    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without PortfolioSorry Mr Winter but your sloppy writing just doesn't cut it You may have had a story to tell certainly the central premise of a civilian contractor getting in the middle of a fatal attack in Afghanistan is timely enough; and that combined with a man disappointed in love finding a new reason to go on could have developed into a compelling narrative Your settings also had great promise the austere beauty of Newfoundland the unhealthy dangerous environment of Afghanistan the gritty non stop work routine of Fort McMurray Henry could have developed into a central character that I as a reader would come to care about But none of that happened Your haphazard thought stream meaningless phrases that didn't go anywhere or have anything to do with the topic or situation at hand never mind a total disregard for coherent punctuation all that got in the wa

    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without Portfolioright upfront i should probably acknowledge that i have a complete soft spot for literature about newfoundland and for newfoundland writers and i fairly adore michael winter happily this novel was a great read for me minister without portfolio among many things presents an intriguing concept each of us has an orbit of 100 people people to whom we have responsibilities when we first meet henry hayward his life is not going well and as the story continues woes pile upon woes as hayward works through his traumas and guilt while rebuilding a century old shack that lacks power and water he regroups and tries to remake his life but hayward is also working out his 100 people and what he's doing for them and if this book w

    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without PortfolioWhat a wonderful way to finish my reading year There are so many lines in this book that just stopped me in my tracks made me stop reading to marvel Yes that is exactly how it is Clarity that almost hurtsIt's a book about many things but it's mostly about a person growing up and learning to live in a world that is often hard and mean And the way he grows up is by stepping into his responsibilities toward other people tripping and falling making horrendous mistakes and then learning from them It's full of action and events but the heart of the story is subtle still as a pond Minister Without Portfolio is a great delicious rea

    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without PortfolioI read the first 70 pages then skimmed the middle of the book and read the end There is no dialogue just spoken sentences amongst the rest of the prose The main event happens on page 45 and then it's just characters searching for redemption being unfaithful and fixing a house Not my style of book at all Plus there are short choppy sentences that don't seem to make sense or move the story forward None of the characters were appealing It just all felt flat Not a Canada Reads winner in my humble opinion We'll see what the 2016 panel has to say

    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without PortfolioThis book has had mixed reviews and was the first book eliminated in the 2016 Canada Reads debates I had mixed feelings about it as I was reading it Certainly Henry had some bad breaks in life but he never seems to just take the bull by the horn and get on with life I could not get into the mood of the book in which I guessed the author had wanted to create empathy for Henry's lot in life Despite the rather unsympathetic protagonist the writing has at times a very lyrical uality so it is a fairly pleasant read The writer can succinctly describe the setting of the book and does not wane on and on with overly wordy descriptions but still set the reader into the place where the story is taking place

    characters Minister Without Portfolio ñ PDF eBook or Kindle ePUB Minister Without PortfolioI won this book and as such I feel obligated to review it I need to first clarify that as I am not Canadian and incredibly unfamiliar with Canadian military and Newfoundland I'm sure there were many things I simply culturally couldn't grasp or picture in my mind However I think I could have overcome all of that if the author could have made me care about a single character or relationship in the book Nothing feels real things are vague there are no uotation marks sometimes this is OK but this book has too many characters and Winter just could not pull it off and I was lost as to whether a character was remembering something or experiencing it first handThe whole premise of the book is that the main character Henry is so heartbroken about his girlfriend Nora breaking up with him that he trucks off to Afghanistan with his friends for civilian work for a year I know NOTHING about Nora what she looks like why he loved her why he is so devastated about their break up It's a blank slateHe
