Read Ê PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Susan Juby Free read The Truth Commission è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Ein Häppchen Wahrheit gefällig Oder darf's doch ein bisschen mehr seinDas Leben ist nichts für Feiglinge denken sich die drei Freunde Dusk Neil und Normandy zu Beginn des 11 Schuljahres und starten ein gewagtes Experiment Einmal jede Woche wird abwechselnd einer der drei einem Menschen. The I write the I realize that when you tell a story you shape the truth What you leave in what you leave out every word and every emphasis changes the meaning Writers create the truth for better or worse This book really affected me I don t know that I have ever read a book that manages to be so lighthearted and humourous and yet so increasingly horrific and infuriating as it moves along There are so many things to praise about this book that I don t know where to start Also uite ironically for a book called The Truth Commission I ve got to be careful what I tell you I don t want to give away the dark depths this seemingly light book is headed towards But let me just agree with all the reviewers who said this it will make you madAnd the thing is for most of this book I thought I was already mad I mean I thought I knew what people were talking about and yes it was pissing me off But to borrow the old phrase I hadn t seen anything yetThe Truth Commission is a novel of exceptional writing detailed characterization and relationships feminism and criticism of slut shaming family and friendship truth and lies It s also about the subtle ways the truth can be distorted to extreme effect and the truths we wish we could unlearn This is a story about easy truths hard truths and those things best left unsaid The narrator is a girl and artist called Normandy Pale and the story revolves around her family and friends The family aspect mainly concerns her sister Keira who is a famous graphic novel artist and has long drained the spotlight from Normandy s efforts But it also looks at the impact of her sister s fame on their parents and Normandy herself Because Keira s stories are than just stories they are weaved with elements of truth Featuring characters who are clearly based on their family members and containing private stories that were meant to stay within the family But that s the price for having a successful sisterdaughter rightAlongside this Normandy and her art school friends establish what they call The Truth Commission which is essentially a way of asking fellow students and teachers for their truths Finding out the reasons behind what they do and who they are with surprising insightful and often uplifting conseuences By doing so the implication is that everyone is a complex human being with their own story Rights and wrongs victims and villains come into uestion It s way easier when you have someone to blame We want a victim and a villain and a simple story and for everyone to play their role Personally I have always been a fan of books that transcend themes that do different things and do them all well I like this kind of multi layered story better And The Truth Commission is one of those books It is a book that made me both snort with laughter and clench my teeth in furyI thought it was excellent and thought provokingBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube Pinterest
