5.0 étoiles sur 5 More de Lint Magic 27 novembre 2012
Par Jack V. Johnson - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Charles de Lint's "Jack in the Green" returns us to his fictional town of Santo del Vado Viejo in the U.S. southwest. The story is of novella length, but is a quick and thoroughly enjoyable read. The characters are engaging and the plot is compelling, addressing themes of social and financial inequity, personal action, and of course, magic.

I've long been a huge fan of de Lint's work, so I'm excited to see him publishing his work via Triskell Press with the assistance of wife MaryAnn Harris. (MaryAnn is a talented artist in her own right, and created the cover for this novella.)

If you're still reading this, stop now, get "Jack in the Green," and start reading it instead! :)

`Jack in the Green' is a fantastic read, one that I really enjoyed. The story is a story filled with stories that all come together to make a complete and powerful tale. The story is about friends and the power of friendship, it is about man's responsibility to man, and it is about justice and injustice, the cost of standing tall and doing the right thing and it is about love and magic. Set in set in the fictional Southwestern desert city of Santo del Vado Viejo, the story unfolds in our present and addresses the issues faced by the majority of the people today, issues such as economic insecurity and helplessness in the face of corporate greed, political indifference, and rampant crime. If your political view leans a little too far to the right, be warned, you might find the underlying plot of the story not to your liking.

The principal character of the story is Maria, who is a `barrio' girl trying to make a living in the economically depressed community of Santo del Vado Viejo, while at the same time trying to stay alive in a town that is home to a gang of bikers. Into this, the author throws Luz, Maria's best friend and Luz's gang, which is headed up by Jack. Luz and Jack are robbing from the rich to give to the poor, because as Luz puts it, someone has to help and the people with power and money aren't going to do it.

Therefore, the underlying plot to this story is about living in our economic times. It asks what we can do about it, inferring that either we can take care of ourselves or we can reach out and deal with the bigger picture. By employing `Jack in the Green', the author shows that this is not a new situation. `Jack', amongst other incarnations is Robin Hood. It is Luz who calls Jack and his merry men to her, to aid in righting the wrongs brought on due to the economic situation faced by the poor of Santo del Vado Viejo, but it is Maria who sees that Luz's ways are not the best way. Maria knows that stealing from the rich and giving to the poor will solve nothing. It is Maria who realises that things need to change.

There is much more to this short story than the underlying plot suggests. The author shows you that friendship brings you power and that faith when strong enough can create miracles. He also shows you that there is a price for everything, but if you truly believe in what you are doing and if what you are doing is right, then the price, no matter what it is, is worth it.

The only problem that I had with this book was the voice of it. At first, I found the author's writing style to be different from what I have been used to in other short stories that he has written. I felt that there was a detachment to his story telling and that he was trying to give it a narrative feel that fitted the characters and the setting. Still as I read the book and watched the tale unfold, I warmed to the voice that the author gave it. I found that the detachment helped the reader identify with the bigger issues of the story.

Overall, I enjoyed this short story. As I've indicated, it is full of interweaving stories that make a whole. I found that I wanted to know more about Luz, in particular what she does after the book ends. I also wanted to know more about other characters mentioned in the book, like the local witch who taught Luz magic. Hopefully, these characters will return in future tales set in Santo del Vado Viejo.

This is a great story that I really enjoyed and I recommend it to anyone who loves the works of Charles de Lint, or to anyone interested in trying out his works for the first time. I think you will be pleased with what you find in it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great read from my favorite author! 4 janvier 2013

I'm biased and admit it--Charles de Lint's novels and short stories never fail to delight me and transport me to a magical place. Sometimes those places aren't so nice, some of the characters are dark--but always there's a hero/heroine who, despite all-too-human flaws, manages to prevail and come away stronger. There's always a message, but it's always gentle and subtly given and the characters are always believable--even the Otherworldly ones!

I am so captured by De Lints books. With his southwestern touch in magic it's captured my soul. Its allowed me to feel apart of the never world. One of my favorites is Forest in the Heart. I wish there would be a second book. I have all most all of De Lints books. Love all the characters he creates. It would be so cool if we could get a second book on Jack in the Green! Wishful thinking....and the book covers are great too.

Isn't it great that an author can publish a novella on Amazon, post a link on Facebook, and we readers can download and read it the same day?! I love all of Charles deLint's work and this story is no exception. A tale of social responsibility, sad realities, and wonder all wrapped together.
