    [PDF] My Abandonment AUTHOR Peter Rock – Epub and DOC Summary My Abandonment I have mixed feelings about this book It was a fast thought provoking read; but it left me with many unanswered uestions particulary since it was based on a true case The beginning of the book seemed to include many facts that had been published in news articles but the ending was Peter Rock's fictional version I found some of this not to fit the characters The reference to Elizabeth Smart in the Acknowledgments was disturbing to

Summary My Abandonment

Summary My Abandonment My Abandonment Download Ì 2 Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Peter Rock Nd a garden even keep a library of sorts Once a week they go to the city to buy groceries and otherwise merge with the civilized world But one small mistake allows a backcountry jogger to discover them which derails their entire existence ultimately. A compelling and thought provoking book I live in Portland so I was familiar with the setting in Forest Park the city I was also familiar with the true story behind this novel A father daughter spent four years living in Forest Park in a shelter the father built He home schooled the daughter using his own knowledge a set of encyclopedias The father was a veteran had a small military pension so they were able to go into the city buy groceries clothing as needed go to the library They used a nearby creek for washing grew vegetables When they were found living there the girl age 12 13 tested far above average academicallyPeter Rock s book is based on their story takes off from there Caroline is the narrator though I ve read some criticism of Rock s writing in this regard I thought it was very well done Her voice is simultaneously innocent and fierce very detached yet filled with the ghost of hidden anger sadness Rock uses Caroline s perspective language ability which is high but spare in its expression throughout It s apparent that Father taught Caroline many things but he never taught her much about feelings or how to express them When he wants to talk to her about important things he does so in a very factual way or he uotes from his favorite writers Caroline is never going to do the reveal Her life is all about hiding She is reporting what she wants us to know that s all you re going to get I enjoyed the spare detached uality of the writing which seemed sometimes elegiac sometimes so brutally factual I could hardly breathe I find my reaction to many books is that they need an editor This is not one of those The first part of the book is almost idyllic as you learn about Father Caroline s lives in the park The relationship between them seems sweet at first but always has an edge that leaves you wondering Of course they are eventually found the rest of the book focuses on their journey after that One thing I really enjoyed about the book was its very subtle creepiness What sounds idyllic isn t First foremost we re not really sure about Caroline s relationship with Father We know that they care for one another as best they can in their own ways But we know Caroline is in or entering puberty and an unanswered uestion is how this might affect her relationship with Father When they re not in the woods things can be scary Caroline talks about living in a hotel that s about to be torn down how she has to negotiate through the partially ruined building stay locked up when Father isn t there to stay safe Father negotiates with people who are stealing transporting copper wire There is some harrowing information about people who are tapping into electricity Caroline finally reveals a little about her past which brings up other uestions about her relationship with Father My heart stopped for a moment when she mentions in passing handcuffs Who is Father really Rock is genius at giving a mostly sympathetic portrayal of a man who was at best unconventional caring smart a victim of PTSD or at worst a kidnapper child molester high functioning mentally ill person These glimpses of who Father is or might be left me wondering which was fine with me I also thought Rock s handling of Father s gradual deterioration was very well done I thought Father as a character maintained his integrity throughout Can a good man be misguided Of course Can an evil man be good in some ways Who knows Which kind of man was Father really As a reader you have to form your own conclusions In Caroline we see that we all learn from our circumstances and upbringing no matter what that is though we might be horrified by what s happened to her we also see that she s strong intelligent resourceful and detached Another source of subtle creepiness comes when Caroline starts to wonder about having a companion that she can bring into her life We are left wondering Is she just lonely at that point Does she think of her father think I too can choose someone make them mine How will this play out for her I think some reviewers felt confused by her actions toward the end She seems to be reaching for what we might call normal life with one hand rejecting it with the other I found this to be understandable within her character also It s pretty clear to me that she wantsboth How would you not I also loved the play on words themes that comes from thinking about abandonment within the context of this book Every problem I have comes from believing something to be true that is not true Caroline writes in her journal This is a powerful statement that might apply to most of us In Caroline s case particularly so This book brings up and leaves unanswered many uestions If you need your books tied up with neat pretty little ribbons so that you know what happened every character is typed and labeled you won t like it If you like to think draw your own conclusions you want a book with compelling characters subtle creepiness interesting setting yay Oregon a story that will stick with you this is for you

Summary My Abandonment My Abandonment Download Ì 2 Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Peter Rock Provoking a deeper flightInspired by a true story and told through the startlingly sincere voice of a young narrator Caroline Peter Rock's My Abandonment is a riveting journey into life at the margins and a mesmerizing tale of survival and hope . I had forgotten that My Abandonment was largely based on a true story The author s website haspdf copies of the articles he was drawing from Somebody from Oregon and maybe the Pacific Northwest in general might remember when this was in the news but I wasn t familiar with it The second half of the book is Rock s imagined version of what might have happened to Frank and Ruthie in this book the girl is called Caroline and her father goes by several names after they vanishedEntirely told in Caroline s straightforward even oddly matter of fact voice My Abandonment is a look at a life that s perfectly entirely normal to Caroline and completely alien to me and most readers She and her father live in a hidden camp in a national park apparently living off of his military pension It s definitely a strange way of life but her father obviously loves her very much in his own way and has been trying to provide for her in his own way It s pointed out that Caroline is very bright and has been remarkably well educated mostly from reading encyclopedias And yet bright as she is there s also an emotional strangeness to her voice probably from being a teenager with the same level of exposure to society at large as a small child would I liked that she was by no means a weak character even though she did defer to her fatherLater in the book Rock weaves in a few strands of story from the Elizabeth Smart case which I m uncomfortable about Ruthie and Frank are real people after all and presumably still alive I am not comfortable with writing a book transparently and obviously based on their life stories and adding an entirely new element to it view spoilerIt s heavily heavily implied though never outright stated that Caroline s father actually kidnapped her as a small child and raised her to believe that she was his daughter hide spoiler
