Touck Everlasting Book Review
It is such a time-honored novel that children who miss the connections might be amazed to find out at the end of the book that it is about 1880. It is a fairytale in many ways, with a magic source, a abducted hero, an bewitched pretty princely and even a bitter-sweet ending.
In Natalie Babbitt's exuberant description of forests, lakes and wildlife, the novel evolves from a simple narrative to a lyric mediation about the nature order. It is a beautiful book for reading with a child who has seen the deaths of an elderly kin. Kids will be curious about Winnie's choice of live and die.
Natalie Babbitt's Tuck Everlasting
Last night I saw a film that made me think a little about living, being human and immortal. I' m not really aware of any other book dealing with the topic of living and the dangers of mortality, except this one. Yeah, I still don't think I'd appreciate everlasting living. Reinventing yourself and having to orientate yourself in the world.
Again and again a timeless and endless live in charity and bereavement. I' m thinking about Winnie's election, how bitter-sweet the end of that book was.
"Live. I' had been through more than half of this book and still asked myself:'What's so wrong with not to die? Once I used to hate snows, I'm an fall babe and I just adore springs. I' m not a big fans of sunshine and sunshine. It' getting nicer every now and then.
I like that you know that some things get more and more pretty when you see them. Yet there are some things that stay as pretty as the first few days you've seen them, never really getting any less or more. What does this have to do with the inspection?
But what if there was no birth of springs, no celebration of summers, no killing of autumns and no burial of whites in winters? It'?s a lifetime without changes. Eternal stagnation. Wouldn't this kind of living be so valuable? After all, I don't think I appreciate or find the beauty of the natural world and the different saison.
Duration and changes are part of the whole lifetime. Childbirth and deaths, different times of the year, luxuriant and meager saplings - that is the cycle of this world. That is what this book is trying to say. The Tucks are a wretched people condemned to lead an infinite existence, they carry the bane of deaths.
Winnie finds out a little about the value of living in the first weeks of August, in 1880. It was a straightforward and wonderful thing, this whole thing, the writings, the message.
