Perhaps Lacking a common desire or situation thereader may have difficulty opening herself to a character– in my case the relationship between a middle agedlibrarian and a doomed teenaged prostituteSlammerkin places a very young woman in a desperatelypoor household where she is neither loved nor consultedabout how her life will unfoldAll evidence points to a miserable and colorlesscontinuation of her mother’s life of poverty drudgeryand subju

    PDF/EPUB Emma Donoghue Ó Slammerkin PDF Ì Ó slammerkin pdf, Slammerkin PDFEPUBI was highly disappointed by this book especially since it received some really good reviews The writing style was fine and Emma Donoghue painted a fairly accurate portrait of 18th century London These are the only things which made me give this novel 2 starsotherwise it would've been a 1 star book I thought the narrative's main flaw lay in its heroine Mary Saunders To me she was very 2 dimensional she was vain vapid egotistical wholly unapologetic about her thoughtsfeelingsactions that she was just completely unrelatable I found her to be very unsympathetic and for me that made getting through the book very difficult Many times as readers we look for something within a character which can be relatable to our own lives but the characterization of Mary Saunders was suc

    PDF/EPUB Emma Donoghue Ó Slammerkin PDF Ì Ó slammerkin pdf, Slammerkin PDFEPUBThis book is anti erotica Its about a girl who is forced into prostitution by a totally heartless world London in the eighteeth century and who progresses in the course of the book from an innocent to the most depraved of humanity The story wends its way from beginning to end and is interesting and readable but it is a crabbed view of humanity unlightened by any hope of redemption or joy I enjoyed reading it once but its not one of those books I will seek out again

I had a near obsession with England especially the age of Austen It was the euipment and accoutrement of the rich that particularly fascinated me Jane Austen probably began this but there must have been some other source that I cannot recall Even the poverty stricken orphans of the later Dickensian world were painted with Romance for me because didn't some of them get found? Didn't the end turn out all right? Look at Oliver Whatever blackness existed I know I blocked it out This book makes that blackness extremely real Slammerkin is a brutal look at one particul
