Pocahontas eBook Ò Mass Market Paperback

Pocahontas I was very disappointed by this book, since I expected an accurate account of Pocahontas s life rather than a tale that basically reproduces the falsehood created by Disney, the only difference being the presence of adult material in this work Indeed, Susan Donnell seems to have no respect for historical evidence which clearly states that Pocahontas and John Smith were NEVER

have no respect for historical evidence which clearly states that Pocahontas and John Smith were NEVER romantically involved the former may have had a girlish crush on him, which indeed could have developed into a stronger attachment But the point is that it is very likely that this attraction remained one sided and her love was unrequited Instead of trying to build a worthy story based on those facts, the author insists on painting a torrid love affair between a 13 14 year old girl and a 30 year old man, disregarding all evidence to the contrary, which as a descendant of Pocahontas I thought was highly disrespectful and irrational she of all people should know better Not to mention that even in purely fictional terms, the relationship described is slightly disgusting as it borders on pedophilia Donnell takes it even further by suggesting that when she visited London for the first time, Pocahontas found herself in the arms of John Smith all over again, although she was by then married to John Rolfe and the mother of a son Again, this is a blatant distortion of the recorded historical facts, which simply declare that Pocahontas and John Smith indeed met in London, and even that this meeting overwhelmed her, probably for the reason mentioned above, namely that it is possible that Pocahontas WAS attracted to Smith, and suffered from the fact that he never returned her feelings Instead of depicting this, which could have been very interesting andto the point, historically accurate, Donnell makes Pocahontas, her alleged ancestor, into an adulteress And don t even get me started on the writing style of this so called novel I was frankly astounded to find such painfully obvious, cliche and over the top descriptions such as the following, which made it to my top 3 he was a god to her , his eyes were as blue as the sky AND he felt weakened by the intensity of his hunger for her body But he was equally fascinated by her personality I will refrain from commenting on these, and simply say 3 words that illustrate my reaction to reading this book OMG and NOT in a good way, obviously Oh lords, this is bad Bad, bad, bad.Which is quite sad, as it was written by one of Pocahontas descendant so I was expecting something a bitclose to the truth as we know it but this is like an adult fanfic of the Disney movie, heavily romanticized in the most ridiculous ways.I m far from an expert on the subject but even I cringedthan once at all the things Pocahontas does for the love of John Smith Like betraying and murdering people WTF I m not saying she wasn t intereste Oh lords, this is bad Bad, bad, bad.Which is quite sad, as it was written by one of Pocahontas descendant so I was expecting something a bitclose to the truth as we know it but this is like an adult

Smith Like betraying and murdering people WTF I m not saying she wasn t interested in the newcomers and wanted to build something maybe between the two worlds but here the colonists CLEARLY bid time, lie and make a full of Pocahontas father and yet, at some point she actually blame her father when he finally has enough just because HER LOVE Reading this, the colonists are the victims and Pocahontas is their greatest defender against her own people Please Kill me now This is just so sad because I imagine she was a clever child yet she s younger when she met John Smith first, another weird thing that this novel add peodophilia much Not matter how unique she s still a child man that grew up to be an amazing woman with a fascinating short life and none of it shows in this book It s sad that all her descendant could think to write about her famous ancestor, even with research so she says was how Aauuwwtt John Smith was A lot of people don t know about Pocahontas oh sure, they ve all heard the cutesy Disney version of the story with the talking animals and the man who swept her off her feet But this book is one of the few books that really tells something closer to the truth Pocahontas was taken from her beloved family and brought across the ocean, and this book is written in a mostly accurate way, while still capturing the emotion as well. Let me just begin by letting you know I read this a while ago reviewless.One of my favourite accounts in history It ll never get old to me If you put the Disneyfied Pocahontas together with the film The New World based on the same events this novel would pretty much be the result Is it romanticised Are some facts questionable and shifted about to spice up Big time Though to be honest, I think it was to show the direction of Pocahontas life, and how the book was divided into two sections Let me just begin by letting you know I read this a while ago reviewless.One of my favourite accounts in

for major character development I found it so cool that the real life Pocahontas was the author s ancestor, and she did her research before penning anything down NOTHING is certain Philippa Gregory comes to mind with her take on Tudor history in her work Basically the story grew on me a lot Overall kinda sad, and actually fitting right now with the world s state TOTAL EXCITEMENT reading about the settings at Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle Love I really like books set in early America Typically I d rather find books set BEFORE the English Spanish French came to the Americas but it seems these types of books are rather hard to come across That being said, Pocahontas was a very great read I found it to be exciting We are travelling along with Pocahontas as history is being made The book portrays her as being pro English which I suppose must be true I had just never really thought about it in depth before It got me to wondering if I really like books set in early America

about it in depth before It got me to wondering if she could have known how things would eventually turn out for her people and their descendants would she have done anything differently Which leads to thoughts of how would things have been different if the English had not been able to establish a colony in Virginia Anyways that is really neither here nor there on the subject of the actual book, but I do love getting a book that makes you think about it even while not reading I found the characters to be well drawn and very intriguing, the book is very fast paced and even though it is quite big you don t really notice, as you read pages just fly by Mrs.Donnell s writing made me think of another book I really enjoy called Follow The River I d be interested in readingof her books if she has any set in the same time period subject This is my first go round with reading historical fiction on Pocahontas And I must say, it was a good experience I enjoyed this book very very much, considering my mom was against me buying it, since the cover was tacky as hell This book is living proof that don t judge a book by its cover It was well written and well researched, some parts seem a little bit too far fetched, but all the other good parts made up for it I ended up tearing up at the end, even though I know how the story ends.I This is my first go round with reading historical

Pocahontas and Terrance Malick s recent adaption of the story The New World In other words I loved it, great book I picked up this book because I really don t know much about Pocahontas, and I thought it would be interesting to read the story told from a direct descendant I don t know how much of this account is true or not, as it is fiction, but I would assume it saccurate than Disney s take.I

the book does a great job at giving details about the culture while staying in an insider s head about it all.Though, while I enjoyed Pocahontas, I can t say I really cared how John Smith was portrayed which, I have no idea of his real life personality, but the introduction of him isn t all that positive of an impression.However, I only read a hundred pages in The book was good and all, but in Chapter 5 Pocahontas becomes a woman, and then suddenly she is filled with sexual urges I almost stopped reading then, but I decided to continue on Cue next chapter, where John Smith is thinking about the sex he had before leaving England And it was muchgraphic than Pocahontas s lust a few pages earlier.So, after that incident, I no longer have any interest in finishing this book The farther this story goes, thelust and sex are brought up, and I m not interested in that kind of content I read this in high school, circa 2003 ish And even at that age I was furious that this book was in the school library In the Biography section, of all places It s a wildly inaccurate romance loosely inspired by history Very, very, VERY LOOSELY To be clear, I m not objecting to the sex or romance as a genre or sex in romances aimed at young adults I m objecting to the premise that Pocahontas and John Smith were ever involved the historical record clearly shows that they weren t She was T I
