Cold Mountain Book Blog #4

Cold Mountain - Charles Frazier

    The book has progressed and Inman has just been through being caught by military force that has been looking for him. He and Veasey are marched across the country back along where they had already ventured. Finally after a long time of walking, the gaurds decided to shoot the men. The men were shot and buried in shallow graves. Inman escapes the shooting from the gaurds with a slight head wound and Veasey died. The view of the story then goes back to Ada. She works very hard and tries to get closer with nature while at it. This story became very sad when the men were shot and barely buried, and I am excited to see more of how Ada is adapting to her life and trying to find peace within herself and nature.

A Yellow Raft in Blue Water: Thoughts(Book Blog #2)

The novel A Yellow Raft in Blue Water is a very heart grabbing book thus far into the read. Personally having a good relationship with my birth-giver is very important, my mom and i are very close and have a very strong loving bond. It makes me very sad to see Rayona, the main character deserted by her mother both at her Aunts house and when she visited the hospital. Christine, Rayona's mother, likes to get drunk and party other than caring for her family. Having little to no parental supervision in life can be very bad for the future of kids, they should be taught rights from wrongs and learn valuable knowledge about ho to grow up. Instead of being taught good things her mother is a very bad influence on her. Christine sees no where else to go when Aunt Ida refuses to let her stay and she abandons her daughter. Christine literally ran away with a stranger from her daughter, i could not even fathom being stranded in the middle of Montana by my mom and it makes me very sad. This book is very emotional and is a fairly good read so far.

English3H-5 Cold Mountain Review #1

I have just recently started the novel Cold Mountain written by Charles Frazier. So far this book is pretty good, it stars out with a man named Inman who has recently been injured in the back of his neck in war. He was taken to a hospital hith horrible conditions and doesnt want to return. Inman dreams of a place that his mind can be free and decides that the place should be cold mountain which is a mountain located near him. "Cold Mountain nevertheless soared in his mind as a place where all his scattered forces might gather"(Frazier Pg.17). He thinks of the mountain as a better place and otherworldly. So far this novel really makes me think and is very interesting.
