E strips back the language and makes it very stark Hulme herself is very clear about why she did this to address an issue in New Zealand Hulme has stated that violence towards children was a pervasive social problem in New Zealand among Maoris and Pakeha and she had written the bone people in part to draw attention to it Hulme gives the reader nowhere to go with this Joe by being violent loses his Maori language and sides with the Pakeha the western colonizers His attempt to destroy Simon seems linked to the destruction of Maori culture His redemption is linked the western colonizers His attempt to destroy Simon seems linked to the destruction of Maori culture His redemption is linked his rediscovery of his roots and culture I only ound this partially convincing male violence is male violence wherever it is American Capitalism The Concept of Countervailing Power foundI must admit that I did struggle with some aspects of the ending but the writing and language is captivating An original personal and visceral novel whichor me is the kind of book that justifies the existence of the Booker Prize The surface story is about the interactions between three difficult and damaged people but there is a lot to it than that plenty of Maori culture mythology and language Kaleb Saison I Kaleb fortunately most of the latter is translated in the glossary and a mixture ofirst and third person narrative voices including uite a lot of poetry That may sound difficult but the core story is uite gripping though I must admit that I didn t try to Le Moyen Age, une imposture follow everything Hulme s introduction says that it started as a short story but theinished novel is much than thatAt the centre of the story is Kerewin Holmes whose character must be at least slightly autobiographical She is an artist of mixed European and Maori heritage estranged L'incroyable histoire de Wheeler Burden from heramily who leads a self sufficient and independent life in a tower she has built Chasing Alpha for herself on the New Zealand coast Her life is disturbed when sheinds a mute boy with an injured Pige : Mmoires d'une anorexique foot in her tower The boy is Simon or Haimona who turns out to be a survivor of a shipwreck in which his parents are believed to have died The third character is Joe whoound Simon and adopted him with his now dead wife Both Joe and Kerewin are heavy drinkers The story concerns their interactions conflicts and culture clashesThe story touches on some difficult themes particularly Joe s relationship with Simon which mixes extreme physical violence with a love that Simon needs than anything else Kerewin is asexual and dislikes physical contact she is also L'Ordre du dragon: Dragon Master, T2 (Fantasy) fiercely independent Part of the story involves the mystery of Simon s backgroundor example it is known that he already bore the scars of physical abuse before his adoption I won t say too much about the plot I m not sure I entirely believed the happy ending but it occupies such a small part of the book that it almost eels like an afterthoughtSo small part of the book that IT ALMOST FEELS LIKE AN AFTERTHOUGHTSO almost Linda Craig and the Palomino Mystery feels like an afterthoughtSo interesting book a littlelawed but probably very memorable I don t know why it took me so long to get round to reading it but I would certainly recommend it. Rness and brutality Out of this unorthodox trinity Keri Hulme has created what is at once a mystery a love story and an ambitious exploration of the zone where indigenous and European New Zealand meet clash and sometimes merge Winner of both a Booker Prize and Pegasus Prize or Literature The Bone People is a work of unfettered wordplay and mesmerizing emotional complexit. ,
