    Kindle Paula McLain #210; Circling the Sun PDFEPUB #182; Circling the PDFEPUB ² #210; circling mobile, Circling the free, Circling the Sun KindlePaula McLain's latest novel narrating the life and times of pioneering aviator and horse racer Beryl Markham is labeled as historical fiction that transports readers to colonial Kenya in the 1920s With that kind of a sales pitch you'd expect at least a halfway realistic portrait of the manners and social conditions of the times with than one token black character thrown in It is after all a novel set in Africa based on a historical figure Yet Circling the Sun is all about white colonialists and their self enclosed world on their plantations in the East African Protectorate where the natives are hardly than an exotic backdrop for the adventures and love affairs of a British floozy As somebody who considers Proust a page turner I cannot fault a book for portraying a select social circle and ignoring unsavory realities However if you want to put on your rosy glasses and paint nostal

    Kindle Paula McLain #210; Circling the Sun PDFEPUB #182; Circling the PDFEPUB ² #210; circling mobile, Circling the free, Circling the Sun KindleBeryl Markham is a flawed character certainly probably as flawed as the real person that this fictional autobiography is based on and as flawed as most of us but I could not find a flaw in the way this story was told The writing from the first sentence describing her plane the one she flew across the Atlantic is mesmerizing and then moves to the unbelievable descriptions when she first arrived in Kenya as a little girl and in the days beyond simply beautiful writing I read an advanced copy and the publisher at the beginning requests that you not

    Kindle Paula McLain #210; Circling the Sun PDFEPUB #182; Circling the PDFEPUB ² #210; circling mobile, Circling the free, Circling the Sun KindleThe luscious writing of this novel will transport you to the dry rolling hills of Kenya and quench your thirst after a long drought It is an exquisite story of Beryl Markham who grew up on the plains of Africa to become a legendary 1st woman horse trainer and later a pilot It's her path to self discovery through the disastrous relationships and love entanglements that define whom she became A wild and adventurous spirit much like the horses she worked to tame I loved her character her passion her honesty and her courage Truly a time when such feminism was resisted and discouragedI adore novels set in Africa and during th

    Kindle Paula McLain #210; Circling the Sun PDFEPUB #182; Circling the PDFEPUB ² #210; circling mobile, Circling the free, Circling the Sun KindlePaula McLain’s writing is so vivid and cinematic I felt I was right in the story rather than reading it In this book a fictional biography of Beryl Markham I could play alongside Beryl and her young companions be involved in training horses alongside Beryl and fly the Atlantic from England to the East coast of North America I could adventure on safaris rub elbows with royalty and experience the anguish and joys of love marriages and lovers I could feel a yearning for Africa her vast spaces Technicolor sunsets and stars that seemed like “they wanted to perch on my shoulders”Beryl Markham led an extraordinary life and Paula McLain’s writing captures it all serving it with the flourish of a master chef This book is a beautiful banquet of descriptions and characters that are so real you can savour them on your tongue long after the banquet is overThis is a banquet you will not want to miss as it ignites all your sense

    Kindle Paula McLain #210; Circling the Sun PDFEPUB #182; Circling the PDFEPUB ² #210; circling mobile, Circling the free, Circling the Sun KindleI haven't given my rare 5 star rating to a book in a long time but I am giving Circling the Sun 5 stars without any hesitation Paula McLain's fictionalization of the early part of Beryl Markham's life completely engrossed me I knew nothing about Beryl Markham before reading Circling the Sun but as told by McLaim she is a fascinating woman who grew up very unconventionally in early 20th century Kenya as the white daughter of a horse ranch owner It is a great story and the depiction of Beryl is fabulous It is such a risky venture to write a fictional account of a real historical figure There is so much room for over romanticizing for imposing contemporary sensibilities on the historical figure or for mechanically drowning readers in too much historical detail I had some reservations about McLain's depiction of Hemingway's first wife Hadley Richardson in The Paris Wife but hats off to MacLain for her depiction of Beryl Who knows if it's an accurate depi
