    Epub The Gustav Sonata eBook ✓ The Gustav PDF/EPUB or ä akvarieprofilen.co ä gustav epub, sonata epub, The Gustav pdf, The Gustav Sonata PDFThis is only the third novel by Rose Tremain that I’ve read but I’m already tempted to add her name to my short list of favorite writers One of the things that I most admire about her as an author is her chameleon like ability to change her colors with every novel she writes She never repeats herself but she always has a great story to tell and she always tells it well I think my favorite of the three I’ve read so far is still Trespass a modern Gothic set in a crumbling manor in the French countryside but this one is a close second Like a piano sonata The Gustav Sonata is cleverly composed in three sections with different key shifts and recurring motifs eg cherry trees in flower geraniums a purple lipstick silkworms the name “Hans” a tambourine The first section is set just after the end of WWII and introduces the major spine of the story a lifelong friendship between two boys named Gustav and Anton that begins on their first day of kindergarten In this section the rea

A stroy of two boys growing up in a a small town in Switzerland just after the World War II Gustav' s life is a lonely one until he meets Anton and a life long friendship develops I loved their first part of this novel as the characters and plot were beautifully set and I had high hopes for this book but the second part of the story fell fl
