    Read ã Cala Author Laura Legge 109 Cala Author Laura Leg Cala has an intriguing premise and I was initially willing to see where the author would take things Mostly atmosphere and not much action I read the first third and decided to leave it there as the book was not holding my attention and the writing style wasn't to my taste I could see some readers falling hard

    Read ã Cala Author Laura Legge 109 Cala Author Laura LegYou know those books wherein everything works perfectly within the context of the book but nothing really touches you Have you ever had that feeling I am sure you have had it at some point and with this book I got the same feeling“Fear had such a loud way of speaking Maybe all of these acts had been tender plucking the plant striking the flank and the violence had not in Muireall’s hands but in Euna’s mind”The novel starts with the island called Pullhair in Outer Hebrides and it is very very atmospheric and when you read it it’s almost as if you are there feeling every weird thing that Euna is feeling and that is one of the major plus points of the book if I am being honest Of course even that didn’t uite work out the way I had hoped forEuna hasn’t always lived at Cala she used to live in

    Read ã Cala Author Laura Legge 109 Cala Author Laura LegI'm immensely impressed by this little gem In her first novel the author offers up a beautiful and clear headed style in recounting a tale full of hardship and austerity as well as simple joys The tenderness of Cala is at once as present as its contradictions and hypocrisies The characters are alive and present while the book still draws in a lingering sense of wonder at times even surrealness perfectly placed in the Scottish highlands To me it was the little details that made the book such a special read The story just sings with attention to its finer points The book reveals and revolves around themes of how much care goes into community how much we depend on each other for our own needs to be met how protecting the boundaries of our own homes can go darkly astray for each of us Yet through it all characters really try for each other They

    Read ã Cala Author Laura Legge 109 Cala Author Laura LegFirstly as this is I believe Laura Legge's debut novel praise should be given to her for producing something that is a bit different and for a willingness to experiment in her prose characterisation and plot lines All to often now there is an inherent sameness that proliferates much of new fictional work so it was a refreshing change to come across something that had elements of originality and daring about it There is for instance the intermingling of Gaelic English and the Scottish dialect and the absence of speech marks It may not altogether succeed and there are in my opinion some issues regarding the veracity of the plot at times but the exuberance of the writing makes up for this Legge has created a world that straddles between the fam

    Read ã Cala Author Laura Legge 109 Cala Author Laura LegI know Cala might not be to everybody’s taste there are some uestionable morals and even uestionable main characters in this book but nevertheless I really enjoyed it Set on an island in the remote Scottish Hebrides Cala follows Euna a young woman who defies the coven with whom she lives and sets out to find her own destiny Legge’s prose is dreamy and vague and reading this book feels rather like seeing the world off kilter it’s refreshing and strange and watching the relationship dynamics of the characters shift as the book goes on is absolutely fascinati
