The Miramichi Reader
... It is also a surprisingly joyful novel, with the purity and innocence of a child focused on her little world, even as war affects her home. ... The Boy's Marble is a true treasure.
I look forward to reading it again and again, as I expect I will do, in order to pull more pieces out of it each time.
I'm glad I read this book – (Natasa Nuhanovic is
talented making every sentence count)... one that somehow carried the lightness of a fairytale... from being so highly imaginable – and simmering in memories... but I do admit her delicately poetic style was at times deeply engaging and other times taxing my nerves.
All Lit Up
Amongst the many books that can be classified as war-fiction, this novel is different as it looks at this difficult tragedy through the eyes of a child in a, one could say, healthy way. The narrator does not sweep the painful and tragic memories under the rug, but she also does not place them onto her primary radar. The story unfolds in a way that does not burden the reader even more, but wakes in him hope, love and helps understand just how useless, meaningless and absurd war is. The story helps the reader find the strength and meaning to live without hate and recover a lost innocence. In essence, the novel is a brilliant anti-war story, very timely and necessary exactly now.
