And I had to tell them no it's not So I got stuck writing a paper on it go me And I can't I just can't be academic and objective because it hurts like a sonuvabitch So I'm writing it out in hopes that when I've spilled my soul out here I won't have any left and I can write that damn paperIf you don't know it go watch this movie trailer under

    Kindle Once Were Warriors ePUB ´ Once Were ePUB ´ ´ opel rallye.de ´ once ebok, were pdf, warriors pdf, Once Were kindle, Once Were Warriors KindleIt took a while to read this rather short book of fiction for two reasons First because it written in a dialect using the thoughts of characters damaged by hardships and violence alcohol and lost or lacking education And second because the subject matter was so tough it was hard to handle much in one sitting The story takes place in an urban New Zealand Maori community The family depicted is fathered by Jake Heke a fists always ready man whose prowess hinges on intimidation His medium is beer and his friends are a drunken lot of the same ilk The children of his family and seemingly the entire community are left to fend for themselves on the streets Heke’s wife Beth has a strain of white in her In her marriage to Jake she has also suc

    Kindle Once Were Warriors ePUB ´ Once Were ePUB ´ ´ opel rallye.de ´ once ebok, were pdf, warriors pdf, Once Were kindle, Once Were Warriors KindleI saw the film years ago and it is devastating And very accurate sadly This book is not cute People see NZ as beautiful but you can't live on landscapes NZ is also a world leader or close to it in so many things that we can't feel proud of youth suicide teenage pregnancy family violence especially to children Poverty breeds these things and there is plenty of that here Machismo is the way to go for many NZers; it is still seen as 'being strong' The men here remain inarticulate a generalisation of course which I think contributes; it's hard to deal with emotions if you have no way of expressing themThis story of the disintegration of a family that was already brutalised is painful to read how much painful must it be to live it and I know families like it who can be seen There are many who are less visible but just as toxic The events as they unfold in the story are ent

    Kindle Once Were Warriors ePUB ´ Once Were ePUB ´ ´ opel rallye.de ´ once ebok, were pdf, warriors pdf, Once Were kindle, Once Were Warriors KindleI'm actually on the fence I really liked the book as much as you can like a depressing book that has a fairly predictable plot because I do feel like it was written from a deep personal reflection the author is half Maori I believe? However I think the danger in these types of novels is if it is all you read about Maoris you think oh I know their story drunks addicts abusers and there you go you've categorized a whole racial group As long as you remember that this is fiction and also one perspective then I think it's a good if sad book Worth a read if you are going to NZ for the first time and are trying to get a non guide book introduction although I recommend reading another book about Maoris which I ha

    Kindle Once Were Warriors ePUB ´ Once Were ePUB ´ ´ opel rallye.de ´ once ebok, were pdf, warriors pdf, Once Were kindle, Once Were Warriors KindleOnce Were Warriors comes at you like a slap or likely a punch in the face The writing is harsh and certainly doesn't waste time with niceties but it's engaging and often surprisingly beautiful The characters are tragic living in the limbo of poverty addiction and abuse The story is shockingly heartbreakingly real One of the most striking moments for me came right at the beginning when Beth considers the lack of books in their home or the homes of any of her neighbours and friends This was such a contrast with my own childhood I couldn't stop thinking about it much the sam
