For the Love of God, Marie! summary ß 108 free download Û eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Jade Sarson Esults As we follow Marie from the sixties to the nineties we find out what it means to be a spirited young woman from a religious household who believes that maybe just maybe God doesn’t care WHAT you do with your body as long as it makes you happy Because really what harm can come from loving people. I don t write sex scenes I ve tried and they re terrible about as erotic as being scrubbed with concrete render In fact I m not too keen on reading them either most of the time I skip past them eyes averted grimacing in embarrassment as you would to a dirty old man flashing his bits at the bus stop Which is why when I saw the naked lady on the front cover of For the Love of God Marie my initial reaction was to reach for the book beside it then I saw it was published by Myriad so thought what the hell I usually love their books This one was no exceptionFrom the first page I was blown away by the art The clean lines the pink colour palette with the flash of orange for Marie s hair the attention to detail in every panel Some of the angles were amazing looking at the characters from high above from below the edge of a table in mirrors at the end of a boxing glove And while the story may not uite match up the bundling up of Marie s proclivity with her parent s religious rigour felt a touch pat and there are than a few how convenient moments it was never less than entertaining and was often especially around her relationship with Will a emotional and riveting readAs for all the sex Well that girl can sure draw a penis

For the Love of God, Marie! summary ß 108 free download Û eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Jade Sarson Marie is a girl with the gift of understanding who is often misunderstood both at home and in her Catholic school where she confounds her fellow pupils and teachers as she tries to understand and love those few special people who need her help to be themselves But understanding and loving people is hard. 15 starsSPOILERS AHEAD I have to admit that the blurb title and first few pages gave me an idea of this book that was completely different to what it turns out to be I initially thought that this would be a spiritual journey of a girl who has innocently misunderstood what the church teaches and genuinely believed that her sinful acts were acts she did out of faith And to be fair I don t think you can blame me for forming that first impression the title has the word God the cover a rosary and prologue of sorts was about Marie as a little girl wondering about the Catholic faithHowever despite having misleading beginnings I am not saying the rest of the book was just one disappointment after the other It was an intriguing story and definitely heartfelt Marie was an enchanting character aloof honest caring and I could even say very selfless And most other characters were well fleshed out Although this book seems to paint a very black and white distinction between homophobes and those who are accepting and most of those who are open to the LGBT comunnity seem to be members of it themselves with the exception of Will s father But I certainly missed people with good intentions who are just uninformed and confused about sexuality outside of heterosexual marriage but still honestly would like to understand it better This brings me to another point I also missed any real character development in any of the characters It was mostly look I am this person I have problems I live with them and now I m older and still have them Of course it s good to accept the things you can t change and learn to live happily with them but for a story it would ve been nice to see some character development There was a hint of Marie s mother coming to an understanding of her daughter after all those years but we never saw what became of her afterwards and the last time we hear mention of her she refuses to come to her granddaughter s wedding Especially with Marie herself and bearing in mind this is a book about her whole life I lacked to see any moments that stood out that shows any character development It was mostly her being tossed around in life and sort of just walking through it not really learning or reflecting on anything that has happened to her At the very ending she did say that every lover she took on changed her but as a reader I can t really see this in her portrayal Perhaps I m beng unfair and emotional and personal growth is not always visible from the outside but this is still a book intended for an audience Another thing that bothered me about the portrayal of Marie were the many allusions to prayer and God but it amounting to nothing at the end I didn t groundlessly thought the whole story was building up to as I mentioned earlier a spiritual encounter or enlightening for Marie but at the end she came to a very anti climatic conclusion that basically she has no idea about it all Additionally the story in general has uite a number of overly convenient events Marie s father dying of a heart attack because of shock that Marie has been going out with Prannath and that Will cross dresses Prannath dies right after they had sex once and Marie got pregnant the gay bar explodes but Will just happens to be outside and survives Agnes just happens to be her students mum etc You know what I mean All in all a fun read but uite rough here and there The idea was good but the execution could use some polishingJade Sarson ↠ 8 review
For the Love of God, Marie! summary ß 108 free download Û eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Jade Sarson Er than it sounds and Marie soon realizes that having faith and living in 1960s Britain doesn’t leave much room for those who are different from the norm They only really leave room for shame prejudice and oh yeah shame So Marie decides to do as she sees fit with some hilarious moving and unexpected r. Probably the loveliest book I read all year The writing is filled with a warmth that matches the narrative it s both sexy and sex positive and is wonderfully ueer with a fierce attitude that demands inclusivity and insists everybody deserves love The characters are endearing and flawed and the artwork is gorgeous expressive and detailed The colours are beautiful and the paper stock is impressive and changes hue as you get closer to the present day which is a subtle touch I really appreciated It manages to hit moments of tenderness and devastation nail real moments in relationships both good and bad but ultimately leave you with a joy and positivity that were much needed this year I don t usually like the term heart warming but it really is It s beauty for both eyes and soul and I came away feeling warm and fuzzy and wanting to spread at least a fraction of the love that Marie does Highly recommended
