characters ☆ The Conjure Man è PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free After Thaddeus Jacobs the adopted son of a traveling preacher is found naked with a young woman he is expelled from the only family he has ever known Guided by visions and a mysterious voice he makes his way to a coastal South Carolina island where he struggles to make his peace with God and himself in spit. The Conjure Man is a very original book That is one of the first things that struck me when I began reading it It deals with the subjects of religion superstition story telling magic myths dreams all woven together in spellbinding prose that pulls you in and takes you away to The Island where the action in the book takes place The descriptive narrative is written in such a way that the reader can almost see everything that is going on and become party to the events taking place The reader is taken on a wondrous mysticalmythical journey The tale is told from the perspective of two main characters Kilby a teenager and Thaddeus an old man We learn about Thaddeus s tragic life through flashbacks He has become a man feared by the community on the island where he lives alone in a cabin believed by the islanders to be the devil himself Kilby reluctantly becomes caught up in Thaddeus s life When these two characters meet they become intertwined connected in a way that changes both of their lives for everThe part of the novel told from Kilby s perspective is written in slang a pattern of speaking common to the south the novel being set in an island off the coast of South Carolina Surprisingly the language is easy to follow and the prose has a repetitive rhythm which flows almost like it is poetic when Kilby is telling his story The story told in this unusual way adds a depth and an element of reality so it is almost as if the character is brought to life on the page and is telling his tale directly to the readerBetween each of the separate parts of the book there is a fablemythical tale about an alligator which only adds to the enchanting character of the novelThis is the sort of book that can be enjoyed again and again as there is so much action taking place so many different scenes and characters I am sure that upon a second and even third reading the reader would discover nuances that they had missed I was lucky enough to receive a pre publication pdf copy from the author I enjoyed the book so much that I ll be saving up to buy a hardback edition This is the sort of book that should be on everyone s bookshelf
