    The Egg and I Kindle Ï The Egg Kindle - î MOBI nessville.me The Egg epub, The Egg and I PDFI'm giving this a very generous 2 stars due to the excellent scenic descriptions of the Washington state environment I got a real sense of the beauty and bounty of the area and that's one thing I always enjoy about a bookOtherwise MaCDonald's brand of humor isn't one shared by me and I found nothing remotely funny about her life on a chicken farm in the 1940's There's a bitterness about her observations of people not herself that manifests itself as a mean spirited bigotry that you often find in older books I'm one of the last people to jump on the PC patrol wagon for a book written prior to the 1960's but even I could hardly stomach some of MacDonald's catty remarks about people who between the lines I read were uneducated but overall warm hearted and willing to try and be friends and friendly with the MacDonald's in the way that came easiest to them And don't e

    The Egg and I Kindle Ï The Egg Kindle - î MOBI nessville.me The Egg epub, The Egg and I PDFOh this bookI would give 90% of it 5 stars but the other 10% gets negative stars So whatever that evens out to is anyone's guessThe author is so talented and her prose so sprightly in parts and poetic in others that there can be no doubt as to the uality of the writing Much if not most of it is fantasticMy biggest problem with this book is the author's deeply ingrained snobbery and worse racism She's dismissive of all her neighbors drawing blood with her pen as she eviscerates their housekeeping skills personal appearance and lack of education She's unbearable when discussing the Native American population of the rural Washington community she moves to writing such hateful things that even when you take into account the times in which she grew up there can be no mitigation of her small mindedness which is ironic given her near manic attempts to sprinkle her prose with French phrases literary name checks and o

    The Egg and I Kindle Ï The Egg Kindle - î MOBI nessville.me The Egg epub, The Egg and I PDFAs far as I'm concerned this is the best book ever written By anybody And go figure it's non fiction a rarity for me anyway MacDonald as a bride in the 1920s fell prey to her new husband's long cherished dream of owning a chicken ranch so off they went to the wilderness of Washington to raise chickens in a remote mountain location where the nearest neighbors were a two mile walk away Frankly living in the wilderness without electricity or indoor plumbing she carried water from a spring not far from their pro

    The Egg and I Kindle Ï The Egg Kindle - î MOBI nessville.me The Egg epub, The Egg and I PDFI should have adored this I have loved all of Betty Macdonald's other books and I've been saving this one up as a treat But it just didn't do it for me There seemed much mean spiritness than in her other books Of course her spikey pointed observations are what make her writing so delightful but barbed humour only works well when one delights in the shafts because they're aimed at a shared and justified target And here I found myself completely out of harmony with her There's the obvious atrocious racism I'll pass over that because it's been said many times before that it's a serious flaw possibly an unforgiveable flaw in the book though I found interesting the idea that what she was really objecting to was the sexism What I disliked as much as the racism though was the harping on about the filthiness and unappealing ualities of almost every local person she enco
