Touch Author Alexi Zentner Summary ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Read Touch Author Alexi Zentner In Sawgamet a north woods boomtown gone bust the cold of winter breaks the glass of the schoolhouse thermometer and the dangers of working in the cuts are overshadowed by the mysteries and magic lurking in the woods Stephen a pa. It s funny I usually start out my reviews with a short little blurb of my own just rehashing the particulars of the story With Touch though this story was so all over the place that I can t adeuately explain it s basis it simply eludes me The official summary feels deceiving and makes it sound ripe with potential but it never lived up it that s for sure I truly feel as if I ve been hoodwinked I blame the stunning cover shakes fist But honestly I recall going through this magical realism stage and added practically every book tagged as such This is one of them I m thinking that if the author isn t Sarah Addison Allen then I apparently don t care much for magical realism It should be said that according to the Reading Group Discussion uestions yeah I read them in hopes that it would clarify some things I was wrong this is considered along the lines of mythical realism as it incorporates Inuit mythology While I could say that the incorporation of mythological elements may give it a smidgen of credibility in comparison to strange magical stuff happening for no apparent reason it was a poorly managed addition to the story The story is centered around this small town in the Canadian wilderness which came into existence only after gold was discovered It s a story about survival But then out of nowhere some strange creature would pop up and it was like mental whiplash Like the mahaha actual creatures name I wasn t just laughing They tickle you until all your breath is gone Leave you dead but with a smileHoly freaky shit That s the stuff of nightmares But I was intrigued and wanted to know so I googled this scary beasty with the funny name The page I found described the mahaha in basically the exact same way the author did in the book Like it was copied And that kind of killed the cool out of it To me magical realism IS the story it s incorporated and intertwined into the very fabric of the story But all the magical elements in Touch felt like a strange and ill fitting addition that was added as an afterthought to an otherwise contemporary tale of survival The writing style itself apart from the actual story was lacking a much needed finesse The tale was not linear and bounced all over the place without any indication as to whether we were back in the present tense or still being told the story of the past The point of view was a poor choice as well The grandson is the narrator retelling his grandfather s story Why not just have the grandfather tell his own story Even though the grandfather told him his story it seemed unlikely that he would know as many details as he did There were also strange leaps to other characters and telling the story through there eyes which definitely made it implausible as his grandfather wasn t even present in those instances While the writing reflected definite potential it was too unpolished for me to enjoy I can t remember the last time if ever I finished a novel and honestly had absolutely no clue the purpose or meaning of it So much of this story was too farcical in its inconceivability for me to garner any sort of entertainment Many people have lauded this book for it s eerie haunting ualities but ultimately this left me chilled for all the wrong reasons
