    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubThis book utterly defies categorization It begins with a brief introduction of four girl cousins winging their way back to Pono's coffee farm in the 1990s Then it jumps back in time and becomes historical fiction with a smattering of magical realism Hawaii's sad and painful past is covered with special emphasis on the way lepers were treated through the decades But it's also a family saga following the generations of women in Pono's family beginning with the unlikely pairing of a Tahitian princess and a one eyed white sailor in the 1830s Pono the dream teller is the character holding together the entire story She was born with mystical powers Many people fear her the way the

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubA great first novel about Hawaii with specific political views I've seen one criticism I agree strongly with one the need for an editor the copy shown in the picture looks like a galley there are rampant spelling mistakes and run on sentences A few times characters travel the same routes and the drive is described almost identically twice Someone wrote that this b

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubCount me as one Haole Wahine who really enjoyed the lessons this book had to offer It spanned Hawaiian history from the 1800s to present day through the eyes of several generations of strong women from one family I've been to Hawaii a handful of times and this book gave me perspective on why native islanders are not always uite so happy to welcome new residents from the mainland I'd heard about this from a friend who lived there but lacked the background to understand the history behind it It also gave me an understanding of Hawaiian folklore and the meaning Hawaiians give to sharks their land their waters

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubI liked the first 70ish pages about the matriarch Kelonikoa the daughter of a Tahitian chief The writing was colorful and vibrant Hawaiian history and geogarphy were wonderfully described But now Pono Kelonikoa's great granddaughter has come on stage The writing is just too dramatic too graphic with slaughter and rape and magical realism that is simply too weird I am fighting my desire to just dump this book I REALLY am not enjoying myself Usch do I have to continue with this I am on page 126 of 492 There is no map and you have to constantly look up the Hawaiian words in the glossary at the back I am going to bed I will do anything but read this bookI forgot to mention neither is there any humor After sleeping on it I have decided NOT to continue Parts were well written so I am giving it two stars Frankly

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubOh my God this book was SO GOODI don't really even know where to start I suppose I will start with the simple fact that Kiana Davenport is a beautiful writer I don't know how it's possible for anyone to produce almost 500 pages of such terribly beautiful writing I say terribly beautiful because some of the things she writes about are truly terrible I don't want to give away too much of the story but take my word for it if you read this book you will have images burned into your brain that I don't think you will forget any time soon or maybe everI have been to Hawaii one time in my life had never had any interest

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubI read Shark Dialogues while in Hawaii and it made me enjoy the book than I would have The language strays into over adjectival cheesiness especially whenever anyone admires nature or has sex And although I'm sympathetic to the claims of the Hawaiian sovereignty movement it really bums me out to read a novel that's openly sympathetic to terrorism Sorry Davenport but I just can't get down with thatAnyway the real reason to read this book is for the first half when Davenport skillfully not sure how accurately but who cares narrates the settling and annexation of Hawaii It's already an unbelievable enraging and too little told story and Davenport makes the history come to life in vivid detailHowever by the time we zero in on Pono's granddaughters and their political and sexual passions it's time to put down the book The vibrancy of Davenport's earlier writing leaches away to the strident disapproval of men hotels the American mainland capitalism I'm not nece

    Paperbackµ Shark Dialogues eBook æ shark epub, dialogues ebok, Shark Dialogues EpubThis story is so amazing I loved the integration of the history of Hawai'i into the matriarchal genealogy of the main character Pono The first half of the book was so engrossing I read it in one day Pono's stories and history were beautiful and powerful But the second half sort of lost me The cousins' stories were harder to keep track of in terms of who was the daughter of whom And the language got a little repetitive I love reading about Hawai'i's rich and sad history about mixed women about powerful women
