Dark Horses review å eBook or Kindle ePUB characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Susan Mihalic Tends far beyond the stables and Roan's relationship with her father has long been inappropriate She has been able to compartmentalize that dark aspect of her life ruthlessly focusing on her ambitions as a rider heading for the Olympics just as her father had done However her developing relationship with Will Howard a boy her own age broadens the scope of her vision At the intersection of a commercial Dark Horses could have been a compelling novel if it had rung true or let readers think for themselves Every response to horrific acts of sexual abuse were described graphically and the narrator exhilarated in giving the reader the correct emotional and rational response to each incidentRoan is 15 years old almost 16 and lives with her parents on a large Virginia horse ranch that specializes on breeding the best of horses Roan s mother is an substance abuser and alcoholic and is emotionally absent Roan s father has sexually abused Roan since she was six and no one has intervened to put a stop to in Roan even told her mother about the abuse but her mother chose not to actRoan s goal is to be a fantastic horse rider and someday make it to the Olympics Her father is her coach and she obeys him with fear and loathingOf course I found the graphic sexual scenes disturbing but what I found disturbing was the rational hat that Roan wore as she analyzed the outcome of each act exploring what she might gain or lose based on her father s action and mood Her father is a malignant narcissist whose self worth comes from illusions of how grand and wonderful he isAs a clinical social worker I found the whole book troubling The writing was melodramatic and for the most part did not portray what real victims of abuse go through Victims of abuse become so traumatized that they become confused about the role of their abuser I have worked with hundreds of sexually abused people and Roan demonstrates that she is different from all of them She maneuvers her father for her own gain and her pain appears superficial except at the endI wish the author had allowed me to make my own assumptions about the book rather than have Roan endure her abuse and then tell me what she felt afterwards and what it all meant It was almost like a Greek chorusI have recently read My Dark Vanessa and that novel spoke to the truth of sexual abuse than Dark Horses did

Dark Horses review å eBook or Kindle ePUB characters ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Susan Mihalic Page turner and urgent survivor story Dark Horses takes the searing themes of abuse and resilience in Gabriel Tallent’s My Absolute Darling and applies the compelling exploration of female strength in Room by Emma Donoghue In much the same way that VC Andrews’s Flowers in the Attic transfixed a generation of readers Susan Mihalic’s debut is set to a steady beat that will keep you turning the page I was sent a free ARC of this book by Gallery Books in exchange for an honest reviewSoapy and melodramatic Susan Mihalic s Dark Horses follows Roan a high school junior and euestrian prodigy navigating an absent mother and a long history of sexual abuse at the hands of her father in the midst of preparing to join the olympic euestrian team I have a few issues with this book rooted in its being pretty clear cut tragedy porn a la Flowers in the Attic for over 90% of its very long duration The rape is graphic the sex is graphic and unrealistic the conclusion is graphic but these images don t lend much to the story other than shock value and fall flatter the longer they go on This book really wants to illustrate sex but never seems to really want to discuss or explore the depths of why Roan is so troubled with her sexuality what it means for her truly The prose falls flat and deprives the story of much nuance so while the subject matter is incredibly adult the writing feels very YA in a bad way Roan s clear and certain shirking of the so called victim mentality a dismissive and violent word in itself feels annoying and unsympathetic given the emotional turmoil that this story drags its reader through The situation of the mother seems all too convenient not to mention that I don t believe for a second that a fifteen year old no matter how dedicated they are to their sport would have genuinely no interest in having a cell phone or social media I mean come on I was going to say this book is 100 pages too long but ultimately it s 350 pages too long if you re looking for than a weak horse girl trauma porn romp
