    Paperback ô The Diviners Epub ↠ diviners kindle, The Diviners PDF/EPUBI haven't been much of a fan of Margaret Laurence's work in the past mainly because I found many of her characters a little on the whiny side And if there's one thing I refuse to do is spend substantial amounts of time with a whiner But the fact is Morag Gunn heroine of The Diviners grabbed me Barring the brief period she spent spineless and married to the good professor Morag's got balls A lot of self doubt inner talk who doesn't? and balls And importantly in a way that doesn't deprive any of her male counterparts of theirs A number of big issues are tackled in this book but tackled gracefully in the context of story and not for mere didactic purposes and in a way that leaves you with questions than before and grateful for it Laurence is clearly a prose master and if she were alive today I'd send her a strongly worded letter saying so leaving out the bits about me thinking Rachel Cameron and Stacy MacAindra were whi

    Paperback ô The Diviners Epub ↠ diviners kindle, The Diviners PDF/EPUBI found this book in the back of a Salvation Army and flipped through it I bought it entirely because I was interested in the sheet music at the back and I had no intention of actually reading the book But after reading the lyrics of the songs I wanted to know who was Lazarus King of Nothing? Who was Piquette? This book is raw The characters are flawed You can't help but absolutely inhale this story as you follow Morag's harsh and bitter and somehow innocent life The themes and hidden meanings are richly arranged Bois Brulees f

    Paperback ô The Diviners Epub ↠ diviners kindle, The Diviners PDF/EPUBAn intelligent slow read for me I loved it I don't really know why except maybe that I appreciated its honesty and I think this level of honesty is rare I imagine that Laurence was a rational two feet on the ground type of person and I wish I could have known her I have people like this in my life and I find them refreshing and easy My version of this book has a fantastic Afterword by Timothy Findley At only three or four pages long it does a much better job than me obviously at articulating this REALNESS of The Diviners Regarding its history as a banned book he says it has been plagued by the dread fear of honesty I couldn't agree
