    One thought on “Dogside Story”

    1. Like a visit to a foreign land for me Not as a tourist, but of a voyeur which I think is intentional in the writing I wanted to know about New Zealand, and did pick up some cultural knowledge and a few words of Te Reo mostly though the idea of the same age cousin as your closest relative has stayed with me, and I thank her for that In the year or since I have read it, snippets have come back to me walking through the Auckland Museum or thinking about my own same age cousin, or those of my son [...]

    2. I m planning on teaching Dogside in my Pac Lit course in the Winter I read it looking to pick up the themes of the course the ocean, the canoe, the use of narratives and found myself lost in the rhythm of speech that she uses so well Her use of these rhythms was akin to yoga for my own writing she limbered me up, and now I m back at my own work again Just listening to her writing is pleasure enough.

    3. An interesting look at the Maori culture and a nice companion while on recent travels in New Zealand My recommendation is neutral because while I found the story quite interesting, I had a hard time deciphering the wording and phrasing The choice of staying true I assume to the Maori vernacular was probably a great decision for reality, but definitely hindered my ability to follow the story.

    4. Really good A bit challenging to follow at times a few parts felt kind of Faulkner esque Grace gives the reader a sense of modern day Maori culture Especially interesting are the connections with global tourism and with Maori diaspora.

    5. Lonely planet New Zealand recommendation.The plot wasn t engaging to me, but the Maori society poverty was striking.

    6. Een boek over een Maori gemeenschapDit boek speelt zich af in een echt bestaande Maori gemeenschap in Nieuw Zeeland De auteur woont zelf in Nieuw Zeeland en is zelf een Maori Bovendien heeft ze als documentatie een studie een thesis, een proefschrift, ik weet het niet meer precies gebruikt die over deze gemeenschap was gemaakt.Het boek kent twee verhaallijnen, een familiekwestie en een gemeenschapszaak Aan de hand daarvan leren we de Maori gemeenschap kennen in deze tijden, hun gebruiken en hun [...]

    7. This was a challenging and rewarding book After a deceptively mythic opening, Grace plunges deep into the minds of several characters in a small NZ seaside community I was amazed at how closely she held the narrative voice to the characters it was an incredible feat of writing that left me feeling every bit of the characters hurt and humor I often had to read sections three or four times to understand what was happening Grace makes no allowances for an outsider s lack of knowledge about Maori cu [...]

    8. I didn t start enjoying the book until about a fifth of the way in I know grace was portraying the many voices at the beginning but found the execution clunky and laborious once the genealogy was established and things started to fall in place I enjoyed it a lot I still often found it over laboured so tended to skim read in places but I enjoyed the story line, the look into a small east coast Maori community in its raw form imagery was fantastic and pleased I read it.

    9. I m a huge fan of Patricia Grace, and read this one years ago it s time to get it off the shelf and reread it as i remember it as one of her best.Because her books are so rooted in New Zealand, other readers might miss the intent of some cultural references but they ll be rewarded so richly by reading her An exquisite writer not be missed

    10. I ll have to give this a try another time I found the content too distressing, the number of characters too large, the Maori culture and language so pervasive that I was often confused about who and what I was getting closer to sorting it all outter almost 100 pagesbut decided not now Won the Kiriyami prize for Pacific rim fiction.

    11. This book hooked me from the very first paragraph and was overall a good read except for some funky sketchy confusing chapters 3 4 of the way into the story Strong, memorable, complex characters and I loved the descriptions of culture clashes over child protection issues.

    12. For somebody who knows a bit about Maori culture, this would probably be a great book However, I didn t know enough to follow it, despite really wanting to learn about the culture and New Zealand in general Sadly, I gave up reading

    13. A bit challenging to follow at times, especially at the beginning, but worth persevering with An interesting and moving portrait of a very tight knit community dealing with secrets, jealousy and the year 2000 celebrations I particularly loved the descriptions of the natural environment.
