"Journey" ni Patricia MacLachlan: Suring Basa

ni Felipe Dimaculangan

     Inilathala ng Yearling, at umani ng mga papuri mula sa iba’t ibang kilalang ngalang publikasyon ang “Journey” na sinulat ni Patricia MacLachlan. Kabilang sa mga ito ay ang School Library Journal, “ skillful use of first-person narrative pulls readers into the center of Journey’s life and rounds out the other characters marvelously.”; at The New York Times Book Review, “The best books written for children are those seemingly simple stories that acknowledge the love and fear and pain that drive our lives… Journey is a lovely example of just this kind of emotionally charged story.” Bagaman isang paglalakbay sa unang pananaw, pumapatungkol ang nobela sa isang batang nagngangalang Journey na iniwan ng kaniyang ina, at patuloy niyang hinahanap-hanap ang pantighaw-uhaw sa pagmamahal at kalinga sa sarili. 380 more words
