custody battle over a Chinese baby who could be given every toy every desire every opportunity by her rich and white adoptive parents but is that all Is that enough when her poor birth mother is ready and willing to care for her Things become very tense The town becomes divided And I felt an emotional wreck by the end of it too Mrs Richardson however could not let Izzy be and the feeling coalesced in all of them Izzy pushing her mother restraining and after a time no one could remember how the dynamic had started only that it had existed always The Richardson family along with Mia and Pearl Bebe and the McCulloughs all pulled me into their lives I despised a character at one point only to find pity for them a couple of chapters later The relationship between Izzy and her mother was a real point of interest for me How Mrs Richardson's fears about Izzy affected her behaviour toward her which in turn affected how Izzy behaved All leading to the ultimate uestion was Izzy always what Mrs Richardson feared she was Or did Mrs Richardson create what she most feared through her treatment of IzzyLittle Fires Everywhere is a great example of how small character dynamics can create a powerful and fascinating story I love the empathy the author shows for all the people in this book even the manipulative morally corrupt and undeserving No one is merely good or bad And that is what makes the book so effective Whose side am I on I'll let you know if I ever figure it outBlog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Youtube

μητέρα και την κόρη Η Μία όμως κουβαλά ένα μυστηριώδες παρελθόν και μια αψηφισιά για το κατεστημένο που απειλεί να ανατρέψει την τόσο τέλεια οργανωμένη κοινότητά τους Το Μικρές φωτιές παντού διερευνά το βάρος των μυστικών την τρομερή δύναμη της μητρότητας καθώς και τον κίνδυνο που ελλοχεύει στην πεποίθηση πως ακολουθώντας τους κανόνες μπορείς να αποτρέψεις μια συμφορ. DangIf this book does not get your brain churning well then you did not read the same book I just didThis book is filled with so many scenarios with so many uestions and no perfect answers Every situation is a little pile of kindling and any of the uestionable solutions will only ignite the fire soon you have a bunch of fires ready to burn everything to the ground Man that would be a great title for this book Oh wait It has been a long time since I remember reading a book where my mind and problem solving skills have been this challenged Usually when you are reading you think well the best route for them to follow is this or Geez it's obvious that they should never have done that In this book I just kept thinking I am glad I am not the one who has to make any of these decisionsAlso this book is full of so many misunderstandings I get frustrated when someone is falsely accused or the wrong conclusion is assumed Every 15 minutes I found myself yelling at this book IT WASN'T HER NO THAT'S NOT WHAT HAPPENED SOMEONE SPEAK UPOH THIS ISN'T GOING TO END WELLI believe I have said it before but any time a book has you engaged so much you yell at it want to pull the characters out of the pages and shake them andor need a stiff drink to calm your nerves at the end of each chapter you are reading a pretty darn good bookGive your analytical side a gift and read this book it would be a great one for a book club I imagine it would certainly lead to some lively discussion

Little Fires Everywhereτους κανόνες Τότε στην ειδυλλιακή φούσκα που συνιστά τη ζωή της οικογένειάς της μπαίνει η Μία Γουόρεν μια αινιγματική καλλιτέχνιδα που νοικιάζει μαζί με την έφηβη κόρη της την Περλ ένα σπίτι των Ρίτσαρντσον Σύντομα η Μία και η Περλ αποκτούν πολύ σημαντικότερο ρόλο στη ζωή τους από αυτόν των απλών ενοικιαστριών – και τα τέσσερα παιδιά των Ρίτσαρντσον γοητεύονται από τη. 45 stars I was hooked while listening to the audiobook and finished it in 2 days The family dynamics tension and nuance is well done The themes about parenting and motherhood what is considered good parenting and who is a good mother was such an interesting exploration along with how white suburbia can be suffocating and push for conformity But most of all I loved the portrayal of well intentioned yet ignorant white and upperclass people and the gap between a privileged and white POV versus an immigrant in poverty It’s done in such a subtle way that’s not in your face and gives readers enough room to explore and think through these issues for ourselves The only reason why I hesitate to give this 5 stars is I don’t think much was done with Mrs Richardson’s kids for readers to care about I think the ending would have been impactful if the kids had been better developed and thus have a well rounded cast of characters
