book review, Elizabeth Jane Howard, The Cazalet Chronicles, The Light Years, Your email address will not be published. When I first saw the Goodreads Giveaways listing for. The Light Years is the first in a five-part sage written about the Cazalet family.
I used to never read them.
Honestly, from the moment I first read the premise of this book I was a little enthralled.
The main story centers on Steele MacKaye (Rocco Sisto), a real-life 19th-century impresario who has designed and, at play’s start, is building “The Spectatorium,” a 12,000-seat theater of epic proportions, the biggest theater in the world with the latest in state-of-the-art stagecraft in this new age of electricity.
Hisako Sasaki, an unauthorized child on the planet Gaul, is contracted to marry the Trader Adem Sadiq before she’s even born. All opinions, however, are my own.***. Greene has a way with humanity.
I found the characters immediately compelling from the opening pages - Hisako and Adem’s multifaceted personalities kept me engaged as a reader to find out how it all turns out for them. I sorta feel blasé about the unresolved nature of the conclusion of the tale.
If you love reading as much as our colleagues, then your summer fun itinerary will most likely include books. .
I had to remind myself periodically that he was clearly alive to write the memoir, walking away from disaster time and again. There are unforgettable and horrifying scenes here in this spare and sombre memoir of this experience of the hanging of a child, of his first farewell with his father who leaves him an inheritance of a knife and a spoon, and of his last goodbye at Buchenwald his father's corpse is already cold let alone the long months of survival under unconscionable conditions.

Greene does a great job building the characters during their changes in relative time, taking the effort to build their layers and growth step by step. Thankful I ended up really enjoying this overall!
Growing up in a strict Roman Catholic family in New Jersey, the author felt both trapped and adrift as a child, a feeling exacerbated by his neglectful mother and alcoholic father, who was “a dark planet, exerting only vague astrological influence on his offspring.” Introduced to drugs, especially LSD, early on by his loving hippie sister, Donna, Rush continued to chafe under his suburban adolescence before finally setting out on a remarkable journey into the counterculture and across America, from his hometown to the wilderness of the Southwest.

He also suffered a near overdose. I think the ways in which culture was shown to have changed and morphed was really interesting and realistic, and I was impressed with a lot of the commentary that happened throughout and definitely enjoyed that. Welcome back. How would space travelers relate to the planet-bound? The Light Years is an engaging memoir about the author's life. I like to finish what I start.

This covers the gamet of topic, sexuality, religion and drugs.
This is a person with some truly wild experiences.
Along the way, while struggling with significant substance abuse (“sometimes I’d shoot up with…customers who craved a speechless high, who wanted to grow dim with me, become sputtering candles in the dark”) and grappling with his sexuality, Rush continued to draw, an artistic spark that took years to ignite into a career.

Though the narrative ends on a slight uptick, the author refreshingly avoids tying his story up with a pretty bow, and readers will wish for more from this talented writer.

| Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Chris Rush is now an established artist but he used to be a drugged out teenage drifter. The former first lady opens up about her early life, her journey to the White House, and the eight history-making years that followed. This was an amazing voyage into the past of a person who somehow survived a very dysfunctional family life, more psychedelic drugs than Tim Leary and a criminal past that defies imagination. I do not know if this is a stand alone novel or one that is the start of a series, but I am satisfied with the experience either way. ;
