I DONT KNOW HOW BUT THEY FOUND ME

The Choke

Justine, abandoned by her mother when she was young and rarely visited by her largely absent, shady, womanising father, lives with her grandfather. Elliot Brown, Dylan's younger brother, attends to film his rockumentary on the band. I found this a dark and depressing story for the most part, albeit a powerful one, as I had a fair idea where it was heading from the start. Suffering from something between indifference and benign neglect at home, Justine is failing at school because she is dyslexic. Justine finds sanctuary in Pop's chooks and The Choke, where the banks of the Murray River are so narrow they can almost touch—a place of staggering natural beauty that is both a source of peace and danger.

The Choke

I was just an excuse. This compassionate and claustrophobic vision of a child in danger and a society in trouble celebrates above all the indomitable nature of the human spirit. What happens is you are suppose to be focused on what your eyes are viewing. But your weak mind chooses to worry about something negative whether real or not, past or future. Justine Lee is a little girl surrounded by males. The rest of the border is mainly lake, though in the far north it becomes tundra too cold and barren to fight over.

'Choke'

The Choke

It involves a young girl trying to navigate a confusing world without much support from the adults in her life. Justine's mother abandoned the family many years ago, and her father Ray is in and out of his children's lives, leaving the main responsibility for raising Justine and her brothers to their grandfather. He works with his best friend, Denny, who is also a reformed sex addict. The beauty of using is they turn one gun into several specialized guns, depending on the choke tube that is in the barrel. As far as I'm concerned, that was the stand-out thing about this novel. Take a scam foisted on well-meaning people by the sad sack principal character, Victor Sam Rockwell, who deserves better.

The Choke

The storey surrounds a young girl with dyslexia and unable to read who lives with her grand father in a semi-rural location near the Murray river. Tasty, crunchy breading and tasty dipping sauces - go for the lemon aioli and the garlic Dijon. Laguna has created a magnificent character in Justine Lee. A fabulous book that will have you feeling emotional and rather heart broken at times, but well worth reading. It's not limited to sports or competition. Sofie Laguna writes Justine's story so brilliantly that she gets deep into your heart and core, making you feel the same confusion, voicelessness and powerlessness that Justine does. Although Justine doesn't know it, her father is a menacing criminal and the world she is exposed to is one of great peril to her.

The Choke , From the winner of the Miles Franklin Literary Award by Sofie Laguna

The Choke

It took my breath away. I lay beside them and listened to the trees growing around us. The Choke is a brilliant, haunting novel about a child navigating an often dark and uncaring world of male power and violence, in which grown-ups can't be trusted and comfort can only be found in nature. Justine lived with her Pop as her father, Ray, was rarely around. After scouring yelp reviews, I dragged my family to the Choke Coach, parked outside Pezzini Farms.

The Choke

Dad Ray is a something again, a nothing. I made sure I grabbed firmly onto moments of hope, while simultaneously found myself shuddering at the treatment of a young girl who was forced to confront a cruel and unforgiving world, far too soon. I had shown him the Murray River. I could see the danger coming for Justine, but it was like watching a train wreck and not being able to do anything about it. Laguna can set up a scene, describe people struggling with all sought of challenges and not sway from the tough subjects. I would give it a nine out of ten. These include indifference, ignorance, neglect and violence.

It got better eventually or I got used to it. When he visits his mother one day, he meets Dr Paige Marshall, who takes care of her. Her father was a man who kept dark and dangerous secrets and it was a good thing that Justine was not in his care. His efforts to ensure Justine was not placed in care and stayed with her family had a redeeming quality. Just like a blumpkin, you have to know its coming. Mary Melbourne 2017-10-25 true Fantastic read. The weight this child carries is profound and incredibly painful to bear witness to.

I have never had an artichoke that fresh and wow did it make a difference. Sofie worked for a number of years as an actor at the same time as completing a Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology.
