    Awe inspiring haunting heartfelt novel This is the best novel I read so far I could not put the book down but when I had to all I kept thinking about was I needed to know what happened next The synopsis of this book gave you a small insight of what to expect but when you start reading the story you will definitely get sucked into the depths of Cordelia King's love of being a fishing lobster man on their inherit right isl

    I absolutely adored the first 100 pages of this book the story of the Kings as children Cordelia's love for the sea and tradition and the magical realism elements If the novel had continued on in this vein I would have given it a full 5 stars Unfortunately the story took a significant turn with the James Harbor drug smugglingdeal

E Königin der Insel sein kann sich selbst ihrem Vater – und ihrem verheirateten Steuermann Doch das erweist sich als schwieriger als gedacht denn seit jeher lastet ein Fluch auf den Kings – und der fordert Opfer und beeinflusst das Leben der Familie nicht minder als das unergründliche alles verschlingende Mee. I absolutely loved this book It possessed everything I love in a novel great writing family and friends personal character flaws and growth And I would be remiss if I didn t mention how much I loved the author s skill in describing the environment Beautiful and lyrical A Superb atmospheric experience Plus the book had a mythical component which I really don t seek out in stories that I found fascinating I must track down another book by Mr Zentner soon I will miss these characters and will think of this book often

Alexi Zentner s The Lobster Kings an intriguing family saga told largely through the eyes of Cordelia Kings and Woody her aging father is so wonderfully constructed that readers will find it difficult to choose a stopping point between reading sessions Members of the King family have run things on Loosewood Island for almost three hundred years It all started for the Kings when Brumfitt Kings made his way there from Ireland in 1720 Brumfitt would virtually live alone on Loosewood for eight years before he was rather mysteriously blessed by the arrival of his future wife Their mythical marriage marked the beginning of a new American family that would over time become the lobster kings of the novelBut now time is catching up with the Kings and importantly it is catching up with the culture of the island itself The island has become somewhat of a haven for drug smugglers and perhaps even worse in the long run lobstermen from a neighboring island have begun to encroach on Loosewood Island waters despite the gentleman s agreement that had been peacefully in place for decadesWoody desperate to maintain the family s hold on the island and to protect the only way of life they have ever known does everything an old man can do to hold things together But he is a man without a son to take the reins when his aging body begins to let him down a weakness uickly recognized by those willing to fight Woody for what he considers his birthright What Woody does have however is Cordelia a daughter whom he sometimes tends to underrate as badly as his enemies underrate her The Lobster Kings is one of those stories that will leave readers thinking about its characters long after they have turned the book s final page The Kings might not be your typical American family but the relationship between this father and daughter has plenty to teach the rest of us about life Don t miss this one
