Berlie Doherty: Dear Nobody



Epub Ebook Dear Nobody É Berlie Doherty – cafe1919.org

S reviewed at Ugghhh I really idn t like this book at all I thought this was a very realistic account of what might happen to a teenage couple when the girl gets pregnant At first I had trouble understanding why Helen Gym and Slimline did what sheid but it was clear at the end it was the right thing My only issue with it would be that it is so negative I ended up feeling sorry for just about everybody in the story including the older generations and the baby It would probably succeed in making teenagers take to avoid pregnancy but it would be a epressing read for any teenager who was already pregnant Berlie Doherty skill lies in writing What always amazes me is how beautiful a book can be written especially if it is short In this YA book which is about teenage pregnancy ocumented month by month I found the structure of this novel interesting as Chris was telling the story but it was interspersed with Helen s Dear Nobody letters I thought the two main characters were very well fleshed out As for the topic of teenage pregnancy I thought it was very well handled in this book However it Marginal Notes, Doubtful Statements did leave an unmistakable taste of Waterloo Road in my mouth That said I reallyid enjoy reading this The writing was so beautiful so I ll leave with a uote Late January The sort of The Clock Without a Face day that never really starts whenaylight hardly happens and night folds in by mid afternoon hushing everything back to sleep again This is a good story even if it Captives of the Private House doesn t have a fairytale ending Chris and Helen are both studying on high school It is their last year and they both have plans for the future Chris wants to study English Helen music They have sex and after just only that one time everything chances Helen gets sick and after several pregnancy tests she learns that she is pregnantThe news of Helen s pregnancy are shock to everyone especially to Helen She feels like she cannot speak to anyone about the situation She starts to write letters toear nobody to her unborn baby By these letters the reader gets to know what Helen really feels and how her love towards her baby Teaspoon and an Open Mind developsIecided to read this book as a part of the read a thon because it is pretty short I think the book is just a perfect lenght I am happy Doh. Ikhögskolan Hon behöver vara ensam och reda ut sina motstridiga känslor Visst tycker hon om Chris men hon är inte redo för för alltid ännu.

I had to read this for school and I think it is safe to say that otherwise I would ve never even heard of and A Celtic Miscellany definitely never read this book Reading this was very frustrating to me because the bookeals with a topic that is important and should be talked about and I agreed with that but I really idn t like the way it was one I Foxs Feud (Farthing Wood, disliked both main characters and I was pretty annoyed by the whole letter thing It was an okay read but I probably wouldn t have finished it if it hadn t been for school Read this book a couple of times as a teen Ion t really remember the story besides the basic synopsis but I remember that it had made me cry and think about unusual topics for me like unwanted teen pregnancies and how one shouldcould react to it Although a Puffin book because it is marketed as teenage fiction Dear Nobody is a lot grown up than much of the juvenile nonsense that passes for adult fiction these The Culture Code days The only reason I can see that it is pigeon holed as a teenage fiction is that the two main characters are 18 year olds nothing else The story is beautifully told the characters well rounded and their emotional life made real It tells of family inheritance and growing up There is an attention toetail in the story telling that places you there as a reader like the escription of the grandfather s bonfire and the toad followed by the imagery of the bits of privet that her grandfather tidies up looking like a bridal bouuet I love the way the novel has aged taking you back to a time when teenagers had to conduct romances in whispered voices from telephones in the hall or from public phone boxes None of you re Skyping and instant messaging back then I thought there was a bit of a missed opportunity to really tied the book to Sheffield particularly in the character of the grandfather who only lets slip and occasional ay and reckon and a single nowt It is a shame but perhaps it is not regarded as oing a book many favours in its marketability to tie it too closely to a region One small annoyance was the creeping in of errors in the Kindle version probably errors of setting up the e book file and not checking it properly Not what you expect from Penguin1 of 34 Sheffield novel. Det blir en chock för Helen när hon upptäcker att hon är med barn Vad ska hon göra Hon som just fått sitt efterlängtade stipendium till mus.
