    Reader Ô The Break The Break5 huge bright red stars from meWhen I first saw The Break at the bookstore it caught my interest but I decided against it as it had a trigger warning for violence I can be sensitive to violence however knowing in advance it does take some of the sensitivity away I saw it again at the library and knew then that I was going to have to read it It was definitely a good read for me I felt that Katherena Vermette handled the violence well and is so well written that I didn't feel sensitive towards it at all The Break is an emotional powerful and intense literary thriller about the strength and love that connects a family of women and friends together while dealing with a violent act The Break refers to a field between two rolls of houses but also refers to broken relationships The story is told in shifting perspectives of connecting ch

    Reader Ô The Break The Break25 starsThis is the story of four generations of Metis women and their families It explores their love for one another and bond through life’s daily struggles stresses and horrors It is a heart breaking and haunting novel that will stay with me for uite a while I found the entire storyline sad and depressing which I’m sure most readers will agree with I couldn’t connect with any of the characters as I found there were too many of them to keep track of There is a family tree illustration provided but even with that I still struggled to keep the women and generations of families separate which really took away from my reading experience I will w

    Reader Ô The Break The BreakOne of my top reads of 2016 Vermette stuns and reveals with this gritty heartbreaking ultimately hopeful story of a circle of indigenous Manitoban women coping with and doing their damndest to heal and heal each other from the violent racist realities of their lives Deceptively simple writing that packs a wallop; intricately plotted in a way that goes deeper than mere cleverness I'd love it to become reuired reading for white folks everywhere but especially white Canadians
