Book ♡ Jassy ⚉ Nuiun.de

Jassy is one of my favorites and this thread and characters continue over several books. Another good readYou can depend on it Nora Lofts wrote so many good books She doesn t,like many novelists, provide a happy ending and tie everything up with a pretty pink ribbon Her characters have flaws and are therefore realistic I read Jassy years ago and found it just as enjoyable the second time Enjoy Book ♼ Jassy ⚆ She Was The Daughter Of A Preacher And A Gypsy A Strange And Elusive Child With Powers Of Prophecy, She Grew Into An Even Stranger Woman From Those Around Her She Inspired Love And Admiration Or Furious Hatred Nothing In Between And Somehow Jassy Could Transform Even Those Who Loved Her Into Her Enemies Barney Hatton, The Disposessed Heir Of Mortiboys, Loved Her But Not Enough Lindy, A Servant Girl Who Worked There, Loved Her Too Much Elizabeth Twysdale, Who Taught Jassy Her Lessons, Hated Her With Every Passing Day And Because Of The People Around Her, The People Who Loved Or Loathed Her, Jassy S Life Was Destined To Be One Of Passion And Anguish. After having picked up several disappointing frustrating books recently finally a novel with interesting characters and a well told story. This is a QUICK REVIEW of my thoughts on the book I thought Jassy was supposed to be very good book so I borrowed it from the library It turned out to be a lot older than I had thought it was and the language was theformal and ponderous kind you find in old books But it was the tone that really didn t sit well with me I started to suspect from fairly early on that things might not turn out idyllically and after reading 37 pages I decided to jump forward to a few different spots and This is a QUICK REVIEW of my thoughts on the book I thought Jassy was supposed to be very good book so I borrowed it from the library It turned out to be a lot older than I had thought it was and the language was theformal and ponderous kind you find in old books But it was the tone that really didn t sit well with me I started to suspect from fairly early on that things might not turn out idyllically and after reading 37 pages I decided to jump forward to a few different spots and see if it was worth the trouble of reading the whole thing It didn t seem to be so I relegated it to the back to the library pile The main trouble is I think it s supposed to be one of those literary fiction books which are generally very introspective and depressing, and usually don t have happy endings In other words, the complete opposite of what I like to read Is there a Happy Ending view spoiler I skipped to the end, and although I wasn t sure of what had happened up until that point, or in fact, who the characters I was reading about were, I don t classify a book where two women end up getting hanged as having a happy ending hide spoiler Content Rating Mature themes PG M I didn t read it all the way through but I think there are some mature themes and a general air of depression which makes this book highly unsuitable for children and probably completely uninteresting to teenagers There is talk of witches, madness, drunkards, adultery, etc Not my cup of tea at all.Romance Rating UnsureI started this book under the misapprehension it would be about the main character, Jassy, and no doubt involve a romance of some kind The story is divided up into four books each told by a different character, none of whom is Jassy herself, as far as I could work out I only got part way through the first book told by a boy in the village who describes her as being both ugly and beautiful and it seemed increasing unlikely that a romance element would emerge anytime soon I skimmed through the rest of the book randomly and didn t come across anything else promising so I decided not to finish it When it comes to period pieces and historical fiction, Norah Lofts is as good as anyone Jassy s story is told in 3 volumes, each by a different person, and links the periods in her life together Loft s wonderful writing style, great plot and character development., and very descriptive imagery gives Jassy the feel of reading Bronte or Thomas Hardy. This story is well crafted Lofts uses a unique device telling the life story of the title character from the first person POV of those who who interact with Jassy, but never from Jassy s POV I highly recommend this book.What I like so well about Lofts s style is how the reader is immersed in the time and place in the first page and the story moves right along clippety clop so that by the time you reach the last page you feel almost breathless. Still one of my favorite authors It never fails when I pick up one of her dusty old books in a used book store, I know I m going to be up until 3am many nights in a row Her characterization and ability to capture a time in history is exquisite. Jassy is one of the best Norah Lofts novels I ve yet to read and if you re in the mood for a really good gothic I think you ll like it too.To me, Jassy was the female version of Heathcliff her mother being a gypsy and it was never a good idea to mess with Heathcliff As Jassy is buffeted by life s travails she leaves a long trail of tears and heartbreak behind her Is this her fault or not Jassy has a mean streak that will brook no insult as she ruthlessly and easily destroys those that Jassy is one of the best Norah Lofts novels I ve yet to read and if you re in the mood for a really good gothic I think you ll like it too.To me, Jassy was the female version of Heathcliff her mother being a gypsy and it was never a good idea to mess with Heathcliff As Jassy is buffeted by life s travails she leaves a long trail of tears and heartbreak behind her Is this her fault or not Jassy has a mean streak that will brook no insult as she ruthlessly and easily destroys those that stand in her way of achieving happiness This should be a great book to read during the cold winter months.I m glad to see that Norah Lofts books are being reprinted for a new generation of readers Like Wuthering Heights and Heathcliff, I think Jassy will be remembered for many, many years This book was Amazing I never thought it could be possible to hate and love almost all the characters in a story Jassy is narrated by the most important characters who get to know the heroine in their own way They either hate her or love her I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HEAR THE STORY FROM JASSY S PERSPECTIVE THOUGH.This plot has everything love, friendship, jealousy, etc I couldn t put it down, not even to see what time it was This book is all about learning the ups and downs of huma This book was Amazing I never thought it could be possible to hate and love almost all the characters in a story Jassy is narrated by the most important characters who get to know the heroine in their own way They either hate her or love her I WOULD HAVE LOVED TO HEAR THE STORY FROM JASSY S PERSPECTIVE THOUGH.This plot has everything love, friendship, jealousy, etc I couldn t put it down, not even to see what time it was This book is all about learning the ups and downs of human nature How a person can sacrifice herself so much for others but still received only hatred and mistreatment in return There are some factors such as poverty and marriage that made this book eveninteresting for me to read.All I have to say left is that I thought the ending was one of the saddest endings I have ever read, but at the same time it was memorable and thought provoking I can t say it enough, this author manages to bring up the good and bad sides of the characters without making you detest them or totally love them.Este fue un gran libro lleno de personajes inolvidables que siempre viviran en mi memoria Me pude conectar con la historia desde que empece a leer el libro y me hizo recordar mis propias virtudes y defectos Aparte, la autora lidio con factores muy comunes que existen en el planeta como pobreza, trabajo y matrimonio Los personajes eran tridimensionales y siempre despues de cambiar de pagina me sorprendian con un lado nuevo de su personalidad
