The Last Runaway

Onal foray into the American past in The Last Runaway bringing to life the Underground Railroad and. This novel was enjoyable enough However reading it gives one a sensation of floating atop the story nothing pulls a person in or attaches itself to the reader s emotions The story is just too light The first hundred pages are largely given over to uilting patterns and sewing techniues which is fine enough if one has a taste for such thorough narrations of domestiue intricacies but a reader choosing this book based on the cover description would be disappointed It leaves one to believe that it is centred around the Underground Railroad leaves one to expect a drama of true trials and interpersonal struggles as no tale concerning such a matter could be or was otherwise especially to the people immediately concerned However excluding the last scene the collection of scarce small events involving black runaways throughout this novel most definately purposes as a side story and futher each event in and of itself also carries a feeling of being small The majority of text is dedicated to uilting as already mentioned and the dynamics of uaker communities the back description should reflect this Although the main character Honor Bright does go through a personal struggle excited by her and her new family s differing views including that of dealing with runaways but certainly not the most prominent dissimilitude the reader once again feels left floating atop never really seeing into the character The reader never really knows Honor Bright and some times she surprisingly demostrates understanding then one would expect from her hollow bland character where did this come fromThe afforementioned aside this book is a nice light read that can remove one from the present without demanding emotional or intellectual strain of any kindThe scenic descriptions of this novel are on par Chevalier can effectively paint a descriptive picture in few words she knows just what can be left out what the reader can fill in himself and does not drag the book down by counting off the leaves on trees Prehaps my rating would be higher if the cover description properly described the novel it is a very airy book about a uaker s life in America at the time of slavery though slavery is far from its focal point and do not forget to mention the uilting uilting uilting I was disappointed because I was mislead I was expecting Underground Railroad and instead got uilting uaker
