Free read Out of the Easy ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB review Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB × Ruta Sepetys Ruta Sepetys × 6 Free read Uth dangling temptation at every turn and escalating to the ultimate test With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets lies and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destin. How many college girls cleaned cathouses I was watching a show on tv today and heard the over used phrase You can t have your cake and eat it too to which I replied Why not When in the history of ever has someone had the dilemma of being given a piece of cake which they weren t allowed to eat dietetic reasons don t count Why would you ever want to have a piece of cake if you couldn t eat it I have to go with Marie Antoinette and her stance of letting people eat cakeor not as it turns out that she didn t really say thisWhat does my book review have to do with cake you ask New Orleans was the cake that I wanted to eat but never got to Out of the Easy should have delivered on the promise of New Orleans A few mentions of brick dust it s a voodoo thing Mardi Gras and dropping the names of famous streets struggled to fully cement the atmosphere of life at a brothel in the Big Easy during the mid twentieth century I longed to be a part of the surroundings and never uite felt like I made it there in full capacitySince this wasn t a setting driven book we re left to look at the styles of story driven and character driven I would consider Out of the Easy to be a little bit of both but if I had to pick a stronger point I d be likely to fall on the character driven side The cast of characters were an eclectic bunch From the snappy madam to the kindly driver each person had a certain uality which made them uniue You re named after a madam I m named after a murderer Mine s worse There were offbeat characters There was a murder mystery There were the obstacles of prejudice to overcome There was the the tale of a woman coming of age and how she had to learn to make her own way in the world outside of her mother s stigma as a prostituteI first fell in love with Ruta Sepetys writing with her now well known book Between Shades of Gray which was absolutely brilliant and showcased the passion that one writer could have in wanting to bring a hidden story to life she went on her own pilgrimage to find out the history of her people in order to write the book Even though I appreciated and enjoyed Sepetys effort with Out of the Easy I think I mentally set the bar high in hoping that this book would eual my strong feelings for BSOG While I found Out of the Easy an engaging read I don t know if I ever fully attached to the story in the way I would have liked toEven so I still have so much love for her style of writing I m pretty sure that I d read anything this author put out there She has this way of drawing you in through beautiful prose and small hints of things to come With both of her books there was an underlying message of holding on to hope The reader wants to hope for for these charactersJo wanted to get Out of the Easy I wanted her to get out as well This is why I kept reading to see if she could make her dreams reality I still don t know if I want to go 3 or 4 on the rating If it changes my apologies

Free read Out of the Easy ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB review Õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB × Ruta Sepetys Ruta Sepetys × 6 Free read It's 1950 and as the French uarter of New Orleans simmers with secrets seventeen year old Josie Moraine is silently stirring a pot of her own Known among locals as the daughter of a brothel prostitute Josie wants out of life than the Big Easy has to offer She devises a plan get out but a mysterious. 45If you d asked me about historical fiction two years ago I would have told you it wasn t my thing It had long been a genre that just didn t appeal to me But after discovering goodreads and getting awesome recommendations as well as hearing about books I would otherwise never have known about I ve ran into a series of books that have proved I was wrong about this genre From the bright lights and dazzling atmosphere of Libba Bray s 1920s supernatural murder mystery The Diviners to the character driven story of a Wales occupied by England The Wicked and the Just to a creepy ghost story set at the time of the First World War In the Shadow of Blackbirds and now thisI confess that I was one of the few people who struggled to fully appreciate Between Shades of Gray I know I suck but I had no such problem with Ruta Sepetys second novel and I think I finally understand what it was about the first that failed for me and why this one delivered the characters Both are character driven novels and even though there were numerous threats to the characters survival in Between Shades of Gray the plot is slow moving and your ability to enjoy it depends on some connection with the characters I lacked this My cold heart felt nothing than the general human sympathy we all typically feel for others who suffer When people died it was sad because you know it s sad when people die not because I really cared about the charactersOut of The Easy is similar in that the characters are the main focus and the plot is slowly built around them But these characters I loved so so much Or loathed but either will keep me interested in a novel s outcome The setting is 1950s New Orleans and the protagonist is the teenage daughter of a prostitute and possibly the worst mother ever Josie longs to escape from The Big Easy and go to college but she is forever being pulled back by her mother and her ties to the brothel where she works as housekeeper Sepetys introduces a number of lively and colourful characters into this story from the fierce and wonderful Willie who runs the brothel to the shameless and hilarious Dora who works thereThe patriarchal hierarchy of women puts such lusty wenches as these right down at the bottom and it is common to picture a prostitute as a tragic and doomed character like Fantine from Les Mis rables For Sepetys to take such an interesting look into the lives and dealings of prostitutes and to show them as strong funny and oddly empowered women really made me love this book I don t mean that she portrays prostitution as in any way a good profession these women would much rather be somewhere else of course they would But she portrays them as human beings who have been dealt a bad hand in life and instead of falling into a pit of despair they have taken control of their lives doing what they have to in order to survive It is incredibly effective and I was all the angry at the people who sneered at them because of itThis book is one which is at times very funny or heartwarming and at others sad and frustrating in a good way It is frustrating to be inside Josie s head and have to deal with her mother it is frustrating when people expect Josie to never achieve anything just because of where she came from But it is a good frustrating because you care so much The dialogue is also fantastic and I laughed out loud several times and teared up towards the end Very very good I am so pleased I gave this author another chance

    [New] (Out of the Easy) By Ruta Sepetys I'm reading Out of the Easy exactly a year after reading Between Shades of Gray Sadly the experience was as far and distinct as the setting in the two books I was disappointed to say the least Out of the Easy missed nearly every mark and lacked all the heartbreaking finesse we found in her first novel Not that there isn't an emotional hook the subject matter while not as ambitious as Between Shades of Gray is one that could lift the spiri
