Summary Î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ☆ Lisa Van Allen The Night Garden Read & Download ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Lisa Van Allen ☆ 5 Read Nestled in the bucolic town of Green Valley in upstate New York the Pennywort farm appears ordinary yet at its center lies something remarkable a wild maze of colorful gardens that reaches beyond the imagination Local legend says that a visitor can gain answers to life’s most difficult problems. 15 stars Review to come closer to the release date as reuired Release Date October 7th Arc provided by Ballantine Books through NetgalleyIt appears that I have been luckyUp until this book I had never considered the fine line in which magical realism authors have to stay in in order for things to work The phrases used that should be magical instead of cheesy Part of Olivia s particular allure was how mysterious she seemed how kind hearted yet distant how nurturing but withholding how resistant to summary of any kind Up until this story I had never read such a poor attempt at this genreI wasn t able to read this as magical realism for me this is a mishmash of soap opera romance with some silly metaphors performed by lacklustre characters Cats had begun taking dust baths like birds and birds began lazing on porch stairs like cats Well that or cats could just open their big mouths to provide a nice cool shade for the birdsDescriptions should be used to help the story be told They should not be used to fill pages per seAnd that s what I feel happened hereI don t want to read a book mainly filled with descriptions in which the characters don t have anything in them besides some extremely deranged dramaLong long boring descriptions that surpassed the clich d and went full into cheesy department The birds in the valley began to sing such intricate and virtuosic songs that scientists with recorders and binoculars started to come from miles around enraptured by avian talent Two words that probably should never ever be used togetherAvian Talent First she knew that she still wanted him in the same old way on a level that was elemental and animal and chemical and utterly miserable and thrilling and miserable again Yes there is uite a number of adjectives that can be used in a textBut just because you can use them doesn t mean you should use them all at onceFor me this overuse of adjectives doesn t make a sentence stronger it makes it weaker because the whole thing is just too verboseWhy can t you people just save a few treesIf you can say something in a single page why use ten freaking pages he could see that she was wearing a pale cotton dress that made her look as sweet and cool as an ice cream cone Ice cream cone ReallyI can t evenThen there s this sense of white book for white people because of phrases like this If people shunned them because his family had been white and Jewish and hers was neither of those things they were too much in love to notice or care Neither of those thingsMaybe its just me But this particular phrasing rubs me the wrong waySo what colour was she Blue Pink BlackWhat s the problem with using the actual wordThen it has that slight sermonish thing about God It was only by the Grace of God that they had managed not to have sex Snorts This was supposed to have that thwarted big romance vibe But instead what I got was Two kids that knew each other growing up and who then decided to experiment their words making outThey liked it so much so of course they had to be in love First and only love For her at least poor woman The romance between a strong good woman and a kind courageous manThen due to the amount of information given we get things like these In one moment Olivia s hair is peach coloured and in the night it is the colour of wineNoI don t care which time of the day it is Colour pigments aren t rainbowsAs a redhead myself that doesn t happen unless you change hair colour multiple times a day DON TLess is More Don t overcomplicate things Then this is not appropriate reading material to scientists because this would probably give them an apoplexyWe have a character who has to be in constant contact with poisonous plants because if she doesn t she will dieHow WhyNo one knows for sure it appears to involve some gross parental neglect but besides thatNothingNow this is where the magical realism would enter if this had been properly developedThis setting could work I am thinking about Alice Hoffman s beautifully done Ice ueen in which the characters have some different health conditions But unfortunately this one was so poorly done that I didn t buy this for a instance Oh and the last part with the monstrous vines and all thatThat should be in a fantasy book not a magical realism oneIt was way over the top I am aware that this review borders the angry and you know what Yes it does because people keep comparing this to Alice Hoffman and Sarah Addison Allen and that couldn t be further away from the truth and that leaves me upsetAlice Hoffman and Sarah Addison Allen books are about connections friends family loversThis one is mainly a convoluted romance and I didn t even feel all that love between themThen there s the story of Olivia and her father but the thing is so ridiculous that I am not even going to bother with itHere we don t have strong women s relationships We have our main character Olivia that is all that is good and kind and perfect and basically the perfect woman and then we have the other ones Who aren tI don t think I will be reading any books by this author

This book had such potential but it just fell flat There I said itOlivia is poisonous to people and has distanced herself purposefully and absolutely That is until her old flame Sam comes back into the picture and is determined to figure out a cure for her touch issues All of that being said she also keeps a barn full of lost and misunderstood women who look for answers but provides little to no comfort to them Her father is a hermit living in a ravine by himself and the entire thing is just a bit strangeI came to hate the neighbors and the boarders There are always those people that cannot keep to themselves and leave people alone who wish to be left alone A nosy and self righteous neighbor is one of the worst things that a person can be because they assume that their ways are the best and everybody else is wrong People like that make my skin crawl I d rather live next to a frat houseMei was eually bad as a supporting character Rude selfish and childish She was infuriating to read and if I was Olivia I would have kicked her out She was supposedly looking for answers but what it seemed like to me was that she was looking for a handout There were no redeeming ualities to herWhat I am trying to say is that the horrible supporting characters were such foils to the perfect and virtuous main characters that it made me mad Apparently everybody else in this little valley were severely flawed where Olivia and Sam were notThe writing style was also incredibly slow It dragged on This was not a long book but it still took me a decent amount of time to get through it It mimicked the arduously slow summer that was occurring in the book and while that might have been intentional it was just as painful to experience But than anything the thing that annoyed me most was the basic ignorance of basic botany I know this is supposed to be a magical garden but there is certain stuff that cannot be ignored Like identifying mushrooms using spore tests instead of just looking at them Or the fact that the botanist doesn t realize that there are some people that don t have reactions to poison ivy It seemed like easy knowledge was ignored for the sake of a story and that always ticks me offI keep saying this in my reviews It could have been awesome But it wasn t
