    Hardcover ´ Unfamiliar Fishes ePUB Ø unfamiliar mobile, fishes epub, Unfamiliar Fishes eBookOh man Sarah Vowell is so good so fascinating Okay two things that hit me right off First this book has no chapters There are a few five maybe section breaks but basically it just starts and goes full on full bore for like the entire thing It makes for interesting bedtime reading because you never get to a stopping point Second Sarah Vowell is the one author who I read who you can literally FEEL the note cards being assembled into a narrative Her cross referencing and placing of interesting tidbits in the exact moment is so librarianesue it's amazing I love it I can just picture her there in her little room with her note cards tacked all over the wall Yarn is probably involved but that's probably because I'm confusing her with those obsessive serial killers on things like Dexter and Se7en who also pu

    Hardcover ´ Unfamiliar Fishes ePUB Ø unfamiliar mobile, fishes epub, Unfamiliar Fishes eBookSarah Vowell makes reading and learning history the most irreverent fun you can experience in confronting the reality of what actually occurred versus what textbooks sugarcoat or ignore The United States' acuisition of the Hawaii islands is eerily similar to the acuisition of America in its infancy when the Native Americans had

    Hardcover ´ Unfamiliar Fishes ePUB Ø unfamiliar mobile, fishes epub, Unfamiliar Fishes eBookI ADORE Sarah Vowell I usually gobble up her books and relish listening to the audio versions So this unfortunately was a disappointment for me I am not at all interested in Hawaii but was sure that I would be once I heard Sarah Vowell's version of it However the usually incredibly witty and often snarky Vowell was no where to be found Granted she made some fun of the missionaries coming from New England but not much This read much as a history of Hawaii with very few of the personal anecdotes and humor Vowell usually brings to her topic I saw her speak in Pasadena while on her

    Hardcover ´ Unfamiliar Fishes ePUB Ø unfamiliar mobile, fishes epub, Unfamiliar Fishes eBookI chose to read this after honeymooning in Hawaii and glimpsing the native culture as well as a barely perceptible undercurrent of malice toward the islands' many haole tourists I have a much better understanding of both having read this and wish I read it before my trip thereFor the record I don't read much non fiction and find history to be an incredibly dry and boring subject so this three star rating is a rather complimentary one considering the reader Especially if you consider that the history of the annexation of Hawaii starts off with a pilgrimage of New England missionaries and ends decades later in a bloodless legal coup can you think of a boring premise to base a book on The title of the novel comes from Hawaiian writer David Malo wi
