    [EBOOK/EPUB] (The Wind Singer) Oh my goodness I read this book when I was about eleven years old and I've been searching for it every since No really You know those books you read as a kid that kind of stayed with you but you can't remember the title? That was this book I searched for it in the library rooting through the orange coloured books I scoured titles for something with Wind in it That's all I could remember And then by some bizarre chance

I can describe this book in one word Strange In fact it was so strange I could hardly relate to any characters as they and their situations were so unbelievablebut let me start the things I did like The dystopian fantasy world where long ago the manth people who were settlers found salt mines and made their wealth Travellers from the desert plains built the wind singer a contraption that when the wind blows a tune is played that keeps the manth people happy But the morah an all powerful spirit lord which appeared to consist of a legion of consciousness threatened the city long ago so they were forced to give a part of the wind singer away leaving it non functioning So its up to our 3 heroes to retrieve itI liked the city of Aramanth descriptions where exams are everything and everyone must sit the same exam in order to get a rating which will determine theirs and their family s status in society and where they live The leaders of this society believe the exams are fair giving eual opportunity to all For me this reminded me of my school days and how our education system is today and it may also raise uestions on whether this type of testing today really is fair on everyoneIn fact at one point some characters did point out that if they were tested on things they knew then their whole rating would be differentBut that s basically it when it comes to good development I do appreciate that this book is aimed for much younger audiences but strongly do feel it could have been made believable Nearly all the situations the characters were in were extremely far fetched which had me eye rolling and cringing most of the time The characters themselves were seriously 2D cutouts that lacked all kinds of depth I mean they did dramatic things without even a thought for the rest of their family nor did they seem to care about themselves and their own wellbeing Talk about self destruct I also felt this book was sugarcoated too much for my liking too with violent scenes bogged down and heartwarming moments that made me want to throw the book across the room I should also mention that the last uarter is so fast paced its like the author wanted to rush and get the book finished Huh he probably realised what a crappy job he d done and decided he wanted out lolI would not recommend this book to anyone over the age of 12 as the young and unbelievable characters are likely to appeal to children and young children at that

I was very disappointed in The Wind Singer by William Nicholson It seems to be an overly simplistic message book about the value of nonconformity but that message is garbled by many other messages many of which I can only hope were unintended How this ever won an award is beyond meI didn t mind the prologue while reading it but it did bother me that the central uestions raised in it Who are the mysterious strangers who came to Aramanth and built the wind singer Why did they build it How did they come by the silver object that gives the wind singer voice Etc are not answered nor do they seem to be central to the story Instead the wind singer seems to hold much the same function as a deus ex machina except that instead of solving a problem within the story it s used to kick the whole thing offThen we get into the first chapter in which we meet the Hath family and which starts with a string of nonsense words that we soon discover are intended to be cuss words To make matters worse the speaker is Ira Hath mother of the children who are the main viewpoint characters Bowman and Kestrel and their baby sister Pinpin Ira s entire dialog in the first chapter consisted of these cuss words and simple two or three word sentences bewailing fate plus she was incapable of dressing herself thrusting her arms through the seams of her dress instead of into the arms leaving me to wonder if we were supposed to interpret her as mentally challenged Then the whole family heads off to Pinpin s first test an extremely important and public event with Ira still wearing the torn gown and no one worried or making a comment about it not even the snippy neighbors or the arrogant officials in a society where one s clothing or at least its color is indicative of one s social standingI was bothered by social issues that were not directly or only peripherally related to those at the core of the story s message The Hath parents were kind loving and understanding but Ira Hath in particular was incapable of regulating her own actions and this was contextualized as a good thing even though her actions put her family at risk The mud people who lived underneath the city covered in mud that created by the effluvia of the sewers seemed a naive and simplistically rendered version of the stereotypical happy savage while the Ombaraka and Omchaka came across as a cross between nomadic peoples and clueless sports fans playing silly gamesNear the end of the children s journey the reader is told that Bo has become the natural leader of the group although in many ways it was Kestrel s courage and steadfastness that kept them going I surprised and bothered me not just because from that point forward Bo a boy displaced Kestral a girl from the leadership position but also because it wasn t in keeping with my interpretation of the story and the relationships between the children up to that point They each had their roles and worked very well together as a team but none of them would have made it on their ownI also found the actions of the heroes in defending themselves against the old children and the Zars to be disturbing But it wasn t really their actions so much as their lack of emotional conseuence for their actions Each of the children kills and none of them suffer emotional conseuences as a result For anyone much less a child to kill and feel no real remorse or upset is psychopathy This was especially disturbing to me after Mumpo and Bo were turned into Zars and then rehabilitated for it suggests that the Zars are just as much victims of the Morah as anyone else perhaps soFinally the Morah and the hold she held upon the people of Aramanth is problematic for it suggests that the people of the city were not responsible for their actions right or wrong If all of the people in the city were victims of mind control then we can hold none accountable for their actions with the possible exceptions of Kestral Bo and maybe MumpoAll in all I found this book intensely dissatisfying It was competently enough written but it struck exactly the wrong political and social notes for me over and over again While I chose not to restrict my now grown children s reading this is not a book I would have put in their hands and I would have felt the need to talk with them about my concerns
