    Happiness Kindle Ø Hardcover happiness free, Happiness PDFI was sure I would adore this book and I enjoyed plenty of it but parts left me bored and slightly confused This is a story of chance and coincidence of strangers meeting and lives slowly changing and I loved that aspect of it But it is also a book about animals in urban places and that I was not so keen onAminatta Forna tells her story slowly and considerately I had the impression that every word every sentence was placed very thoughtfully and carefully While I can appreciate her craft I also found it lifeless Her prose was just not uite sharp enough for me to excuse the rambling nature of her narrative While it is certainly accomplished for me something was lacking And I cannot uite put my fingers on what exactly the missing ingredient was but as it is I found the overall book less compelling than its many partsPart of that has to do with the fact that I found her two protagonists Attila the psycholo

    Happiness Kindle Ø Hardcover happiness free, Happiness PDFAminatta Forna has been established as one of my favourite writers ever since I read The Memory of Love Two of her other books The Devil That Danced on the Water and The Hired Man are also among my favourites So my expectations for this one were very high and I was not disappointedLike The Hired Man this one starts uietly and builds towards a moving resolution The opening tells of a wolfer wolf hunter in Massachusetts in 1834 but most of the book is set in modern London making this the first of Forna's novels to be set

    Happiness Kindle Ø Hardcover happiness free, Happiness PDF35 starsHappiness is a slow burn that took a while to get into at first Yet there is so much depth to this book that one cannot easily dismiss it Flashbacks and long ago histories are used to show that coincidence does not exist Instead Forna chooses to highlight the inter relatedness of humans to one another and to our environment In this way Happiness is a love story One that is honest and tenderly develops over time Early on we are introduced to Jean a wildlife biologist studying canids in urban areas and Attila a psychologist who travels to war torn countries and examines the impact of trauma Their relationship lies in the background of what defines Happiness Through the voice of Attila Forna examines our ideas of happiness In Western society this notion of contentment is about the belief that we are owed pleasure This theory assumes that we come into the world happy and as long as hardship doesn’t knock on our door we remain blissful and at

    Happiness Kindle Ø Hardcover happiness free, Happiness PDFA very thought provoking book Is there such a thing as normal In the West we are sanitised from death to a large extent bereavement and loss can be all consuming But in other war torn parts of the world death can be an everyday part of life Does trauma necessarily mean that we are damaged Or does it mean that we are only changed“The trouble with happiness thought Attila was that perhaps because infants seemed such happy creatures people were led to believe that happiness came with a mother’s milk happiness was man’s state of nature of which all else was a warping The search to return to that state became unending But they were mistaken for what they desired so badly wasn’t happiness but a state of prelapsarian innocence the thing that babies possessed They wanted desperately not to know the truth”This story is also about the interconnectedness of life not only human but animal and plant li

    Happiness Kindle Ø Hardcover happiness free, Happiness PDFWhat a wonderful story The ending gave me exactly the feeling of that scene in a film where the hero has made a great sacrifice and now must die alone as snow is falling To carry my filmic metaphor to ridiculous lengths I'll add that the whole book feels like an old film that was shot on nitrate based material and it has been not well cared for or properly stored so there are many scenes that should be there but the frames have dulled over or blooms of sepia have obscured a critical scene one that might have connected one part of the story to the next part As it is I freuently could not understand the movement and logic of the story It felt like the pieces of many stories This is not always a bad thing
