The girl who loved Tom Gordon

Book Review   by:Louidger     Original Author: Stephen King
ª
This abstract was translated from La petite fille qui aimait Tom Gordon
 
Stephen King develops the theme of the Little Red Riding Hood in his own way, modern version, nothing too supernatural, however, nothing so terrible, it is found in the skin of its heroine, a young Trisha, nine years, which is lost in the forest. Everything is quickly established: flies, hunger, fear, but also courage and perseverance, even if it is not known where she will goes, Trisha walk, she advance, she settles down force and King household does nothing; taken on the feel sympathy for Trisha, but one feels at the same time as it will be no easy task. What a great lesson in courage! And as this story is distressing! Trisha''s walkman with her and she listens to the evening parties baseball. His hero is Tom Gordon, the Red Sox starplayer in Boston. The girl is just a bit foolhardy (but it will pay dearly, dearly believe in Stephen King!) If it is so ruthless, it is impotent: it can do nothing to help Trisha . The inevitable, nothing worse to describe the plight of this poor girl lost in the Appalachian Mountains. Everything goes from bad to worse for Trisha. A dozen pages enough for its author to plunge us into the heart of the matter. It will provide two hundred pages later, bruised and wounded in our turn. The end remains a mystery. Remember this: this novel is built in the style of a baseball game: it is divided into nine chapters than sleeves instead. And the work is dedicated to his son, Owen. No blood, no sex, no violence, but this is just the''histoire of a little girl who gets lost in the woods. I wait for the movie.
