Author: Alice Hoffman
I read this book because it was the only interesting one I had.
Blackbird house is a story that spans for about 200 hundred years, about the families living in a house in Massachusetts called Blackbird House.
Once Coral Hadley loses her sons and husband at sea, tragedy strikes all the next generation of inhabitants of that house. And a bird witnesses all those tragedies.
Each chapter in the book tells the story of the families living in that house. I loved the stories and thought they were very imaginative and delightful. Alice Hoffman is a very good storyteller.
I think this book is similar to One Hundred Years of Solitude, since it does not have a particular plot but it consists of many happenings. In contrast to One Hundred Years of Solitude, it is much shorter.
However, the end didn’t make any sense to me and I didn’t enjoy how it ended.
Blackbird House is a good, short read that will lighten you up.
My rating: 6/10
