episode of this tv show on Hulu as someone who really loved the book a lot before the adaptation was even announced I am a very big fan Kerry Washington as Mia is a really good choice also for personal reasons Pearl is my favorite character now Most of the time everyone deserves than one chance We all do things we regret now and then You just have to carry them with you Never in my life have I read any book any narrative that cared as deeply for all of its characters as this one did Little Fires Everywhere lives in the grey area leaving it impossible not to be invested impossible not to love every character and cry for every character and root for every character despite all their flaws I really struggle to characterize this book it s sort of a combination between a mystery and literary fiction and will probably work best for you if you re a fan of both Little Fires Everywhere is a very slow burn story about a small town thrown into disarray by a court dispute When an Asian baby given up by her mother is adopted by a white family it causes a spiral of events that lead to a scene of a house on fire and a family driven awayI think I ve already expressed this but this book is a masterpiece It s one of those books that I finished and then was just on my bed tearing up because it s so well crafted The reason this book is so fantastic is primarily structural we see the end and then we go back and see the beginning But anyway the reason this book works so well is the characterization There is so much to appreciate here I like that Moody is sort of written as the stereotypical jilted nice guy and and then we see nuance to that characterization I loved the complexity of the dynamic between poor characters and rich characters I loved how no character is black and white but they have definition nonetheless Of the approximately eleven person main cast Izzy is my absolute favorite Izzy is a ridiculously relatable character for me personally mainly through her relationship with her mom There s a line somewhere where Izzy says she thinks her mother sees her as such a demon that all her actions are framed in that light that was me And that is still me in my relationship with one of my parents The degree to which the narrative of this book validates her trauma and her feelings is incredibleAnd on another very personal note Mia kind of reminds me of another Some of you who follow me on this platform might now that my mom and I are really really close and I grew up with her as my main support system And I think her relationship with Izzy just felt so personal to me for that reason So maybe this was too personal a read for me but I m going to be honest it s my belief that reading is something that is meant to be personal And maybe the degree to which this personally affected me is the most important part of allThere s a scene within this book that has stuck with me since the beginning in which the adoptive mother of the baby is asked how she plans to incorporate Chinese culture into the life of the baby and she brings up oriental rugs and how she gives the baby rice And it s this awful moment because we know she loves that baby We do But in that moment she becomes the persecutor of her own child She does not understand and so she perpetrates a culture that has been trying to swallow up her child I think that s what this book is about in the end the degrees to which we can hurt people without ever attempting to This book was masterful And I hope you all read it Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtube Couleurs végétales of secrets the nature

summary Little Fires Everywhere 108 In Shaker Heights a placid progressive suburb of Cleveland everything is planned from the layout of the winding roads to the colors of the houses to the successful lives its residents will go on to lead And no one embodies this spirit than Elena Richardson whose guiding principle is playing by the rulesEnter Mia Warren an enigmatic artist and single mother who arrives in this idyllic bubble with her teenaged daughter Pearl and rents a house from the Richardsons Soon Mia and Pearl become than tenants all four Richar All her life she had learned that passion like fire was a dangerous thing It so easily went out of control 4 12 stars You should go into this book expecting what it is a slow moving character portrait filled with complex family dynamics and small town politics If you know what this is like with Ng s Everything I Never Told You and don t go into it expecting fast pacing and high octane drama you will probably find this uiet read to be extremely engrossing and emotionalI have to be in the mood for this kind of read but when I am it packs a powerful punch These characters are so vivid so real so caught up in the little fires of everyday life in Shaker Heights There s several stories going on in here but the book begins with literal fires lighting up the Richardson household and the knowledge that the youngest daughter Izzy the wild card has disappeared Presumably because she is guilty of the arsonThen we move back from there We start to get a portrait of the events leading up to this dramatic fire We see the poor artist Mia and her daughter Pearl move into town and the effect they have on all members of the Richardson family Further back we get the past stories of almost every character who comes into this book It is such a rich work in which the personal stories and experiences of secondary characters play a huge part in influencing how events unfoldAnd behind it all is a court case that will affect all the characters lives A custody battle over a Chinese baby who could be given every toy every desire every opportunity by her rich and white adoptive parents but is that all Is that enough when her poor birth mother is ready and willing to care for her Things become very tense The town becomes divided And I felt an emotional wreck by the end of it too Mrs Richardson however could not let Izzy be and the feeling coalesced in all of them Izzy pushing her mother restraining and after a time no one could remember how the dynamic had started only that it had existed always The Richardson family along with Mia and Pearl Bebe and the McCulloughs all pulled me into their lives I despised a character at one point only to find pity for them a couple of chapters later The relationship between Izzy and her mother was a real point of interest for me How Mrs Richardson s fears about Izzy affected her behaviour toward her which in turn affected how Izzy behaved All leading to the ultimate uestion was Izzy always what Mrs Richardson feared she was Or did Mrs Richardson create what she most feared through her treatment of IzzyLittle Fires Everywhere is a great example of how small character dynamics can create a powerful and fascinating story I love the empathy the author shows for all the people in this book even the manipulative morally corrupt and undeserving No one is merely good or bad And that is what makes the book so effective Whose side am I on I ll let you know if I ever figure it outBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube

summary Little Fires Everywhere 108 Dson children are drawn to the mother daughter pair But Mia carries with her a mysterious past and a disregard for the status uo that threatens to upend this carefully ordered communityWhen old family friends of the Richardsons attempt to adopt a Chinese American baby a custody battle erupts that dramatically divides the town and puts Mia and Elena on opposing sides Suspicious of Mia and her motives Elena is determined to uncover the secrets in Mia's past But her obsession will come at unexpected and devastating co 45 stars I was hooked while listening to the audiobook and finished it in 2 days The family dynamics tension and nuance is well done The themes about parenting and motherhood what is considered good parenting and who is a good mother was such an interesting exploration along with how white suburbia can be suffocating and push for conformity But most of all I loved the portrayal of well intentioned yet ignorant white and upperclass people and the gap between a privileged and white POV versus an immigrant in poverty It s done in such a subtle way that s not in your face and gives readers enough room to explore and think through these issues for ourselves The only reason why I hesitate to give this 5 stars is I don t think much was done with Mrs Richardson s kids for readers to care about I think the ending would have been impactful if the kids had been better developed and thus have a well rounded cast of characters
