review The Cure for Death by Lightning Ó eBook or Kindle ePUB Gail Anderson-Dargatz ß 3 characters read & download · eBook or Kindle ePUB ß Gail Anderson-Dargatz When fifteen year old Beth Week’s family is attacked by a grizzly her father becomes increasingly violent making him a danger to his neighbors his family and especially Beth Meanwhile several young children from the nearby Indian reservation have gone missing and Beth fears that something is pursuing her in the bush But friendship wit. Reviewers descriptions of The Cure For Death By Lightning like brilliantbewitchingMysterious engaging are no exaggeration The Boston Globe describes the style as Pacific Northwest Gothic and I find it fitting This talented writer transports us to the interior of British Colombia during World War Two into the life of 15 year old Beth Weeks Although a mature teen would probably appreciate it The Cure For Death By Lightning is absolutely not a YA novel It is also not for the sueamish Taking place on an isolated farm there are fairly graphic descriptions of a the kind of things that normally happen on farms like farm animals getting slaughteredfarm animals getting attacked by wild animals as well as humans getting attacked by wild animals and vis versa and sexual abuse against animals This is just the backdrop for the actual story is about Beth coming of age in a very family coping with both poverty and mental illness Her father both paranoid and aggressive sexually abuses her Her mother retreats into her own world talking to her dead mother Bullied by the kids in her school Beth finds refuge in her friendships with some of the First Nations living in the reserve nearby Some of these characters like Filthy Billy named because he has Tourette s syndrome and Nora a girl her age with lesbian tendencies became my favourite characters along with Beth In spite of the harsh subject matter this is a beautiful book and I could not put it down The magical realism is subtle with flowers raining from the sky a magic scrapbook that always has new pages appearing an invisible coyote spirit or is it a crazy man who follows just out of sight This leads me to my only reservation regarding this book It s one that several other people have made too The author uses the First Nations Coyote figure as a menacing presence in the story It is my understanding that the Coyote is of a trickster I am not versed enough in Native American folklore say if this is always the case however it seems to me like it would have been appropriate to use a different figure better yet create her own possibly inspired by many myths That being said I am looking forwarding to reading by Gail Anderson Dargatz in fact I have the seuel Turtle Valley with me now
