SUMMARY The Mare

READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Mary Gaitskill FREE READ The Mare ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Tic older boy who awakens Velvet’s nascent passion The Mare traces Velvet’s journey between the vital violent world of the inner city and the world of the small town stable   In Gaitskill’s hands the timeless story of a girl and a horse is joined with a timely story of people from different races and classes trying to meet one another honestly The Mare is raw heart stirring and original From the Hardcover editi. The Brownsloved each other deeply from the back of the soul with intolerance in daily life National VelvetA Booktuber I used to follow initially put this book on my radar when he rated this the best book of 2015 and surprised most of his viewers because they didn t think a story about a girl and her horse would hold his attention He is usually drawn to gritty dark and desperate first rate novels That should have been an indicator that this wasn t going to be a sunny modern adaptation of National Velvet like I d imagined or even a wonderful character study like my favorite modern horse story The Horse Whisperer Gaitskill s novel is sordid violent and riddled with abusive language and graphic scenes of urban life I think it s best you know that up frontso you re prepared The two main characters are Velvet Vargas an eleven year old Dominican American girl from Crown Heights Brooklyn and Ginger a sort of patron whom she meets through a summer program for disadvantaged minority children from New York inner cities The two immediately bond and discover that Velvet has a way with horses even befriending a wild abused mare called Fugly Girl Over time the relationship between the three becomes closer and complicated especially because of Velvet s abusive mother and her everyday life among bullies and gang violence when not visiting Ginger in upstate New York I really wanted to discontinue reading this about a third of the way in because it made me very uncomfortable I m not a person who shies away from complicated literature but I hoped that this would be going some where I have to add that I am also okay with character studies and plot exempt books too This didn t do it for me When I finally got to the end I was so underwhelmed and disappointed view spoiler I had hoped that somewhere along the way a mature adult would get involved and remove Velvet and her brother from their abusive environment Forgive me for being optimistic hide spoiler

READ & DOWNLOAD ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF à Mary Gaitskill FREE READ The Mare ✓ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF R academic husband Paul who wonder what it will mean to “make a difference” in such a contrived situation Gaitskill illuminates their shifting relationship with Velvet over several years as well as Velvet’s  encounter with the horses at the stable down the road especially with an abused unruly mare called Fugly Girl With strong supporting characters Velvet’s abusive mother an eccentric horse trainer a charisma. A mare and a young girl Two battered souls who found each other and together they conuered the world At first I thought I m dropping this book as soon as some sentimental emotional manipulation of the reader shows its annoying face I wasn t in the mood for something like Lassy Comes Home in horsy language I was in the mood for a cozy nice relaxing read But no frills no fuzz pleaseWhat a wake up call Alas I turned out to be so deeply involved in the story of the disadvantage 11 year old Dominican girl from Crown Heights Brooklyn who received an opportunity through the Fresh Air Fund to visit a couple in upstate New York for two weeksA field filled with unattended emotional landmines lay waiting for Velvet her single mother Silvia her brother Dant and the couple Paul and Ginger Somewhere in the middle their worlds collided the inner city harshness against the gentle bucolic calmness Ginger s need for children drove her to compete with Silvia for Velvet s attention and soul Abusive Silvia could not compete with Ginger s gentle onslaught Between these two women a young girl tried to find her way in both worlds Velvet fell in love with Ginger s world but knew she did not belong there she despised the world she was coming from but could not escape it The complexities in all the characters made the journey through a field of deadly social and emotional traps much challenging The two weeks ended up being several years in which Velvet became a young woman As far as she proceeded within both worlds different landmines exploded racism prejudice jealousy ignorance competition language barriers gangsterism cultural differences abuse the list goes on and on Nobody could be trusted in any of Velvet s two worlds All the people involved were deeply flawed human beings with limited coping skills which makes this story so much endearing Even Fugly Girl a uarter horse thoroughbred mix had her own backstory preventing her from trusting humans But the moment she met Velvet her story began a new chapter For both young girl and horse a new dawn broke A magic recognition of each other s hurt and insecurities took place with no words in human language needed This is a tough read The story is as much character as plot driven Four protagonists carry this deeply compassionate moving tale towards the sober but dignified ending A monumental climax to a tumultuous journey No winners no losers apart from Velveteen and Fugly Girl Only reality got the chance to push the reset button in the endABSOLUTELY RECOMMENDED
