    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBDespite the title this book isn't really about Jim the runaway slave from Mark Twain's classic Adventures of Huckleberry Finn The narrator Sadie Watson is Jim's wife and while she recounts the story of their courtship marriage and separation the book is really about the inhumanity of slavery and its cruel impact on black American families before during and after the Civil War While I applaud Rawles' effort to place Jim and Sadie's stories in a broader historical

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBThis book is such a brutal grinding portrayal of American slavery Nothing in tone or plot connected it to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn for me it's framed as a preuel other than it was a very contemporary and lucid look at slavery I came to this book euating American slavery with hard work in the hot sun accompanied by whippings I left euating American slavery with the systemic rape of women and children violent theft of small children from their mothers routine murder and white men so filled with racist rage that

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBHere is a way to destroy your faith in humanityfirst read a book about WWII and the Nazi occupation and then read one about slavery in the US Nice This was a beautifully written book accounting the life of the wife of Huckleberry Finn's Jim The writing style is as if her slightly educated granddaughter is writing the novel so it takes a bit of getting used to very little punctuation misspelled words slang etc but it really pulls you into t

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBI saw this book being the Seattle Reads selection and got it from my local library to read It's a very honest story about survival and the power of love Sadie the narrator of the book has some very simple things from her history that she managed to hold on to that she uses to tell her granddaughter her experiences in trying to help her with a difficult decision It's powerful how the author uses something as simple as a piece of a wooden bowl to not only carry so much history but also give Sadie the will to keep going when faced with such horrifying experiences Despite the title's reference

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBI read this as part of 'Seattle Reads' sponsored by the public library The book is narrative with the accent of the story teller strongly presented This may put some off I found the effect a little distracting until I adjusted to itThe story line is great Wh

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBWriting 3Story 3Satisfaction 2Maybe not the best book to pick up after The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn With the world immersive dialogue of Mark Twain still lingering Rawles's My Jim feels inauthentic and almost sterile in comparison Knowing that her dialogue was going to be compared to that of Twain I can't help but wonder why Rawles chooses to have her characters speak is a less slang heavy wayMy Jim is conceptually interesting but it honestly could have been about any other individual during this time period and I feel like

    PaperbackÚ My Jim Kindle ì My Jim ePUBWow This book is written in a prose that aims to take its reader back to the days just after slavery It is beautiful and without even knowing it found myself near tears at the lushness and heartbreak that the author invokes in the telling of a love story that is wrapped in a slave narrative It is the untold story of Jim the charater from Huckleberry Finn While in that book Jim seems only there to serve the interests and world view of Huck this book brings Jim and the wife and family that are ripped from him into full and aching reliefWonderful fast reading and tender in its understanding of loss love and how history play a role in it all
