Benitez's Writing Style

American Literature On-line Discussion

Now that we're midway through A Place Where the Sea Remembers, comment on the author's writing style. Find and type out a sentence or brief passage from the novel, and tell what about it you like--what the author has done well, how she uses language effectively in it, etc. (Conversely, you could comment on what you don't like about it--why it doesn't work for you, what about her style in that example affects you negatively, etc.) As always, comment on what others have said before you; agree with them or disagree with them, perhaps, when making your own comment on Benitez's writing.
