Characters Out of the EasyOut of the Easy

Free read Ç Out of the Easy 107 Uth dangling temptation at every turn and escalating to the ultimate test With characters as captivating as those in her internationally bestselling novel Between Shades of Gray Ruta Sepetys skillfully creates a rich story of secrets lies and the haunting reminder that decisions can shape our destin. Reading Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys lead me to conclude that there aren t enough YA books set in a the 1950 s and b New Orleans And yet only a writer of Sepetys skill and confidence could have successfully written such a story Out of the Easy is a murder mystery first a coming of age story second and about twenty other things in between It is a story of great complexity and yet paradoxically it is also a very simple one With Out of the Easy Sepetys confirmed that she s not merely a writer of YA historical fiction but that she s a Writer and that she measures up to the very best She is able to make her authorial voice completely invisible thus allowing her characters to fully form and take center stageOut of the Easy rose from its pages to create a story that unfolded right in front of my eyes like a play than anything else I wasn t a reader not exactly Sepetys had allowed me to become a spectator instead All I had to do was sit back and watch as the setting materialized in front of me into a full audio visual and olfactory experience The characters weren t far behind As soon as Josie Moraine spoke her first sentence My mother s a prostitute I knew we were going to get along and we did Each of us has wanted to be someone else somewhere else at least once in our lives but for Josie it s a matter of survival All she ever wanted was to be normal to be able to live and learn like everyone else without her mother s constant malicious meddling Josie s voice was clear as bell and she spoke to me until her problems became my problems and her heartache my heartache as well Willie said normal was boring and that I should be grateful that I had a touch of spice She said no one cared about boring people and when they died they were forgotten like something that slips behind the dresser Sometimes I wanted to slip behind the dresser Being normal sounded perfectly wonderful But Josie was not alone each of the characters was so uniue so alive and vibrant that they completely took over the story and left their author far behind Or so it seemed This is where Ruta Sepetys skill truly shows Her writing style is so clear so completely transparent that it never gets in the way of the story This ability or rather a choice makes even the characters emotions seem genuine not forced or manipulated but as real as yours or mine It s best that you go into this book knowing as little as possible not because it hides some staggering surprise but because its beauty is almost impossible to put into words The only way is to experience everything for yourself and if you ask me that s exactly what you should do
