    Kindle Grace McCleen ☆ The Land of Decoration PDF Ô The Land Kindle - ☆ land mobile, decoration free, The Land epub, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUBReason for Reading Very intriguing plot captured my interestThis is a tough book to review I loved parts of it and disliked other parts of it Mainly I adored the main character 10yo Judith in whose voice the narrative is written She is naive and not always a reliable narrator but we are given events from her point of view as she sees them happen I read the book very uickly over two days and had a hard time putting the book down Parts of it were just lovely other parts I heartily disagreed with As a Christian I don't feel the author is making a grand statement one way or the other about Christianity as a whole I do think she is using this powerful message of fatherdaughter relationship a mother's death a girl's bullying because of her religion to show

    Kindle Grace McCleen ☆ The Land of Decoration PDF Ô The Land Kindle - ☆ land mobile, decoration free, The Land epub, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUBThe Land of Decoration is a first novel told in the voice of a young girl who has been brought up as a member of a religious sect; Grace McCleen is a young writer who was herself brought up in a similar environment Of course most authors draw deeply on personal life experiences as they write not surprising since writing about events and circumstances you know is likely to be easier and realistic However sometimes the parallels between events and a novel and the author’s own life seem particularly close – Anthony Powell’s Dance to the Music of Time seuence being a good example – and perhaps that is also the case here Certainly the setting of the novel is completely convincing even if the events are at least par

    Kindle Grace McCleen ☆ The Land of Decoration PDF Ô The Land Kindle - ☆ land mobile, decoration free, The Land epub, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUBOne of my favourite books of last year was Among Others by Jo Walton in which a lonely teenage misfit struggles with her own self perceived at least ability to perform potentially harmful magic Grace McCleen's The Land of Decoration has a similar premise in some respects Narrator Judith who is bullied and ostracised at school and whose widowed father has brought her up as a membe

    Kindle Grace McCleen ☆ The Land of Decoration PDF Ô The Land Kindle - ☆ land mobile, decoration free, The Land epub, The Land of Decoration PDF/EPUB The Land of Decoration is a peculiar novel but peculiar in a good way I was so intrigued by the premise Judith is a ten year old girl who lives with her devoutly religious father in a small English village As members of a fundamentalist sect they warn their neighbours of the approaching Armageddon Motherless and bullied at school Judith seeks solace in her bedroom where she creates a miniature world she calls The Land of Decoration a phrase she takes from Ezekiel One afternoon Judith wonders if she makes it snow in her handmade little world she can prevent school from opening again on Monday And sure enough when she draws back her curtains the next day the real world outside her window is blanketed in white This is just the first of Judith's many miracles but with her new power comes trouble as her father's work colleagues come out on strike and the bullying at school intensifiesGrace McCleen says she was inspired by her own childhood in writing her debut novel She grew
