    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoNote I'm not sure if I truly grasped the themes Lara Santoro was trying to convey in The Boy but I will do my best to share what I took away from my reading experience At it's core I felt this story was dark but realistic nonetheless The Boy offers a look at motherhood in all it's boredom warranted eyerolls and the death of adult independence Themes that were addressedchallenged in my opinion include social normsexpectations about parenting style the midlife crises that women are not allowed to have the stereotypical roles and allowances or lack thereof for each gender in families the personal identity that is forgotten or lost when children enter the euation the decision to have children or not to the degrees of imperfection we all possess and the presence of dark thoughts in the minds of some parents when there is no respite from their tyrant of a child The writing style in The Boy felt very minimalistic and repetitious and I think this

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoFirst of all let me just stress this point I did not like the main characterStill the way the author manically forced me in the direction of utter hate toward this character’s choices made a hell of an unattractive motive I am not a child I am a grown woman who understands life love and family I have a wonderful mother that would have made the world turn in a different direction if I willed it so In other words I understand the importance of motherhood I understand the obligations I understand the privilegeWhat I don’t understand is

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoI want to blame it on my sleepy brain because I got lost somewhere in the book And not the good way lost the bad one where you have no idea what the author wants to say or if she has something to say or what is happening to the characters The Boy doesn't have a big role to the story The babysitterhousekeeperwhatever is in a bigger part of the book I will be damned if he said 10 lines in the book The book focuses on the daughter mother relationship than the Jack Anne one Also why doesn't she say the names of Jack and Eva's father Its weird I felt unsatisfied as I finished the book and a little disappointed

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoUghProvocative headlong and utterly compelling THE BOY is the story of a woman on the edge torn between love and compulsion desire and duty It is exactly not this It is the opposite So boring and all the sexy parts are just skipped over Also the lady who reads out the audiobook was not the best She gets a 25 Her male voices are horrible and she lacked so much emotion in all of the readingSeriously Do not waste your time

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoThe pendulum has swung the other way At the height of the feminist movement women who only wanted to stay at home and raise their children were ridiculed; they were abettors of the patriarchal system living only half lives We who were girls during the late 60s and 70s were told we could do anything and have everything We could be not just teachers and nurses but astronauts doctors lawyers and journalists We could be mothers too as long as that role took second billing to our careers

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoThere is so much to appreciate in The Boy rich dialogue witty humor and the way the seasons and the landscape are woven into the fabric of the story line The Boy transported me to New Mexico to clear air mountains sensuality the Rio Grande wide open spaces a vast sky and deep emotion Santoro skillfully reveals the fierce love that is ever present

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoBrutally honest I guess Sexually riveting not so much A bit disorganized in its format of the story itself YES A mother who left her child with a nanny not because she had to work but because she wanted to get away from her kid because she couldn't handle her infant crying any As honest as that was it wasn't enough to get me to enjoy the rest of the book From the beginning it jumped back and forth between the past and the present so many times that I felt dizzy and couldn't remember what year in the story I was It continued like that for the first 80 pages and that is what completely turned me off from the idea of even finishing the book As unusually rare it is for me to give a book a bad rating or review I honestly could not give this book a good one

    READ ¸ The Boy By Lara Santoro The Boy By Lara SantoThis really isn't a novel about 'the boy' but he's a catalyst for Anna to reflect and change or not change Good mommy Bad mommy You make the call but she certainly is an unlikable character The daughter in this story acts as the adult in this motherdaughter relationship and the ending was perfectI like stories where you can hardly keep your eyes open as the trains are about to collide at a high rate of speed
