The Lonely Hearts Hotel PDF

Heather ONeill

Joyful, funny and vividly alive Emily St John MandelThe Lonely Hearts Hotel sucked me right in and only got better and better . . . I began underlining truths I had hungered for Miranda JulyMakes me think of comets and live wires . . . raises goosebumps Helen OyeyemiA fairytale laced with gunpowder Kelly Link The Lonely Hearts Hotel is a love story with a difference. Set throughout the roaring twenties, it is a wicked fairytale of circus tricks and child prodigies, radical chorus girls, drug-addicted musicians and brooding clowns, set in an underworld whose economy hinges on the price of a kiss. It is the tale of two dreamers, abandoned in an orphanage where they were fated to meet. Here, in the face of cold, hunger and unpredictable beatings, Rose and Pierrot create a world of their own, shielding the spark of their curiosity from those whose jealousy will eventually tear them apart. When they meet again, each will have changed, having struggled through the Depression, through what they have done to fill the absence of the other. But their childhood vision remains - a dream to storm the world, a spectacle, an extravaganza that will lift them out of the gutter and onto a glittering stage. Heather ONeills pyrotechnical imagination and language are like no other. In this she has crafted a dazzling circus of a novel that takes us from the underbellies of war-time Montreal and Prohibition New York, to a theatre of magic where anything is possible - where an orphan girl can rule the world, and a ruined innocence can be redeemed.

Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel: A heart warming ... "Snowy Nights at the Lonely Hearts Hotel" was my first book by Karen King but it definitely won't be my last. I really really enjoyed this book. It had a wonderful christmassy and wintery atmosphere which I absolutely loved. Saffy, Logan and especially little Chloe were wonderful characters and I really liked them. I could really connect with
