    PDF EPUB baienme î Ballroom Epub å ballroom free, Ballroom PDFIn Ballroom Alice Simpson has drawn real characters People with whom we can relate who we know maybe even who we are And then they are not Or they are even so The strength of Simpson’s story is that her people are not one dimensional Though they may appear so initially angles and complexities uickly emerge for good and bad The characters eventually exhibit almost against their will how truly dimensional and sometimes dark they and their private lives are The intimate moments behind closed doors are the most powerful segments of the bookThe occasions when the characters are in the ballroom any ballroom ready to dance is when they are most expectant buoyant lighthearted and resolute Once the evening ends missed opportunities become glaringly obvious and high hopes are revealed to be nothing than pipe dreamsThe reality of the real world beyond the ballroom doors beyond the costume of hair makeup exact shoes dress and suit and tie; beyond a look a touch the inclusion the e

    PDF EPUB baienme î Ballroom Epub å ballroom free, Ballroom PDFBALLROOMI loved this book and thought it was beautifully written Adjectives are especially descriptive and there is a rhythm to the writing that reflects dance couples gliding across a ballroom floor Both my husband and I grew up in an era when all our contemporaries knew how to dance; it was a social necessity I did have a little trouble keeping track of the characters and would have found dramatis personae helpful but I am really old many years past 65 so my memory freuently fails me nor did I have a chance to read the book within a short period of time I am surprised at the harsh criticism over the shallowness of the characters Wasn't it the author's intent to create light sketches in order to reflect the life of the ballroom along with a reminder of ballroom etiuette? Everybody who goes regularly to the ballroom does so to leave their problems and challenges at home and lose themselves in the joy of dancing Although it is natural to wonder about the people that they meet they

    PDF EPUB baienme î Ballroom Epub å ballroom free, Ballroom PDFDisclaimers I received a copy of this book from the publisher as part of a giveaway I am also a competitive ballroom dancer so the subject matter is of interest to me and I tend to scrutinize it pretty closely from a technical background I wanted to like it I really did The idea of Simpson's book of individuals from varying backgrounds intersecting at this rundown ballroom and connecting over the magic and beauty of dance sounded fantastic to me But somewhere between the topic idea and the book itself there was a major disconnect I c

    PDF EPUB baienme î Ballroom Epub å ballroom free, Ballroom PDFI received this book in exchange for an honest review and would like to thank both TLC Book Tours and Alice Simpson for the chance to read and review this bookWhen I initially read the synopsis and viewed the cover for Ballroom I was instantly intrigued I fell in love with the cover and was interested in reading a book with interconnected narratives I really enjoyed that the story is delivered to us through the interconnected stories I think this made the narrative feel like a dance with each character waltzing to the beat of their own music – the different perspectives pushing and pulling sliding and spinning and coming together at the end in pretty surprising waysI really liked this book I do wish there was a little description of the ballroom itself but I thought that the exploration of the character’s lives and their percepti
