    PDF/EPUB Robin McKinley å PDF/EPUB Deerskin PDF/EPUB · å 12th century.co deerskin mobile, Deerskin ePUBThis book strikes such a discord in me that I have to start reviewing before actually finishing it Halfway through the writing is beautiful exuisite but circles around and repeats itself so often I was on page 90 before anything had actually happened which would be fine except for the hazy treatment of rape and incest It doesn't capture the seriousness or tragedy And having finished it I think the same Boring is a mild word for it I've never read anything that dragge

    PDF/EPUB Robin McKinley å PDF/EPUB Deerskin PDF/EPUB · å 12th century.co deerskin mobile, Deerskin ePUBThis is one of my all time favorite books McKinley's writing is amazing dreamlike gut wrenching heartwarming and this book is not for everyone It has a very dark tone the first few chapters are very painful to read Your heart will be ripped to pieces several times before the book ends BUT despite all of this I found it to be a very uplifting story of triumph loveDeerskin is the story of Princess Lissar who at first glance appears to live a charmed life Actually once we dig a little deeper we realize Lissar is very alone isolated in her world Her parents don't seem to remember she exists she has no friends The turning point begins when her mother dies and she receives a puppy as a gift of condolence from Prince Ossin whom she names Ash Her Dad crazy with grief over the loss of

    PDF/EPUB Robin McKinley å PDF/EPUB Deerskin PDF/EPUB · å 12th century.co deerskin mobile, Deerskin ePUBOh my I scarcely know what to say about this book It's actually not uite 5 stars but I'd feel bad only giving it fourIt's wrenching maddening lyrical unflinchingly honest in the way of fairy tales and it's terribly sad If it weren't for the dogs I'm not sure I could've read it I knew it was about a woman who was raped by her father when I bought it It was on a list compiled by NPR of books about strong women That's why I bought it I thought I was prepared for it I work as a practicing psychotherapist and have sat in my office with women and men who have been through this same thing I have been enraged before by the way families and society blame the victim in situations like this And yet when I read it in this book I was so upset I had to stop reading for a whileI got up and cleaned my kitchen walked the dogs cast around for some light hearted simple minded book to read Then I decided to pick it up again I'd put it aside right after the rape and his killing of her
