    Shuggie Bain PDF/EPUB Ç ¿ eBook cricketworldcuplivestreaming.co shuggie epub, bain kindle, Shuggie Bain KindleThis book should become reuired reading for young adults It made me understand addiction and the addictive personality in a way I never understood before and I am a middle aged woman who once lived with an alcoholic and later with a prescription pill addict If I had read this book in my 20s maybe I would have made choices with better outcomes not only for myself but for those I was codependent withThe point where it clicked for me with this book and Dear Reader this is a spoiler but you already know this is a book about addiction was when Agnes ended a year of sobriety after being pressured to have a drink by her boyfriend Eugene My heart broke for Agnes and for her sons when Eugene brought her home drunk after that date Agnes had tried to resist but Eugene had no understanding of addiction and ignorantly thought that after a year of sobriety Agnes was a different person cured So before getting serious wit

    Shuggie Bain PDF/EPUB Ç ¿ eBook cricketworldcuplivestreaming.co shuggie epub, bain kindle, Shuggie Bain KindleShuggie Bain is a story about a family devastated by the effects of poverty abuse alcoholism and other devastating realities that came along with the Thatcher policies enacted in Glasgow in the 1980s This was a hard book to get through; it’s subject matter often so grim and shattering that I had to step away for awhile because of how effectively it was portrayed Well don

    Shuggie Bain PDF/EPUB Ç ¿ eBook cricketworldcuplivestreaming.co shuggie epub, bain kindle, Shuggie Bain KindleI’m left emotionally exhausted as this story comes to an endOne way I rate a book is by whether or not I worry about the characters when I’m not reading it if I find myself wondering what they’re doing while I’m at work or going about my daily businessShuggie and his family were often on my mind and I couldn’t wait to be reunited with them in the evenings when my day was done Being a mother myself I wanted to rescue Shuggie from his own I could almost feel the heaviness and smell the odor of the Bain house I wanted to get them all out of there Now mind you I don’t believe in violence but oh my Lord I sure wanted to outright punch than a few of the people who were responsible for Agnes’ drinking including her at times So do you see how involved I became in their lives how concerned I was?

    Shuggie Bain PDF/EPUB Ç ¿ eBook cricketworldcuplivestreaming.co shuggie epub, bain kindle, Shuggie Bain KindleThe nature v nurture enigma once again raises its head in this novel It’s a story about a single mother Agnes and her 3 children Catherine Leek and Shuggie It’s 1980s Scotland under the Tory Thatcher government and its austerity and the way it treats the country as a colony We saw this when it used Scotland as a guinea pig for the Poll Tax Today with Boris as the Tory leader we see what the country thinks of the party with 6 MPs out of 58 in the London Parliament The welfare life is so bleak and depressing that people turn to anything to escape the poverty and pain usually booze T

    Shuggie Bain PDF/EPUB Ç ¿ eBook cricketworldcuplivestreaming.co shuggie epub, bain kindle, Shuggie Bain KindleThis superb story is essentially in three parts In the first and final parts we encounter Shuggie after he has physically escaped the events of the lengthy middle portion I thought the first part was too long and caused a wrench when the book stepped back ten years moving into the second section taking Shuggie back to his childhood especially as the reader really needed some knowledge of the main events in order to process this first section This is a minor complaint; the author picks us up and carries us along once we meet Shuggie's familyThe bulk of the main story concerns Shuggie's mother Agnes an alcoholic struggling and struggling is the word to control her alcoholism bring up three children experience some sort of life realise her hopes and ambitions and negotiate the people around her Her love for her kids is manifest but she and they are doomed by drink feckless lovers vi
