    MOBI Joanne Harris Ý Holy Fools PDF â Ý holy ebok, fools kindle, Holy Fools MOBIHoly Fools 0 552 77001 9What happened here? I loved Chocolat and I adored Five uarters of the Orange Holy Fools however seems like it came from a completely different author The book is acceptable but not up to Harris' standards To start the Mother Daughter theme that Harris employs so well is deeply underdeveloped here as of a plot device than anything else There was a lot of potential here a nun with a beloved daughter raising her to be safe from the outside world and yet perhaps a little too sheltered Unfortunately the daughter seems a little underdeveloped neither rebellious and wanting to know the curiosities of the outside world nor a little too content in her cocoon Instead the daughter seems only to exist to serve as a kidnaphostage victim so that our heroine cannot effectively flee or intervene when the madness begins I could accept the daughter as hostage plot device w

    MOBI Joanne Harris Ý Holy Fools PDF â Ý holy ebok, fools kindle, Holy Fools MOBIA gorgeous compelling story set in mediaeval France Holy Fools has all the ingredients I love in Joanne Harris’s books There’s a strong complex heroine with pagan inclinations a few villains a slightly gothic setting and a lot of less than comfortable reflections on the human condition Harris has a very warts and all approach to portraying people She doesn’t tend to do clear lines between the wholly good and the wholly bad and I love this about her workOne of the themes running through this novel is that way in which people are often complicit in their own oppression In trying to please the oppressor and trying to avoid punishment we give other names to the witch hunter We accuse someone else to take attention from ourselves So often what is called for in oppressive scenarios is a banding together to fight off the tyrant If there’s one tyrant and many people being mistreated weight of numbers should fix it but often it doesn’t Instead in trying to protect ourselv

    MOBI Joanne Harris Ý Holy Fools PDF â Ý holy ebok, fools kindle, Holy Fools MOBIAlthough I really enjoy reading Harris’s works I’m beginning to wonder if she has something against the Catholic church In the majority of the books I’ve read written by her someone or something from the Catholic church ends up being the baddie and the Church itself is inevitably portrayed as corrupted and judgmental I’m not Catholic but I’d hope that someone who is as lovely an author as she is could branch out a little in her pool for villainsThis book while still engaging in much magical realism isn’t uite as engaging as some of her other works It tells the story of Juliette – a former wire walker a type of acrobatic tight rope walker who has abandoned her old life in order to take care of her daughter She has chosen an out of the way monastery by the ocean in order to do this and has r
