    A Single Swallow eBook ✓ A Single PDF or ´ eBook stockbag.info single epub, swallow free, A Single pdf, A Single Swallow EpubThis was a very delicately translated beautiful but also brutal and explicit story of three men during and at the end of WWII They all meet up as souls after their deaths to fulfill a pact they made to meet on the anniversary of the end of the war after they have all died They each tell their stories of how the same woman Ah Yan also known as Stella Wende and the Swallow touched their lives with love and dignity and each in very different waysAh Yan suffered many horrific and cruel things and even though she placed her trust in people over and over she was let down and hurt during her lifetime but she still had the endurance and grace to perservere and survive through it allThis book takes a long time to read and digest It feels like a character study for each of the three m

    A Single Swallow eBook ✓ A Single PDF or ´ eBook stockbag.info single epub, swallow free, A Single pdf, A Single Swallow EpubI received an ARC of this book through NetGalley I am providing an honest review voluntarilyThe premise of the book sounded great The bones of the story were good but there were definitely some things I didn't like about the bookTRIGGER WARNING bombing gore sexual assault and death of petsFirst and foremost the text was overly descriptive and and was heavily overburdened by information that was unrelated to the plot The descriptions were so incredibly detailed that it took me off topic and made it easy for the plot to get lost There was a lot of telling rather than showing leading to chapters that were excessively long and kind of boring The entire story is narrated through

    A Single Swallow eBook ✓ A Single PDF or ´ eBook stockbag.info single epub, swallow free, A Single pdf, A Single Swallow EpubThis book tells the story of a young woman named Ah Yan from the perspective of three different men in China who knew her during World War II It’s told by their ghosts almost in conversation with each other The writing is at times really engaging namely the later quarter of the book The middle drags on a bit because we know much of the story from the start The author withheld plot information from the reader to keep us interested and this slowed the pace of the book you jump to a different perspective just as you are about to reach the answer essentially rebooting the story I also found the depiction of Ah Yan and the trials she went through too serving toward the men She’s literally silenced for chapters of the text and much of her agency is taken away Her life felt like a catalyst for the men in the story and as their property almost as we don’t get her perspective at all There’s also pedophilia suggested sexual assault
