    (The Lucky Ones) [PDF KINDLE] õ Julianne Pachico Nobody seems particularly lucky in The Lucky Ones – not the teenager who declines a country house party invitation and finds herself alone with a menacing man right outside the door not her former eight grade teacher who is held prisoner and pontificates on Hamlet to the sticks and leaves not Mariela cruelly

Free read The Lucky Ones Download à The Lucky Ones ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Free download ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB æ Julianne Pachico Lusive and people you love can disappear without a trace A prismatic tale of a group of characters who emerge and recede throughout the novel and touch one another’s lives in ways even they cannot comprehend The Lucky Ones captures the intensity of life in Colombia as paramilitaries guerillas and drug traffickers tear the country apart Combining vivid details of life under siege with a hallucinatory feel that befits its violent world The Lucky Ones introduces a truly original and exciting new voice in fiction. I was lucky to get a proof copy of this book at a book festival event and raced through it in less than a day such was the compelling writing and desire to see the various threads fit together The book is somewhere between a novel and short stories what you read are non chronological episodes in a set of characters lives as the focus changes and other characters fall into the background Set mainly in Colombia the book mainly follows children and teachers in youth and grownup the long and violent political upheaval making its presence felt despite their privileged backgrounds If I hadn t been given a proof copy this subject matter would have drawn me to it and set it apart from the potential readsI found it almost as compelling as Pond by Claire Louise Bennett set to be my favourite read on 2016 whilst the themes are very different the framework of a set of closely linked short stories is one which seems to have plenty of as yet untapped riches It looks like Faber have stuck the word novel on the cover which will make it eligible for next year s Booker Prize I certainly feel the book deserves both critical acclaim and a wide readership and wish it and its author well when it is published early next year

Free read The Lucky Ones Download à The Lucky Ones ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Free download ò PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB æ Julianne Pachico Set during the peak of Colombia’s drug fueled conflict and in New York City this captivating kaleidoscopic debut novel centers on a group of high school girls and the people whose lives touch theirs including their parents teachers housekeepers and the warlords and guerrilla fighters who surround them While her parents are away for a holiday weekend in the mountains around Cali a teenager finds herself home alone for the first time with the household help mysteriously gone no phone connection and news of an i. This isn t an easy book to read It s like a collection of intertwining short stories than a comprehensive story Each chapter captures a different character and a different time All deal with the time of the Columbian drug wars taking place either in that country or NYC They are inter connected the man in the second chapter is the English teacher of the girl in the first another girl is the daughter of friends of the first girl s parents the childhood friend of this girl grows up to be the leader of the guerillas On and on each character portraying a different segment of the society The connections are mostly done as remembrances of each other Although I can t begin to explain how the rabbits addicted to cocoa leaves fit in I struggled with the title The Lucky Ones Really The characters seem anything but In one chapter a lucky one is defined as one left alive despite being cut open And while the writing was decent the story or should I say stories just didn t draw me in Typically a book like this would interest me because it s about a part of history I don t know a lot about But there wasn t even enough concrete history to make it interesting The book felt disjointed and only half baked like a dream with gossamer bits of a story Others have raved over this so bear in mind my opinion is in the minority I don t do well with anything surreal and this is definitely surreal Bottom line if you re the type of reader who is content with characters that show up and inhabit 20 or so pages and then disappear never to return you ll probably like this book That s not me I want characters I can invest time and feeling in And I want to know what becomes of them My Thanks to netgalley and Spiegel Grau for an advance copy of this book

Sunday Times Young Writer of the Year Award shortlist review 3I am on the official shadow panel of book bloggers45 Marketed as a novel in America but as a short story collection in the UK The Lucky Ones is really somewhere in between it s a linked story collection in which the 11 chapters could stand alone but are so much richer together Each generally adds a layer of meaning to the others by filling in the background or following a certain character a decade or into the future The book keeps creeping backward and leaping forward to show how terror endured in one s past never really goes awayThe title certainly seems ironic as many of the schoolmates teachers and hangers on who people these Colombia set stories face imprisonment torture or disappearance The story titles too seem innocuous even sweet But the first story Lucky sets the precedent for things turning very dark very fast Stephanie Lansky s family leaves for a weekend party at the Montoyas country house but teenage Stephanie stays home planning to smoke in secret and meet up with a friend at the mall Scary snatches of radio dialogue about Communist rebels and bombs contrast with her escapist re reading of Arthurian romances but the threat becomes real when a man comes to the door to get her With the maid missing and her parents not answering their phones she s effectively a hostage in her own home The open ended conclusion is masterly its could be maybe and It s still possible phrases leave the reader to wonder whether Stephanie will be one of the lucky ones or notThe stories range from 1993 to 2013 and over those two decades we zoom in and out to visit some of Stephanie s classmates and teachers For instance in Lemon Pie my favorite individual story her teacher Mr B is now a prisoner in a jungle camp and nourishes what little sanity he has left by teaching his old Hamlet lesson plans to groups of leaves and sticks In the next story M M we meet another of Mr B s pupils a scholarship student who fell out spectacularly with a friend over their differing class status Ten years later he s a guerrilla commander so harsh that he orders deserters executed by their friendsSeven of the stories are in the third person but others add in some interesting variety in Siberian Tiger Park the third graders of Stephanie s class form a first person plural voice as they set their vivid imaginations loose on the playground and turn against their former ringleader and The Bird Thing a slice of horror in which a maid s traumatic memories feed a monster is told in the second person And then there s Junkie Rabbit a first person story set among a coca consuming colony of pet rabbits gone feral It s Watership Down on speed Indeed drug use and wildness are recurring tropes and there s a hallucinatory uality to these stories somewhere between languid and frantic that suits the subject matterBefore starting this I knew nothing about the relatively recent conflict in Colombia It s estimated that there were 60000 forced disappearances on top of the documented carnage We meet one character who has his hand chopped off for publishing the wrong kind of articles but the country s atrocities usually show up in asides woven in so subtly and elegantly that they re among the most arresting passages in the bookOn Saturdays you got to run to the riverside slide down the bank and go swimming or throw stones or try to catch tiny silver fish with your bare hands then feed them leftovers from lunch Except when the bodies were floating in the water Rumor was that men always floated face up women face down Sometimes there were vultures sitting on them and sometimes not But if there were bodies you would just go to the little stream instead and that was better There the fish would eat rice straight from your hand grains floating through the water like confetti thrown at a weddingAlmost every story has at least one paragraph that striking I thought two stories added less than the others and might have been cut to get the page count down closer to 200 but for the originality of the setup and the sheer excellence of the writing this book can t be toppedOriginally published with images on my blog Bookish Beck
